A true visionary, he tackled clinical, social, ethical, economic, and organizational issues that challenged Pediatric Ophthalmology. His intellectual curiosity and infectious positive can-do attitude reshaped CEF and morphed it into the Foundation of AAPOS.
Pioneer researcher in visual neurophysiology, he transferred discoveries in strabismic and anisometropic amblyopia in primates into the clinical arena. Recognized world leader in strabismus, author of seminal work and admired educator and mentor.
A world-renowned surgeon, respected educator and scientist. Founder of the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco, he is especially admired for his notable contributions to strabismus and binocular vision, and for international research.
Research collaboration with Torsten Wiesel earned them a Nobel Prize and mutual praise as ‘Rock Stars’ of ophthalmology. A brilliant neurobiologist, he defined how the brain handles the information it receives from the eyes.
Collaborating with David Hubel, he explored critical periods during which neural connections present at birth can be modified by visual deprivation. His groundbreaking research of the brain and amblyopia has literally shaped pediatric ophthalmology.
Recognized as a brilliant physician and founder of modern ophthalmic pathology, and well-regarded author, scientist, most generous teacher and influential mentor. His seminal contributions relate to retinoblastoma, ocular melanoma and other intraocular tumors.
A consummate teacher, astute observer and innovative thinker, he morphed medical complications and toxic effects into beneficial therapies. Duly credited with pioneering the use of bupivacaine and botulinum toxin in strabismus, blepharospasm, torticollis, and general medicine.
Advanced our understanding of pediatric retinal diseases. Pioneered the use of Xenon arc photo-coagulator and participated in developing innovative protocols of cryotherapy and laser treatment in retinopathy of prematurity.
Recognized for international humanitarian contributions to ophthalmic education in developing countries, she created CEF’s Miller Travel Fund. Her research interests include teratology, congenital ocular anomalies and epidemiology, and thalidomide embryopathy.
Celebrated for her extensive contributions to the field of ophthalmology as a respected ocular oncologist, oculoplastic surgeon and ophthalmic pathologist. Her expertise encompasses retinoblastoma, uveal melanoma, and other intraocular tumors.
Respected educator, specializing in ophthalmic pathology and retinal surgery. Celebrated for his prolific contributions to the literature and to the diagnosis and treatment of ocular tumors. Recognized founder of the International Society of Ocular Oncology.
Inspired by the art of treating and caring for patients, he pursued a brilliant career in pediatric ophthalmology and neuro-ophthalmology. Particularly enhanced our knowledge of congenital cataract and vision development, neurophysiology and ophthalmic epidemiology.
Teacher, innovator and inventor of patents for optical instrumentation to detect strabismus. Critical thinker and educator, he earned international recognition in ocular motility, with expertise in adjustable suture surgery and clinical optics.
Honored for his extensive work to enhance ophthalmology education and patient eye care internationally. Respected for his exceptional leadership and monumental contributions to ophthalmology worldwide.
Admired for contributions to academia, his passions and energy as a teacher define him. He is recognized for mentoring and his interest in humanitarian efforts, primarily his leadership role with ORBIS.
Dedicated teacher, advancing the specialty of pediatric ophthalmology. His research supported innovations in the treatment of congenital monocular cataract, strabismus, and retinopathy of prematurity. Exhibited expertise and leadership in enhancing institutions.
Recognized for his remarkable career and lasting contributions to ophthalmology, epidemiology and public health worldwide through his discovery of the link between vitamin A deficiency and childhood blindness and mortality.
