The Power List Returns
Ten years of celebrating excellence and impact in ophthalmology
In 2023, The Ophthalmologist will reach the milestone of 100 print issues. On top of that, we will also be marking the 10th version of The Power List. Nominations are open now and offer an opportunity to celebrate a decade of excellence and impact in this incredible field.
Drawn from the nominations of the global ophthalmology community and judged by an internationally renowned panel of experts, the Power List serves not just as a celebration of excellence in technology, science, and medicine, but also as a way to showcase the diversity and worldwide reach of the field. The all-female Power List of 2021 demonstrates the positive changes ophthalmology has undergone – even if there is still much to be done on that front (1).
Giants of clinical excellence find their place on the Power List and it serves as a mark of recognition to the current and future leaders of ophthalmology. The aim is always to celebrate standout achievements in the field and, at the same time, use that inspiration to raise standards, encourage innovation, and share knowledge from around the world.
So please do get involved – the more voices we hear from, the better. We want the broadest possible range of nominations to make sure that the 10th iteration of the Power List is the biggest and best one yet.
Wherever you are in the world and whatever your connection to ophthalmology, please take a moment to think – who do you know that exemplifies excellence and impact in ophthalmology? They might be a well-known leader in the field, a surgical pioneer, or a technological innovator. Equally they might be an underappreciated pillar of eyecare or a researcher on the cutting edge of ophthalmic science. Regardless, this is your chance to help them make their mark and find some recognition from the ophthalmology community!

After almost a decade working in academic writing, I wanted to find a new challenge that would let me keep telling stories, learning new things and experiencing the excitement of scientific innovation. That’s what makes The Ophthalmologist a perfect fit for me.
