My name is Henry Gelender, and I am an ophthalmologist with Cornea Associates of Texas. I grew up in Pasadena, California and went to college at UCLA. I went to medical school in Chicago at the Chicago Medical School. I completed an internal medicine internship in New York City at Beth Israel Medical Center. I completed my ophthalmology training at the Washington Eye Center in Washington DC, and then completed a cornea fellowship in Miami at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute which is part of the University Of Miami School Of Medicine. Upon completing my fellowship, I stayed on the faculty at the University of Miami and was a professor of Ophthalmology for six years. In 1983, I moved to Dallas and helped found Cornea Associates of Texas and I have been in practice in Dallas since then. I am a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and many organizations in Dallas and Texas as well. I am involved in the International Refractive Surgery Society and The Cornea Society and frequently lecture on subjects relating to the cornea. I participate in national organizations and I am an examiner for the American Board of Ophthalmology. I am also an honor award recipient from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. During my training, I also spent six months in Barbados working at hospital doing eye surgery and training some of the doctors there. After, since I have been in practice, I have also participated in several international ophthalmology projects. I have gone to Honduras and worked with local physicians teaching them about corneal surgery and recently I participated in ORBIS international, which is a non-profit organization that sponsors physicians to go abroad and bring modern eye technology to remote portions of the world. I have had the pleasure of going to China as part of that organization. In my practice, I specialized in corneal surgery and the treatment of the cornea, which involves corneal surgery, treatment of corneal diseases, and cataract surgery, refractive surgery, problems that affect the front part of the eye. It’s very rewarding to help patients. People come in quite fearful with the problems that affect their vision and losing site is quite a traumatic experience for most people and with only to help them with their problem and restore their sight and bring that back to function is very gratifying.
