Alex Christoff Selected to Give Scobee Lecture


Alex Christoff, an orthoptist and assistant professor in the Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus, has been chosen to deliver the 45th annual Richard G. Scobee Memorial Lecture at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meetings in Chicago in October 2014. This annual keynote lecture is given by a pediatric ophthalmologist or an orthoptist in tribute to Dr. Scobee, who has been referred to as the “father of American orthoptics”. Dr. Scobee’s passion for strabismus, teaching and research led him to write his textbook, “The Oculorotary Muscles,” in 1947 and 1952 and author over 60 articles. Being selected to deliver the Scobee Lecture is one of the highest honors given to an American orthoptist.
