November 2021 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the November issue of The Ophthalmologist! Our Upfront section features the latest industry and research, from the use of music to reduce surgical pain and anxiety, to a bitesize update on regenerative medicine in ophthalmology. In our opinion column, Arjan Dhoot, Marko Popovic and Jonathan Micieli give advice on how to get your paper published, and Elizabeth Yeu shares her views on genetic testing for keratoconus.
In the cover feature, “Never Say Never,” Ray Radford talks through never events in ophthalmology, and explores ways of minimizing the risk of them happening.
In this issue’s In Practice section, we present an international collaboration to create an assessment for AMD patients, a discussion on post-operative dry eye, and an algorithm for cataract and glaucoma patients. In NextGen, Simon Clark talks about complement-regulating proteins that play a role in dry AMD pathology, and James Pickering presents a review of gene and genetic therapies for ophthalmic conditions. Finally, we sit down with Mariya Moosajee, Professor of Molecular Ophthalmology at University College London Institute of Ophthalmology; Group Leader of Ocular Genomics and Therapeutics at the Francis Crick Institute; and Consultant Ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London, UK.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue!
