Board Certified in Ophthalmology since 2003, Dr. Mack feels it is imperative to stay on the cutting-edge of ophthalmology and because he has a passion for cataract surgery, he strives to bring his patients the maximum benefit from his sight-enhancing procedure.

Dr. Mack was the first surgeon in central Ohio to utilize Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) which measures the eye during cataract surgery by utilizing wavefront aberrometry. This provides invaluable information about the procedure and dramatically improves the accuracy of implant selection and placement.
