Principal Investigators

Dr. Brandon Baartman - Dr. Baartman’s love of research started early in his medical journey and grew into a true passion during his fellowship. He has played key roles such as Principal Investigator and Sub-Investigator on studies that have become the standard of care. Since opening his own practice in the Omaha area, he continues to prioritize research as a way to shape the high level of care he provides to patients. His participation in research has ensured that the greater Omaha community has access to the newest advanced technologies in eye care. Actively participating in research allows Dr. Baartman to individualize care to best fit his patient’s needs.
