Matthew Hammond, MD

A refractive and cataract surgery specialist, Dr. Hammond attended Utah State University for his undergraduate degree and George Washington University for medical school. His internship, as well as his residency in ophthalmology, took place at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. Like Dr. Herion, Dr. Hammond also comes from a military background, serving nine years on active duty as an Ophthalmologist. He served during the Global War on Terror and feels like the greatest honor of his career will be the time he had taken care of America’s finest. He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal and the Humanitarian award for his relief work after Hurricane Katrina and served as Chief of Ophthalmology and Director of Warfighter Refractive Surgery at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

If there’s one thing that Dr. Hammond strives to demonstrate to the patients who come to Carrot Eye Center for their eye care, it’s that he and his team go the extra mile to ensure that patients get the results they want, rather than just what’s expected.
