    How has ophthalmology changed in 2016?


    (Cont.) "What advances are you anticipating in the coming year?"

    Dr. Lee expected the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System (Second Sight Medical Products) to become a major player in 2016. Earlier this fall, the company released the device’s 5-year safety and performance results, which were overwhelmingly positive.

    Key advances Dr. Fekrat expected included tele-ophthalmology and self-diagnosis with apps. A recent editorial described the ironic experience an ophthalmologist had with tele-medicine. In terms of new apps, several ophthalmologists weighed in about what apps make their daily work more efficient.
