Dr Shingleton was an Honored Guest Lecturer at
the All India Ophthalmology Society Meeting in Indore, India February 12-15,
2019. Thousands of ophthalmologists from around the world attended the
meeting and Dr Shingleton lectured on the topic "Cataract Surgery in the
Setting of Pseudoexfoliation".
Dr Shingleton also visited the Chennai,
Pondicherry, Tiruneveli and Madurai sites of the Aravind Eye Care System and
gave Grand Round presentations on cataract and glaucoma surgery. The
Aravind Eye Care teams provided care to over 4.5 million patients in 2018 and
performed over 500,000 surgical procedures. Dr Shingleton and the Aravind
ophthalmologists have had a close relationship for over 35 years and doctors
from Aravind Eye Care System come frequently to the US to observe Dr Shingleton
in surgery. Our OCB glaucoma fellows also have the option to spend a
month at the Aravind Tiruneveli facility each year.
Dr. Shingleton lived in Madras, India in 1961
when his father worked at the Guindy College of Engineering. He attended
the Madras Christian College School and has many fond memories from his year
spent in India. He returned to India in 1981 to perform surgery at the
Aravind Eye Clinic in Madurai.
