May 2020 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

In our May cover feature, Further Afield, we examine how ophthalmologists deal with issues surrounding eye care in underserved populations, from the Amazon region to Uganda. Our Upfront section features the latest research, innovations and trends in ophthalmology, from pediatric VA home testing to the industry’s contributions to fighting COVID-19. The special edition of the In My View opinion column features ophthalmologists from around the world describing how their professional and personal lives have changed during the pandemic. Our In Practice articles discuss the role of telemedicine in the current situation and beyond, effectively managing DME, and improvements to LASIK treatments. In NextGen, Jesse Berry shares her new biopsy method for retinoblastoma, and in Profession Rishi Singh examines how the pandemic can result in finding innovative ways of treating ocular conditions. Finally, we sit down with Tim Clover, the CEO of Rayner, who talks about his passion for R&D.
