“The most rewarding part of my day is knowing that I helped improved patients’ lives, helping them see better after cataract surgery or even just letting them know that their eyes look fine.”
Dr. Matteucci practices comprehensive ophthalmology and focuses on cataract surgery, eyelid surgery, and laser surgery. He treats most medical diseases of the eye such as diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and macular degeneration. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1992 with a B.A. in Biology and received his medical degree from Tulane University Medical School in 1997. He completed his internship at the University of Utah in 1998 and his ophthalmology residency at the prestigious University of California, Los Angeles, Jules Stein Eye Institute in 2001.
Dr. Matteucci moved to Bellingham in 2001 because of his desire to live in a smaller community-focused town. He joined Northwest Eye Clinic to be part of a team that values excellence and high standards in ophthalmology. In addition to his practice at the clinic, Dr. Matteucci has participated in volunteer cataract surgery missions in El Salvador for Peace Health Hospital and Surgical Eye Expeditions. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Washington Association of Eye Physicians and Surgeons, and is Board Certified with the American Board of Ophthalmology.
“We depend so much on our eyes throughout the day for working, driving, reading and doing things we enjoy. I feel fortunate to be an Ophthalmologist in this time where we have so much to offer patients to get them seeing as well as they can.”
