Dr. Sbarbaro is a fellowship trained cornea, cataract, and refractive surgery specialist. He treats a wide variety of common eye conditions such as cataract, glaucoma, pterygium, dry eyes, diabetes, and macular degeneration, but also subspecializes in severe conditions associated with the front portion of the eye including keratoconus, Fuchs’ Dystrophy, corneal scarring, recurrent pterygium, and keratitis sicca. Dr. Sbarbaro performs most common ophthalmic procedures such as cataract surgery, pterygium removal with tissue grafting, and eyelid procedures, but also has specialized training and experience in LASIK surgery, refractive cataract surgery, and corneal transplantation.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois where his father was completing his cardiology training, but he grew up in Pueblo, Colorado. His parents still live there today. In his youth, he grew up snow skiing with his family and loves to ski his with his 4 year old son Jim and 6 year old daughter Ella. However, his 2 year old son, Ted, refuses to even put on snow pants. He loves the typical Colorado outdoors stuff, such as biking and hiking. He also likes computers, electronics, and baking bread. He’s been married to his wife, Elissa, for almost 7 years. He is excited to join Eye Associates!
