Zvi Aviner, M.D. – Glaucoma Management & Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Zvi Aviner, M.D.Doctor of Ophthalmology

From Theory to Practice

“I always knew I wanted to work with people, to help them. However, a background in math and physics does not necessarily lead you down that path. When it came to choosing between the lab and medical school, the choice was clear. It’s an absolute privilege to be able to improve God’s gift of sight when it becomes damaged or defective.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked all over the world, from Africa to Arkansas, and the joy expressed by the people I’ve helped needs no translation. I’ve never once regretted leaving the lab behind.”

From Practice to People

“Joining Dr. LaHaye and his exceptional medical team has been a very nourishing experience. We’re in an environment where iron sharpens iron. As a published glaucoma specialist, I feel I’m enabled here to put into practice the latest research and technologies to treat this devastating disease. “This is especially significant here in Louisiana, where the prevalence of blindness
due to glaucoma surpasses the national average. We have patients here who are actually losing their vision as early as age 35. The good news is that we own some of the most advanced equipment in the country to detect this disease in its earliest stages. That’s no surprise, knowing that everything Dr. LaHaye is involved with is state-of-the-art. With all of this talent and technology available to our patients, there’s no reason to be a victim.”

From Medicine to Memories

“I remember one older gentleman who was legally blind because of a severe eye disease. With God’s help, we were able to restore his sight. He was able to see his wife of 20 years for the first time after surgery. This ‘unveiling’ was truly something to witness. It was a moment I’ll never forget. Just knowing that this procedure has changed both of their lives for the better reassures me of my calling.”
