David Almeida

Vitreoretinal surgeon, Vitreoretinal Surgery, PA, Minneapolis, MN, USA

A gifted vitreoretinal surgeon, holder of a PhD in Pharmaceutical Drug Research, and co-founder of Citrus Therapeutics and author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications, Almeida’s professional interests (besides ophthalmology) include business innovation and ophthalmic and biomedical research. Almeida writes a weekly blog, the Sunday Surgical Scrub, which can be found on his website He is also a competitive squash player and says that in his spare time his favorite activity is spending time with his wife and three children.

A nominator said: “If I could invest in a young ophthalmologist that I anticipate will do amazing things during his career, Almeida is that type of individual. I first met him when he was in his fellowship, and I was amazed by his brilliance and his talent as a researcher. He’s since launched his own website, and earlier this year he published his first book, ‘Decision Diagnosis – Seven Antidotes to Decision Procrastination,’ which has already made me rethink how I make clinical decisions. I believe David is a perfect fit as a rising star within ophthalmology.”
