Welcome to the May issue of The Ophthalmologist! Our Upfront section features the latest industry and research, from an injection to reverse blindness in LCA patients to the (uneven) distribution of ophthalmologists around the world. In the opinion column, In My View, three Canadian ophthalmologists explore vision rehabilitation, Brian Joondeph wonders about the impact of the last 12 months on ophthalmology, and Tamara Fountain responds to criticism of the AAO’s early pandemic approach. For our cover feature, “This Is America,” Phoebe Harkin gathered perspectives on the legacy of David K. McDonough, the first Black ophthalmologist in the US, who was awarded his medical degree no sooner than 170 years after finishing his medical training. The issue’s In Practice articles take on implantable contact lenses, lasers used in retinal surgery, a new app for glaucoma patients, and an innovative Demodex blepharitis therapy. We also look back to our first Dry Eye Debate, featuring four leading dry eye experts. In NextGen, Peter Rainger explains how virtual reality simulations can improve surgical training worldwide. Finally, we sit down with Boris Malyugin, Deputy Director at the S. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery State Institution in Moscow, Russia. I hope you enjoy reading this issue!
