Dr. Mark Walker's Bio and Credentials

Dr. Mark Walker’s unique blend of skill, experience, and refractive surgery training offers LasikPlus patients an unparalleled expertise in laser eye surgery. Dr. Walker is the only surgeon in the Pacific Northwest with the advanced academic accomplishment of a “Fellowship in Refractive Surgery” certification who is dedicated solely to LASIK surgery. This expertise is combined with over ten years of clinical directorship and the performance of more than 70,000 refractive surgery procedures.

Dr. Walker pursued his medical, ophthalmic, and specialized refractive surgery training when LASIK first revealed its fantastic promise. From that point on, this remarkable procedure has guided his professional career. In medical school at the University of Texas, he earned membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, and achieved acceptance to ophthalmology residency at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, where he focused on cornea studies.

Upon completion of his residency training, Dr. Walker made his next distinguished achievement when he was accepted for fellowship training in refractive surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center. There, he practiced and studied exclusively in refractive surgery for one year. During this time, he was the lead investigator in several laser eye surgery studies, all dealing with prevention of complication and maximizing visual outcomes through refractive surgery. His work has been published in The Journal of Refractive Surgery and Cornea.

As a Fellow in Refractive Surgery with thousands of cases of experience, Dr. Walker is one of the very few specialists in the United States to have advanced expertise and training in laser eye surgery technique, and specialization in the physiology of the cornea, which is the part of the eye treated in a LASIK procedure. His expertise and confidence in LASIK is attested to by his having had the procedure himself, and having performed LASIK on his wife.

Dr. Walker has chosen the Pacific Northwest as his home so he can be close to his extended family, and share the many unique outdoor opportunities with his wife and daughters.
