As always, it’s good to hear from the men on the topic at hand. On any topic, it’s good to go to the collective wisdom of the men and see what is to be shared and revealed. This month we hear from the men posting on social media, in answer to this question: “What is your father’s legacy?”
Family community and advocacy.
My dad was an eye surgeon who pioneered cataract surgery by replacing the disease lens with a man-made lens. He fought an uphill battle against the establishment, until it was accepted. It’s now the most common surgery in America. He also pioneered Radial keratotomy and the use of lasers on the eyes. Again the establishment fought him. This procedure threatened the eyeglass companies and the opticians. It’s now widely practiced and accepted. Though he didn’t invent these procedures, he brought them to the forefront.
The love of hockey, the need to investigate and get to the deeper truth of the matter, and hating the San Fransisco Giants.
Community Service, Auto Racing Fan, Recovery from Alcohol… I loved my Dad… Miss him everyday… Oh, and me and my siblings….
Very respected Family Doctor. Kind, soft-spoken, very curious.

Me and my brother and his children.

I’ll let my dad tell you himself.
