Dr. Feldman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Feldman "Dr. Brad H. Feldman is a board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist specializing incornea transplantation, cataract surgery, and laser vision correction such as iLASIK and PRK. He is experienced in the implantation of astigmatism and presbyopia correcting intraocular lenses and performs state-of-the-art corneal surgeries, including partial thickness endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK, DMEK) and DALK corneal transplantation as well as Intacs ring segments for keratoconus. He also specializes in 'Bladeless' Customized LASIK surgery using the Intralase laser, in addition to advanced surface ablation. Dr. Feldman joined the Philadelphia Eye Associates, Wills Eye Hospital, and the Kremer Eye Center after completing a prestigious fellowship at the Duke University Eye Center, considered one of the nation's premier training centers. Thirteen years earlier, he had majored in Biology at Duke University for his undergraduate training. Following college graduation he returned home to Rochester, New York, attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine, and upon graduation was chosen by his peers to deliver the class valedictory address. After a year of internship at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, he completed a three-year ophthalmology residency at the George Washington University in Washington, DC, where he served as a Chief Resident during his final year. Dr. Feldman teaches residents at the Wills Eye Hospital on three services: Cornea, Comprehensive and Primary Eye Care, and Refractive. He is the primary IntraLASIK instructor for the Wills Eye Hospital. Throughout his training and career, he has been particularly interested in improving health care quality both domestically and abroad. He was awarded the ASCRS Foundation Grant in 2007 to study the role of virtual reality simulation in cataract surgical training—a tool that is improving the safety of surgery just as flight simulators have improved the safety of flying. He has presented, led instructional courses, and published extensively on this and other topics in leading ophthalmology journals and at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. Dr. Feldman serves as the Editor-in-Chief of EyeWiki, a high-quality, free, online encyclopedia with content that is created and edited by ophthalmologists. This online resource has already been viewed over 19 million times since its inception in 2010. From 2010 through 2014, Dr. Feldman served as Chair of the American Academy of Ophthalmology's International Subcommittee of the Young Ophthalmologist Committee, collaborating with ophthalmologists across the globe. He has organized symposiums for the exchange of technological, surgical, and research breakthroughs, helped provide resources for ophthalmologists training abroad, and advocated for impoverished populations suffering from high rates of blindness and visual disability. He has received the AAO's Achievement Award and Secretariat Award for these and other contributions to ophthalmology. Dr. Feldman is also the founding director of the Wills Eye Hospital Center for Academic Global Ophthalmology, a center dedicated to the elimination of avoidable blindness both domestically and abroad. In this position, Dr. Feldman coordinates volunteer experiences for residents and faculty, builds collaborations with NGOs and charitable institutes, directs research towards the prevention of blindness, and creates educational opportunities for ophthalmologists in lower resource countries. Dr. Feldman is available to see patients at the South Broad Street and Wills Eye Hospital offices, and sees patients weekly as part of the teaching staff on both the Cornea Service and Cataract and Primary Eye Care Service at the Wills Eye Hospital."
