For our summer issue we have prepared a real feast for the eyes – the annual Art of Ophthalmology feature. Check out this year’s inspiring artworks and photographs, and read about Jennie Jewitt-Harris’ art-based investigation into the reasons people have for refusing to donate their corneas after death.
Our Upfront section features the latest research, innovations and trends in ophthalmology, this month covering topics such as a novel, non-invasive alternative to traditional blood tests, and the influence of gut organisms on the immune system.
In the monthly opinion column, In My View, experts discuss how they will deal with the pandemic of neglected chronic eye disease following the COVID-19 lockdown, Nikica Gabrić shares his story of undergoing eye surgery three times in his life, and Judith Potts explains what living in lockdown has meant for Charles Bonnet Syndrome sufferers.
The August In Practice articles discuss the technologies and treatments set to revolutionize the way we approach ocular surface disease, a stepwise approach to get an ophthalmic innovation off the ground, and the role that the Orbis flagship telemedicine platform, Cybersight, has played in the COVID-19 pandemic.
In NextGen, Sean Ianchulev gives his tips on tackling the rapid acceleration of progressive childhood myopia following the lockdown.
Finally, we sit down with Antonia Joussen, Professor and Chair, Department of Ophthalmology, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue!
