September 24, 2009 -- Today, the Hamilton Eye Institute welcomed our twelfth William N. Williford, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professor, Lanning B. Kline, MD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Alabama School of Medicine.

The event began with a warm welcome by Dr. Barrett G. Haik, director of the Hamilton Eye Institute. Next, Dr. Peter A. Netland extolled the major accomplishments of both Dr. Kline's and Dr. Williford's esteemed careers in ophthalmic medicine and then welcomed Dr. Kline to the stage. In Dr. Kline's excellent lecture, "Practice Pearls in Ophthalmology," he discussed the top ten things physicians should know in the diagnosis and treatment of neuro-ophthalmologic conditions.

Following Dr. Kline's lecture, Dr. William N. Williford and Mrs. Gloria Williford presented him with a commemorative plaque. This custom-designed award, etched with a beautiful artistic rendering of the Hamilton Eye Institute, is the first of its kind. We were delighted to give it to Dr. Kline in appreciation for his outstanding service as the twelfth Williford Distinguished Visiting Professor.
