Dr. Hackett provides care in comprehensive ophthalmology, cataract, and refractive surgery. He grew up in Franklin, TN and attended Vanderbilt University as an undergraduate where he graduated summa cum laude. During this time, he made several medical outreach trips to Guatemala to work at a hospital; it was there that he decided that he wanted to be a surgeon so that he could help the sick and less fortunate. He attended medical school and ophthalmology residency at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. During residency he received an achievement award for his pursuit of additional training in refractive surgery. He has authored over 10 peer-reviewed articles as well as a textbook chapter on cataract surgery. He incorporates the latest advancements in the treatment of cataract, glaucoma, dry eye, and refractive surgery (i.e. LASIK, PRK) into his practice. He is involved on the national level in reducing healthcare waste and costs as a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology Surgical Pharmaceutical Waste Subcommittee.
