Over 35 years ago, Dr. Steven C. Kurtin opened The Kurtin Eye Center in Plano, Texas. When this facility was acquired by his associates, he volunteered at medical outreach centers helping underserved people needing eye care.
In 2015, he opened Kurtin Vision Specialists at Methodist Doctor's building off the Dallas Tollway in Addison, Texas. This practice is mostly devoted to people with severe vision problems typically from compromised corneal issues. The building has other top doctors in their respective fields including internal medicine, dermatology and pediatrics.
Dr. Kurtin graduated from Michigan's Ferris State University with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology and 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. This Doctor is specially trained to restore vision due to corneal disease, RK or Lasik issues, irregular astigmatism, near focus problems and myopia progression. Dr. Kurtin works with educators to treat visual processing and eye tracking issues in children 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 and in the early 2000's he was one of the first to be FDA certified to provide Orthokeratology. Today he continues researching various scleral & soft contact lens designs to provide critical feedback to labs for better vision and comfort. Marketing claims from optical labs are verified here through informal clinical trials. Dr. Kurtin's network of referring eye surgeons give insight into what technology truly works best for Lasik, PRK, Cataract and Corneal Surgery.
The Consumer's Research Council in Washington D.C. counts Dr. Steven C. Kurtin as one of America's Top Optometrists. He is listed in the National Registry of Who's Who in American Health Care. He is a long standing accredited Better Business Bureau A+ rated member.
