About your doctor:

Languages spoken:


Dr. Rosenthal focuses particularly on the management of complex anterior segment surgery - surgery on the front parts of the eye, such as the cornea and lens, usually using a laser. Dr. Rosenthal is frequently able to offer solutions to serious eye problems that cannot be treated elsewhere by conventional means.

Laser vision correction - LASIK and other procedures

Treatment of eye diseases - especially cataracts, glaucoma, and corneal diseases

Full optical services - glasses and contact lenses, both traditional and designer, with an emphasis on state-of-the-art lens technologies to allow the greatest comfort and depth of vision, at a reasonable price

Aesthetic services - eyelid surgery, brow lifts, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and several dermal fillers

A comprehensive ophthalmic testing facility to allow Dr. Rosenthal to make detailed and accurate diagnoses, thus providing him with the tools to treat eye diseases at an unmatched level of sophistication and precision

Firsts: Pioneering Work Making Eye Surgery Safer with Better Visual Outcomes

Dr. Rosenthal has been a leader in the development of minimally invasive cataract surgery. Preferring to avoid the use of needle injections behind the eyes for anesthesia, he developed and patented a non-invasive technique for placing very effective liquid anesthetics on the surface of the eye.

Dr. Rosenthal holds an academic appointment (Associate Professor of Ophthalmology) at the prestigious John A. Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah School of Medicine, one of the leading academic, research, and patient care institutes in the world. He has developed new and innovative eye surgery technologies, and he has invented new instruments and techniques for eye surgery.
