NOW PLAYING: Herbert J. Nevyas, M.D.


HERBERT J. NEVYAS, M.D.: I’m Dr. Herbert Nevyas, the founding partner of Nevyas Eye Associates. I’ve been practicing ophthalmology since 1964. I’m a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and of the Medical School of the University of Pennsylvania, where I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and where I received the Oliver Memorial Prize in Ophthalmology. I then trained at the Institute of Ophthalmology, the University of London for a year, and then came back to Philadelphia and spent three years under Dr. Harold Shea [phonetic] at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in residency.

I enjoy very much fine work. I enjoy innovation, and I like gadgets. And I guess that’s what introduced me to ophthalmology, that I found there were more gadgets there than in any other area. And I am a bit of a gadgeteer. My hobby is invention. I have invented many different instruments and many different techniques which are used all over the world. I have about a dozen patents in ophthalmic instrumentation, and this has been a side interest which has meshed very nicely with my practice of ophthalmology.

I enjoy teaching and I have taught medical students and residents at the University of Pennsylvania for many years. For ten years, I was Chief of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. And I do enjoy teaching today, particularly at medical meetings, lecturing on innovations in ophthalmology.
