September 2019 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Our September cover feature is keratoconus. We have gathered experts from around the world to comment on the latest and best practices in detecting, diagnosing and treating this disorder, which is much more common than previously thought. We also explore the potential of silicone tamponades being used for delivering antifibrotic pharmaceuticals with Victoria Kearns. Darcy Wendel helps us check how the GoCheckKids app has been doing in various locations, and Louisa Wickham examines female leadership in eye care.
