Curriculum Vitae

               Eye Fly MD is an educational effort in ophthalmology led by Matt Hirabayashi, the Chief Resident at the University of Missouri Columbia Ophthalmology Program. The aim is to produce high yield educational content in an engaging and accessible manner.
               It’s very early in my career and I believe that’s the best time to start a project like this so I can tackle concepts from all stages of learning and share ophthalmology as I understand it.
               I am also the incoming Refractive Surgery Fellow at Parkhust NuVision.

               My other major interests include flying, photography, and making music. More information on those topics is available by clicking the icons below to be redirected to the relevant websites:

What’s in a name?

I love airplanes and flying! I am Certificated Flight Instructor – Instrument so I have a passion for teaching in every capacity. The logo is meant to represent an eye (obviously), an airplane propeller, and a ship’s wheel because I also build sailboats in the limited free time I have.
