Image of the Month: Clash of the Titans

"Sometimes something artistic comes from an unexpected place and slaps you in the face," says Richard Koplin, Co-Director of the Cataract Service at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mt. Sinai, NY, USA. He has been a clinician and inventor of ophthalmic diagnostic and surgical devices for 30 years.

As he describes it, “I was adjusting the operating microscope in preparation of initiating a routine cataract procedure, when I was stopped in my tracks by the odd presentation of the conjunctival melanosis at the limbus in this case. It took very little imagination to conjure up two large and formidable animals butting heads; bison came to mind and in an online search of photographic images that might justify my flight to fantasy, I came upon this doppelganger.”

About the Author

Aleksandra Jones

Editor of The Ophthalmologist

Having edited several technical publications over the last decade, I crossed paths with quite a few of Texere's current team members, and I only ever heard them sing the company's praises. When an opportunity arose to join Texere, I jumped at the chance! With a background in literature, I love the company's ethos of producing genuinely engaging content, and the fact that it is so well received by our readers makes it even more rewarding.
