New Fellows Welcomed to CODET Vision Institute

The ophthalmologists begin their training in different specialties such as Retina, Anterior Segment, Oculoplastics, Glaucoma, Cornea, and Pediatric Ophthalmology.

CODET Vision Institute, one of the leading institutions in the field of ophthalmology and the academic training of new ophthalmologists, has welcomed the current generation of fellows into our prestigious Fellowship Program.

Dr. Arturo Chayet, founder of CODET Vision Institute, introduced this medical Fellowship Program in 1994. Since then, the program has trained over 100 ophthalmologists from Mexico, Latin America, the United States, and other parts of the world, who undergo one or two years of training at CODET to obtain a subspecialty degree.

Currently, CODET has 14 fellows, with 9 newly admitted ophthalmologists who join various specialties such as Retina and Vitreous, Anterior Segment, Oculoplastics, Glaucoma and Cornea, Pediatric Ophthalmology, and Strabismus.
