News Oct 12, 2017 East York Mirror

Dr. John Fowler has been awarded the Eye Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario’s (EPSO’s) Excellence for Educational Leadership in Ophthalmology Award, in recognition of his distinguished career in the specialty of ophthalmology.

The ceremony took place on Sept. 27 at Queen’s Park, where Fowler was surrounded by peers and members of provincial parliament.

“Dr. Fowler has probably taught the majority of ophthalmologists currently practising in Ontario. His contributions to the field of ophthalmology are tremendous and impossible to measure,” said Dr. Jordan Cheskes, EPSO chairperson and a physician with the Scarborough and Rouge Hospital.

“We are proud to present Dr. Fowler with the 2017 EPSO Excellence for Educational Leadership in Ophthalmology Award. We could not think of a more deserving recipient.”

Fowler was born and raised in Toronto, graduating from the University of Toronto’s medical school in 1958. He went on to work in general practice at Toronto’s East General and Orthopedic Hospital.

Dr. Fowler has skilfully taught at the University of Toronto for almost 50 years. He has been on staff at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre, the Toronto East General (now called the Michael Garron Hospital) and Bridgepoint Rehabilitation Hospital.

Dr. Fowler is best recognized in Ontario for his commitment to teaching ophthalmology to residents, medical students, nurses and family doctors. He is the founder of the long-running conference Primary Eye Care Day that empowers primary care providers to learn about general ophthalmology in order to assist their patients across Ontario.

Scarborough-Agincourt MPP Soo Wong, who had worked with him as a nurse, introduced Dr. Fowler at a Queen’s Park reception and described his achievements to her fellow MPPs.

The ESPO, a section of the Ontario Medical Association, represents more than 450 of Ontario’s ophthalmologists.
