Randolph Grad Returns To WNY

BUFFALO – The Ross Eye Institute, 1176 Main St., Buffalo, announces the addition of Matthew Pihlblad, MD to its team of ophthalmologists. Pihlblad will practice in his subspecialty of pediatric ophthalmology.

Born in Randolph, Pihlblad recently completed his fellowship at UCLA and has returned with his family to Western New York. He received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pa.

Pihlblad attended medical school at West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown, W.Va., performed his internship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and did his residency at the Ross Eye Institute. Recently, he completed his fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA.

His interest in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus (crossed eyes) developed under the mentorship of Dr. Reynolds during his residency in Buffalo.

“Dr. Reynolds exemplified the true enjoyment one can have while practicing in our subspecialty,” said Pihlblad. He was attracted to Ross because of the “collegiality among the faculty and the exceptional and uniquely close resident-faculty interaction, along with the state-of-the-art clinic and research facilities.”

Pihlblad will serve patients at the Ross clinics in Orchard Park, Buffalo and Amherst.
