Senior Resident, Cornea, Lens and Refractive Surgery Services, Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
After observing the lack of basic instruments and academic teaching found in some institutions in India, Arora was inspired to found the Young Ophthalmologist Society of India (YOSI), which includes an online forum for discussing clinical cases, surgical techniques and the latest guidelines, and now a magazine; YO Times. Arora also uses social media to promote better eye care awareness, and to help young ophthalmologist network and collaborate. He says “My dream is to minimize the differences in opportunity in learning as I consider that a basic right. This step will promote scientific growth in YOs, who will take ophthalmology to the next level.”
