After completing his medical training in primary eye care in Boston at the New England College of Optometry, Dr. Leahy pursued a research degree in physiological optics from U. Cal Berkeley. Since then Dr. Leahy has consulted with major contact lens companies, and performed clinical research. He also invented and continues to develop a device for ophthalmic drug delivery. Dr Leahy practices at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, where he is nationally recognized for his skill and expertise in contact lens fitting and the management of complex corneal cases. He is an Instructor in Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.
While Dr. Leahy specializes in contact lenses, eyeglass prescriptions and routine eye exams are provided as well to detect conditions such as, glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes and macular degeneration.
Dr. Leahy believes in spending time with patients, listening to them and educating them about their eyes, so that together they can develop a plan to solve their visual problems. Should patients need access to specialty testing or diagnostic lens designs, Dr. Leahy can see them in Boston and then follow them here locally.
