Change for the better

The pandemic has caused a great many changes for our medical practices and personally. The necessity of change even in the face of adversity, in some cases, has made us better. EyeWorld is embarking on its own major change as it seeks to better serve ASCRS membership.
In the 2021 calendar year, EyeWorld will publish quarterly, rather than monthly. With this change in frequency, EyeWorld, as the official publication of ASCRS, will increase its membership focus through quality reporting on pertinent clinical topics and ASCRS news. We’ll also take this opportunity to boost EyeWorld’s relevance and timeliness through use of our digital assets to keep the membership abreast of late-breaking stories and pressing issues in the field of ophthalmology. We are enhancing our commitment, with the help of our Editorial Board, to discussing what’s important to anterior segment ophthalmologists. Whether it’s an update from important meetings, news from within the organization or from government agencies impacting our career, information on new drugs or devices, focus stories on surgical techniques, or highlights of novel research, we will continue to include content relevant to anterior segment surgery and your practice.
Each issue will be broken down into sections highlighting ASCRS news, cataract, refractive, glaucoma, cornea, and practice management topics. The issues will be larger than the typical monthly size to which you have grown accustomed, so a wide variety of articles will be found in each quarterly issue.
To accommodate this change, EyeWorld’s next issue will publish in December 2020. Here you will get a glimpse of this new format, with a larger issue that still covers timely and relevant clinical topics. This issue will take a look back at some topics particularly relevant to 2020 and will address a variety of clinical topics that we think our readers will find compelling.
With these changes and added value in each issue, EyeWorld will be a true ASCRS member benefit. The issue will be mailed to ASCRS members and online access will be available to members with credentials as well.
Thank you for your ongoing interest and support of EyeWorld. We strive to bring our readers the most educational and informational content and look forward to continuing to bring these stories to you in the future.

EyeWorld has gone through several changes in its more than 20-year history, including a redesign in 2019. The publication
embarks on another change starting December 2020, transitioning to quarterly issues that will offer ASCRS members expanded coverage on topics important to anterior segment surgeons.
