Bryan E. Lusk, M.D.

As a highly-coveted, fellowship-trained corneal specialist, Bryan Lusk, MD, could have practiced anywhere in the country. However, of all his many choices, he chose to come home and work with his father. Little did ‘Dr. Bryan’ know that not long after returning to Shreveport, he and his brother, Jeffrey Lusk, MD, would be given the unique opportunity to restore their father’s vision through cataract surgery.

Today, as one of the leading LASIK and cataract surgeons in the region, Dr. Bryan knows that coming home to practice with his father and brother has been a dream come true. It’s rare for fathers and sons to be given the opportunity to work together — but it’s even rarer that they’re given the gift of being able to restore the vision of friends, family members, and neighbors they grew up with.

You might think that because Dr. Bryan, Dr. Jeffrey, and Dr. James Lusk spend most of their days working side-by-side, they’d like to get away from each other in their spare time. But all three families frequently find themselves enjoying weekends and evenings together. It’s all about family with the Lusks!

Couldn't see the 'E'!

CATIE M.
1ST VISIAN TORIC ICL PATIENT IN NORTH LOUISIANA

Fun fact about me; I had to have a waiver to be in the military, much less to fly, because my vision was so awful. I was the person who couldn’t see the E at the top of the eye charts, just a white space where the letter should be. Started at a -9.00 in my 20’s, creeping up to -11 by my 30s. I did (more than one) Lasik/PRK consultation hoping one day I would get a different answer, but it was always the same: Between my high myopia and my astigmatism, it was never going to be an option for me. I wasn’t really looking forward to a lifetime of patting down the bedside table in order to find my glasses or of having to carry spare glasses and contacts in my purse because losing a contact while I was out and about would mean that I was stranded (kinda have to see the white lines on the road in order to drive, hah!) I had made peace with that when along comes the newest thing, Visian Toric ICL’s, implantable contact lenses for people with astigmatism. One day after my very quick surgery and I am already seeing 20/20. I am so thankful to Dr. Bryan Lusk and Lusk Eye Specialists. It’s such a blessing, you can’t even imagine.

Legally blind... from -17 to... 20/20 WITHOUT corrective lenses!

LAURIE H.
BLANCHARD, LOUISIANA

I’ve worn glasses or contacts for the past 51 years. My vision progressively worsened over the years until I was legally blind without corrective lenses. Dr. Bryan Lusk performed cataract surgery and I went from -17 to being able to see 20/20 WITHOUT corrective lenses! I am beyond ecstatic. I would urge anyone on the fence about where to have eye surgery done to choose Lusk Eye Specialists. I’m so glad I did.
