March 2018 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the March issue of The Ophthalmologist! In Upfront, read about how diet soft drinks might be bad news for diabetic retinopathy, how music may make you a better surgeon, and more. In My View features Brian Joondeph on the political forecast for ophthalmology, John Sandford-Smith discusses the obvious solution to tackle cataract blindness worldwide, and Nicolas Sohl addresses his approach to cell therapies. In our feature, four leading surgeons share their experiences of performing live surgery, and reflect on notable memories and impart their wisdom. In Practice sees Ilya Leyngold introduce his minimally invasive corneal neurotization technique for neurotrophic keratopathy. In NextGen, we benchmark cornea clinical trials to see where research has been focused and where the field might be heading. Profession features John D. Shepherd discussing the importance of helping patients live with irreversible vision loss – and why ophthalmologists should see patients as more than their disease. Finally, in our North American issue, we Sit Down With Monty Montoya, President and CEO of SightLife Surgical. In our Europe and rest-of-world edition, we Sit Down With Michele Acton, CEO of Fight for Sight UK.
