Mission Statement

Our Doctors: Joanne Francis, MD

  Ever since I was a child, I have been passionate about art and the use of color to express emotion. Beauty in life is captured by what we see. This reverence for sight underlies my love for ophthalmology. As a surgeon I have the unique opportunity to not only improve patients’ vision but also their lives.

My extensive training has equipped me to treat a wide range of corneal, cataract, and anterior segment diseases. I am experienced in the latest surgical techniques, and I was mentored by some of the most prominent corneal surgeons. I have special interests in complex cataract extraction, endothelial dystrophies, and single layer corneal transplants (DMEK).

I look forward to helping patients get back to all the things they love to do with renewed hope and confidence in their vision. I am very excited to be joining Dr. Koreishi and Dr. Ple-plakon at Cornea Consultants of Texas to serve the Dallas area!
