November 2020 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

In her editorial opening the issue, Phoebe Harkin remembers Alan S. Crandall, who sadly passed away in October. We also prepared an In Memoriam piece on Crandall, which you can find in the Upfront section. In the monthly opinion column, In My View, Ravi Goel asks his peers to fight against the use of sight-threatening rubber bullets, and Erin McEachren describes her first months in a new job, started in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. For our cover feature, we asked distinguished retinal surgeons, Noemi Lois and David Almeida, about their training, techniques they use, and their predictions for the future of the field. November In Practice articles discuss glaucoma treatment pandemic protocols, and using cryopreserved amniotic membrane for herpetic keratitis. In NextGen, three leading glaucoma specialists share their views on the newly-approved slow-release bimatoprost implant. Finally, we sit down with Luminita Paraoan, Chair of the Ocular Molecular Biology and Mechanisms of Disease Group in the Department of Eye and Vision Science at the University of Liverpool, UK. I hope you enjoy reading this issue!
