    What ophthalmologists are thankful for

    The 5 greatest ophthalmic innovations of the 21st century


    3. Electronic Health Records (EHR)   

    While EHR may seem like an unusual choice to sneak into our top 5, just ask any ophthalmologist (or any physician for that matter) about the impact of EHR on their practice of medicine. No doubt their responses would be opinionated on both sides of the spectrum, to say the least. While EHR systems began as early as the 1960s, widespread adoption really took shape after the year 2000; currently, nearly 60% of all providers are utilizing EHR systems.2
