Plano, Texas (PRWEB) August 24, 2015
Dr. David Stager, Sr., is pleased to announce that he is joining the ophthalmology practice of his son, David Stager, Jr., MD, FACS, at 3801 W. 15th Street, Building A, Suite 110 in Plano, Texas. Dr. Stager, Sr. joins his son, Dr. David Stager, Jr., and Dr. Hanh Dinh in practice at the Plano ophthalmology office beginning on August 3, 2015.
“I’m delighted to be rejoining my son, Dr. David Stager, Jr. at his office in Plano,” Dr. Stager, Sr. said. “This move will allow me to focus my efforts on diagnosing and treating strabismus and restoring healthy vision to patients with misaligned eyes."
Dr. Stager, Sr. attended Medical School and completed residency at Ohio State University. Following two years of military service, he pursued his fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus at Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. with renowned pediatric ophthalmologists Dr. Marshall Parks and Dr. Frank Costenbader. During 20 years of private ophthalmology practice, the elder Dr. Stager has been extensively involved in research, teaching, and lecturing around the world and has authored over 153 publications on conditions of the eye.
Dr. Stager, Jr. completed medical school and residency in ophthalmology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas and pursued a fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, as his father did, at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. under the tutelage of Dr. Marshall Parks. Dr. Stager, Jr. serves on the board of directors of the Retina Foundation of the Southwest and is a member of numerous professional organizations including the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS).
Dr. Dinh received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Louisiana, and then worked as an ophthalmic technician for two years before returning to school to pursue a graduate degree at Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Dinh received the Pediatric and Binocular Vision Clinical Excellence Award at NSU and graduated with honors and distinction, then went on to residency in primary care with an emphasis in Pediatrics. She is a member of the American Academy of Optometry, the College of Optometrist in Vision Development, and the Broward County Optometric Association.
Strabismus, or misaligned eyes, is an often-misunderstood condition. Sometimes erroneously thought to be a purely cosmetic problem, strabismus can cause double vision, split vision, eyestrain, headaches, and other problems. Previously considered to be a condition that must be corrected during childhood, now strabismus is recognized as a disorder that can be successfully treated in adults. It’s estimated that as many as 4% of American adults have some degree of eye misalignment.
