“I went into ophthalmology because I think it’s the perfect field to combine surgical disease management in a high-technology outpatient setting with long-term patient care relationships. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
After finishing his glaucoma fellowship at the Wills Eye Hospital in 2008, Dr. Fudemberg joined the faculty of Wills Eye. He has since practiced as a specialist focused on medical and surgical care of high-risk glaucoma. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania and attended medical school at St. Louis University, where he graduated with Distinction in Research. He served as an ophthalmology resident at the University of Kansas and was appointed co-chief resident. He won the Alan W. Riley Award as resident of the year.
Dr. Fudemberg has authored numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks and presented work at international meetings. He was an editor of the Yearbook of Ophthalmology’s glaucoma section and was a reviewer for major ophthalmology journals. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, College of Physicians of Philadelphia, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology.
“In his free time, Dr. Fudemberg enjoys spending time with his children, Jack and Sloan, as well as his black lab, Hank.”
