June 2019 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the June issue of The Ophthalmologist!
You’ll find the latest research in Upfront – our news and research segment – and opinion pieces from some of ophthalmology’s brightest minds in In My View. This month, members of Women in Vision UK make the case for better mentorship and collaboration in ophthalmology, and Daniel Williams explains why an integrated approach can help patients come to terms with sight loss. In our feature, (Visual) Field of Endeavor, we look at new possibilities in visual field testing with five ophthalmic experts and researchers. In Practice features an article on genetic testing in pediatric eye diseases by Jane Ashworth, while Danson Muttuvelu offers a physician’s guide to using the Malyugin Ring 2.0 in complicated cataract cases. We also present content based on forums organized by The Ophthalmologist, featuring panels of ophthalmic specialists. In NextGen, Catharina Busch asks about options for DME patients who respond sub-optimally to anti-VEGF therapy. In Profession, Hunter Cherwek from Orbis explains how donations to the “See My Future” appeal can help transform eye care worldwide. Finally, we sit down with Sobha Sivaprasad, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Moorfields Eye Hospital and University, College London and Editor-in-Chief of Eye.
