David A. DiLoreto, Jr., M.D., PhD., is a retinal specialist. He was fellowship trained in medical and surgical retina at the Wilmer Ophthalmological Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, serving in both the Retinal Vasculature Center and the Vitreo-Retinal Service. 

In addition to his clinical work, DiLoreto has a keen interest in clinical research, providing patients with access to the latest therapies through clinical trials. This includes a history of participation in national trials through the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research Network, as well as industry-sponsored studies. 

He has received numerous awards, most recently the Knapp Fellowship from the Herman Knapp Testimonial Fund, the Ronald G. Michels Fellowship Foundation Award, and the Heed Fellowship from the Heed Ophthalmic Foundation. 

He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and his research has been published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology.

We at the Ross Eye Institute have been saddened by recent events surrounding race and inequality, but buoyed by the opportunity for lasting change. As healthcare providers, we are in a unique position to lead by example, and to further the goals of diversity and inclusion among our patients, students, and staff. We recognize there are systemic impediments to equal care for all, but we continue to be committed to the provision of excellent healthcare to all patients regardless of race or insurance status. We are proud of our efforts to provide equal access to eye care for all.

Today we renew our commitment to the Buffalo and the Western New York community, and we will continue to treat everyone as equals.​
