About Us


At the Havener Eye Institute, we are dedicated to education. The lectureship series called EyeRounds provides complimentary Continuing Medical Education (CME) covering a variety of topics. We hope that the success of EyeRounds will continue to foster the community spirit that is an important part of the Havener Eye Institute’s mission.

The Jacob Moses Lectureship was established to commemorate the contributions and accomplishments of a clinical professor in ophthalmology who provided care for innumerable patients and educated numerous people over his 58 years in practice. Jacob Moses started his career in Columbus, OH in 1045 bringing many innovations to central Ohio. He was a great family man, a pillar of the medical community, and a person that from a very early time, contributed substantially to the development of the Ophthalmology Program at The Ohio State University.

This lectureship is intended to promote the clinical education of ophthalmology for established ophthalmologists and students as well as others devoted to the professions of eye care.
