June 2023 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the May/June edition of The Ophthalmologist, bringing you the regular selection of some of the best news, opinions, interviews and expert insight you’ve come to expect from The Ophthalmologist. Our upfront section highlights the worsening disparities in pediatric ophthalmology and some of the possible connections between retinal health and psychiatric illnesses. In our “In My View” section, we hear from Brandon Kennedy, who shares his concerns about the potential changes to veteran healthcare brought about by the Federal Supremacy Project – it seems concerns around scope of practice aren’t going anywhere soon. This month’s feature brings together some of the leading European figures in myopia research to discuss how ophthalmologists – and governments – across the continent are responding. We also want to hear from our readers in the USA so please get in touch and share your view on the ever growing myopia problem. To close out this months’ issue, we sit down with Professor of Ophthalmic Epidemiology, Jugnoo Rahi, who discusses the importance of policy making and challenges ophthalmologists to take a wider view of eye care beyond just one patient at a time.
