    Angela N. Buffenn, MD, MPH, is director of the Orbit and Eye Movement Institute in the Vision Center at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. In addition, Dr. Buffenn is director of the Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Fellowship Program at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, where she is an assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology.

    Dr. Buffenn earned her Medical Degree and Masters of Public Health Degree from the University of Michigan. She completed her residency at the University of Maryland and her fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus at the Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute, Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Buffenn’s research priorities include exam techniques for detecting ocular disease in infants and children, amblyopia, and various forms of strabismus. One type of strabismus Dr. Buffenn has been investigating currently is the management of intermittent exotropia, a form of strabismus in which the eyes deviate out. Dr. Buffenn has also been the principal investigator for a study addressing the detection of ocular disease in infants and children, a collaborative effort with pediatricians at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles funded by Knights Templar Eye Foundation, Inc. and the Pearle Vision Foundation.

    On a national level, Dr. Buffenn has served as an editorial board member of the Journal of AAPOS, a publication of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. She has also served as chair of the Ophthalmic Technology Assessment Committee (OTAC) Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Panel, which is a division of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO).
