Jacob K. Thomas, MD

The American Board of Ophthalmology recently recognized eye surgeon Jacob K. Thomas, MD, of Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center as having met its rigorous standards for certification.

“Board certification” is granted only to ophthalmologists who meet a series of accredited medical training requirements in Ophthalmology, sign a pledge indicating their intent to practice with compassion, integrity and respect for human dignity, and complete an intensive evaluation process which includes both written and oral examinations.

Board certification signals that a physician has successfully completed an evaluation designed to assess the knowledge, experience and skills requisite to the delivery of patient care that meets the specialty’s high standards.

Thomas, a graduate of Drury University in Springfield and University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine, completed a residency in Ophthalmology and a fellowship in cornea and external diseases of the eye at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Earlier this year, Dr. Thomas returned to Springfield and Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center as an anterior segment surgeon specializing in treatment of corneal diseases.

Appointments to see Dr. Thomas can be scheduled by calling Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center at (417) 886-3937.
