Charles J. Bock, M.D.

Dr. Bock

Board Certified, American Board of Ophthalmology

Charles J. Bock MD practices comprehensive ophthalmology with a pediatric specialty. From a young age, he knew he wanted to be a doctor. That certainty was partly due to the fact that he was born with two different colored eyes. From his earliest years, he sought an explanation for this anomaly. No one could point him to an answer. This piqued his interest in science and medicine. His curiosity and drive for understanding paid off when he learned in the course of his regular medical studies, that he had a rare genetic condition that caused different pigmentation in his eyes.

From that experience, Dr. Bock internalized a sense of heightened inquiry and attention to detail that has contributed greatly to his practice of medicine. One of the most notable success stories of Dr. Bock’s career exemplifies his belief that you should, “Never let go of the possibility in your mind that things are not what they seem.”

A young 9 year old patient came in to see him for bilateral cataracts which are very rare in a child. Aside from her eye condition, she had been ill for a number of years, and no one knew what was causing the illness. She had seen a multitude of doctors and specialists over the years without answer or relief. However, after his first visit with the patient, Dr. Bock’s experience and intuition told him to refer the patient to a genetic specialist.

Within the first appointment, the geneticist was fairly certain that the patient had an extremely rare genetic disorder that had been reported in only 35 people in the entire country. Soon thereafter, the patient began a special course of medicines that brought immediate relief. She was saved from a future of continual deterioration that would have developed into progressive retardation had she not been properly diagnosed and treated.

It is with immense satisfaction that Dr. Bock was able to give this young girl her sight back after removal of her bi-lateral cataracts. More importantly, he was deeply gratified to be a part of bringing relief to his patient’s overall suffering. He saw and treated the whole child. And because he looked beyond the obvious, he was able to refer her to the correct specialist. This spirit of caring for the whole patient imbues Dr. Bock’s and all the of the EHNW doctors’ practices.
