Dr. Kommana One-On-One:

What personal history helped you become a better eye doctor?

“My medical training in various domestic and international settings (underserved societies, rural communities, and specialty hospitals) has helped me better understand and connect with my patients – allowing me to provide patient-centered care.”

What scholastic accomplishment are you most proud of outside of the operating room?

“Authoring multiple peer-reviewed publications in ophthalmology journals, leading several research projects, and participating in ophthalmology related podcasts have all been experiences I have found rewarding. It has been a great way to give back to the ophthalmology community when I am not in clinic or in the operating room.”

Stay at your best health!
