Dr. John Lehr, MD is an ophthalmology specialist in Apopka, FL and has been practicing for more than 30 years. Dr. Lehr graduated from University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Vassar College with Research Distinction. During his Residency at New York Eye & Ear Infirmary in New York City, Dr. Lehr would soon be united with distinguished professor and Medical Retina Specialist Dr. Joseph Walsh, the Residency Chairman. He followed him closely and learned that becoming a Retina Specialist would be his calling.
While working with Retina Specialists in the Miami area, most notably with Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Dr. Lehr began to hone in on his path toward research and treatment. After his fellowship training as Retina Specialist, Dr. Lehr decided to return home to family and after a flight to Orlando, he met with future partners at Magruder Eye Institute and jumped at the opportunity to join the practice.
Today, Dr. Lehr treats patients for a variety of eye conditions, most notably diseases involving the retina. He diagnoses and treats patients through medical management and laser surgery.
One of his recent ventures is VRS where he has a position as Principal Advisor.
Dr. Lehr is an avid golfer, plays tennis and often gets the urge to read up on new trends in technology.
