PRESS RELEASE:

Glaucoma Specialist Joins Newburgh, NY Ophthalmology Practice

| From

NEWBURGH, NY - July 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Thien (Tim) Huynh, M.D. has joined Highland Ophthalmology Associates in Newburgh, NY where he will practice glaucoma as well as general ophthalmology.

Dr. Huynh is a Fellowship Trained Glaucoma Specialist who brings this unique expertise to our community. He earned his medical degree from NYU School of Medicine. He performed his medical internship at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, in New York, NY before completing a four year residency in ophthalmology at the Drexel University College of Medicine, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He then continued on to receive his fellowship training in glaucoma at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

Glaucoma is a disorder associated with pressure in the eye, and is characterized by damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma affects 2 million Americans, and half of those people are unaware they have the disease. Glaucoma is much more complex than most patients would like to believe. This very fact is the reason that glaucoma sub-specialist ophthalmologists have an additional one to two years of fellowship training beyond the four years of general ophthalmology residency training.

Dr. Huynh is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the New York State Ophthalmological Society (NYSOS).
