Franklin and Highlands residents will no longer need to travel far from home to receive advanced cataracts surgery thanks to the addition of ophthalmologist Dr. Clayton Blehm to the Family Eyecare Team of Franklin.
Dr. Blehm, who focuses his practice on laser cataract surgery, has performed thousands of cataract surgeries in the past 10 years. He specializes in the use of the leading laser cataract removal device with all standard and premium implant lens options.
“I look forward to offering cataract removal for patients in the area,” Blehm said. “They will be able to take advantage of new technology that provides less invasive and much more precise removal of cataracts.”
Dr. Blehm earned his medical degree from the University of Texas-Houston Medical School and served his ophthalmology residency there. He has assisted in numerous research projects, presented findings at national ophthalmology conferences and is published in several national medical journals.
