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.

My experience with Dr. Perry was absolutely one of my best medical experiences to date. I have other eye issues and was nervous about doing this procedure, even though I knew that I truly wanted to do this lid lift. He put me at ease because he had such a great "bedside" manner, explaining in great detail exactly how this surgery would take place and what would occur. He answered all my questions and assured me how "easy" it would be for me. I already have recommended him to a friend who wishes to do the same surgery. Dr. Perry is an excellent doctor who is part of your Cleveland Clinic family.
