Welcome back to The Ophthalmologist! I hope you had a lovely, well-deserved break and the pandemic restrictions didn’t alter your plans significantly.

2020 might be over, but COVID-19 is still with us, and will be for some time yet. Will lessons learned last year make 2021 easier, safer and healthier for us all? Our sister title, The Medicine Maker, recently recorded a brilliant roundtable on pandemic preparedness and lessons learned from the past, and published a mammoth feature summarizing COVID-19 research published in 2020. If history is not to be repeated, it is important to know it – so have a look and feel free to share these resources. Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor.
