Welcome New Faculty: Florence Cabot
FLORENCE CABOT, M.D., is a cornea specialist who joins the faculty as an assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology. She received her medical degree from the Université Paul Sabatier followed by a residency in ophthalmology at the Université Antilles-Guyane, both in France. Prior to the completion of her fellowship in cornea and external diseases at Bascom Palmer, Cabot served as a senior research associate at Bascom Palmer’s Ophthalmic Biophysics Center where she worked extensively on imaging accommodation using optical coherence tomography, presbyopia treatment, and the development of a remote-controlled robotized slit lamp to facilitate eye care in underserved areas. In 2019, she was selected as the Emerging Vision Scientist in the state of Florida and was invited to Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, to advocate for eye research. In addition to her continuous dedication to ophthalmic research, Cabot is available for consultation on cornea, cataract, and refractive surgery at Bascom Palmer in Miami.
