CEENTA is pleased to announce that Shobit Rastogi, MD, has joined our team on January 3, 2023, as our newest glaucoma specialist.
Dr. Rastogi specializes in glaucoma management and treatment with laser surgery, trabeculectomy, tube shunts, and MIGS. Beyond his glaucoma specialty, his clinical interests include dry eye, astigmatism, traditional and Femto laser-assisted cataract surgery, multifocal/TORIC intraocular lenses (IOL), and routine eye exams. He will see patients at our Statesville office and at our Mooresville location upon the completion of our new standalone office building in March.
Graduating from Wayne State University with a degree in biology, Dr. Rastogi received his medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine. After completing his internship at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn, MI, and his residency at Kresge Eye Institute at Wayne State University, he completed his fellowship in glaucoma at University Eye Specialists in Chicago, Il. Prior to joining CEENTA, Dr. Rastogi spent seventeen years in Brooklyn, NY and applied his glaucoma expertise as the Director of Glaucoma at SUNY Downstate and in private practice.
Outside of the office, Dr. Rastogi enjoys spending his free time hanging out with his family and friends. He likes to cook, be outdoors, workout, and spoil his dog.
“I am blessed with a skill that can help change so many lives. It’s exciting to join a practice that has been around for a century,” Dr. Rastogi said. “After being in New York for almost 20 years, I look forward to getting to know the Tar Heel State!”
“Our team is excited to start off the new year with Dr. Rastogi as our newest glaucoma specialist,” CEENTA CEO Jag Gill, ScD, said. “Patients in Iredell County seeking glaucoma care will enjoy his extensive expertise in this subspecialty.”
