Little Rock Eye Clinic is adding Dr. Christian Hester to its team of eye care physicians in July. Dr. Hester is a highly experienced ophthalmologist who will be servicing patients specifically in cornea and exterior disease surgeries.
A valedictorian graduate of Magnolia High School, Dr. Hester grew up in southwest Arkansas and attended Hendrix College in Conway, Ark., for his undergraduate degree. He received his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock and completed his residency at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, Calif., where he served as chief resident.
Dr. Hester recently completed his fellowship at the Cullen Eye Institute at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, in cornea, refractive and anterior segment surgery. Dr. Hester said he is excited to return to Arkansas and help Little Rock Eye Clinic expand its surgical practice. Dr. Hester is scheduled to begin seeing patients July 10.
“My wife, Tammy, and I are very excited to be back in Arkansas after spending half a decade away for my ophthalmic training,” Dr. Hester said. “I plan to work hard in order to bring medical and surgical treatments previously unavailable in Arkansas to the state. It is a true privilege to have the opportunity to join Dr. Michael Roberson and the other physicians at Little Rock Eye Clinic in providing the highest level of ophthalmic care.”
