2015 Hawaiian Eye Meeting

January 17, 2015 - January 22, 2015

The 2015 Hawaiian Eye Meeting was held at the Grand Wailea on the beautiful island of Maui. Founded by our very own Dr. Corboy, we were pleased to see the growth of this meeting that serves ophthalmologists, nurses & allied health workers, and administrators.


The HEF held annual board meetings and passed the SAB Presidency torch from Dr. Spencer to Ric Tiplady. We thank Dr. Spencer for his 30 years of service to the HEF. Read More

We also presented the annual Phillip M. Corboy, M.D. Memorial Award for Distinguished Service to Ophthalmology (sponsored by Bausch + Lomb) to Dr. Randall Olson. Read More

We were also lucky enough to welcome the Biosyntrx Thornton Humanitarian Award to our program. This inaugural award was presented to our very own Dr. Jeff Rutgard. Read More

We also welcomed one of HEF’s Lancaster awardees, Dr. Khahn Nguyen from Vietnam. Every year, HEF awards one Burmese and one Vietnamese doctor the opportunity to study ophthalmology in the U.S., shadow our surgeons across the country, and attend the prestigious Lancaster training program in Maine.



Thank you to our partners, SEE International and Project Vision Hawai’i for sharing our booth.
