Richard Soden,O.D., vice president for Clinical Affairs at the State University of New York (SUNY) State College of Optometry, announced the appointment of Dr. Joseph Stamm as the new chief of Advanced Care/Ocular Disease effective December 2011.

“The University Eye Center has been reorganizing its patient care delivery system to better serve its patients and to anticipate changes with health care reform. As chief of Advanced Care/Ocular Disease, Dr. Stamm will provide the leadership needed to achieve these changes within this service. This appointment completes the reorganization of our clinical services into three distinct areas: adult and pediatric primary eye care, advanced care/ocular disease, and vision rehabilitation,” said Dr. Soden.

Dr. Stamm received a Bachelor’s degree from Harpur College in 1978 and a Doctor of Optometry degree from SUNY State College of Optometry in 1982.

After spending 19 years in private practice with a specialty in contact lens care in Rochester, N.Y., he joined the faculty of the University of Rochester Medical Center.

For the past 10 years, Dr. Stamm staffed the Department of Ophthalmology’s refractive surgical center and was actively involved in the education of the University’s medical students, ophthalmology residents and corneal fellows.

Dr. Stamm became the first Clinical Refractive Technologies Diplomate in the American Academy of Optometry’s section on Cornea, Contact Lenses and Refractive Technologies.
