Wheaton Eye Clinic Welcomes International Fellows

Under the creation and direction of Dr. Richard Gieser, the International Fellows Program of Wheaton Eye Clinic continues to grow. This summer and fall, ophthalmologists from Iraq, India, Libya and Ethiopia traveled from their homelands to Wheaton, Illinois in order to receive several months of invaluable subspecialty training.

Under the mentorship of Wheaton Eye Clinic physicians, and living in clinic-provided housing, these young doctors are learning the latest techniques and treatments in cornea, glaucoma, retina and pediatrics. By taking this knowledge back home to their patients, these doctors will begin providing specialized ophthalmic treatment often unavailable in developing countries.
