Success in cataract surgery requires high-quality standards and attention to fine details. Dr. Peter W. DeBry brings these qualities to Las Vegas with his training in cataract surgery and lens implantation. Dr. DeBry completed medical school at the University of Utah in 1996. At that time he was honored with induction into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society, reserved for the top physicians in each graduating class. Next, he spent three years of residency focusing on medical and surgical eye care in Madison, Wisconsin, where he was chosen, chief resident.
After residency, he was one of only four doctors nationally selected to attend one of the country’s top fellowships in eye surgery techniques and spent the next year at the number one ranked eye institute in the nation, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida. After working with top doctors learning the most up-to-date surgical techniques, he moved to Kansas City, Missouri where he taught these techniques to new eye surgeons as Associate Clinic Professor at the University of Missouri. Finally, he relocated in 2003 to help provide excellence in cataract and refractive lens surgery for the residents of Las Vegas.
Dr. DeBry is the first surgeon in Las Vegas to do a number of cutting-edge surgical procedures and is renowned for having done more complex surgeries than almost any other surgeon in Nevada. Dr. DeBry is uniquely qualified to help care for many complex conditions including glaucoma, corneal, cataract, and refractive procedures.
In 2013, Dr. DeBry opened his own clinic, NV Eye Surgery, where he has been able to provide outstanding medical care to his patients with the latest equipment and technology. Even with a rapidly growing practice, Dr. DeBry still takes the time to provide medical services to the less fortunate through the Lions SightFirst Foundation. Partnered with this non-profit organization, he has been able to help countless patients regain vision by providing free surgical care to those in need.
