Thomas M. Bosley, MD, is the Knights Templar Eye Foundation Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins University. He is interested in all aspects of Neuro-ophthalmology and has been particularly involved in genetic abnormalities affecting human vision and ocular motility.
He received his BA from Yale and his MD from Stanford. He then completed a Neurology residency at the University of Pennsylvania and became board certified in Neurology (ABPN) in 1983. He also did fellowships in Neuro-ophthalmology at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia and in Neurochemistry at the Institute of Neurology, Queens Square, London.
After finishing his training, Dr. Bosley joined the Neuro-ophthalmology Unit at Wills Eye Hospital and practiced there and at other teaching hospitals in the Philadelphia area for the next 15 years. Since then, he has spent considerable periods of time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as one of very few Neuro-ophthalmologists in the Middle East. Because of this experience he became particularly interested in genetic issues, including identifying a new genetic problem now known as the Bosley-Salih-Alorainy syndrome.
During his career, Dr. Bosley has been Chief at different times of two Neurology departments and of two Neuro-ophthalmology divisions. He has been Director of two Neurology Residency Programs; he also founded a Neurology Residency Program and a Neuro-ophthalmology Fellowship Program. He has co-authored more than 200 articles and chapters.
