Dr. Aaron Weber
When it comes to the practice of medicine, Dr. Aaron Weber utilizes a lifetime of experiences to deliver exceptional surgical eye care. Distinguished by Newsweek as one of America’s Best Eye Doctors, he is highly respected by peers and sought out by patients. Dr. Weber’s humble story starts in northeast Ohio where, as a child, his scientific mind began to develop while working with his father. From carpentry to car mechanics, there wasn’t much they wouldn’t tackle. As time went on, Dr. Weber excelled in advanced mathematics and science courses at Stow-Munroe Falls High School and went on to study Biological Engineering at The Ohio State University.
Dr. Weber’s Affiliations
During his time at OSU, he was a member of the Engineering Honors Program and the preeminent engineering honor society—Tau Beta Pi. Along with the rigorous course load, Dr. Weber worked two jobs: one as an engineering teaching assistant under his professor, and the second as a coordinator of specialty services for disabled students. He also volunteered in the office of a renowned Columbus ophthalmologist which helped plant the first seeds of interest into the field. Dr. Weber would graduate Magna Cum Laude and was awarded the President’s Salute Award to recognize the top graduating seniors throughout
Following graduation, Dr. Weber pursued a career as a Research and Design Optics Engineer at a famed ophthalmic lens company in Cleveland. It was there that Dr. Weber was immersed in optical physics and developed a broader understanding of ophthalmology. His work entailed designing and manufacturing ophthalmic lenses that are used by nearly every eye doctor around the world. He would be granted a United States Patent for a novel surgical lens design.
Though he enjoyed the challenges of engineering, it lacked the personal interaction he enjoyed so much. He desired to be able to work in a capacity to utilize his skills but also have a direct impact on the lives of others. It was then he decided to follow a different calling and pursue a career in medicine with aspirations of becoming an eye surgeon. Dr. Weber went on to complete his medical training and Ophthalmology residency at The University of Cincinnati. He excelled in cataract surgery and felt he had found his true calling. Following his training, he worked for two years outside of Columbus before joining Columbus Laser & Cataract Center.
Dr. Weber lives in Powell with his wife, two daughters, and Goldendoodle dog. They can be found exploring Columbus, with favorite spots that include the Columbus Zoo, the Conservatory, and the many Metro Parks. Dr. Weber loves the outdoors and all the activities that go with it (especially fishing and kayaking) and has a passion for conservation. His other joys include gardening and cooking Italian food.
Outside of the office, Dr. Weber has been involved in medical outreach both at home and abroad. He and his wife are active in the local Prevent Blindness Organization which has a positive impact on the Greater Columbus Area. Dr. Weber also travels to Central America to deliver eye care and perform surgeries on patients that are blinded by cataracts.
Dr. Weber’s practice of medicine is ultimately supported by three principal pillars of beliefs: Scientific, Hippocratic, and Religious. It is with these guiding sets of principles that Dr. Weber delivers the highest quality of care for every patient.
