Meet Dr. Lusby
Dr. Franklin Lusby
Board Certified Ophthalmic Surgeon
Born and raised in Maryland, Dr. Lusby graduated Magna Cum Laude from Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, Maryland. He then attended the Loma Linda University School of Medicine in Loma Linda, California. He served his internship at Malden Hospital, which is affiliated with Boston University School of Medicine in Massachusetts.
Dr. Lusby began his ophthalmology training at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard Medical School in Boston before returning to the West Coast for his residency at White Memorial Center in Los Angeles. He then completed a two-year fellowship in anterior segment surgery with James McCaffery, MD, at Glendale Eye Medical Group.
Dr. Lusby served as Chief of Ophthalmology at Glendale Adventist Medical Center from 1992 to 1996. In 1995, he was certified by Chiron to perform ALK, a complex precursor to LASIK. This led to a LASIK fellowship with Stephen Slade, MD, in January 1996. The fellowship took place in Shanghai, China because many of the latest techniques in LASIK were not available in the United States at that time. Dr. Lusby feels very fortunate to have “gotten in on the ground floor” of laser vision correction.
Respected by his peers, he has written numerous articles which have appeared in respected medical publications. Dr. Lusby is frequently invited as a guest lecturer and often supervises new surgeons as they develop their refractive surgery techniques. Although all-laser custom LASIK comprises the bulk of his practice, he also performs other vision correction procedures such as PRK, and corneal collagen cross-linking.
Dr. Lusby enjoys woodworking, tinkering in his garage (he recently restored a 1971 VW bus) and spending time with his wife, their four grown children and an ever-growing number of grandchildren.
