March 2020 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

The Ophthalmologist’s March cover feature is all about an organ-to-cloud glaucoma project, the potential answer to ophthalmology’s glaucoma management problem.
Our new, redesigned Upfront section features the latest research, innovations and trends in ophthalmology, from brain mapping diversity in eye dominance to tracing cataract surgery through the ages.
In the In My View opinion columns, Jennifer Loh discusses her involvement in CEDARS/ASPENS and the importance of industry relationships to moving the field forward, and Kaweh Mansouri argues that glaucoma sub-specialty finds itself at a turning point.
Our three In Practice articles discuss how mitomycin C shortages might affect glaucoma surgery, how surgical adjuncts can make cataract surgery safer and minimize costs, and how the joint-up approach improves quality of care for patients with diabetic eye diseases.
Michael Stumpp presents the The DARPin platform for AMD and DME treatments in our NextGen section, while in the Profession department we talk to Scheffer C.G. Tseng about the key to boosting diversity in ophthalmology – Minority Mentoring Programs – and we kick off a new series, presenting ophthalmology’s most inspiring figures – beginning with the unsurpassable Fred Hollows.
Finally, we sit down with Melissa Hunfalvay, former athlete and co-founder of RightEye.
