Tamara Wyse, M.D.
Dr. Tamara Wyse has been consistently chosen as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor
Dr. Tamara Wyse is a board certified ophthalmologist with advanced fellowship degrees. She has performed more than 10,000 cataract surgeries and now does more than 1,000 cataract surgeries every year. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and a clinical instructor on the faculties of both Northwestern University Medical Center and the University of Chicago. She has been in practice on the Chicago North Shore since 1997, relocating to Northbrook in 2010. She attended medical school at the University of Illinois, where she was the valedictorian of her class. She completed her residency at Northwestern University Medical Center, and then went on to more advanced training with a fellowship year in anterior segment surgery in Louisiana. This was followed by another fellowship year at Northwestern University to become a subspecialist in Glaucoma.
Dr. Wyse was one of the first doctors on the Chicago North Shore to offer laser cataract surgery. She uses a variety of lens implant options including multifocal, accommodating, extended range, and toric (astigmatism correcting) lens implants to help patients achieve greater independence from glasses. She is skilled in the medical, laser, and surgical treatment of glaucoma including the newer minimally invasive glaucoma procedures.
In 2014 she undertook additional extensive training to incorporate dermal fillers and neuromodulators (such as Botox®) into the practice. Dr. Wyse emphasizes a very natural look to rejuvenate and enhance the face and neck. She preforms all of the cosmetic Injections herself, feeling that her training as a physician and surgeon can help provide the best results for patients. She spends time with her patients to understand their goals, and customizes each treatment based on patient preferences, age, gender and individual anatomy.
Dr. Wyse is committed to providing state-of-the-art care, and frequently attends meetings to be able to provide the best advances in care to her patients. Our practice is fully equipped with advanced technology to diagnose and monitor glaucoma and other eye diseases. Dr. Wyse feels it is equally important, however, to communicate with patients so that they can fully understand their eye issues, treatment options, and preventive care strategies. She takes the time to get to know her patients and understand their concerns.
She is a diplomat of the American Board of Ophthalmology, and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. She has been named to the prestigious list of Castle Connolly Top Doctors every year since 2013. This list is chosen by physicians and other health care professionals.
Dr. Wyse is a native of the Chicago North Shore. She and her husband, Joseph Wyse M.D., continue to live in the area with their son and daughter.
