Dr. Anthony Grillo is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in cornea, external disease, and refractive surgery. He is an Oregon native who grew up in Southern Oregon and was always interested in medicine and healing.
He joins our clinic twice per month from Pacific ClearVision Institute in Eugene, Oregon, primarily to perform our cataract surgeries and treat complicated corneal disease.
He was initially drawn to medicine out of an interest in infectious diseases that he saw and experienced while living in rural Thailand after high school. Then as a medical student at UCLA, Dr. Grillo became fascinated with microsurgery and the amazing results that eye surgery could provide. During his residency at the Casey Eye Institute, he developed a passion for the intricacies of surgery in the anterior segment of the eye. He took that interest and passion to the Mason Eye Institute where he honed his skills in cataract surgery, corneal transplants, and ocular reconstruction during his cornea fellowship. Dr. Grillo lives in Eugene with his wife.
