He has also received the prestigious VISX Star Award for his contribution to laser vision correction.

Dr. Varley completed his undergraduate studies graduating Summa Cum Laude at Alma College in Alma, Michigan. After receiving his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School, he completed his Internship and Residency in Ophthalmology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio. He served as the Chief Resident for the Cleveland Clinic Foundation’s Department of Ophthalmology. Dr. Varley then spent an additional year of training as a Heed Ophthalmic Fellow specializing in Cornea and External disease at the Iowa Lions Cornea Center at the University of Iowa. He also spent additional time at Louisiana State University studying refractive and excimer laser surgery with the pioneers in this field.

Dr. Varley joined the Cincinnati Eye Institute in 1994 as a Cornea and Refractive surgical specialist.

His expertise in Laser Vision Correction has allowed him to develop many of the surgical instruments used in his LASIK procedure. He has trained many ophthalmic surgeons to perform the LASIK procedure and continues to lecture frequently on this topic. Visx Inc. recently recognized Dr. Varley as a Visx Star Surgeon for his commitment to this field.

Dr. Varley is a member of the Cincinnati Academy of Medicine, Cincinnati Society of Ophthalmology, the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
