Welcome to the October issue of The Ophthalmologist. Upfront’s topics include how the brains of the congenitally blind perform arithmetic, whether general anesthesia affects IOP, and the latest on Zika infection and the eye. In My View includes Robert Ritch on laser iridoplasty to treat angle closure, and what the MACARA cost-reduction act means for ophthalmologists in the US. Our cover story features the first ever robotic-assisted eye surgery in man – and what it means for eyecare and society. In Practice sees Donny Suh investigate wrong eye surgery and Martin Dirisamer explains why Fuchs dystrophy might not be a dystrophy at all. In Profession, Kimberly Drenser discusses why gene therapy could be held back by the lack of access to gene testing, and we Sit Down With Harry Quigley, A. Edward Maumenee Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute.
