Pets of Ophthalmology: The Power List

Over the last two years of pandemic living, pets have made a big difference in the lives of many ophthalmic professionals, and we want to celebrate them. That is why we are so happy to present our Pets of Ophthalmology Power List 2022!

We have a fantastic final list of PUPhthalmologists, CAT-aract specialists, and even starGOATs! From the nominations that we’ve received, it is very clear that pets are a big part of many of our readers’ lives, and I’m proud to honor them in this list.

Our PUPhthalmologist section includes pets owned by Carol L. Shields, Andrzej Grzybowski, Gladys Atto, Alessandra Balestrazzi, Paolo Michieletto, and members of The Ophthalmologist team.

About the Author
Geoffrey Potjewyd

Associate Editor, The Ophthalmologist

The lion’s share of my PhD was spent in the lab, and though I mostly enjoyed it (mostly), what I particularly liked was the opportunity to learn about the latest breakthroughs in research. Communicating science to a wider audience allows me to scratch that itch without working all week only to find my stem cell culture has given up the ghost on the Friday (I’m not bitter). Fortunately for me, it turns out writing is actually fun – so by working for Texere I get to do it every day, whilst still being an active member of the clinical and research community.
