The doctor is board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Osteopathic Boards of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, a joint organization that provides board certification to qualified DOs who specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the eye (ophthalmologists) and to qualified DOs who specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of the ears, nose, and throat (otolaryngologists).

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery. 

With a passion for his profession, Dr. Porias contributes his time and expertise to providing medical and surgical treatment for people in underprivileged areas. His mission work has taken him to Mexico, Central America (Belize), and El Salvador.
