I would like to thank the wonderful team at Ocala Eye for putting together a short ‘Bio’, which I sampled below 🙂
Ocala Eye Bio
Vishwanath Srinagesh, M.D., practices comprehensive ophthalmology and specializes in the latest small-incision sutureless cataract surgery techniques, premium lens implant technology, and vision-enhancing refractive surgery. “Dr. Vish” joined Ocala Eye in 2015 after completing his ophthalmology residency as Chief Resident at the Krieger Eye Institute in Baltimore, Maryland.
Dr. Vish garnered Magna Cum Laude honors at Union College in New York while completing his bachelor’s degree in Biology, and later finished a master’s of science degree in Healthcare Management from Union Graduate University. Dr. Vish earned his Doctor of Medicine at Albany Medical College in May 2011. During his time at Albany Medical College, he discovered his passion for Ophthalmology after spending time shadowing private practitioners in clinic and surgery. In addition to providing care for his patients, Dr. Vish stayed actively involved in ophthalmic research and authored several studies investigating the treatment of Dry Eye. Recognition in research has led Dr. Vish to present his findings at physician conferences and for publication in national journals.
During his Ophthalmology training, Dr. Vish also found opportunities to reach out to those less fortunate and assist in providing their medical care. While in Baltimore, he participated in special clinics that provided eye exams and medical care to the homeless population. He was also a member of the Health Equity Task Force which sought to reduce disparities in access to healthcare within the region.
Personal interests for Dr. Vish include a passion for tennis and the arts. Dr. Vish has enjoyed coaching youth tennis and organizing tournament play at city facilities. He also instructs children and adults in fundamentals of oil painting.
Dr. Vish holds professional memberships with the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the American Medical Association.
