A widely respected cornea specialist, his areas of expertise include: corneal and intraocular refractive surgical procedures including LASIK and premium laser-assisted cataract and IOL surgery, complicated cataract surgery, and the management of keratoconus and other corneal ectatic disorders. His primary research focuses on identification and management of corneal ectatic diseases including keratoconus and postoperative ectasia after LASIK, and the avoidance, diagnosis, and management of refractive surgical complications.
Dr. Randleman serves as Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Refractive Surgery, the premier peer-reviewed journal in this subspecialty, a position he has held since 2011. Prior to that Dr. Randleman was Associate Editor for the Journal of Refractive Surgery and Associate Editor for the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in the review article section from 2008-2011.
Dr. Randleman has been awarded the Claus Dohlman Fellow Award, the inaugural Binkhorst Young Ophthalmologist Award from the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the Kritzinger Memorial Award and the Inaugural ISRS Recognition Award, and the Secretariat Award, Achievement Award, and Senior Achievement Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He has authored more than 120 peer-reviewed publications in leading ophthalmology journals in addition to 30 book chapters on refractive surgery evaluation, corneal cross-linking, and management of complications with IOLs, and has authored three textbooks, Collagen Cross-Linking (2013), which he co-edited on Farhad Hafezi, MD, PhD, Refractive Surgery: An Interactive Case-Based Approach (2014), and Intraocular Lens Surgery: Selection, Complications, and Complex Cases.
Dr. Randleman’s primary research focus is on the measurement and management of corneal biomechanics. He has developed screening algorithms for refractive surgery patient screening and served as a principle investigator for multiple FDA clinical trials for corneal cross-linking, a novel treatment for keratoconus and other corneal ectatic disorders that can halt and partially reverse the ectatic process. Dr. Randleman is also researching clinical outcomes for the surgical management of astigmatism and the use of the femtosecond laser for cataract surgery.
