The Power List 2015

Tarun Arora

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.”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2014, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential people in ophthalmology – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. For our 2015 Top 40 Under 40 list we’ve taken a different approach, asking: who are the young, up-and-coming individuals set to rise to the top of their field? That’s the question we posed to ourselves – and then to you – ahead of open nominations and a painstaking judging process. Our list this year almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977. Though we admit that no list of this type can be definitive, it does clearly show that the future of ophthalmology is very bright indeed. And so, without further ado, we celebrate the movers and shakers aged 40 or under who show what can be achieved with determination, passion and inspiration.
