Dr. Nash sees patients at the Gundersen Eye Institute in La Crosse, where he specializes in the medical and surgical management of all eye diseases affecting children. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Strabismus
  • Amblyopia
  • Nasolacrimal duct obstructions
  • Chalazions
  • Refractive issues
  • Motility disorders due to genetic syndromes
  • Nystagmus
  • Retinopathy of prematurity
  • Pediatric neuro ophthalmology
  • Cataracts

In addition to children, Dr. Nash evaluates and treats adults who have strabismus, nystagmus and double vision related to strabismus. Because many eye muscle problems originate in childhood, adults with similar problems can benefit by seeing a specialist with expertise in this area. He also sees adults on an emergency basis who have general eye diseases.

"It is a wonderful privilege to be a pediatric ophthalmologist and I'm looking forward to serving this community," says the Rochester, Minn., native. "I believe in finding solutions that best fit each patient. Everybody is different and so are their eyes. I listen to the needs of the patient and family to come up with a treatment plan that puts the needs of the patient and family first."

Dr. Nash is pleased to provide second opinions, whether it's on the phone or in the clinic setting. "I aim to be a resource to the people of this community and the providers who serve it," he adds.
