New eye surgeon joins Sequim clinic

Northwest Eye Surgeons Sequim clinic welcomes Dr. Jack Tian as their new eye surgeon. Tian will join the regional medical eye practice on April 4.

Tian specializes in cataract surgery, intraocular lens exchange, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery and eyelid surgeries. Previously, he practiced comprehensive ophthalmology in Astoria, Ore., and was an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Casey Eye Institute of Oregon Health and Sciences University, where he taught cataract surgery to resident trainees.

“To me being a real estate professional means advocating for my clients, dealing with all parties honestly and having integrity in all dealings,” she said. “I became a real estate agent because I lost my first home in the 2008 mortgage collapse.
