This year’s Research Report takes a slightly different tack from what you might be used to. The overall number of projects described is far less than has been our custom with traditionally shorter, abstract-based reports, but we hope that the greater depth of description is worth the trade-off. With fewer topics, however, it’s worth pointing out that this is by no means intended as an exhaustive report of what ophthalmic researchers are up to. These topics may simply represent intriguing approaches that appealed to the Review staff or our medical advisors. If your favorite topic is not here, there are plenty more pages where these came from.
For their guidance and recommendations, we are very grateful to Drs. Carl Regillo, Kuldev Singh, Louis Probst, Penny Asbell and Natalie Afshari.
