Dr. Jane Edmond, MD
Jane C. Edmond M.D. has been a faculty member at BCM since 1991. From 1996 to 2003, she followed her husband to Pennsylvania, having several titles at prestigious eye institutes, such as Assistant Surgeon at A. I. duPont Hospital for Children, Attending Surgeon at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Clinical Associate at the Scheie Eye Institute, the Hospital for the University of Pennsylvania and Wills Eye Hospital. She rejoined BCM as Assistant Professor in 2003 and was promoted to Associate Professor in April of 2010, and Professor in 2015. Throughout her career she has focused on the patient care mission of the college, but increasingly in the last decade her focus has been education at the national and international levels. Dr Edmond is one of less than 20 pediatric neuro-ophthalmologists in the US, and the first at Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. Patients from a 3 state area seek her diagnostic skills and surgical treatment. She has demonstrated excellence in patient care through her highly productive and diverse clinical practice, superb knowledge and skill in the evaluation and management of pediatric patients with complex neuro-ophthalmologic disorders, particularly the sequelae of brain tumors, and children with cortical visual impairment and craniofacial syndromes. She also maintains a busy surgical practice, performing 4-7 eye realignment surgeries per week on children and adults alike. She received the Honor Award from the American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus in 2009. In addition, she received the Secretariat Award in 2003, Life-long Education for the Ophthalmologist Continuing Education Award in 2004, Achievement Award in 2005, and Senior Achievement Award in 2013 from the Board of Trustees of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. She is currently a Trustee at Large for the Board of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. During her faculty positions at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital, Wills Eye Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Dr. Edmond mentored 42 post-residency clinical fellows. She currently participates in all academic activities in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus at Texas Children's Hospital, including daily contact with 1-2 ophthalmology resident and the 2 pediatric ophthalmology fellows, and frequent contact with the pediatric and neurology residents rotating on the service. She presents on many topics in the resident lecture series in pediatric ophthalmology and neuro-ophthalmology., including Special Strabismus Syndromes, Ocular and Visual Sequelae of Preterm Birth, Cortical Visual Impairment and Cognitive Visual Dysfunction, Amblyopia, Esotropia, Exotropia and Anisocoria, to name just a few. She is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences. She averages eight talks/year, primarily by invitation, since 2010 at such conferences as the World Ophthalmology Conference in Berlin, Joint Congress of the European Society of Ophthalmology and AAO in Geneva, World Congress of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus in Milan, Session Chair in Intercontinental Perspective of Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus in Singapore. In terms of keynote lectures, she has been a keynote speaker at Toronto Sick Kids Hospital and the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians, the Chilean Congress of Ophthalmology in Vina del Mar, and most recently, the Louis J Girard Lecturer for the annual Baylor Ophthalmology Alumni Association and Resident's Day. She has been invited to be the 2016 William E. Scott Lecturer at the Iowa University Hospitals and Clinics, the place of her fellowship training. Yearly she participates in workshops and symposium at the annual meetings of AAPOS and AAO. Just this year, the workshop of which she was the senior instructor, entitled "the Neuro-ophthalmic Manifestations of Systemic Disease", received the highest attendee score out of the 20 workshops. In 2015 she was the director of AAO subspecialty day and pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, organizing 7 hours of CME bearing content, roughly 50 speakers and 500 attendees, domestic and international pediatric ophthalmologists. Lastly, due to her conviction to reach out to all providers of pediatric health care, she also educates nurses on a national level. She has participated in the annual meetings of the National Association of School Nurses (yearly since 2011) and the National Association of Pediatric Advanced Practice Nurses (2015). At these conferences she delivers a very popular multi-hour workshop, educating nurses about the diagnosis and treatment of common and dangerous pediatric ophthalmic conditions. Each workshop is attended by over 300 school nurses. She has been featured on the radio and in online media by US News and World Report and HealthDay (potential impact of measles on eye and visual system), National Public Radio and ABC news radio (toy related eye injuries) National Public Radio (iphone apps and ophthalmic disease detection), and general pediatric eye health pieces for Parents and Baby magazine. She serves as an Oral Board Examiner for the American Board of Ophthalmology since 2003. She has published papers in peer reviewed journals and online. One of her most notable efforts has been her participation in the creation and publication of "Parameters of Care for Craniosynostosis", created with a multidisciplinary team through task force sponsored by the Center for Disease Control. She was the senior pediatric ophthalmologist. Another notable effort has been her recent AAO Focal Points module entitled "Why Can't My Baby See?". These popular AAO modules offer concise learning in print and online formats, and are purchased worldwide.
