Dr. Fransen is a retinal specialist and mission-driven, compassionate entrepreneur who has spent more than thirty years caring for patients with retinal diseases and building value-based solutions to improve their care at a population level. Dr. Fransen started Retinal Care, now Lumata Health, because he was tired of seeing too many patients make their way to him only after losing their vision due to conditions that are highly treatable if caught in time and managed properly.
Almost thirty years ago Dr. Fransen started a program to bring state of the art retinal care to American Indian communities throughout rural Oklahoma. He continues to see patients in those communities.
Dr. Fransen completed his ophthalmology residency at the Dean McGee Eye Institute, University of Oklahoma and his retina fellowship at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami.
