Meet Thomas C. Stuckey III, M.D.
Dr. Thomas Stuckey is originally from Baton Rouge and received a degree in Biological Engineering from LSU before attending LSU Medical School in New Orleans. He went on to complete his residency in ophthalmology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. He then returned home to help care for the community that served him so well growing up.
Now, as a member of Eye Specialists of Louisiana, Dr. Stuckey practices comprehensive ophthalmology, performing everything from routine eye exams to complex intraocular surgery. He is an experienced cataract surgeon and offers an array of advanced technologies like laser cataract removal, astigmatism correction, and multifocal lens implants. He also was the first physician in Baton Rouge to offer drop-less cataract surgery – a technique that eliminates the need for the patient to use multiple medicated eyedrops for weeks after surgery. He also offers vision correction with customized, blade-less LASIK.
In addition to his ophthalmology residency, Dr. Stuckey completed two years of general surgery training that he puts to work performing various oculoplastic procedures such as eyelid lifts, repair of lid malpositions, and removal of eyelid lesions. He is also experienced in periocular cosmetic procedures like blepharoplasty, Botox injections, and facial fillers.
