Pillars of medicine

“The pillars of medicine – patient care, teaching, and research – are all important and rewarding. I have been fortunate to work among some of ophthalmology’s leading scientists, and also to teach at a remarkable university for nearly 20 years. But nothing compares to the experience of helping individual patients overcome visual disability, and to watch them benefit from the most recent advances in our field.”

Dr. Aaron Fay has contributed to over 100 publications, 25 book chapters, and one major textbook of which he is the chief editor. He was full time faculty at MEEI for over 17 years where he directed the oculoplastics and orbital surgery service. He is currently clinical professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.
