In 1998 Dr. Faust began performing PRK and LASIK procedures. He decided to concentrate on these new refractive procedures so he moved to Florida where there was greater demand for these surgeries.
Dr. Faust has treated diabetic and macular degeneration and retinal vein occlusion with laser treatments as early as 1983. With the new treatments for these patients now available with intravitreal medicines, Dr. Faust has decided to direct his focus to using these new treatment modalities to treat Medical Retina Patients.

Dr. Faust will also be diagnosing and treating patients with Glaucoma requiring medical and laser treatment.
