Mathew Swanic MD

Doctor Details

Dr. Swanic grew up fascinated by technology where as a teenager he would find himself taking apart and building computers. This furthered his belief that he would pursue a career in computer engineering, which was his major when he started college. He began working in a doctor’s office to help pay for college expenses. While there he began to consider a career in medicine. Not only could he do something interesting and challenging but he could also change people’s lives in the process.

Ophthalmology is so technologically advanced that I have found a way to integrate my love of technology into my love of medicine. Ophthalmology affords me the ability to see and treat complex diseases. I love that I am able to operate, perform procedures in clinic, and treat conditions with medicines every week.”

 

Dr. Swanic is a corneal subspecialist. This carefully chosen specialty allows him to gain advanced training in refractive surgery and allows for a deeper understanding of complex eye conditions that affect the front of the eye. His extensive knowledge of the Cornea affords him the opportunity to treat patients that have advanced corneal disease, have undergone corneal transplantation, or refractive surgical treatments such as LASIK.

 

I am amazed at the advances that have occurred in ophthalmology over the last century. Humans have been attempting to treat cataracts for over 2000 years and up until the last century your treatments were crude and very dangerous. Ophthalmology figured out how to remove lenses safely in the 1900s and then went on to find ways to place lenses inside the eye, which leads to the incredible visual performance we see in our cataract patients today. This field is constantly advancing and I am sure that by the end of my career I will be even more impressed with what my field is capable of achieving.”

 

Ophthalmology affords Dr. Swanic the ability to see and treat complex diseases every week while at the same time allows him to be there to assist his patients through what can be a rather scary time. He is proud to be the first person in his family to enter medicine and proud to have received my ophthalmic training at some of the top programs in the country. Where he can now bring that caring and training to the citizens of Los Angeles.
