About Dr. Burger

Dr. Burger’s primary interest and practice was in the fitting of Specialty Contact Lenses. Contact lenses can be used not only for common vision problems, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, but can be used for various medical conditions to improve a patient’s vision. Eye diseases due to corneal irregularity will cause decreased vision. These patients will benefit from the use of contact lenses. The contact lenses will dramatically improve the vision and the quality of life for these patients. Conditions that benefit from contact lenses include: keratoconus, pellucid degeneration, corneal transplants, and corneal scars. Dr. Burger has helped patients see better for 50 yrs. Dr. Burger continues to teach in our clinic and share his expertise with patients and students.
