BRADENTON – The Eye Associates is proud to congratulate Cathleen McCabe, MD, for her recent appointment to 2 committees by the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Board of Trustees. Dr. McCabe will serve on the Practicing Ophthalmologists Curriculum Panel (POCP) - Cataract and Anterior Segment Panel as a subcommittee member; and as a member of the Eyenet Editorial Advisory Board. Committees are tasked with furthering the goals and objectives of the Academy, whose mission is to advance the lifelong learning and professional interests of ophthalmologists, ensuring that the public can obtain the best possible eye care. Committee members are chosen for their expertise and leadership capabilities, and are appointed to serve terms of 1 year.


“The Academy searches for individuals that have outstanding skills, knowledge and experience,” said John Swencki, CEO of The Eye Associates. “Dr. McCabe has all those qualities as well as a reputation for excellence with both peers and patients. We’re fortunate to have her on our surgical team.”
