Dr. Andrew Stacey cares for patients with general eye problems including diabetes and cataracts. His subspecialty focus is intraocular and ocular surface tumors in adults and children. He has worked at a number of large ocular oncology referral centers across the world including the international retinoblastoma referral center in Siena, Italy and the renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital ocular oncology unit in London, England. He sees patients with conjunctival tumors, iris tumors, choroidal tumors, metastatic lesions, and retinoblastoma. He has authored many publications and book chapters related to ocular tumors and maintains numerous national and international research collaborations in the field.

He recently moved to Seattle to become an Assistant Professor at the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Washington as a comprehensive ophthalmologist also specializing in ocular oncology.

Dr. Stacey grew up in Northeast Ohio. He earned a bachelor’s degree and master's degree in Statistics at the Brigham Young University where he was also a linebacker on the football team. During college he took two years off school and athletics to volunteer for his church in Northern Italy. He completed his medical degree at the Ohio State University and completed his ophthalmology training at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center. He completed a fellowship in ocular oncology at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, U.K.

He currently lives in Seattle with his wife and three young children. 

Patient Care Philosophy

An appointment with your doctor can be stressful. When your eyes and vision are affected, the stress can be magnified. I enjoy teaching my patients about what I see in their eyes and providing them with information and options, then together we can come up with the best course of action.

Personal Interests

In his free time, Dr. Stacey enjoys running, mountain biking, fly fishing, and being in the mountains with his family.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Stacey specializes in cataract surgery and ocular oncology. He sees patients with conjunctival tumors (papilloma, intraepithelial neoplasia, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, lymphoma), adult intraocular tumors (iris melanoma, ciliary body melanoma, choroidal melanoma, intraocular metastasis, intraocular lymphoma, retinal angiomas, choroidal hemangiomas, vasoproliferative tumors of the retina), and pediatric intraocular tumors and vascular abnormalities (retinoblastoma, medulloepithelioma, Coats' disease).

Research Interests

Dr. Stacey’s research interests include emerging therapeutics for patients with choroidal melanomas, novel statistical approaches to medical research and clinical trial design, telemedicine and new technologies for early diagnosis of ocular tumors, and research into retinoblastoma treatments and outcomes.
