The Ophthalmologist Publishes a One-of-a-Kind Takeover Issue



New York, US, October 12, 2021 – The Ophthalmologist, a preeminent publication in the field of ophthalmology, has partnered with top industry leaders featured in The Ophthalmologist’s past and present Power Lists for a special takeover issue that showcases valuable insights on career success and emerging developments in the field. 


For the October issue, The Ophthalmologist’s editors have collaborated with leading practitioners and scientists to deliver unique stories, insightful interviews, and glimpses into the future of the field that are available nowhere else.


The Ophthalmologist’s annual Power List celebrates the great minds and personalities that contribute to the field of ophthalmology. Each “Power Lister” is nominated by readers of The Ophthalmologist and then ranked by an esteemed panel of independent judges. The October issue of the publication illustrates how the Power List continues to make a splash in the field. Cynthia Roberts, Chair for Research in Ophthalmology at Ohio State University in Columbus commented on the impact of The Ophthalmologist’s  Power List: “You would be surprised to know how many people look at the Power Lists to determine who they want on panels, as consultants, and involved in different projects.”


Editorial highlights include:

  • The Path to the Podium: The cover feature spotlights leading figures in ophthalmology including Julia Haller, Soosan Jacob, Anat Loewenstein, Cynthia Roberts, and Louisa Wickham, who discuss milestones on the route to the apex of their profession.
  • From Nurse Consultant to Recognition by the Queen: Adam Mapani discusses his career, from becoming the first-ever nurse consultant in ophthalmology at Moorfields, to volunteering with African communities on the continent and around the world, all the way to receiving an MBE from Queen Elizabeth II (MBE, Member of the Order of the British Empire, is awarded for an outstanding achievement or for service to the community).
  • Trends in Glaucoma Practice and Ocular Surface Management: Serial Power Listers Elizabeth Yeu and Paul Singh share their insights on current glaucoma practice and ocular surface management. 
  • Combining Research and Clinical Practice for Professional Success: Mariya Moosajee reflects on the challenges  of combining the roles of clinician and researcher. Nikki Hafezi describes how she made a name for herself in ophthalmology by turning obstacles into opportunities.


This highly anticipated takeover issue taps into the ground-breaking April 2021 Power List issue that featured the Top 100 Women in Ophthalmology, showcasing the unique challenges they overcame and the groundbreaking accomplishments that followed.


Aleksandra Jones, Editor of The Ophthalmologist, shared these comments about the takeover issue, "Given the huge popularity of this year’s Power List, we wanted to dedicate an issue to the stories and experiences of a handful of the many influential figures who have featured in the Power List and shaped the field over the years. We sincerely hope their insight will inspire future waves of influencers and disruptors."
