Steven M. Brady, D.O.

Dr. Brady is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy (Annapolis, MD), earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Science. In 1998, he graduated second in his class at the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine (Biddeford, ME), after intelligence and basic underwater demolition / SEAL training, and 6 years of service in Naval Intelligence and Naval Special Warfare. His wealth of experience and expertise stems from an arduous and selective internship and residency at the nation’s top rated hospital in the Department of Defense where his knowledge was rated in the top 5% of his peers, as well as years of service in at least 8 countries around the world - learning, teaching and performing thousands of surgeries. After two successful years as Chief of Ophthalmology at the only military medical center in Europe, and directing the only warfighter refractive eye surgery center in Europe, he was hand selected for research and focused training in Glaucoma which was performed in Seattle, WA.

Dr. Brady comes to Cascade Eye & Skin Centers from Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC), after 20 combined years of service with the Navy and the Army. He most recently served as director of the glaucoma service there, and managed surgical glaucoma from the American Lake Veterans Administration facility. He was also the previous director of the cataract surgery service, and managed the optics/refraction curriculum, while on staff at MAMC. Dr. Brady served as Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Washington, School of Medicine from 2008 to 2015. He has been teacher of the year at both the University of Washington, School of Medicine, as well as at Madigan, but his passion remains taking care of each patient he has the privilege of seeing.

Naturally, Dr. Brady is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners. In addition, he is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Glaucoma Society. As a seasoned ophthalmologist, he has refined surgical skills, up to date knowledge on complex eye diseases, and is eager, ready and capable of treating everything from refractive errors with glasses/LASIK/PRK, to emergent vision threatening eye conditions.

Other accomplishments include many military service commendation and achievement medals and ribbons, French language fluency, author or co-author of numerous scientific papers on refractive surgery and other topics, earning 3 Varsity letters during 4 years of Division I college football at Annapolis, completing an Ironman Triathlon and several national/international marathons, a top 5 state ranking and top 10 national ranking in Cat 1 Masters cross country mountain biking championship; however, his greatest joy and achievement is keeping up with his wife and three children, with whom he shares his zest for life, love, and learning.

Keith F. Dahlhauser, MD

With over 8000 ocular surgeries (LASIK, PRK, cataract, and glaucoma), Keith F. Dahlhauser, M.D., F.A.C.S. has the experience; but it is more than just experience that counts. He says, "The most experienced hair cutter is the barber at boot camp, but would you want him to give you a haircut before your wedding?" Just as important as experience in surgery is attention to detail, modern equipment, concern for the patient, and monitoring of results. Therefore, all surgical patients are seen preoperatively and postoperatively by the same ophthalmologist/surgeon at Cascade Eye & Skin Centers. 

Prior to joining Cascade, Dr. Dahlhauser was a Lieutenant Colonel and chief of cataract surgery at Madigan Army Medical Center, where he spent 10 years teaching residents how to perform cataract and refractive surgery. Dr. Dahlhauser received the "Teacher of the Year" award in six of those 10 years and gained experience dealing with unusual complications. The medical center also gave him a $10,000 grant for introducing modern cataract surgery techniques. In addition to performing hundreds of glaucoma surgeries at Madigan, he also ran the glaucoma clinic at the American Lake VA Hospital. Some of his favorite experiences come from his twice yearly voluntary humanitarian missions to Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Peru, Dominican Republic, Trinidad, or Malawi Africa; where he performs surgery for the poor and underprivileged. He is currently president of Cascade Eye and Skin, on the Pierce County Medical Society Board (serving as President in 2015), and on the Washington Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons Board.  

Dr. Dahlhauser grew up in Illinois, received a B.S. in Biochemistry, a medical degree at the University of Iowa, and completed his internship at Grand Rapids, Michigan, as well as an ophthalmology residency at the University of Minnesota. He is board certified in ophthalmology, scoring in the top 10 percent, and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. His research publications cover topics such as anterior capsule contraction after cataract surgery, scar limitation with refractive surgery, and problems with LASIK microkeratomes.

Michael W. Rausch, M.D.

"Always remember that there is a person on the other side of the eye." It’s a simple philosophy that Dr. Rausch takes very seriously. He aims to treat eye issues while keeping in mind the importance of talking with and educating his patients. "It is important to have a doctor that is qualified and intelligent, but also one with whom people feel they can communicate."

Dr. Rausch grew up in Colorado, where he learned to enjoy the beautiful views of the great outdoors. His decision to study ophthalmology stemmed from meeting and then working with an eye doctor while volunteering at a local hospital. He then attended the University of Colorado Medical School, graduating with honors and multiple "Letters of Academic Excellence" from the Dean.

A move to Seattle with his future wife followed. He attended internship and then ophthalmology training at the University of Washington.

During this time he was voted teacher of the year. He joined Cascade with experience gained from an academic setting and now practices with enthusiasm in our private practice offices.
