Innovations in Ophthalmology Mark Unprecedented Period of Growth




Present era called “a vibrant time” for development.

Ophthalmology is entering an unprecedented period of development, according to Eric D. Donnenfeld, MD, among other eyecare professionals interviewed by Healio. “I don’t think there has been a more vibrant time in startups and development of new technology in ophthalmology,” Donnenfeld said. “At the present time, there are a number of new innovations that are being developed that are extremely exciting. They include not only pharmacologics but also surgical devices.” Consultant Barbara S. Fant agreed, noting that ophthalmology leads all medical specialties in terms of innovation.
“I’ve worked in many different therapeutic disciplines, and I always say that ophthalmology is the most inventive discipline that I’ve ever worked in,” Fant said. “When they see a problem and they see an unmet clinical need, they design something that meets that clinical need.”
