European Glaucoma Society

Guess who’s going to be the next President?

 

Our very own Professor for glaucoma, David (Ted) Garway-Heath will be taking the reins as the next President of the EGS from January 2018.

Currently as Vice President, Ted’s work is focused on establishing outcomes to evaluate care quality across Europe, harmonizing ophthalmology training, and mentoring the younger generation of glaucoma specialists who will be taking the society forward.

In addition to his clinical work, Ted leads research in visual assessment and imaging at the Biomedical Research Centre for Ophthalmology of the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). He is also an NHIR Senior Investigator, a position awarded in recognition of his contribution to patient and people-based research.

On his latest achievement, our professor said: "I will build on the current strong and innovative leadership in pursuit of the patient-focused EGS vision to promote the best possible well-being and minimal glaucoma-induced visual disability in individuals with glaucoma."

Everyone here at the IGA wishes Ted all the best in his new role next year, and we’re sure he’ll be a great success!
