Bio John Hetherington, MD has influenced patient care and research in glaucoma for nearly 50 years, and is still going strong. Widely regarded for his creative approach to treating disease - or dis-ease as he calls it - Dr. Hetherington has a distinguished academic career in addition to his clinical practice. His research accomplishments are extensive and impressive. He was an early investigator into the childhood glaucomas, coinvestigator on the 20-year Collaborative Glaucoma Detection Study, one of the first to evaluate automated perimeters, narrow-angle glaucoma, low-tension glaucoma, and ICE syndrome, as well as teach a systematic approach to the differential diagnosis of adult glaucomas. Dr. Hetherington has studied numerous drugs and delivery systems in their experimental stage, shaping the way glaucoma is treated today. Likewise, his research linking early visual field loss and nerve fiber bundle (optic nerve), optic vessel, and optic disc defects are foundations from which diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma is still viewed. He also has studied the effects of anesthesia on the intraocular pressure (IOP) in infants, and more recently has examined alternative healing practices effects on IOP. He is coauthor of the 4th & 5th editions of Becker-Shaffer’s Diagnosis and Therapy of the Glaucomas and over 50 other academic publications. Dr. Hetherington has lectured extensively on glaucoma throughout the world. Born in New Jersey, he earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia and completed his ophthalmic training at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). He completed his glaucoma fellowship at UCSF in 1962 under glaucoma pioneer Dr. Robert N. Shaffer, whose private practice he joined in 1966. Dr. Hetherington has been a clinical professor at UCSF since 1979.
