Dr. Lubahn is an ophthalmologist that specializes in refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK), advanced cataract surgery, cornea and external disease, corneal transplantation (full-thickness transplants and partial thickness procedures like DSAEK), manual small incision cataract surgery, secondary intraocular lens placement, ocular surface cancer treatment, and management of difficult corneal and scleral infections.

After college, he taught high school science and coached track with Teach For America in inner-city Houston. He stayed in Texas to attend medical school and ophthalmology residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He then made the move to Miami, Florida where he completed his cornea and refractive surgery fellowship at the #1-ranked Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
In his free time, he enjoys being with his wife and daughter, traveling Oregon (with frequent trips to the coast and Bend), hiking (Wahkeena Falls and Dog Mountain are favorites), running, surfing, biking, and canoeing (he canoed the entire Mississippi River on a solo trip in 2003).

Thank you to Dr. Lubahn who recently gave me 20/20 vision for the first time in my life! I have had severe astigmatism in my left eye and have worn glasses for as long as I can remember. Even with glasses, I could only read the Big E on the eye chart. I then began to develop cataracts and Dr. Lubahn performed a wonderful surgery that has entirely changed my life. He replaced the lens in the left eye with the new Toric lens . He is such a fine surgeon and I so highly recommend him to anyone with poor vision. The day after surgery when Dr. Lubahn removed the eye shield.... I walked outside into a beautiful new world that I had never seen before. I sat and cried on the bench out front for 15 minutes. I am so grateful and happy to have had this surgery during my lifetime. The new Toric lens is amazing! Do go and see Dr. Lubahn for you will be in the very best of care!- Yelp Review
I had a terrible pain and discomfort in my right eye while I was visiting Portland, Oregon, so my friend took me to see Dr. Lubahn. Dr. Lubahn was very professional, knowleageable and patient. He put me through a number of tests and exams and ultimately told me that I had a problem with the blood vessels in my retina. To make a long story short, after a few procedures in over a week, my eye feels fine again - no pain and no discomfort. What a relief. I must also mention that the technicians and assistants in the office were also personable and nice. I am very happy I went there. Next time I have a problem with my eyes,
I will surely know where to go.- Yelp Review
