Dr. Ney is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and has published several peer-reviewed research papers and book chapters. His ongoing clinical interests include the surgical management of glaucoma, glaucoma laser treatment and cataract surgery. Dr. Ney’s practice offers a full range of management for patients with glaucoma-related conditions, from drops to laser to surgical interventions.
Dr. Ney has a particular interest and expertise in minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, incorporating the latest surgical techniques for the treatment of glaucoma. The minimally invasive approach shortens recovery time with lower risk compared to traditional glaucoma surgery. These ever expanding approaches provide better glaucoma control and often times allow patients to reduce or eliminate eye drop therapy.
A native of Portland, Maine, Dr. Ney is now living on the South Shore area with his wife, their three young children and dog. He enjoys skiing, running, coaching youth sports and being outdoors.
