William F. Hoyt MD
  • Professor Emeritus                               
UCSF Neurological Surgery faculty since 1958
 
As a UCSF faculty member since 1958, Dr. Hoyt has developed a world- renowned unit in the field of neuro-ophthalmology at UCSF. He was among the first west coast ophthalmologists to investigate visual problems in neurologic disease, and is recognized as a scholar, a teacher, and a neuro-ophthalmologic consultant. Dr. Hoyt worked closely with Frank Walsh, MD, founder of the specialty of neuro-ophthalmology, and was co-author, with Dr. Walsh, of a three-volume compendium, Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology. He has authored nearly 300 scientific papers and The Ocular Fundus in Neurologic Disease.
 
Dr. Hoyt has probably trained more neuro-ophthalmology specialists than anyone else in the world, and many of his former students hold important positions throughout the U.S., Latin America, Europe and Asia. His students include Neil Miller, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology at the Johns Hopkins University, and current editor of Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology; Michael Sanders, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology in Queen Square, London; Lars Frisén, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology at Gothenberg, Sweden; Guntram Kommerell, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology in Freiberg, Germany; and Rafael Muci-Mendoza, MD, Professor of Medicine in Caracas, Venezuela.
