August marks The Ophthalmologist’s first takeover issue. Starting as we mean to go on, we paired with one of the world’s leading eye institutions – Moorfields Eye Hospital – to share the research revolutionizing Europe’s healthcare landscape. Our contributors offer expert insight on a range of subjects, from the studies shifting the glaucoma treatment paradigm to the challenges of delivering quality care to an aging population – not to mention the possibilities of big data, AI and personalized medicine in current and future ophthalmic practice.
