About the Program
The mission of the Duke Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellowship program is to develop in trainees a fundamental understanding of neurologic eye diagnosis and management and to promote intellectual curiosity. We are dedicated to the principle that research into disease mechanisms, patient care, and new technologies is the primary method by which we improve the outcomes of our patients.
The Duke Neuro-ophthalmology Division fellows care for patients with a wide range of pathology. Fellows see patients in the Duke Eye Center clinics, Duke Hospital, and the adjacent Durham VA Hospital. Duke neuro-ophthalmology fellows are active participants in teaching and mentoring resident trainees.
