About Dr. Seibel

Dr. Barry SeibelWhen it comes to the quality of your vision, we understand that nothing is more important to you than choosing the most skilled and caring eye surgeon.

We invite you to read more about Dr. Seibel and his approach to patient care, continually expanding his knowledge base and refining his surgical skills – all for your best possible experience!

One of Dr. Seibel’s major contributions to medicine is his textbook on cataract surgery, “Phacodynamics” – used by eye surgeons worldwide for learning the science behind cataract surgery specific to patients as individuals rather than a generalized approach. Last released in its 400-page Fourth Edition, this classic text has also been welcomed in Japanese and Spanish among other translations. Having mastered the principles in his textbook, Dr Seibel is among the very few (about 1%) of US surgeons to routinely use Dual Linear Pedal Control for the greatest finesse and safety for his patients.

Dr. Seibel’s innovative instruments are some of the most useful designs in the field of eye surgery with applications for cataract, LASIK, and glaucoma procedures.
