Dr. Paul T. Finger has been inducted into the Retina Hall of Fame!
The Eye Cancer Foundation is proud to congratulate our Founder and Chairman, Dr. Paul T. Finger on being inducted into the Retina Hall of Fame! In 1998, Paul T. Finger, MD established The Eye Cancer Foundation as an educational and supportive resource for eye cancer patients, their families, and physicians. Prior to The Eye Cancer Foundation, there was no open-access, world-wide educational information or support services available for eye cancer patients and others. Since its inception, The ECF has grown to become the leading non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of eye cancer patients worldwide. His work did not stop there. Dr. Finger has also been a prominent figure in the ophthalmology world. Not only has he invented tools that help treat melanoma and other forms of eye cancer, but he has been training fellows for over 30 years from the USA, unserved and underserved countries. His expertise and knowledge allowed him to train others who are now able to locate, follow-up and treat different types of eye cancers. Even through the pandemic lockdown, Dr. Finger and associates have published research which allowed people to continue to learn and grow in the ophthalmology world (despite the pandemic and not being able to travel).
When asked about his induction, Dr. Finger replied, “I would like to take this time to thank The Retina Hall of Fame Committee members for honoring me. I am pleased to join my selected colleagues in the Retina Hall of Fame. My heartfelt thanks goes out to President Dr. Tarek S. Hassan, the Treasurer, Dr. John T Thompson, and the committee Drs. Robert Avery, Jerald Bovino, Mark Humayun, and Nicholas Zakov as well as the Executive Director, Petra Vanderlinden, and the Retina World Congress.”
Again, congratulations to Dr. Paul T. Finger and to many more years of accomplishments and success!
