WHO WE ARE
at Carrot Eye Center
At Carrot Eye Center, we’re unlike any other eye care provider, and that’s the way we like it.
We’re proud to be more efficient than anyone else in the business, because your time is every bit as important as ours. We’re committed to cutting wait times out of the industry.
We’re proud to use the absolute top-of-the-line in our diagnostic equipment and surgical technology, because you can’t afford to leave room for error when it comes to your eye health.
We’re proud to be completely focused on each patient’s individual needs, because you deserve more than a “one size fits all” solution. You need experienced doctors who get to know you on a personal level, and treat you based on factors unique to you.
At Carrot Eye Center, we do things a little differently, and the result is superior patient care from start to finish.
Our practice is led by two experienced ophthalmologists, sparing no expense to accomplish their goal of offering unmatched patient care.
Dr. Michael Herion, M.D.
Dr. Herion is a Lt. Col. in the United States Air Force Reserve, representative of the desire to serve that motivated his choice to go into the field of eye medicine. During his service time, he received an Air Force Commendation Medal for his service in The Global War on Terror.
Dr. Herion attended Arizona State University for undergraduate studies before getting his doctorate from Saint George’s University School of Medicine. His residency in ophthalmology took place at Saint Louis University before he completed a retina fellowship with The Retina Group Ltd.
Dr. Herion enjoys spending time outside, including skiing and scuba diving. On fall Saturdays, Dr. Herion can be found in the stands of Arizona State Sun Devils football games.
Dr. Matthew Hammond, M.D.
A refractive and cataract surgery specialist, Dr. Hammond attended Utah State University for his undergraduate degree and George Washington University for medical school. His internship as well as his residency in ophthalmology took place at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C.
Like Dr. Herion, Dr. Hammond also comes from a military background, serving nine years on active duty as an Ophthalmologist. He served during the Global War on Terror and feels like the greatest honor of his career will be the time he had taking care of America’s finest. He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal and the Humanitarian award for his relief work after Hurricane Katrina and served as Chief of Ophthalmology and Director of Warfighter Refractive Surgery at Landstauhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.
If there’s one thing that Dr. Hammond strives to demonstrate to the patients who come to Carrot Eye Center for their eye care, it’s that he and his team go the extra mile to ensure that patients get the results they want, rather than just what’s expected.
Dr. Herion and Dr. Hammond are naturally oriented towards service, stemming in part from their military careers, and their work at Carrot Eye Center highlights their strong accountability to providing an exceptional eye care experience for their patients.
When you choose us for any eye care purpose, whether it’s an eye exam and an updated prescription or surgery to remove a cataract, the team wants to get to know you on a personal level and welcome you into the Carrot Eye Center family.
