Celebrating Dr. Kuldev Singh
KULDEV SINGH, MD, MPH, professor of ophthalmology, well-known for his outstanding clinical care, visionary research, and mentorship at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford, celebrated his 30th anniversary with the institute in 2022. To honor this milestone, Jeffrey Goldberg, MD, PhD, Blumenkranz Smead professor and chair of ophthalmology at Stanford, hosted a special gathering of colleagues, friends and family.
Singh’s professional peers have recognized him as one of the world’s most influential ophthalmologists and have bestowed upon him the highest achievement awards. His ambitious research goals include speeding new drug development, delivering “precision health” medical and surgical glaucoma options, and bringing new focus on patient-reported outcomes. As an educator, he is dedicated to training the next generation of talented glaucoma clinicians and researchers.
We look forward to many more years of Singh’s superb service at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford. Thank you to all those who attended this special celebration and to those who generously made gifts to a 30th anniversary fund in honor of Singh to support his ongoing work in the years ahead—improving care for glaucoma patients.
