Dr. Stevens specializes in ophthalmology, specifically corneal transplantation. He is board certified by The American Board of Ophthalmology.

Experience

For over 20 years, Dr. Stevens has been performing corneal transplantations. In 2001, Dr. Stevens began performing a new type of corneal transplantation – replacing just the back layer of the cornea. Currently, he is performing several newer modifications and better techniques such as DSAEK, DLEK, and DALK. These new techniques have markedly improved the effectiveness and safety of corneal transplantation for patients with a wide variety of corneal problems. As a refractive surgery patient himself, Dr. Stevens has firsthand experiences of the benefits of LASIK, PRK, ICLs, and other refractive procedures.

Practice

In 2000, Dr. Stevens opened his own practice with the vision to ensure that patients received quality medical care in a very caring environment. LASIK Center of Virginia is owned and operated by Garth Stevens, Jr., M.D. He began performing LASIK in 1996. He has performed over three thousand procedures. Dr. Stevens has certified over a thousand eye surgeons from around the country, as well as in Canada to perform laser vision correction. Dr. Stevens regularly lectures at VCU School of Medicine.

Education

Dr. Stevens received his doctor of medicine from the University of Virginia, and then completed two fellowships – one in cornea and external disease at Georgetown University, and the other in ocular immunology, at the National Eye Institute. Dr. Stevens is board certified in Ophthalmology.
