Welcome to the October issue of The Ophthalmologist – our first Power List Takeover Issue! Our Upfront section features the latest industry and research, from the wearable device that helps protect visually impaired people from collisions, to eye injuries in the NFL – and how to prevent them. In our opinion column, In My View, Carol Shields asks what can be done to avoid future devastating waves of advanced cancers, like the current one following COVID-19-related lockdowns.
In the cover feature, “The Path to the Podium,” Julia Haller, Soosan Jacob, Anat Loewenstein, Cynthia Roberts, and Louisa Wickham discuss milestones in their careers, and in their lives in general, that have brough them to the very top of their profession.
In this issue’s In Practice section, Paul Singh makes a case for early intervention with less invasive glaucoma treatment options, and Elizabeth Yeu discusses the importance of diagnosing and treating blepharitis. In Profession, we catch up with Mariya Moosajee, who recalls the uneasy task of combining the roles of clinician and researcher, while Nikki Hafezi talks about the beginnings of her career in the ophthalmic industry, breaking barriers, and turning obstacles into advantages. Finally, we sit down with Adam Mapani, Honorary Clinical Teaching Fellow UCL Department of Clinical Ophthalmology and Nurse Consultant at Moorfields Eye Hospital, Medical Retina Department, London, UK.
