Elliot Davidoff standing posedDr. Davidoff is a long-time supporter of the OSU Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences. He began participating in the department in the 1970’s and received a faculty appointment in 1980. In 2023, he pledged $100,000 to establish the “Elliot and Marjorie Davidoff Lectureship Fund in Ophthalmology.” The annual distribution from this fund will support a lectureship as part of the annual Retina Case Forum. This forum is designed to provide ophthalmologists with updates on advancements in diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases.

Dr. Elliot Davidoff, a practitioner in Newark, Ohio, has dedicated to serve patients in this region since 1977. He is originally from New York City, where he graduated from Stuyvesant High School at the age of 16 years old. His pursuit of knowledge led him to earn a bachelor's degree at the University of Rhode Island, followed by a Doctor of Medicine degree from New York Medical College in 1971.

After finishing his degree, Dr. Davidoff started an internship at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. He then spent two years in the US Public Health Service, achieving the esteemed rank of Lieutenant Commander. His journey continued with an ophthalmology residency at the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. After relocating to Ohio, he joined a private practice before establishing his own in 1980, which has now grown into the Center for Sight.

Beyond his professional accomplishments, Dr. Davidoff shares a fulfilling life with his wife Marjorie. They are proud parents to twin sons and loving grandparents to four grandchildren.
