Dr. Satya Reddy with Ophthalmologist, Louisiana Cornea Specialists

Following medical school at the University of Kentucky and an ophthalmology residency at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Satya Reddy performed a self-assessment that led him to Chicago, where he completed a cornea fellowship at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary.

"When you're considering the cornea procedures, it comes in very technical dimensions," Reddy explains, noting measurements in microns (one-millionth of a meter).
