Dr. Cionni designed special implants and surgical techniques to improve the surgical outcomes in patients with traumatic cataract and congenital lens subluxation, as found in many patients with Marfan Syndrome. He educated surgeons nationally and internationally about the use of these devices, in addition to his teaching positions at University of Utah and the John A. Moran Eye Center.

Dr. Cionni served as the 2015-2016 President of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. He has also been a member of many professional organizations, including the Utah Ophthalmology Society, the Utah Medical Association, Cincinnati Academy of Medicine, the Ohio State Medical Association, the Cincinnati Society of Ophthalmology, and the International Intraocular Implant Club.

The team at The Eye Institute of Utah continues to carry on Dr. Cionni’s legacy of innovation and exceptional patient care. We wish him all the best in his retirement.
