My MOOD Board

Jeffry Gerson, OD, FAAO

Dr. Jeffry Gerson graduated from Indiana University school of optometry in 1997. He then went on to complete a residency at the VA medical center in Kansas City concentrating on ocular disease and low vision. Immediately after leaving the VA, he became faculty at the University of Kansas school of medicine in the department of ophthalmology. Dr. Gerson was responsible for staffing clinics as well as some resident education and development of a low vision clinic.

Before entering private practice, he was in several different settings, including 2 ½ years in a retinal referral center where he had access to numerous diagnostic technologies as well as participation in numerous clinical trials.

Dr. Gerson has authored several articles in journals such as “Review of Optometry” and “Optometric Management”, and continues to do so. He also lectures frequently on the topics of retinal disease and systemic disease both here in the US and abroad. He is on numerous advisory boards which often times allows him early access to technology. He is a member of the American Optometric Association as well as the Kansas optometric association which named him their 2008 Young OD of the Year. He is a fellow of both the Academy of Optometry and Optometric Retina Society.

My Interests Outside of Optometry:

Watching my boys play sports, particularly soccer, traveling and exploring new places with family, and training for triathlons.
