After completing his undergraduate degree at the United States Naval Academy, he studied medicine through the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Dr. Maier then completed his residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, after which he was assigned to the Naval hospital at Okinawa in Japan where he served both active-duty personnel and locals with comprehensive ophthalmology.
During his Navy years, Dr. Maier used his training to specialize in both cataract and refractive surgery, including LASIK surgery, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and ICL (Visian) procedures.
