Stephen H. Sinclair, MD
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvnaia in biochemistry, and attending Cambridge University, England as a Thouron Scholar in biophysics, he graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1973, followed by ophthalmology training at Massachusettes Eye and Ear Infirmary and a fellowship in vitreoretinal diseases at the University of Wisconsin. He then practiced in full time academic vitreoretinal surgery for 20 years, first at Univ. of Penn and then at Drexel-Hahnemann Medical School where he developed the Department of Ophthalmollgy as Professor and Chairman.
Between 1998 and 2019, he continued in private practice as a vitreoretinal surgeon and served as Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at the Drexel-Hahnemann School of Medicine and as Adjunct Professor at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Salus University. Dr. Sinclair has taught ophthalmic surgeons around the world through Project Orbis and teaches multiple surgical specialties regarding the enhancement of their vision during all manner of surgical procedures, having developed the first surgical simulator.
In ophthalmology. his research continues in the development of many digital devices among which are the laser doppler measurement of retinal blood flow, the measurement of real world functional visual fields, and the development of ophthalmic image management and annotation systems to transport, view and compare images from multiple ophthalmic imaging and vision testing devices acquired for a patient over time with the intent to enhance AI digital outcomes for ocular imaging.
Currently he is working on the development of hyperspectral imaging for examining mucosal inflammation and omfluorescent marking of retinal neuron apoptotic injury. Dr. Sinclair has received Honor and Senior Achievement Awards from the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retinal Specialists and has published more than 100 original scientific papers and holds nearly a dozen device and drug patents.
