Mid Florida Eye Center is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Shawn C. Wilker, a nationally renowned board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist and retina specialist.
Dr. Wilker joins Dr. Ray D. Maizel, Lake County’s first retina specialist and a leader in the science and technology of retinal care. Together, the two doctors constitute the center’s Retina Institute, a practice focused on the diagnosis and treatment of vitreo-retinal and macular diseases.
Like Dr. Maizel, Dr. Wilker has dedicated a significant amount of his practice to research. His participation in numerous high-profile clinical research trials has led to advances in the field—and new treatments for his patients. “With the partnership of Dr. Wilker and Dr. Maizel, two renowned researchers, our Retina Institute is poised to do amazing things,” said Dr. Jeffrey D. Baumann, Mid Florida Eye Center’s co-founder and one of the practice’s cataract specialists. “Best of all, it translates to new treatment options—and new possibilities—for our patients.”
Dr. Wilker completed his undergraduate training at Stetson University and received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University. He completed an internship in internal medicine at University of Florida and went on to serve his residency at Case Western Reserve University. His varied accomplishments include a Fellowship in Medical and Surgical Retina at The Wilmer Ophthalmologic Institute at Johns Hopkins University. He has served as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University since 2009.
Both Dr. Maizel and Dr. Wilker will be available to perform advanced vitreoretinal surgery at Mid Florida Eye Center’s Surgery Center of the Villages, giving their patients the opportunity to undergo this procedure in a convenient, comfortable outpatient setting. The two doctors are also available to administer leading-edge treatments for macular degeneration.
