To say of Dr. Steven Corwin that the practice of medicine is in his blood wouldn’t be a stretch of the truth. After all, his father is an ophthalmologist, as well as a number of his uncles and cousins. Yet, although he knew from an early age that he wanted to follow the family tradition and become a doctor, Dr. Corwin was determined not to specialize in ophthalmology.
It wasn’t until his fourth year of medical school that he discovered his affection for the specialty.
“I found I enjoyed the immediate rewards of eye surgery. Not only could I see the results, it was wonderful to hear my patients report vision improvements almost immediately or within a few days of surgery.”
Today, through LASIK and cataract surgeries, Dr. Corwin has improved the vision of thousands of patients and helped them stay active in the sports and hobbies they love.
Born in New Jersey, Dr. Corwin was a virtual Doogie Howser, entering medical school at the young age of nineteen and going on to complete his specialty training at several of the country’s most prestigious teaching institutions. During the course of his training, he had many occasions to discuss cases and new techniques with his father, and once had the privilege of having his father provide assistance during a difficult eye surgery. Although his father is no longer in practice, Dr. Corwin keeps him abreast of breakthroughs in their field.
While attending medical school at Yale, Dr. Corwin had the opportunity to perform eye surgery in Nassau on behalf of the Bahamian government. It was there his passion was born for performing vision-saving surgery for those living in areas with limited or no access to specialty surgeons and modern medical technology. One of his long-term goals is to travel to underserved areas and bring modern eye surgery to those in need.
For Dr. Corwin, the most fascinating of breakthroughs in medical technology of the eye is LASIK surgery. “After watching LASIK be performed, I knew I had to acquire that skill,” he says. “Helping people to eliminate or drastically reduce their dependence on eyeglasses was something special I wanted to do.”
Not only has Dr. Corwin helped thousands of patients put away their eyeglasses and take up activities such as swimming, skiing and surfing that couldn’t have been done safely or well with eyewear, he too has benefited from LASIK. “Now I golf better than ever before,” he says with a smile. The enjoyment he derives from his own improved vision after LASIK only fuels his passion for the technology, and his desire to deliver it to as many people as he can.
In addition to understanding LASIK from a personal point of view, Dr. Corwin is also a dry eye sufferer. Having these two experiences as a patient himself has led to a most sincere bedside manner.
Unlike many LASIK clinics, at Marietta Eye Clinic Dr. Corwin works closely with all his patients, before and after their surgery.
A devoted clinician, he focuses nearly all of his professional time on improving his skill rather than medical research and development endeavors.
He has attended numerous LASIK seminars and conferences worldwide over the years to advance his training and knowledge in the field of refractive surgery.
When not seeing patients, Dr. Corwin enjoys his role as a father. With three children, it is without a doubt a role that keeps him rather busy."As a family, we love to play golf and snow ski together, attend sporting events, and we enjoy going to the movies," he says. Avid football and hockey fans, they attend games as often as they can.
When asked if either of his children have plans to follow in his footsteps and become a doctor, he grins when he acknowledges that one has already observed him at work in the operating room. “We’ll see,” he chuckles.
