Friday, June 6, the Hamilton Eye Institute celebrated the graduation of its senior residents and instructors at the 43rd Annual Ophthalmology Alumni/Residents’ Day. The event began with a day of case and research presentations by residents and faculty, featured a keynote lecture by the George K. Kambara, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professor, Keith D. Carter, MD, Lillian C. O’Brien and Dr. C.S. O’Brien Chair in Ophthalmology, professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, and  professor of Otolaryngology at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa.

Dr. Carter’s lecture, “The Tracks of My (Patients’) Tears,” provided remarkable insight into the anatomic and systemic causes and treatment of excessive tearing. Following Dr. Carter’s presentation, an engraved award was presented to him by Natalie C. Kerr, MD, FACS, Hiatt Professor of Ophthalmology and HEI Residency Program director, in appreciation for his outstanding service as the 24th Kambara Distinguished Visiting Professor. We offer our most sincere gratitude to Dr. Carter for making the 43rd Annual Alumni/Residents’ Day a complete success.
