Upneet Bains, MD, has been named the 2016-2017 Ruthanne and Richard Simmons Glaucoma Fellow in the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology. This annual award was established in 2011 in recognition of two glaucoma physicians who were Harvard Ophthalmology graduates: the late Dr. Ruthanne Simmons and her father Dr. Richard Simmons, a generous supporter of Mass. Eye and Ear and the Ophthalmology educational program. This award honors a legacy of academic excellence by providing funding to a glaucoma fellow at Harvard Ophthalmology. In addition to her clinical and teaching responsibilities, Dr. Bains is interested in providing cataract and glaucoma treatment to underserved populations both nationally and internationally.
