GET TO KNOW YOUR SURGEON
  • Specialty training:
    Dr. Knowlton completed an internship at the University of Pittsburgh, Mercy Hospital followed by a Residency in Ophthalmology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
  • Why did you choose to specialize in ophthalmology?
    I was fascinated with the anatomy and function of the eye from an early point in medical school. I love having the opportunity to improve a patient’s quality of life in such a rapid and profound way. So much of our joy in life is tied to the ability to see well, and I enjoy helping people find this joy again.
