International Guest Speakers

Dr. Ferenc Kuhn, MD, PhD

Dr. Sean B. Murphy Lecturer

Ferenc Kuhn, M.D., Ph.D., graduated “summa cum laude” from the University of Pécs in 1977, and became board certified in ophthalmology in 1981. He trained at several institutions throughout Europe and the US. He was elected to be Executive Vice President of the International Society of Ocular Trauma in 2000 and has been its President since January 2012. He was elected President of the American Society of Ocular Trauma in 2002. He received his PhD degree in 1999.

In addition to specializing in the management of vitreoretinal diseases, Dr. Kuhn’s main interest has been the epidemiology and treatment of ocular trauma; he played a key role in the development of the United States Eye Injury Registry that has served as a model for similar surveillance systems in 25 countries.

Dr. Kuhn was the principal investigator of a half-a-million-dollar grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop an Ocular Trauma Score, which, for the first time, helps the ophthalmologist predict the likely visual outcome of the injured eye. He has been the recipient of several other grants and numerous awards from societies such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retina Specialists. He travels intensively and has performed live surgery in 17 countries.
