Chicago-Jason T. Halverson, MD, of the Albert Florens Storm Eye Institute at the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, was named the winner of the third annual Ophthalmology Times Resident Writer's Award Program. The program was sponsored by Advanced Medical Optics (AMO). In a presentation at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in October, Dr. Halverson was the first-place winner for a case study report of traumatic mydriasis that was managed by cerclage pupilloplasty to reduce pupillary aperture.
The awards program is designed to encourage excellence in writing and presentation skills among residents.
The entries were judged by a review board panel that included Mark Packer, MD, Joshua Stein, MD (last year's winner), and Daniel Chang, MD (the 2003 winner).
