Andrew Perin, MD

Dr. Perin chose a fellowship at the Duke University Eye Center for the quality and breadth of clinical and surgical experiences and didactics in Glaucoma. He hopes to continue his career educating other eye care and glaucoma providers and research areas such as drug toxicity to the eye, the affect of sleep pattern on intra ocular pressure curves, and the surgical management of glaucoma.
