Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.
To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
As of 9/10/2019, Dr. Immler has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.

Great experience. Dr Imler was attentive and listened to all of our questions and concerns He took the time to help us understand what changes were happening with our eyes. I appreciated his taking time between lenses to actually let me have a chance to see which one is more clear. This was the first eye appointment I have ever had that I did not feel like I was in a optical mill being pushed on for the next person to be seen. Thank you to everyone we encountered on that very cold day-everyone was smiling and so kind.

I walked into my appointment frustrated after my initial interaction with the clerk at the front desk. However, as soon as I met Dr. Immler and his assistant, they really changed my feelings about the encounter. They were absolutely wonderful, made me feel welcome, and thoroughly explained everything they were doing. My check out experience was with another employee was much more satisfying and overall my experience ended on a positive note.

As someone who has needed glasses for 15 years, I've seen many optometrists over the years and Dr. Immler has by and far been my favorite. I didn't feel rushed during my appointment, he listened to my questions, and provided thorough answers. His personality was pleasant and welcoming which made me feel at ease throughout my appointment. I am certain that I will continue going to Dr. Immler in the future as long as my insurance allows me to; he really is the gold standard for patient care.
