I am extremely proud to share this year’s Power List with you, this time focusing exclusively on outstanding female figures in ophthalmology. As one of the featured Power Listers put it: “I hope [this Power List] gives courage to other women to aspire [to similar positions]. Looking at the list, I see that our future is bright with so many capable women at all stages of their careers.”

A hugely overwhelming majority of our readers and contributors have praised the list, but not everyone is sold on the idea – read Lucy Mathen’s column to find out what her reservations are. Then, let me know your thoughts on edit@theophthalmologist.com. Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor
