Dr. Akerman has experience in glaucoma research and has lectured at National Optometric conferences in the United States about advances in glaucoma care and technology. While in Arizona, he also functioned as a Contact Lens Lead Optometrist in a large multidisciplinary health care management practise, where he was responsible for performing complicated contact lens fittings including keractoconus and post-surgical contact lens management. He also has worked as a Low Vision Optometrist, providing specialty exams and services to the vision impaired.
