About Dr. Crosby

Victor A. Crosby M.D., Ophthalmologist

I have been board-certified in ophthalmology my entire career in Athens, Georgia. It was during my four years in the U.S. Air Force as a flight surgeon that I got to understand the flying environment and the needs of high-performance pilots with regard to their vision. I developed my interest in vision, eye disease and eye problems during this time. As squadron doctor, I also cared for their families, including premature infants which have special ophthalmic problems. I am the only eye doctor in Athens who treats these tiny children. Many eyes have been saved by these efforts.

Quote from Dr. Crosby:

"My father, Dr. William V. Crosby, was my motivation to practice medicine. He practiced OB-GYN in Athens for 35 years. And I experienced and learned from him the attributes and ethics of a quality physician and a great man."

“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease”. William Osher (physician 1849-1919)
