The UMMC Ophthalmology Resident Research Day and Samuel B. Johnson, MD, Memorial Lecture is the annual conference to showcase resident and faculty research projects as well as hear lectures from a leader in the field on ophthalmic research.
Each Department of Ophthalmology resident is responsible for one clinical or basic science research project every year. Results of their projects are presented with their faculty preceptors at Resident Research Day. In addition, there is a guest lecturer present to give the featured lecture in honor of Dr. Samuel B. Johnson, the first UMMC Department of Ophthalmology chair.
The 2023 lecturer is David L. Guyton, MD. He is the Zanvyl Krieger Professor of Ophthalmology at Johns Hopkins' Wilmer Eye Institute, specializing in strabismus and ophthalmic optics. He has served as President of both AAPOS and ARVO. His contributions in clinical optics include one of the first automated refractors; investigation of proper techniques for prescribing cylinders and centering corneal surgical procedures; and the Potential Acuity Meter for assessing the potential visual acuity in cataract patients.
His lecture is titled "Reaching for the holy grail in strabismus: The mechanism underlying infantile esotropia."
