Glaucoma Care

David J. Smits, M.D.

Dr. David Smits is a comprehensive ophthalmologist whose clinical focus is on cataract and glaucoma surgery. In addition to medical and laser treatment of glaucoma, he has an interest in minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), often performed in conjunction with cataract surgery. His continued research interests include teleophthalmology, specifically teleglaucoma, with goals to improve access, efficiency and quality of glaucoma care to a rapidly expanding population.

Dr. Smits grew up in Colorado and loves living in the west. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, skiing, and playing the piano. Dr. Smits and his wife and their baby boy are proud to now call Wyoming their home.
