Ninel Gregori and Justin Townsend; and Luis Haddock, Jorge Fortun and Yale Fisher in Palm Beach; and Stephen Schwartz and Jaclyn Kovach in Naples. Fellows work closely with the faculty in the clinics and operating room. In the clinics, expertise is developed in the diagnosis and management of retinal vascular diseases, retinal inflammatory diseases, ocular tumors, macular degeneration, inherited retinal degenerations, and retinopathy of prematurity. In the operating room, extensive experience is gained in vitrectomy and scleral buckling and vitrectomy techniques, placement of radioactive plaques for ocular tumors, evaluation and treatment of children with retinoblastoma, and the management of ocular trauma. Academically, the fellows participate in teaching conferences and are actively encouraged to participate in clinical or basic research.
