**Dr. Constance Okeke received her undergraduate and medical degrees from Yale and trained in ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins. She completed her glaucoma fellowship training as a Heed Research Fellow at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute of University of Miami. She became a clinician scientist under a National Institute of Health K12 grant at the Scheie Eye Institute of University of Pennsylvania, where she also earned a Master of Science degree in clinical epidemiology. She has practiced ophthalmology with a specialty in glaucoma and cataract surgery since 2001.

Dr. Okeke single-handedly pioneered micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) at Virginia Eye Consultants in the southern Virginia Hampton Roads region. In 2009, she was the first in the area to perform Trabectome surgery and was the first in the country to combine this advanced technology in glaucoma with the femtosecond laser, allowing the surgery to be performed without a blade.

**Opthamologist Dr. Leslie Jones-Dr. Jones is an associate professor in the College of Medicine and serves as the residency program director and director of Glaucoma Services in the department. Dr. Jones completed her medical degree in 1996 and ophthalmology residency in 2000 at Howard University and Howard University Hospital, followed by a fellowship in glaucoma at Wills Eye Hospital, the country’s oldest eye hospital located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

Dr. Jones is the recipient of the American Glaucoma Society Clinician Scientist Award 2005. Her research focuses on the genetic epidemiology of glaucoma, the evaluation of current and innovative glaucoma medical and surgical therapies, and use of on-line simulation as an adjunct to traditional ophthalmic clinical skills training.
