Posted by: West Georgia Eye Care Center in Frontpage Article on September 18, 2015

Last week, we highlighted Flinders Centre for Ophthalmology, Eye, and Medical Research in Australia, where Dr. James Brooks, practice president and corneal disease specialist, received training.

Today, we’ll look at one of the training locales of Dr. Cynthia P. Nix (also a corneal disease specialist)–the internationally-acclaimed, prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida. Dr. Nix completed three years of ophthalmology residency training and a one-year cornea fellowship at Bascom Palmer, the #1 ranked ophthalmology program in the nation.
