Dr. Page completed an ophthalmology residency at the Casey Eye Institute / Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR in 2010. He then completed a fellowship in Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery, also at Casey Eye, in 2011.
Before his return to Oregon in 2019, Dr. Page spent the previous 8 years as Director of Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery as a faculty member in the Department of Ophthalmology at University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN. During his tenure at UMN, Dr. Page served in several leadership roles in clinical operations, organizational compliance, and ophthalmic education. In addition to his busy clinical and surgical practice, Dr. Page was an active educator of dozens of ophthalmology residents and fellows, serving as Fellowship Director in Cornea and making numerous contributions to a very well regarded training program in the areas of ophthalmic knowledge and state of the art surgical techniques.
Dr. Page is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), Cornea Society, and the Minnesota Academy of Ophthalmology. He serves on the AAO Knowledge Base Panel for Cornea and External Disease, and is an examiner for the American Board of Ophthalmology. He has published several peer-reviewed papers on microbial keratitis, the use of femtosecond laser for corneal surgery, and ophthalmic genetics. In addition, he has published several book chapters on topics in corneal disease and spoken at many local, regional, and national meetings.
Dr. Page’s clinical interests include medical and surgical diseases of the cornea, external eye, iris, and lens. His practice includes routine and complex cataract surgery, refractive surgery (LASIK and PRK), surgical management of dislocated or problematic intraocular lenses, cornea transplantation (PK, DALK, DSEK, DMEK), ocular surface oncology, and surgical ocular surface reconstruction.
Outside of ophthalmology, Dr. Page loves spending time with his wife, their two children, and their dog Ziggy. He enjoys yoga, cycling, running and backpacking with friends in the great outdoors. Travel, books, and food are among his favorite topics of conversation. Dr. Page and his family are thrilled to be returning to the West Coast and beautiful Oregon.
The woman at the front desk was cheerful, efficient, and very friendly. She put me in a better mood right away. The waiting room was a bit chaotic but totally understandable due to COVID-19 and social distancing. The doctor was great with his examination of my issue (a corneal abrasion) and he answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns and made sure I understood the at-home recovery instructions. Nobody likes going having to go through the doctor-visit process, but the friendly and caring people at Eye Care NW made it a pleasant and positive experience.
Very well organized and follow safety standards for COVID. Pleasant and professional staff. Dr. Paige is a wonderful and caring doctor. I received the care I needed with positive results. Thank you, Dr. Paige and staff!
First time seeing Dr. Page, he was great! Very thorough and personable. Took care of a minor issue on the spot.
