Biography :

Ted Christakis pursued his undergraduate education in Computational Chemistry at Yale University and completed his medical school at the University of Toronto. He finished his residency in the Department of Ophthalmology, and was recognized with the Woywitka Cup for the highest resident standing over 5 years. He is currently practicing as a general ophthalmologist in Toronto.

Ted has an interest in preventive medicine and local community involvement. In 2005, he climbed Mt. Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro with his brother Panos to raise HIV awareness and funding for a local AIDS hospice in New Haven, CT. In 2007 he co-founded Kids2See, an initiative that for the past 10 years has provided vision screening in at-risk Toronto schools to identify children with amblyopia.

He continues to be involved in Kids2See, training medical students to perform screening examinations. Despite specializing in ophthalmology, Ted also tries to maintain a breadth of medical knowledge. He has a passion for wilderness medicine, and has attended several educational conferences on the subject. He traveled to Nepal in 2011 where he received training in expedition medicine, vertical extraction and rope-work, and had the opportunity to participate in high altitude rescue exercises from Mt. Everest Base Camp.
