Thomas C. Pidduck, M.D. is a board certified ophthalmologist who has studied and trained with some of the most prominent refractive surgeons on the East Coast of the United States.
He graduated from Georgetown University School of Medicine. Following a medical internship at George Washington University Medical Center, he was ranked in the top 2% of all applicants to the George Washington University Ophthalmology program. His clinical and leadership skills were soon recognized and he was appointed Chief Resident at both the West Virginia and District of Columbia campuses. During his residency he developed an interest in refractive surgery and became part of a group of pioneers who performed the first Photo Refractive Keratectomy (PRK) after the Excimer Laser was approved in 1995. In 1998, he was uniquely the first and only resident to perform (PRK).
After his residency, he completed a year of fellowship training in Cornea and Refractive Surgery. During this time, Dr. Pidduck gained great insight into Laser Vision Correction (LASIK) as a practitioner and as a LASIK patient himself. His extensive knowledge and varied experiences with Laser Vision Correction provide his patients with a real sense of reassurance.
Dr. Pidduck enjoys sharing his experiences through teaching and has taught medical students, interns, residents, optometrists and ophthalmologists in addition to counseling his own patients about the advantages of LASIK. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Dr. Pidduck is very active in the community and also enjoys the time he spends with his wife Alice and their two young children in and around their home in Point Pleasant Beach.
