Congratulations to Richard Parrish

Congratulations to RICHARD K. PARRISH, II, M.D., a dedicated scientist, educator, and world-renowned glaucoma specialist, for being inducted into the Academia Ophthalmologica Internationalis (AOI), the prestigious organization consisting of the world’s top academic ophthalmologists. Induction into the AOI is one of the highest honors in the field of ophthalmology as the AOI limits active membership to only 70 members worldwide. Parrish is the editor in chief of the American Journal of Ophthalmology and his enviable academic career includes more than 100 peer-reviewed original scientific publications and many more chapters and abstracts. He served as the project chairman of the National Eye Institute’s Fluorouracil Filtering Surgery Study, the first multicenter randomized clinical trial in glaucoma surgery in the US.
