The stories published on the blog are presented in a manner intended to facilitate discussion between ophthalmologists concerning these breaking developments.

Our goal is to help ophthalmologists and other eyecare professionals stay informed about the latest eyecare techniques, treatments, and technologies so they are better able to treat patients. At the same time, we hope that patients or consumers that read the site will be better educated when discussing their conditions with their doctors.
