Glenn L. Wing M.D., F.A.C.S (retired)
BOARD CERTIFIED OPHTHALMOLOGIST AND RETINA-VITREOUS SPECIALIST
Retina Specialists are different. Ophthalmology, like other medical practices, includes numerous sub-specialties. Some ophthalmologists specialize in the removal of cataracts, others in cosmetic/functional enhancements known as ocular plastic surgery. Additionally, ophthalmologists may prescribe glasses or perform laser surgery to correct near or far sightedness. All of the physicians of Retina Consultants of Southwest Florida have received advanced “Fellowship” training and focus on the diagnosis, treatment, surgery, and research of the diseases that impact the health of the retina and vitreous.
Dr. Wing completed his retina and vitreous medical and surgical training at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. He joined Dr. Walker at Retina Consultants of Southwest Florida in 1982. He was named the Medical Director of National Ophthalmic Research Institute in 2003 and is internationally known as one of the best clinical researchers in the field. He has been the principal investigator in dozens of pivotal clinical trials that have led to FDA approval of new therapies to fight retina or vitreous diseases.
He has served as an Adjunct Assistant Clinical Scientist for the Schepens Eye Research Institute affiliated with Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.
He is honored as a Best Doctor and a Castle Connolly Top Doctor every year. He has authored numerous articles and abstracts that have been presented at regional, national, and international conventions and has been published in respected medical journals such as Ophthalmology, the Annals of Ophthalmology, and the American Journal of Ophthalmology.
He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (F.A.C.S.) and a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He is currently a member of the multiple organizations including the American Society of Retina Specialists, the American Diabetes Association, the American Medical Association, the Florida Medical Association, the Lee County Medical Society, the Collier County Medical Society, the Charlotte County Medical Society, and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
