Congratulations to the Wills Eye Hospital Retina Service on 60 years of dedicated and excellent patient care, research and education! Mid Atlantic Retina is proud to be Retina Physicians and Surgeons for Wills Eye Hospital. “The pioneering Retina Service is a core part of Wills Eye Hospital and together, we are so very proud of our rich history of training, clinical care, and research. Our celebration of this milestone 60th year is one of the many ways Wills Eye is ushering in this exciting new era in new treatments and cures for patients confronting eye disease in its many forms,” said Carl D. Regillo, MD, FACS, Chief of Retina Service at Wills Eye Hospital.
The Wills Eye Ball celebrated 60 years of the retina service with local physicians, community leaders and the team of Mid Atlantic Retina doctors. There was a special tribute to Joseph Maguire, MD, our beloved member of the Mid Atlantic Retina team who passed away in 2018 and net proceeds of the Ball will benefit the Joseph I. Maguire, MD Retina Research Fund at Wills Eye Hospital. The fund was established in tribute to Dr. Maguire by his friends and colleagues on the Retina Service and will support exciting evolutions in the treatment of a wide variety of devastating retinal degenerative diseases.
