Milwaukee’s leading vision center
Suson Eye Specialists recently joined with the Froedtert/Medical College of Wisconsin Eye Institute.
Our vision center was founded in 1972 by Dr. Elieser Suson who left the full-time staff at the Medical College of Wisconsin to enter private practice. We quickly became one of the premier cataract and implant surgery practices in the Milwaukee area, leading the way in advanced techniques. When LASIK technology entered the picture, we were part of the vanguard bringing that life changing procedure to Milwaukee. In March of 2017, Dr. John Suson and Dr. Judy Suson-Hoggatt rejoined the full-time faculty of the Ophthalmology department of the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Known as much for our caring and professional approach, we have also continued to lead the way with innovative trends in surgical and medical eye care. Dr. John Suson and Dr. Judy Suson-Hoggatt continue the vision center’s tradition of excellence with compassion and professionalism.
Suson Eye Specialists has two vision centers in the Milwaukee area, conveniently located at the Froedtert/MCW Eye Institute in Wauwatosa and at the Riverwoods Outpatient Center in Glendale. Our services include general or medical eye exams, full-service optical (eyeglasses or contact lenses), cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, and lasik eye surgery.
