The video below was a recent television interview featuring Dr. Newsom and his Glaucoma patient Debra Schrils. This is something everyone should see…

South Tampa resident Debra Schrils suffered from a serious case of Glaucoma. The normal eye pressure is under 20 and Debra’s eye pressure was 55! There was a very high risk for loss of vision.

Her regular physician referred her to Dr Newsom on New Year’s Eve 2 years ago. Naturally concerned about her elevated pressure, Dr Newsom worked to first reduce the pressure using medications. Comfortable with the results, she went home for the evening and was asked to return on New Year’s Day, January 1st, to re-check the pressure. Debra’s eye pressure was stabilized using the medications.

Two weeks later, Dr Newsom was able to implement a laser corrective surgical procedure that reduced the pressure and permitted Debra’s life to return to normal, no longer in need of those many medications to control her eye pressure.

Dr. Newsom with His Special Guests…

Above, Daytime Television host, Cyndi Edwards, chats with Dr. Hunter Newsom and his special guests at the WFLA television set for Daytime. Joining Dr. Newsom was his daughter, Madison, and his father, Dr. William Newsom. Dr. Newsom performed cataract surgery on his father as Madison watched carefully through the teaching microscope. Somehow, we think Ophthalmology may run very deeply in this family.
