Board Certified, American Board of Ophthalmology
“Every patient encounter to me is a wonderful opportunity to get to know each patient and to improve the quality of their life through optimizing their vision. I strive to understand each patient’s individual eye problems and fully address them along with putting in place a comprehensive plan for preventive eye health in the future. Getting to know each patient and what gives them joy in life allows me to work with each individual and create a personalized care plan that will work best for them and their life. It is an honor and pleasure every day to care for my patients as I would my own family members.”

Dr. Sanders is a great surgeon and physician. I felt he cared for me as real person; not just a number. He is extremely competent, caring and patient with a great infectious outlook.
My care was excellent. The staff got me in quickly and were sympathetic to how challenging the visual field test is. Dr. Sanders was exceptionally clear in his explanation of what is happening in my eyes. Really outstanding care.
Dr Sanders is the BEST and the entire staff are organized and friendly. Everyone took the time to explain each test and procedure when I had questions. Dr. Sanders has deep knowledge on the human eye and has been a huge help to me as someone who struggles with an unusual case of glaucoma. I recommend this clinic to everyone!
Good to meet Dr. Sanders for the first time (after Dr. Lindquist's retirement). He was thorough and clear in his communication.
