PINE BROOK, N.J., Nov. 30 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Alberto Gonzalez Garcia, M.D. has joined Diopsys, Inc. as its new Research Director. Dr. Gonzalez will head all scientific research for new product development and enhancement projects, including clinical studies. His extensive experience in neuro-ophthalmology and glaucoma research will give the Diopsys scientific and engineering teams a valuable resource for developing the most advanced, patient-friendly vision testing equipment available.

"I've been involved in medical research since the beginning of my career, and one of my main interests is how technology can move medicine forward to help as many people as possible," Dr. Gonzalez says. "I'm excited to bring both my passions research and technology to help Diopsys advance the science of vision testing."

Dr. Gonzalez received his medical training at Finlay-Albarran in Havana, Cuba. He completed fellowships in Neuro-Ophthalmology at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Cuba, and in Glaucoma at the Hamilton Glaucoma Center at the University of California San Diego. He was Chief of the Neuro-Ophthalmology Department at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery and a clinician and surgeon at the National Institute of Ophthalmology in Cuba.
