The Power List 2016

Roger Hitchings

Professor Emeritus of Glaucoma and Allied Sciences, University of London

Roger’s research interests lie in optic nerve imaging, visual field assessment, glaucoma surgery and normal tension glaucoma. He was behind the study that evaluated the effect of topically applied medications on the conjunctiva and the success of glaucoma surgery, and established the Clinical Trials Unit and the associated Reading Centre at Moorfields Eye Hospital, with the latter being one of the UK’s key centers for evaluating outcomes in ophthalmic clinical trials. Hitchings developed the glaucoma department at Moorfields into the largest in the UK, and one of the largest in the world.
