The new addition, Ashley E. Sturdy, M.D., is one of two doctors in the Denver area to treat uveitis, a form of inflammation in the eye.
DENVER, CO (July 7, 2015) Rocky Mountain Ophthalmology, one of Colorado’s most experienced surgical eye care centers for cataract and LASIK surgery, added Ashley E. Sturdy, M.D., to their team of specialty eye doctor experts. Dr. Sturdy received her medical degree from the University of Tennessee and Fellowship in Ocular Immunology and Uveitis at Johns Hopkins University-Wilmer Eye Institute.
“We are ecstatic to have Dr. Sturdy join our team,” Kevin Cuevas, Medical Director of Rocky Mountain Ophthalmology said. “She is very accomplished and will be a great asset since very few doctors have expertise in specialty eye complications such as uveitis.”
According the National Eye Institute, uveitis is a general term describing a group of inflammatory diseases that produces swelling and destroys eye tissues. These diseases can have varying effects on eyesight, from mild to severe reduced vision. Dr. Sturdy specializes in the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of all uveitic conditions, macular degeneration (dry AMD and wet AMD), diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema.
Among her lengthy list of professional accomplishments, Dr. Sturdy is also a published author and has given a multitude of professional lectures and presentations.
