COMPREHENSIVE EYE CARE
Most of the department’s faculty members provide comprehensive eye care services, as well as services related to their own specialties. These include medical and surgical management of all eye diseases. Cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation is the most common surgery performed.
Each faculty member guides one or more of the following specialties:
· WuDunn is a nationally recognized, fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist with more than 23 years of experience caring for patients with the condition. He provides medical treatment and performs laser procedures and glaucoma surgical procedures, including minimally invasive surgeries. He has had many foundation- and industry-sponsored grants and plans to promote glaucoma research prominently in this department.
· Grover, also fellowship-trained, has been in the department 13 years. He specializes in medical retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration and performs lasers and intravitreal injections. He also specializes in neuro-ophthalmology and collaborates closely with other departments such as neurology, neurosurgery and radiology.
Grover is director of a specialty practice for patients with inherited retinal diseases and provides electrophysiological services for adults. This practice is one of the very few of its kind in the country, with patients coming from hundreds of miles away for care. He is actively involved with the Jacksonville chapter of Foundation Fighting Blindness, of which is the founding member.
· Madow, who joined the department last year, is an experienced, fellowship-trained vitreoretinal surgeon. In addition to managing patients with retinal diseases, including diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, he performs laser procedures, intravitreal injections and vitreoretinal surgical procedures. Also, he is one of a few specialists in the country who focus on uveitis.
