August 2023 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to this year’s annual Art of Ophthalmology gallery issue, where we’ve served up a visual feast of artworks created by those on each side of the ophthalmologist’s desk: visually impaired artists and the doctors who serve them. In her editorial, Sarah Healey asks whether art galleries and museums are doing enough to ensure that their displays are representative of all creatives. Our Upfront section covers the latest ophthalmic industry and research news, including ophthalmologists’ perceptions of parental leave policies, how a pre-existing drug indicated for Alzheimer’s and cancer is being recycled to treat retinopathy of prematurity, and a breakdown of the what, where, and how many of this year’s list of Power List winners. Alongside this issue’s cover feature, we introduce the brand-new Power List Hall of Fame – an enduring celebration of the giants of ophthalmology, featuring our 10 inaugural inductees. In our Anterior Segment section, Andrew D. Pucker and George Magrath take us through the history and evolution of the NEI corneal sodium fluorescein staining scale. In the Retina section, we hear from Jennifer Jacobs on a teleophthalmology model that may revolutionize monitoring and treatment for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). And in Glaucoma, serial entrepreneur Barbra Wirostko discusses her company’s developmental compound, which provides a novel therapeutic approach for tacking episcleral venous pressure. To round out the issue, we sit down with ophthalmologist and award-winning author Andrew Lam.
