Dr. Scott Strelow, M.D.  (Vistar Eye Center)

Dr. Strelow specializes in Comprehensive Ophthalmology, Cataract Surgery, Corneal Transplants, External Diseases.

Dr. Strelow first recognized his passion for ophthalmology in medical school during an active duty rotation in Air Force medicine. He enjoyed the variety he found in the mix of medicine and surgery and liked the idea of being able to treat people of all ages. Vision is precious and working to preserve what is so important to all of us continues to challenge and excite him today. “I love what I do and love waking up every morning to come to work.”

His approach to patient care is focused on listening. “Every patient deserves my full attention. I never want to waste their time. Once I establish why the patient is there, and outline the options for treatment, I like to spend the bulk of the time listening carefully and making sure all of their questions have been answered.”

Dr. Strelow is married and has three grown sons and two granddaughters. He enjoys any activity that gets him outside with his family. He is particularly fond of hiking, golf, skiing, and scuba-diving.
