Dr. Kiss’s training began in New York City where he received his undergraduate degree with honors from Columbia College and medical school training at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons.

At Harvard, Dr. Kiss was select by the faculty to serve as the Chief Retina Fellow. Dr. Kiss was then recruited back to New York City to join the vitreoretinal faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College and assume the role of Director of Clinical Research in the Department of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Kiss's clinical interests include complex vitreoretinal surgery and treatment of age‐related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. His clinical and translational research focuses on four broad areas: retinal imaging, ocular gene therapy, novel therapeutic targets for ocular neovascularization, and genetic markers for retinal diseases.
