December 2022 Issue of The Ophthalmologist

Welcome to the latest issue of The Ophthalmologist! Our Upfront section covers some of the latest news from the dangers of paintball guns to some of the latest research on global health care inequality. In our In My View section, Erin Mceachren outlines how a new values based healthcare model is improving patient outcomes and César A. Briceño makes the case for the urgent need to ensure ophthalmology is LGBTQ+ inclusive. Our feature “How the Future Happens” offers unique insights from some of the most successful ophthalmic pioneers, who share their experience developing innovations and taking them to market. We follow that up with our yearly run down of some of the most cutting edge innovations, new therapeutics and emerging technologies which are shaping the field and offering new options to patients. In the Cornea and OSD section, we cover a new corneal implant which can restore sight. In the Retina pages we cover new research is hydrogels that combat retinal scarring and Avril Daly outlines the essential work of Retina International. The Profession section has a must-read piece on the vital importance of ergonomics in surgery before we conclude with our regular “Sitting Down With…” feature, talking with world-renowned glaucoma expert, Janey Wiggs. We hope you enjoy reading this issue of The Ophthalmologist!
