Introduction

By Karen Roman, Editor-in-Chief
 

When we think of the attributes of someone regarded as creative, many might visualize an artist or inventor toiling away at his or her latest creation. Generally speaking, this impression is surely adequate. But, in reality, those with creative minds can be much more complex—especially when we narrow the scope to focus on the creative minds in the world of ophthalmology. In this profession, there is no shortage of individuals using their creativity to make the world a better place, both for patients and for the physicians who care for them. You know who they are. We all do. But how much do you really know about them?

Retina Today’s Chief Medical Editor, Allen C. Ho, MD, and Associate Medical Editor, Robert L. Avery, MD, along with the medical editors of Bryn Mawr Communications’ other ophthalmic titles (MillennialEYE, Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today, both US and European editions, CollaborativeEYE, and Glaucoma Today), nominated individuals whom they view as being hard-working, influential, inspiring—and creative. These creative minds in ophthalmology are profiled in the following pages, giving you an up-close look at what makes them tick, both professionally and personally. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it does represent the breadth of talents in this field from different subspecialties. We hope you enjoy reading these interviews.
