ABCD History
 

Dr. Robert Arnold moved January 1, 2014 from Ophthalmic Associates to join the other two Alaskan pediatric ophthalmologists, Robin Grendahl and Kevin Winkle at "Alaska Children's Eye and Strabismus" located at 3500 Latouche #280, Anchorage, Ak 99508. (907)561-1917 and fax (907)563-5373.

Dr. Robert Arnold is a pediatric ophthalmologist who practiced with Ophthalmic Associates in Anchorage from 1989 through 2013. He originally moved from Bellingham, Washington to Alaska in 1976 to commercial fish and attend the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. After medical school at Yale and an ophthalmology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, he did one additional fellowship training year in Pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus at Indiana University under Drs. Eugene Helveston, Daryel Ellis and David Plager. Dr. Arnold is certified with the American Board of Ophthalmology since 1990. Dr. Arnold has surgical privileges at Providence, Alaska Regional and Alaska Native Hospitals, SCoA, Alaska Surgery Center and has satellite clinics in Wasilla, Kodiak and North Pole.

Dr. Arnold has encouraged the use of the "Enhanced Bruckner Test" for primary care pediatric detection of serious vision problems in children. In 1995, Dr. Arnold purchased 2 MTI photoscreeners designed by his Redmond, Washington colleague, Howard Freedman. The Alaska Blind Child Discovery became a concerted effort coordinated with Diane Armitage to provide valid image interpretation and parental notification for volunteer charitable screening in urban and rural Alaska.

Dr. Arnold served (2003-6) as the Chairman of the Vision Screening Committee for the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) and is an investigator for the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG). Dr. Arnold brings pediatric and adult eye care to oppressed ethnic groups in Burma.
