The Surgical Retina Service of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences operates at both the Hong Kong Eye Hospital and the Prince of Wales Hospital, the teaching hospital of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Our 4 Surgical Retina Subspecialty Clinics serve the populations living in Kowloon and the eastern region of the New Territories in Hong Kong, and are well attended by over 350 patients each week. Surgical Retina Fellows of the CUHK-HKEH-PWH International Ophthalmology Fellowship Programme will actively participate in all clinical services and various research projects. During the Fellowship, each Fellow should aim to be the Principal Investigator of at least 1 surgical retina research project at CUHK. At the conclusion of the Fellowship, each Fellow should be confident in the diagnosis and treatment of common surgical retina diseases, and should have at least 1 publication as first author arising from research done during his / her CUHK Fellowship.
