The Power List 2016


Eduardo Alfonso

Chairman and Director of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, Florida

Physician, surgeon, professor and researcher, Alfonso is an internationally known expert in ocular infectious diseases. In 2006, he documented an increase in the incidence of an aggressive form of fungal corneal infection that was related to soft contact lens use – findings that drew considerable media attention, and significantly reduced the number of new infections. His research interests include bacterial and fungal sensitivity, and the development and clinical application of keratoprostheses.
