August 2018 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the August issue of The Ophthalmologist! Upfront covers a range of topics, from the relationship between dry eye and depression to the foods that halt AMD progression… the screening test revolutionizing ROP diagnosis to the frequency of visual function deficits in developmental dyslexia. In In My View, Mary K. Daly discusses the factors influencing cataract surgery outcomes, and why more information is needed to ensure patient safety. For our Feature, Craig Robertson shares the story of Epipole – the sustainable business bringing affordable fundus cameras to neglected communities worldwide. In Practice sees Brian Francis share his top tips for endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation, and explain how an ab interno approach has benefited his patients. David Gossage reassesses the role of transcleral cyclophotocoagulation an in-office approach to glaucoma management. In NextGen, Anthony Khawaja argues the data found in clinical records is there for the taking, and discusses his own recent findings linking POAG risk with systemic medications. Finally, we Sit Down With Bonnie An Henderson, Clinical Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine Boston, USA, to talk about the ‘year of the woman’.
