Can you believe this is the ninth iteration of our Power List – or the fifth time we’re featuring the Top 100 most influential people in the world of ophthalmology? The 2022 List includes genuine giants of clinical practice and vision research – and each one was nominated by you and then plucked from the long list of 450 names by our international panel of 20 judges.
Do we believe our List is definitive? As ever, no! But we hope you find this year’s selection not only inspirational but also reflective of the brilliance found in so many corners of this wonderful field.
Over the past few years, we have seen some changing trends among the final 100 names. For example, you had to look hard to find a woman on 2016 List – just 10 women among 90 men. This year, we are delighted that the number of women has risen to 36. Can we credit last year’s all-female Power List with the upward swing? Well, showcasing just 100 of the many highly talented women in the field certainly didn’t hurt…
The Power List 2022 greets 21 newcomers – congratulations! Please, make yourselves at home. But the passage of time doesn’t change everything; we also welcome back 79 previous frontrunners – 14 of whom have appeared on the link six or more times!
