ONH Conference ~ March 2012
Mark S. Borchert, MD, is director of the Eye Birth Defects Institute and Eye Technology Institute in the Vision Center at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, where he is head of its Division of Ophthalmology. Dr. Borchert is associate professor of clinical ophthalmology and neurology at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. After receiving his medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine, he completed his residency at the Doheny Eye Institute University of Southern California, and a fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, Harvard University. Dr. Borchert, who has been listed in “Best Doctors in America,” also has received honors from the Pan American Association of Opthalmology, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and Society of Heed Fellows, as well as several teaching awards from the Keck School of Medicine. He directs the world’s largest study into optic nerve hypoplasia, now the single leading cause of blindness in infants in the United States and Europe. Another area of Dr. Borchert’s research is the development of better diagnostic and treatment tools, in particular the pioneering use of spectroscopy to measure glucose levels in the eye.
