My First Love

“I love practicing medicine I think that’s why I decided to specialize twice! I started off in internal medicine, but grew more fascinated with eye care and the advancements being made in the field. Healthy eyesight is good medicine. I feel I can say that wholeheartedly, as an internist and an ophthalmologist. “Just seeing the transformations that occur from corrected vision is nothing short of miraculous. That’s exactly what inspires me to keep up-to-date on the latest advancements in eye medicine from laser surgery to pink eye.”

What Matters Most

“I’ve been in Louisiana for over eight years now, and I honestly feel it has the most charming people in the world. They have a real sense of proportion, of what really matters. There’s passion in what they do, but it’s never outweighed by the importance of family and friends.“ I think Dr. LaHaye is representative of this ideal. His passion to bring Louisiana
the best eye care possible helped rekindle my own love of medicine and desire to challenge myself — and my patients. The best part is, he’s assembled an entire team of doctors, nurses, and support staff who share this desire. It’s an energy you feel the moment you walk through the door.”

My Favorite Day of the Week

“You’ve got to be here on Thursdays. It truly is a “SUN-day” to us. That’s the day when the bandages are removed from LASIK, and people can see what they haven’t seen in years! There are lots of tears on that day, including my own.“ This is why I studied medicine in the first place. To experience moments like these and more. When you think about what we’re able to do these days, especially with the advancements in eye care, it absolutely boggles the mind. I feel honored
and challenged and elated that I’m part of a team that can bring you tomorrow’s technology today.”
