Dr. Mark Hollingshead is board certified in ophthalmology and was one of the first surgeons in Idaho to perform the revolutionary LASIK procedure. He has performed thousands of LASIK procedures and continues to be one of the most experienced local providers of LASIK in southwest Idaho and eastern Oregon.
Dr. Hollingshead is the only ophthalmologist in the Boise Metro area certified in both LASIK and cataract surgery by the American Board of Eye Surgery (ABES). After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree (cum laude in biochemistry) from the California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo, Dr. Hollingshead completed his Doctor of Medicine degree and residency training in Ophthalmology at the University of California-Irvine College of Medicine. After further training in refractive surgery and advanced cataract techniques at The Eye Institute of Utah, he opened the Boise clinic and outpatient surgery center 20 years ago, bringing the finest and latest technological advances in eye care to the area.
Dr. Hollingshead lives his commitment to bringing the most advanced vision correction technology commercially available to the Boise community. He looks for solutions through extensive continuing medical education, both in the U.S. and abroad. Always an innovator, he was once the only doctor in Idaho performing the now-common techniques of topical anesthesia, foldable implants, and no-stitch surgery for the removal of cataracts as early as 1994.
