Overview

Dr. Samir Vira is a Board certified ophthalmologist with a fellowship training in corneal disease and LASIK-refractive surgery. His interests include cataract surgery, corneal transplantation, and refractive surgery. After splitting the early years of his life in Georgia and India, Dr. Vira attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where he graduated with honors with a degree in Computer Science. Staying close to his roots, he earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Vira then moved to the Chicago area to complete a competitive internship at Evanston Northwestern Hospital. Subsequently, he completed his residency in Ophthalmology at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. During his residency, he developed a keen interest with studies in corneal transplantation, presented his data at national meetings, and published articles in peer-reviewed journals. His hard work was recognized with the Chicago Ophthalmological Society's prestigious Beem Fisher Research Award. He also volunteered his time during residency to both medical and surgical care for underprivileged patients in Guatemala. After spending a year in private practice and as a teaching-attending physician at the Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital in Chicago, he returned to Georgia for fellowship training in cornea, external disease, and refractive surgery with Drs. J. Bradley Randleman and John Kim at the Emory Eye Center. During his fellowship, he also supervised resident clinics and surgeries at Grady Memorial Hospital in downtown Atlanta. Since fellowship, his primary focus is to provide personalized patient care in customized cataract surgery, corneal disease and surgery, and refractive surgery. In his free time, Dr. Vira enjoys traveling, running, watching sports, and spending time with his wife and family.
