Dr. Bryan John Hammer , MD



“At Ophthalmology Ltd. we are all committed to our patients and it shows. We develop friendships with our patients and that makes us better physicians.” -Bryan J. Hammer, MD With four siblings in the medical field, caring for others has become a family tradition for Dr. Hammer. Specializing in oculoplastic surgery, small-incision cataract surgery, reconstruction of the lids and orbits and laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Hammer finds the results of surgery to be most gratifying. “When a patient has a good outcome from a surgery, it’s a wonderful feeling,” Hammer said. “There’s nothing better than having a happy patient.” With five children, Dr. Hammer strives to strike a balance between allowing as much time as necessary for patients and creating time for his family. Dr. Hammer received his BS from the University of South Dakota and his MD from the University of South Dakota School of Medicine. He completed his ophthalmology residency at Texas A&M University and his fellowship in oculoplastic surgery in Cincinnati, OH. In his free time, Dr. Hammer enjoys sports, golfing, hunting and time with his family.
