Suhas Tuli, MD, is a board certified ophthalmologist and fellowship trained in corneal and refractive surgery. She specializes in LASIK, refractive small incision cataract surgery with accommodating, diffractive and toric IOLs. She is one of the few corneal surgeons performing DSEK (Descemets Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty) surgery.
Dr. Tuli chose ophthalmology as her career to be able to make a difference to people. She also chose to be an ophthalmologist because it is one of the few medical specialties that represent the fine balance between the art of surgery and the knowledge of medicine. She has published extensively in peer reviewed ophthalmology journals, and has book chapters to her credit. In addition, she has spoken at several ophthalmology meetings, her field of expertise being corneal wound healing after LASIK and refractive surgery. She studied this under the tutelage of Drs. Walter Stark and Dimitri Azar at the prestigious Wilmer Eye Institute at John Hopkins University. Dr. Tuli completed her clinical fellowship in cornea and refractive surgery from the Doheny Eye Institute following her ophthalmology residency.
She understands the human eye from both clinical and research aspects which makes her especially suited to achieve optimal cataract surgery outcomes even in the most challenging of situations. Dr. Tuli believes in giving back to the community. She has performed cataract surgeries in charitable eye surgery camps in India and plans to continue doing so. She also has taught residents at the Doheny Eye Institute. She is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Dr. Tuli is a member of the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Staff providing care in general ophthalmology, cornea, cataract, refractive surgery and LASIK.
