The Power List 2016

Robert Osher

Professor of Ophthalmology at the College of Medicine of the University of Cincinnati and Medical Director Emeritus of Cincinnati Eye Institute, Ohio

Robert Osher has designed many contemporary IOLs and surgical instruments, and numerous new surgical techniques to go with them – or improve upon what was state-of-the-art. Many of these have been captured in video, and Osher’s surgical videos have won more than 25 first-prize honors at international congresses, including three Grand Prizes at the ASCRS and ESCRS congresses. Outside his interest in cataract surgery, Osher has been a proud coach of more than 70 youth baseball and basketball teams – reaching the National Championships in each sport – and has published 17 children’s stories, raising money with the proceeds for local and national charitable organizations.
