December 2021 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to this year’s final issue of The Ophthalmologist! Our Upfront section features the latest industry and research, from the link between digital screen use and myopia, to the drug that reduces the risk of glaucoma without affecting intraocular pressure. In our opinion column, George Spaeth highlights the importance of being aware of patients’ personal circumstances.
For the December cover feature, “Visions of the Future,” Geoffrey Potjewyd gathers perspectives on what ophthalmology might look like in the world of tomorrow.
In this issue’s In Practice section, Ivan Mac outlines the importance of treating the ocular surface before surgical procedures. In NextGen, we explore the science behind the brain training solution to adult amblyopia, as well as blockchain solutions for healthcare. In Profession, Omer Trivizki interviews retina legend, Philip Rosenfeld, and Samuel Masket looks at ergonomics for ophthalmologists. Finally, we sit down with Gerd Auffarth, IOL expert and Chairman of the Ophthalmology Department at University of Heidelberg in Germany.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue and join us again in 2022!
