Dr. Parks also accepted a two-year fellowship in Ocular Immunology and Uveitis at the National Eye Institute and completed a Retinal Ophthalmology fellowship at White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles.

In Guam, Dr. Parks provides medical and surgical treatment of vision loss due to diabetes-related eye disease, age related macular degeneration, retinal detachment, ocular inflammatory disease, and vascular glaucoma.  He has been providing full-time eye care through regular visits to the island, digital imaging, and collaborative relationships with local eye doctors.
