Eleven Moorfields Eye Hospital and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO) staff were named in The Ophthalmologist Power List 2022, a list of the top 100 most influential people in the world of ophthalmology.
The list honours clinicians, scientists and engineers who have made a significant contribution to the field of ophthalmology every year. Each nomination celebrates experts of clinical practice and vision research, and each name is selected by an international panel of 20 judges.
Two Moorfields staff were named in the Power List’s top ten, representing an even higher level of recognition for their impact.
Congratulations to all our staff who feature on The Power List 2022 for their impressive services to ophthalmology, and the teams working with them to support and enable their achievements.
