About Dr Frank Burns

I earned my medical degree in 1986 at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, but I have lived in Louisville since that time. I completed an internship, residency, and two-year postdoctoral research fellowship in corneal disease at the University of Louisville in 1992 and I have been in private practice since then. I am certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. I am also a Fellow of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and I am a founding member of the Suburban Excimer Laser Center, PLLC.

I have treated many patients and their families since starting my practice, but the care I provide and the concern I have for my patients has never changed. I want you to keep and enjoy the best vision you can for the rest of your life.

I want to earn your trust. Please take a few moments and explore this website. After you do, I hope you’ll call on me and my staff for the quality eye care you deserve.


Dr. Strickland is a native of Houston, Texas, and he completed his undergraduate studies at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.  He attended The University of Louisville School of Medicine and entered the United States Naval Service immediately following graduation.  He completed his internship and residency in Ophthalmology at Naval Medical Center San Diego in California. Following training, he served as a staff physician and department head of Ophthalmology and Refractive Surgery at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.  While there, he had the pleasure of serving our men and women in uniform as well as dependents and military retirees. He separated with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

When he is not seeing patients he spends time with his wife and three energetic daughters who always keep him busy.

“Dr. Burns has been my ophthalmologist since 1991, and I’ve had no reason to try one of his competitors over that time. My eye health and vision have been quite good, other than nearsightedness, despite having oddly-formed optic nerves. Dr. Burns has respected my request, that he under-prescribe for corrective lenses, to encourage my eyes to exercise in focusing on distant objects. Over time, my nearsightedness has gradually improved. Dr. Burns makes periodic assessments of my optic nerves.”

Technology Matters

Dr. Burns is committed to keeping his practice ahead of the curve when it comes to eye care technology. The office of Dr. Burns has the most recent technologies to diagnose diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration because early diagnosis can improve your outcome, and Dr. Burns wants to help preserve your vision for a lifetime. Dr. Burns can also help you understand the different kinds of refractive eye surgeries, including LASIK, and he can help you decide what type of surgery, if any, may be right for you.

What kind of training do technicians have?

Most Certified Ophthalmic Assistants (COAs) and Certified Ophthalmic Technicians (COTs) are trained on the job with an ophthalmologist. You must work with an ophthalmologist a required number of hours and then pass a written exam with an accredited company to become certified. We’re proud to say that all of our technicians are certified.
