“These medical mission trips get to the core of why I went into medicine—to serve the needs of the neediest and restore their vision.”
Dr. Saulson enjoys using his medical expertise on his international medical mission trips. Since 1995, Dr. Saulson has gone seven times with NW Medical Teams to Oaxaca, Mexico.
“We are able to restore their livelihood.”
Dr. Saulson attended the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio where he was class president and a member of the National Medical Honor Society. He completed his Residency in Ophthalmology at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami, and then took a Fellowship at the University of Michigan, specializing in corneal diseases.
Dr. Saulson joined the staff of EyeHealth Northwest in 1992. His emphasis is on cataract surgery and Laser Vision Correction surgery. Dr. Saulson makes regular volunteer trips to Oaxaca, Mexico and Peru. He shares his talents and donates his time performing cataract surgery on the poor indigenous people of these areas. He finds these mission trips deeply rewarding.
"I am only 54 years old I have cataracts in both eyes. I had surgery on October 28 with Dr. Roger Saulson. He was extremely gentle and kind and Answered all of my questions. He also called me the night of my surgery to see how I was doing which I thought was very nice just for a cataract surgery. I have severe anxiety and have a hard time getting them so they took me to the surgery center and gave me a conscious sedation and I don't remember a thing. He made me very at ease!! Any time I have called this office for any question I have been called back immediately. I would recommend him to anyone seeking cataract surgery! Thank you Dr.Saulson!"
"This is the greatest Eye Health facility I've ever visited. My doctor, Dr. Saulson, treats me with respect and takes all the time needed to answer my questions and complete the exam. He makes sure that my eye health is of the utmost importance. I've had to wait in the waiting room a bit longer at times but it is definitely worth the wait. It only means that the doctor's are spending quality time with their patients. I also want to add that the supporting staff is just as efficient with a kind manner."
I HAVE ALWAYS HAD GOOD RESULTS EVERY TIME I HAVE GONE TO BE SEEN BY MY EYE SPECIALISTS!!! I APPRECIATE THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF MY NEEDS!!!!
