Dr. Stuart L. Fine is world renowned for his leadership in ophthalmology education, research and patient care. A pioneering investigator, Dr. Fine helped shape the field of retina through his leadership of numerous National Eye Institute (NEI)-supported, multi-centered clinical trials to evaluate new and existing treatments for retinal disease. Among the many pivotal trials he chaired are the Macular Photocoagulation Study and the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study. He also vice chaired the NEI-sponsored Comparison of Age-related Macular Degeneration Treatment Trials (CATT).
