Howard S. Lazarus, M.D.
Dr. Howard Lazarus is the resident retina specialist at John-Kenyon treating patients with diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachment and other retinal disorders. A recognized leader in his field, Dr. Lazarus was the first doctor in the region to use the PASCAL laser and 25-gauge vitrectomy, a cutting-edge treatment for retinal diseases.
Dr. Lazarus graduated from the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and served his residency at Bethesda Eye Institute at St. Louis University School of Medicine where he was Chief Resident. He also completed a two-year retinal fellowship at the Wilmer Eye Institute at John-Hopkins Hospital where he was the recipient of the prestigious Heed and Heed-Knapp fellowships.
A leader in retina research, Dr. Lazarus has served on the advisory boards of leading pharmaceutical companies that help define treatments for retinal diseases. His dedication to finding a cure for retinal diseases has led him to serve as the principal investigator on more than two-dozen clinical research studies throughout his career.
When he’s not with patients, you can find Dr. Lazarus playing jazz guitar, spending time behind the lens of his camera or spending time outdoors pursuing his new passion for hiking.
