October 2019 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

In the October cover feature, Shared Vision, we tackle the issue of the essential relationship between ophthalmologists and optometrists. Experts from both sides of the Atlantic share their opinions and feelings about the current systems’ strengths and weaknesses, and potential future changes. Adam Mapani calls for more acknowledgment of the role allied health professionals play in ophthalmology, and Anastasios Kanellopoulos argues that FLACS has not won the fight with manual cataract procedures just yet. We also find out about the need for using adaptive optics in retinal examinations, and genetic screening in keratoconus. John Dart talks about tackling Acanthamoeba keratitis, while David Mandell and Carole Foos share advice about preparing for retirement from the earliest days of an ophthalmologist’s career. Finally, we sit down with Refractive Revolutionary, Arthur Cummings.
