Florida Lions Eye Bank Medical Director, Dr. Sander R. Dubovy, awarded Victor T. Curtin Chair in Ophthalmology.

On February 5th, amongst colleagues, family and friends, Eye Bank Medical Director, Dr. Sander R. Dubovy accepted the appointment of the Victor T. Curtin Chair in Ophthalmology, which was established with a major gift from the Lions of Florida to support experimental ophthalmic pathology. Ophthalmic pathology and the understanding of ophthalmic disease at the tissue level is integral to the treatment of patients and education of training ophthalmologists. Victor T. Curtin, M.D., Bascom Palmer’s second faculty member, established the Florida Lions Ocular Pathology Laboratory at Bascom Eye in 1962 and guided its growth for nearly 40 years. Today, it is directed by Sander R. Dubovy, M.D., one of only a handful of physicians who is board-certified in ophthalmology and anatomic pathology. If you would like to make a donation to the Florida Lions Eye Bank in honor of Dr. Dubovy and this momentous occasion click “Donate Funds” above.
