    Collapse Overview
    Jonathan C. Horton MD PhD specializes in neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, strabismus, and the treatment of double vision. He earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School, where he also received a PhD in neurobiology in the laboratory of Nobel prize winners David Hubel and Torsten Wiesel. He did a medical internship and a year of neurology residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital, followed by ophthalmology residency at Georgetown University. Horton completed fellowships in neuro-ophthalmology and pediatric ophthalmology at the University of California, San Francisco. He is now professor of ophthalmology, neurology and physiology, and member of the Program in Neuroscience. His NIH-supported laboratory is focused on the neural basis of visual perception, amblyopia, strabismus, eye movements, and disorders of binocular vision.
