6 Wills Eye Hospital Physicians Make The Ophthalmologist 2022 Power List

The list highlights most inspiring and influential ophthalmologists in the world

PHILADELPHIA – Six outstanding Wills Eye Hospital physicians were recognized for their trailblazing achievements through inclusion on the 2022 Power List by The Ophthalmologist, an industry magazine based in the United Kingdom.

The Wills Eye physicians on the Power List are:

“As ophthalmologists, it is truly humbling to receive such a designation, especially since it reflects a vote of our peers,” said Julia A. Haller, MD, Ophthalmologist-in-Chief at Wills Eye Hospital.  “I congratulate all of our colleagues who have earned this distinction.  It is our great privilege to serve patients every day with compassion, mentor the next generation of physicians, and spearhead research innovations in the field of ophthalmology.”

Power List awardees are nominated by colleagues, peers, and readers of The Ophthalmologist. All six of the Wills Eye physicians have been named to at least one previous list compiled by The Ophthalmologist, including the inaugural 2014 Power List, the 2021 Power List highlighting the most influential female figures in ophthalmology, and others.

“The repeated inclusion of Wills Eye faculty on The Ophthalmologist Power List speaks volumes to the talent, passion, and commitment of our physicians,” said Joseph Bilson, Chief Executive Officer at Wills Eye. “The entire Wills family is proud of the distinguished physicians and alumni who made the list.”

Wills Eye alumni named to this year's list include: Helen Danesh-Meyer, MD; Zelia Maria Correra, MD; Eric Donnenfeld, MD; David Friedman, MD; Steven Gedde, MD; Sir Peng Tee Khaw, MD; and Robert Osher, MD.
