Appalachian Eyes Staff — Gregory S. Moore, O.D.

Gregory S. Moore, O.D. is a graduate of both West Virginia State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and the Southern College of Optometry with a Doctor of Optometry degree.

Dr. Moore has been involved in both sports vision and private practice since completing his training in 1987. As a result of the success athletes experienced after working with Dr. Moore, he was named the team eye doctor for the Chicago Cubs from 1989-1992.

In addition to serving as the team eye doctor for the Chicago Cubs from 1989-1992, Dr Moore has been actively involved as the team eye doctor for the Charleston WV minor league baseball teams that have changed names and sponsorship over the years up to the current West Virginia Power. He also serves as the eye doctor for the University of Charleston Athletic Department.

In 1997, Dr. Moore developed Eyegearâ„¢ that allows the casual athlete to benefit from his techniques that previously were only available to professionals. He currently holds three US and International patents with additional patents pending.

In addition to the Appalachian Eyes, Dr. Moore currently serves as the Sports Vision Consultant for the Sports Medicine Division of the Charleston Area Medical Center, as well as the Chief Technology Officer of MSS Performance, which makes sports training devices available to the public through direct response and retail market venues.

Dr. Moore has focused his practice modalities in two distinct areas, Sports Medicine and Laser Vision Correction. He sums up his practice experience as follows, "In sports vision, I have been privileged to work with some of the highest paid athletes in the world. It is very rewarding to spend my day with patients that are so excited about decreasing their dependency on glasses or contacts."

In November of 2004 the Appalachian Eyes was asked by Moria Inc. of France to participate in its US FDA approval study for the Moria Epi-K microkeretome. This unique instrument allows patients who were previously not candidates for LASIK to be able to enjoy the benefits of refractive surgery. This instrument makes a very thin epithelial flap (about 50 microns) as opposed to a deeper stromal flap (about 150 microns) as is done in conventional LASIK. (As a point of reference a human hair is about 125 microns.)

As a result of that work, the FDA approved Epi-K in March of 2005. Currently the Appalachian Eyes has performed as many of these procedures as anyone in the world. Eye doctors have traveled from across the US, Mexico, France, and Canada to the Appalachian Eyes to be trained in both the surgical technique and the peri-operative treatment of patients requiring Epi-K.
