Success in cataract surgery requires high-quality standards and attention to fine details. Dr. Peter W.

Ryan K. Peterson, O.D.

Dr. Peterson, a Las Vegas native, graduated from Bonanza High School and attended UNLV achieving a degree in Biology. He furthered his professional goals by attending the Southern California College of Optometry (now Marshall B. Ketchum University) and received his doctorate in Optometry.
