The Power List 2021

Welcome to our annual celebration of the inspirational minds in ophthalmology, this time shining a light on the amazing work of women in the field

Go straight to the 2021 list... or read on.

Putting together last year’s Power List was a surreal experience; at the time, we were just getting to grips with how COVID-19 was affecting the world and changing our everyday lives. We began collecting Power Listers’ responses before we knew how severely the pandemic would affect the world, and many frontrunners emailed us later, asking for a disclaimer to be included. It was difficult to celebrate among all the suffering and uncertainty.  
Nevertheless, we published the list in the hope that it would bring our readers a much-needed uplift during a very difficult time.

One year later, lockdowns remain in place in many countries and the death toll continues to climb. The pandemic is not over – and won’t be for some time – but, with vaccination programs well underway in many countries and a greater understanding of COVID-19, there are reasons to feel more optimistic in 2021.

Today, we are delighted to present to you the most outstanding figures in ophthalmology – this time, exclusively female. We hope you join us in celebrating their brilliance and their successes. And we hope their insights inspire and raise a smile.

Welcome to The Ophthalmologist Power List 2021!

To supplement this year’s list, we can also present a number of related articles:

  • Carol Shields – number one on last year’s list – penned an editorial for our special issue: The Power of Stick-to-itness
  • To see a breakdown of this year’s Power Listers by location and expertise, see The 2021 Power List in Numbers.
  • Lucy Mathen presents a different, darker perspective, by asking a big question: Are Power Lists More Harm Than Good?
  • To complete our Power List issue, we felt compelled to “Sit Down With” a truly exceptional person and hope you enjoy our interview with the FDA’s Malvina Eydelman: The Dream Weaver

About the Author

Aleksandra Jones

Editor of The Ophthalmologist

Having edited several technical publications over the last decade, I crossed paths with quite a few of Texere's current team members, and I only ever heard them sing the company's praises. When an opportunity arose to join Texere, I jumped at the chance! With a background in literature, I love the company's ethos of producing genuinely engaging content, and the fact that it is so well received by our readers makes it even more rewarding.
