    About Dr. R. Krishna Sanka

    Dr. R. Krishna Sanka graduated from the Duke University School of Medicine following an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He completed an Ophthalmology residency at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta and a fellowship in Cornea, External Disease and Refractive Surgery at the University of Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago. He is a native of Baltimore, MD, and holds medical licenses in Wisconsin, Illinois and Georgia.

    Dr. Sanka initially discovered a passion for medicine in an unconventional fashion at MIT when he conducted a software engineering research project in medical imaging at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In medical school, he was fascinated with the fast and tangible results of treatment of diseases of the eye, and decided to make ophthalmology his specialty.

    Dr. Sanka is happy to be able to provide the latest in comprehensive ophthalmic care to his patients, and has had the privilege to be the first surgeon in his region to provide various treatments. As an accomplished cataract surgeon, Dr. Sanka was the first in Wisconsin to implant the enhanced Envista intraocular lens implant from Bausch & Lomb. Dr. Sanka is also a refractive surgery specialist and was the first surgeon in Wisconsin and Illinois to perform SMILE, which has been referred to by many as “next-generation LASIK”. He is also thrilled to be the first and only ophthalmologist in the southeastern Wisconsin area to perform specialized corneal transplant surgeries such as Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK). Dr. Sanka is grateful to be part of a practice that has always been at the forefront of adopting new technologies to provide the best possible care for its patients.

    Outside of the office, Dr. Sanka loves spending time with his wife and 2 daughters, exploring the local food scene, traveling, and participating in almost any recreational sport. While he greatly admires the Green Bay Packers, he is and always will be a passionate fan of his hometown Baltimore Orioles and two time Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
