It’s safe to say this year has been tumultuous, and there are still protests and marches taking place in different parts of the world.

In many of those protests police forces still use rubber bullets, tear gas, and pepper spray. We wrote about the AAO’s stance on these crowd dispersion methods back in June, in #NotOneMoreEye, and recently we published Ravi Goel’s column calling on his fellow ophthalmologists to speak out in your patients’ interests. Would you like to tell us what you think about this? Comment under one of these articles or send a message to aleksandra.jones@texerepublishing.com. Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor.
