Ernesto Golez, III, MD
Specializing in Glaucoma
Dr. Golez has a fascination for the visual system of the eye and laser surgery. Preserving vision is the major goal for his glaucoma patients. He brings a special international perspective to our clinic with subspecialty training at Harvard and the prestigious Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Dr. Golez grew up in the Philippines as part of a medical family, and later married a physician, specializing in internal medicine. Together they enjoy music and chorale singing. His spare time is spent with family and exploring the northwest. In addition, he enjoys movies and cooking. In the Golez household he is recognized for his outstanding “Pansit”, traditional Filipino noodles.
” I trained to be a physician with the objective of helping others. When I was in medical school, my grandfather developed glaucoma. This kindled my fascination with the unique, intrinsic, inner workings of the eye. I became intrigued with the eye’s eloquent and complex features, and chose the subspecialty of glaucoma to build a foundation to be a resource for my grandfather as well as others.
I am honored to join the Specialty Eyecare Centre team with its superb national as well as international reputation as a leader in the fight against glaucoma.”
