Success in refractive surgery requires high quality standards and attention to fine details. Dr. Peter W. DeBry brings these qualities to NV Eye Surgery with his training in LASIK and Visian ICL lens implantation. Dr. DeBry completed medical school at the University of Utah in 1996. At that time he was honored with induction into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society, reserved for the top physicians in each graduating class. Next he spent three years of residency focused on medical and surgical eye care in Madison, Wisconsin, where he was chosen to help coordinate resident training as the chief resident. After this he was one of only four doctors nationally selected to attend one of the country’s top fellowships in eye surgery techniques and spent the next year at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida. After working with the nation’s top doctors, learning the most up-to-date surgical techniques, he moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where he taught these techniques to new eye surgeons as Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Missouri. Finally, he relocated to Las Vegas in 2003 to help provide eye surgery to patients in Nevada.
Since moving to Las Vegas almost 20 years ago Dr. DeBry has established himself as one of the leading eye surgeons in the state of Nevada. By caring for patients with complex glaucoma and cornea conditions, and performing over 15,000 surgeries, he has the experience to provide a high level of technical precision for each patient. He has more experience than any other local surgeon with the broad range of procedures he performs from a cornea transplant in a 90 year-old to a detailed glaucoma surgery in a 3 week old baby.
Dr. DeBry was invited to be among the first few groups across the country trained in the surgical techniques for Visian ICL Lens implantation, and has the most experience with this exciting technology than any other surgeon in Nevada. Our office has the only accredited office-based surgery suite for ICL procedures in Nevada. He is uniquely qualified to be the LASIK and ICL leader in Southern Nevada.
Dr. Andy Mu, O.D. works as a valuable part of our refractive team as the director of refractive services. Dr. Mu is well regarded in the eye care community for his problem-solving skills, exemplary clinical training, and approachable bedside manner that has helped many patients achieve better vision and improved quality of life. With kindness and compassion, he dedicates time to listen and learn the background story of each patient to better tailor a treatment plan to meet their visual needs.
Dr. Mu earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley. He then studied and worked in Germany on a U.S. Department of State sponsored fellowship to facilitate cross-cultural relations. Dr. Mu later returned to Berkeley for his Doctor of Optometry degree, graduating Beta Sigma Kappa honors. His internship included training in ocular sub-specialties such as cornea/refractive surgery, dry eye, glaucoma, ocular oncology, and retinal disease at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami. Dr. Mu subsequently completed an advanced ocular disease residency at the Baltimore VA Hospital and Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins where he managed patients with complex eye diseases. Dr. Mu is board certified in the treatment and management of ocular disease.
Dr. Mu is an active member of the American Optometric Association, the Nevada Optometric Association, and the Southern Nevada Optometric Society. He has also given presentations at the American Academy of Optometry and continuing education meetings.
In his spare time, Dr. Mu enjoys providing needed eye care to underserved populations via humanitarian missions locally and internationally. He also enjoys spending time outdoors – hiking, swimming, tennis, cycling, and snowboarding. He is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese and enjoys practicing his German and Spanish language skills when traveling abroad.
Dr. Mu works closely with Dr. DeBry in the pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care for LASIK, PRK, and ICL, and RLE patients.
