Meet Dr. Peter Bracha, Retina Specialist

We are pleased to introduce you to Peter Bracha, M.D. who joined Wolfe Eye Clinic earlier this year and is now seeing patients in our Ames, Fort Dodge, Ottumwa, Pleasant Hill and West Des Moines offices. Dr. Bracha is a board-certified, fellowship trained retina specialist who specializes in medical and surgical management of retinal diseases.

Dr. Bracha is originally from Ames, Iowa. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri followed by a Doctorate of Medicine from the School of Medicine at the University of Creighton in Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Bracha went on to complete an internship at the University of Creighton followed by an ophthalmology residency at Indiana University, where he was Chief Resident. Dr. Bracha advanced his skills even further after his residency by completing a Vitreoretinal Surgery fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Bracha has given many scientific presentations and educational lectures to his peers and has published numerous articles about retinal disease. Dr. Bracha specifically chose surgical retina because it allows him to help patients with some of the most serious ocular conditions and allows him to help preserve their sight. 

Dr. Bracha enjoys working with patients each day and being able to meet new people from various parts of the state and discussing ways to help them achieve their best vision. Outside of the clinic, Dr. Bracha spends most of his time outdoors with his wife and two children. 

Wolfe Eye Clinic is extremely grateful to have the opportunity to add Dr. Bracha to our growing clinic operations in Iowa. With his addition and expertise, we can continually provide retina disease care in our locations throughout Iowa.
