June 2022 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the May/June issue of The Ophthalmologist! Our Upfront section covers a program helping marginalized groups access eye health services, a single-gene target to improve sight, and the latest historical ophthalmology installment.
In our opinion column, Sheraz Daya proposes a clearer classification system for IOLs to improve clarity of communication.
The cover feature is all about ophthalmic professionals who have ventured into the sporting arena and put the “eye” in “team.” Daniel Laby, Dan Morris, Julie-Anne Little, and Milton Yogi talk about their pitch-side to road-side work with the world’s top athletes.
Our Cornea and OSD section offers the latest revolution in endothelial corneal disease treatment, and in Cataract and Refractive, Sam Garg talks about the future promise of pupil- modulating presbyopia drops for the pseudophakic population.
In Glaucoma, Gerd Auffarth discusses DSLT, and Dan Lindfield shares his choice of top breakthroughs in glaucoma over the past few months. In Retina, Konstantinos Balaskas tells all on how he is using AI to track retinal degeneration, and why this could revolutionize diagnosis and treatment of AMD.
Finally, we sit down with Douglas D. Koch, Professor and Allen, Mosbacher, and Law Chair in Ophthalmology, Cullen Eye Institute, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA.T
