19th Annual William N. Williford, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professor


October 6, 2016, the Hamilton Eye Institute proudly welcomed the 19th Annual William N. Williford, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professor, Allen D. Beck, MD, a very highly regarded glaucoma surgeon who is Interim Chair and Director, and William and Clara Redmond Professor of Ophthalmology, at the Emory Eye Center, Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dr. Beck presented an outstanding and very valuable lecture for our faculty and residents on glaucoma following congenital cataract surgery. The following morning, he also presented several additional lectures for our residents. Many of our faculty attended these lectures, as well, and found them tremendously insightful and informative. 

The Williford Lecture is named for anterior segment and cataract surgeon William N. Williford, MD, a 1975 graduate of our residency program who established this endowed lectureship in 1997. Department Chair James C. Fleming, MD, FACS, and all of our faculty and residents are grateful to both Drs. Williford and Beck for making the 19th Williford Lecture such a wonderful success.
