Name of creator
The first complete year of operation for the Department of Opthamology was 1956. While undergraduate teaching plays a relatively minor role, postgraduate instruction, service to the community (both patient and doctor), and research have figured strongly in the development of the Department. In addition to refresher courses and clinics, faculty are involved with the Orthoptic Clinic, Low Vision Clinic, Glaucoma Clinic, a pathology service, and a northern Saskatchewan eye examination program. In research the department is probably best known for its work on glaucoma. Its primary emphasis has always been the improvement of eye care in Saskatchewan. The following have served as department head: R.G. Murray (1955-1974); C.C. Ewing (1974-1980); R.J. Schneider (1980-1985); I.A. Chisolm (Acting 1985-1986); C.C. Ewing (Acting 1986-1989); H.L. Goldberg (1989-1992); K.G. Romanchuk (1992 ).
