Geoffrey H. Basson, MD, is an Attending Physician in neuro-ophthalmology and Assistant Professor, Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and Neurology at Montefiore-Einstein. Dr. Basson’s clinical specialty is neuro-ophthalmology—the diagnosis and management of visual disorders due to neurological or neuromuscular causes.
After earning his Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College in 1960, Dr. Basson attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, earning his Doctor of Medicine in 1965. His postdoctoral training began at Duke University Hospital, with an internship in internal medicine and a first-year residency in neurology. His medical training was interrupted by military service, following which he came to Montefiore Medical Center, completing a residency in neurology in 1971 and a residency in ophthalmology in 1978. Dr. Basson is board-certified in both specialties and is a senior fellow of the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society.
Dr. Basson’s practice focuses on diagnosis and treatment of those central nervous system and neuromuscular disorders which produce disturbances of vision.
