In My Own Words
Dr. Michael Jacob Schermer-recipient of the first UC Davis Eye Center Alumnus of the Year Award-is a native of Detroit, Michigan and attended both undergraduate and medical school at the University of Michigan. After completing a medical internship in Ann Arbor, he joined the United States Public Health Service as a General Medical Officer, working at the Sells Indian Hospital in Arizona where he was chief of staff. In 1973, he began his residency in ophthalmology at UC Davis and was certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1977. From 1976 to the present, Dr. Schermer has been in private practice in Sacramento providing a broad range of general ophthalmic care to our region. He was one of the first local practitioners to develop refractive surgery in Sacramento and he performed the first modern posterior chamber lens implantation in Sacramento. Dr. Schermer also brought outpatient cataract surgery to the region. He has devoted considerable volunteer time with Surgical Eye Expeditions (S.E.E.) International, providing surgical services in Mexico, the Philippines and Vietnam as well as the World Eye Foundation in China. In addition, he has devoted time each year to provide opportunities to the less fortunate and developmentally delayed here in Sacramento.
