Areas of Care:
John Maher entered medical school with a case of nearsightedness. Although he originally intended to study internal medicine, after being fitted for glasses—and later for contact lenses—he was filled with fascination for the human eye. He took a part time job in the ophthalmology clinic, introducing him to what he came to see as the most fascinating and beautiful part of the human body.
In 1981, Dr. Maher graduated from Loyola University, Chicago, Illinois where he completed his residency in ophthalmology. Upon achievement of his medical degree, Dr. Maher returned to California where he accomplished his fellowship training at the University of California, San Diego. He began his practice in ophthalmology in Torrance, California in 1986.
Today, Dr. Maher is a board-certified ophthalmologist with fellowship training in Cornea and External Diseases. He maintains memberships in Loyola University’s Foreign Ophthalmologic Care from the United States, the Los Angeles County Medical Association, the California Medical Association, the Los Angeles Society of Ophthalmology and the Orange County Society of Ophthalmology.
