William J. Faulkner, M.D.

William J. Faulkner, M.D. has been a corneal specialist with the Cincinnati Eye Institute since 1980. He is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Medicine and served his internship at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (Stanford). He received his ophthalmology training at the University of Oklahoma, followed by a corneal fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (Harvard). Dr. Faulkner is a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology.

At the Cincinnati Eye Institute, specialized equipment not commonly available is routinely used in the diagnosis and therapy of corneal disorders. Specular microscopy is used to photograph the corneal endothelium, pachymetry measures corneal thickness, and topograpy produces a color-coded map of the corneal shape. These instruments aid in ongoing research as well as in the clinical management of our patients. Various surgical techniques may restore vision in patients with corneal disorders. Corneal transplants have become routine procedures for several causes of blindness and may even be combined with cataract and implant surgery (triple procedure). Keratorefractive surgery involves new techniques of visual correction. Dr. Faulkner has performed radial keratotomy, epikeratophakia, automated lamellar keratoplasty and photorefractive keratotomy and now LASIK. The Cincinnati Eye Institute has a state of the art excimer laser in its Laser Vision Center which has revolutionized eye surgery and allowed many patients to have greatly improved vision without glasses. Dr. Faulkner is one of the first surgeons in the United States to insert the new implantable contact lens (I.C.L.). This soon to be approved procedure bypasses the cornea to correct even extreme amounts of myopia or hyperopia. Another procedure with which he has had experience is holmium laser thermokeratoplasty, an exciting option for hyperopia.

Dr. Faulkner is married with a teenage son and daughter. He has served on the board of Glendale Youth Sports and coached baseball and soccer. He leads Youth Group and is an Elder at the First Presbyterian Church of Glendale.
