Biography

Dr. Blinder completed medical school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City six-year medical program. He completed a residency at the University of Missouri-Columbia and his vitreo-retinal training at the LSU Eye Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. He returned to the University of Missouri-Columbia to become director of the retina service for four years. He then directed the retina service at the University of Tennessee. In 1999 Dr. Blinder returned to his home town of St. Louis, Missouri to join the Retina Institute and is Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at Washington University School of Medicine.
Dr. Blinder has published over 100 articles in ophthalmologic peer-reviewed journals, along with five book chapters. He has presented at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Retina Specialist, the Retina Society, the Macula Society and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. He has also lectured on various topics at numerous meetings both inside and outside the United States.
Dr. Blinder has received numerous awards, including the Vitreous Society Honor Award, the American Academy of Ophthalmology Achievement Award and Senior Achievement Award, the National Marfan Foundation Heartworks, Hero with a Heart award, and the American Society of Retina Specialists Service award. He has been or is currently an investigator in 30 clinical trials dealing with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, uveitis and AIDS. He serves as a reviewer for Jama Ophthalmology (formally Archives of Ophthalmology), British Journal of Ophthalmology, Ophthalmic Surgery and Lasers, Journal of Retinal and Vitreous Diseases, American Journal of Ophthalmology, Eye, Expert Review of Ophthalmology, Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology, Ophthalmology, and others. He has severed on numerous boards and committees and is a past president of the St. Louis Ophthalmological Society and the American Diabetes Association. Dr. Blinder is a member of the Retina Society, American Society of Retina Specialists, and the Macula Society.
