Ryan D.
Neurology, Neuro-Ophthalmology, Ophthalmology
Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Neurology

As a neuro-ophthalmologist, I specialize in visual issues arising from the brain and its connections with the eyes. I think it is imperative for a physician to be a good listener, as the key to the right diagnosis can often be discovered in the story that only the patient can provide.


Dr. Ryan D. Walsh is a board-certified neurologist who is fellowship-trained in neuro-ophthalmology. This subspecialty of both neurology and ophthalmology focuses on disorders of vision and eye movements related to the nervous system. Dr. Walsh earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. He then completed a transitional year internship and a neurology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Following his residency, Dr. Walsh pursued subspecialty training, completing a neuro-ophthalmology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Walsh joined the Departments of Ophthalmology and Neurology at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2012, and he strives to provide professional, compassionate, excellent care to each and every patient he serves.
