Dr. Steven C. Kurtin started practice in Plano, Texas over 37 years ago. Plano Eye Care acquired these practices in 2013. Dr. Kurtin then volunteered at medical outreach centers caring for underserved people.
In 2016, Dr. Kurtin founded Kurtin Vision Specialists at Methodist Doctor's building off the Dallas Tollway in Addison, Texas. This specialty eye care practice is devoted to people with severe vision, cornea and dry eye problems. Other top doctors here include family medicine, dermatology and pain management.
Dr. Kurtin graduated from Michigan's Ferris State University with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Human Biology with work in Psychology. Four years later, he attained the Doctorate of Optometry degree (O.D.) at the prestigious University of Houston Optometry school in Houston, Texas. He is specially trained to restore vision from corneal compromise, Keratoconus, RK or Lasik issues, astigmatism and myopia progression in children. Dr. Kurtin works with educators to treat visual processing and eye tracking issues to facilitate learning.
In the late 1980's, Dr. Kurtin was a clinical investigator for Bausch & Lomb's BiTech soft lens - one of the world's first soft bifocal contact lens. In the 1990's, Dr. Kurtin trademarked his MultiFokus progressive gas permeable contact lens. In the early 2000's, he was one of the first to be FDA certified to provide Orthokeratology and Paragon CRT. His research includes eyeglass lens designs such as NeuroSight.. Marketing claims from various optical companies are verified here through informal clinical trials. Dr. Kurtin is part of a network of affiliated eye surgeons (Ophthalmologists) to care for people with retina, cornea or cataract problems.
The Consumer's Research Council in Washington D.C. counts Dr. Steven C. Kurtin as one of America's Top Optometrists. He is a long standing A+ rated accredited member of the Better Business Bureau of North Texas.
