2018 is shaping up to be a banner year at Eye Medical Clinic! Faithfully serving the San Jose area for more than 60 years, we’ve earned a solid reputation for excellence in advanced vision services, including surgery and comprehensive eye care.
We have an exciting announcement! Mona Bagga, MD, a renowned, board-certified ophthalmologist with fellowship training in cataracts and glaucoma, will join our team in early 2018. This new partnership takes our practice to the next level!
“I’m excited to join Dr. Sullivan and the amazing team at Eye Medical Clinic. I’m ready to help bring the practice to the next level with innovative procedures for glaucoma and cataracts,” said Dr. Bagga. “Even though the practice has such a great history in San Jose, in many ways I feel like it’s a newborn that I get to help raise. I’m excited to bring pioneering procedures to restore sight and improve lives, and I can’t wait to delight our patients.”
Dr. Bagga brings a lot to the table, ophthalmologically speaking (say that 10x fast!). She has deep experience in cataract and glaucoma treatment, and uses a combination of advanced medical, surgical, and laser procedures to improve her patients’ vision and quality of life. In addition to thousands of conventional glaucoma surgeries, such as trabeculectomy and glaucoma drainage implants, Dr. Bagga has performed hundreds of minimally-invasive glaucoma procedures using iStent, Trabectome, and Canaloplasty. She was the first surgeon in Arizona to perform the iStent procedure for glaucoma.
Dr. Bagga’s skill set is a welcome addition, and we are very excited to add cataract surgery, premium lens implants, and the surgical treatment of glaucoma to the list of services we are now able to offer our patients.
Since 1996, Dr. Bagga has completed over 10,000 cataract surgeries, including laser-assisted cataract surgery, multifocal, and toric implants. She was one of the first two surgeons in the United States to implant the Tecnis Toric Lens! Dr. Bagga is actively involved in clinical research and has authored numerous publications, lectured nationally and internationally, and served as an investigator in numerous clinical trials.
Dr. Bagga is very well respected in her field and is a highly sought-after surgeon. “I am very excited to move to the San Jose area as I have a lot of family and friends there,” said Dr. Bagga. “This is where I want to be. My vision matches very well with the vision of Eye Medical Clinic. There is a lot of potential for growth and I can’t wait to jump in.”
Dr. Bagga may love surgery the most, but in her spare time, she enjoys painting, as it appeals to her artistic nature. She also enjoys hiking and spending time with family and friends.
The entire Eye Medical Clinic team warmly welcomes Dr. Bagga!
