A prestigious award for Dr. Bruce Nichols

The Ivey Eye Institute is world-renowned for being a leader in eye care with a very distinguished history of service. Over the years the American Academy of Ophthalmology has recognized the outstanding contributions of the Ivey Eye Institute and its surgeons, and now Dr. Bruce Nichols has added a new accolade to the team’s repertoire. 

The Senior Achievement Award honours an ophthalmologist for his or her years of dedication and service to the academy, its scientific and educational programs and to the specialty of ophthalmology as a whole.

Dr. Nichols has been named a recipient of this prestigious award for his contributions in laser refractive eye surgery, astigmatism surgery, and cataract surgical techniques. Dr. Nichols is the first eye surgeon from St. Joseph’s Ivey Eye Institute to receive the Senior Achievement Award, and one of only two Canadians honoured this year.

Congratulations to Dr. Nichols for this outstanding achievement and for continuing the long tradition of excellence in eye care.
