Scope of Practice

One of the many perks of joining IVC is being able to practice Ophthalmology to the full extent of my ability. I love this because I believe each patient should have an Ophthalmologist that can be truly comprehensive and take care of each part of their eyes. I enjoy treating a vast array of diseases such as corneal disorders, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, optic neuritis, thyroid eye disease, uveitis, and more. I also perform cosmetic procedures such as refractive lens exchange, laser vision correction, eyelid procedures, and Botox injections.

Thyroid Eye Disease

Dr. Shah is one of Fresno’s only Tepezza eye specialists. If you have any type of thyroid disease and are having symptoms such as bulging eyes, red eyes, dry eyes, or blurry vision, schedule an appointment with Dr. Shah to see if you may benefit from this medication.
