Dr. Jeffrey D. Salman is a recent graduate of the U.C. Berkeley School of Optometry glaucoma certification course. He is now able to diagnose and treat patients with glaucoma using state of the art equipment (Optical Coherence Tomography or "OCT" for short). With this technology we are now able to diagnose many ocular conditions early on, including but not limited to: glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
He is an active member of the Corte Madera Lions Club (and 2016 Lion of the Year award winner). Hoping to help students see their best, he spearheaded the SPOT vision testing program for the Larkspur-Corte Madera School District. Alongside volunteers and school nurses, over 1,500 children have been screened in 2016-2017 with plans of expanding into additional schools in future school years.
Dr. Jeffrey D. Salman grew up in Boulder, Colorado and attended Colorado State University for his undergraduate and UC Berkeley School of Optometry for his graduate training.

During that time, Dr. Salman became the Director of Contact Lens Clinics as well as an adjunct clinical professor in charge of the student training program at the UC Berkeley School of Optometry, the Southern California School of Optometry, and the Pacific University School of Optometry.
After completing 6 years of active duty, Dr. Salman joined the Air Force Reserves where he just finished his 20th year. He is currently a LtCol in the reserves and is the Chief of Optometry Services for the 349th Aerospace Medicine Squadron.
