Locally, he is an Hour Magazine “Hall of Fame Top Doc”, and Ambassador Magazine “Top Doc”.
An accomplished scientific author and inventor, Dr. Page has pioneered surgical concepts in ophthalmic surgery. He holds several patents, and in 2019 he won the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Film Festival for his ideas in the category of “Instruments & Devices/Intraocular Lenses”. Also in 2019, for his pioneering work in safer eye surgery, he was awarded “Best Paper in Session” at the ASCRS national meeting.
