July 2019 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to our annual images issue. We’ve curated ten pages of unusual images, taken by the industry’s most accomplished artists and photographers – including our own long-time contributor, Terry Cooper. We also tackle the difficult subject of glaucoma diagnosis, as Raymond Radford’s asks if clinicians need to reflect on their own unconscious bias before they burden patients with the fear of encroaching blindness. To take a closer look at both these stories – plus the latest research, interviews and opinions – download our July issue today.
