Dr. Michael Henry specializes in the medical and surgical management of glaucoma as well as small-incision cataract surgery.
He received his medical degree from Loyola Stritch School of Medicine where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He completed his surgical residency in ophthalmology at Loyola University Medical Center and Edward Hines, Jr. Veterans Affairs Hospital. He then went on to complete a glaucoma fellowship at the University of Illinois in Chicago where he also served as a clinical instructor.
He has lived and worked in Peru and Guatemala and is a certified Spanish interpreter.
Dr. Henry is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and has published in medical journals, presented at national meetings, and served as a clinical investigator in glaucoma research. In addition to medical therapy, he offers a variety of minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries, laser surgery, as well as trabeculectomy and tube shunts for his glaucoma patients.
In cataract surgery, he tailors his intraocular lens selection to each patient. He implants monofocal, multifocal, extended depth of focus, and toric intraocular lenses. Dr. Henry has a special interest in complex cataract surgery, in particular pseudoexfoliation cases. He was the first surgeon in the United States to use the B-HEX pupil expander in complex cataract surgery.
Dr. Henry believes in treating his patients like he would treat his own family. He and his wife Megan have one son—Wesley—and a dog—Ari. His hobbies include golf, cycling, and theatre.
