In recognition of 35 years of active membership, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) named Dr. Gregory Snodgrass a Life Fellow. In announcing the honor, Academy CEO Dr. David Parke II identified Dr. Snodgrass as a, “member of an elite group of ophthalmologists who represent the gold standard in advancing high-quality, safe and effective eye care,” and called the recognition, “a testament to (Dr. Snodgrass’s) commitment to clinical excellence and dedication to our profession.”

Dr. Snodgrass leads North Florida Cataract Specialists and Vision Care in Gainesville and Lake City and is renowned as one of the area's premier ophthalmologists. After earning his medical degree from the West Virginia University School of Medicine and completing his internship and Ophthalmology Residency at Riverside Methodist Hospital and The Ohio State University, Dr. Snodgrass began practicing in Gainesville in 1987. His advanced skills, mastery of state-of-the-art technology and more than three decades of experience place him among the upper-most echelon of eye physicians. 

The AAO Life Fellow acknowledgement is the latest in a long history of recognition from peers, leading industry organizations and patients alike. The International Association of HealthCare Professionals (IAHCP) added him to its prestigious membership. As a result, Dr. Snodgrass was published in The Leading Physicians of the World, a journal that “selects and documents biographies of medicine’s brightest minds.”

Based on an evaluation of Dr. Snodgrass’s reputation, history, ratings, satisfaction, trust, cost and general excellence, among other criteria, he was also recognized as one of Gainesville’s three best eye doctors by ThreeBestRated.com. In announcing the honor, the organization quoted one reviewer as saying, “Dr. Snodgrass did a great job removing my cataracts, inserting lenses and providing diligent after-care. As a scientist myself, I respect his knowledge and technical expertise. As a patient, I appreciate his friendliness and concern for my vision and well-being.”

At North Florida Cataract Specialists and Vision Care, Dr. Snodgrass and his team deliver complete eye care for the whole family, from comprehensive eye exams and prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses to diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. He is possibly best known for his expertise in laser-assisted cataract surgery. In fact, Dr. Snodgrass was the first local eye surgeon to use the state-of-the-art LenSx Laser Cataract System.
