Dr. Thomas Connor earned his bachelor's degree from Haverford College in Pennsylvania and his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After completing a medical internship at Beth Israel Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston, Dr. Connor returned to Baltimore to complete his ophthalmology residency at the Wilmer Eye Institute of the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He came to Milwaukee and the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) for a fellowship in medical and surgical diseases of the retina and vitreous. Following completion of his fellowship, he returned to the Wilmer Eye Institute/Johns Hopkins Hospital to serve as assistant chief of service/director of ocular trauma service. He was pleased to return to the MCW Eye Institute and the department of ophthalmology in 1994 and has been here since, currently serving as professor of ophthalmology and director of the Vitreoretinal Fellowship Program. He enjoys his role in academic ophthalmology with a busy clinical and surgical practice while also serving as an educator — teaching medical students, residents, fellows, other physicians and the community at large. He is most pleased with his active research collaborations with his fellow colleagues on the retina service and the MCW Advanced Ocular Imaging Program (AOIP).
Dr. Connor is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, but has transitioned well into a Packers, Brewers and Bucks fan. He and his wife, Sue, are active in scouting and coaching youth sports, and they are the proud parents of triplets.
