Soshian Sarrafpour, MD




Soshian Sarrafpour, MD, is a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist who sees patients with cataracts, glaucoma, and other anterior segment eye diseases.

As a medical school student, Dr. Sarrafpour chose his specialty after seeing how grateful patients were after visiting their ophthalmologist. “Nothing cheers me up more than seeing a returning patient,” he says. “I enjoy listening to patients speak about how their treatments have affected their lives—from improving their golf game to being able to appreciate how colorful the world is.”

When patients have eye disorders that cannot be cured, Dr. Sarrafpour tells them that researchers are constantly investigating how to improve treatments.

“No one should ever lose hope,” Dr. Sarrafpour says. “We never know which treatments may come up in the future,” he says.

His research interests cover machine learning, glaucoma imaging, and minimally invasive procedures.
