Jay Stewart, MD

Ophthalmologist

Dr. Jay Stewart is an ophthalmologist who specializes in the treatment of the retina and vitreous, a thick, transparent substance that fills the center of the eye. His expertise includes treating conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, ocular trauma, retinal detachment, retinal vascular diseases and uveitis, which is the swelling and irritation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye that provides most of the blood supply to the retina.

Stewart earned a medical degree at Harvard Medical School and completed a residency in ophthalmology at UCSF. He completed a fellowship at the Doheny Eye Institute at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and won the Ronald G. Michels Fellowship Foundation Award in Vitreoretinal Surgery, which funds young scholars, in 2004. In his research, Stewart studies diabetic retinopathy, drug delivery to the eye and the permeability and biomechanics of eye tissues. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Retina Specialists and Retina Society. Stewart is a professor of ophthalmology.
