The Retina Group of Washington
Wills Eye Hospital, Philadelphia, PA
Dr. Peck became a Surgical Vitreoretinal Fellow at The Retina Group of Washington in July 2021, immediately following his tenure as Chief Resident at the prestigious Wills Eye Hospital residency program in Philadelphia, PA.
Dr. Peck stayed in his native Delaware for college, where he graduated from the University of Delaware medical scholars program with minors in chemistry and biochemistry. He earned his medical degree at the University of Virginia where he earned the top score in his class in multiple courses and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor medical society, an award given to only 15% of his classmates. He then completed a transitional year internship at Reading Hospital in Reading, PA.
Dr. Peck has completed extensive medical research throughout his training, having already published greater than 20 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. He was recently one of the two editors for the latest edition of the Wills Eye Manual, the best-selling textbook in ophthalmology. He has presented his research results at symposia and meetings of international and national medical associations, such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and Retina Society. His work has been featured in many of the world’s top journals, including JAMA, Ophthalmology, Current Opinion in Ophthalmology, and Journal of Vitreoretinal Diseases. He continues to be active in research since joining the Retina Group of Washington, and his current research projects include an analysis on predictors of visual acuity in epiretinal membranes, response to brolucizumab in patients with macular degeneration, and vitreous hemorrhage associated with retinal tears with bridging vessels.
Dr. Peck is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retina Specialists. He has an interest in education and has served as a tutor, teacher, and test resource creator for high school, college, medical students and residents. He has enjoyed volunteering time to perform free eye exams for underprivileged children, and to participate in low vision screenings in homeless shelters and nursing homes.
