What is OSN’s Retina 150? The OSN Retina 150 is a select group of retina specialists the editors and publisher have identified as leading innovators in the field of medical and surgical retina. The list is a compilation of specialists who either work to educate their colleagues or innovate by developing novel technologies and techniques to advance the specialty.

OSN Retina 150 logo

The editors and publisher used no magic formula or algorithm to develop the OSN Retina 150 list. Rather, we went with our collected knowledge and experience with these individuals. Admittedly, we know we missed other notable innovators, but overall, we believe it is a good list. We plan to use this list as a way to encourage discussion. Do you want to join the discussion? If so, please reach out to us and share your ideas and feel free to point out if you believe yourself or a colleague was inadvertently left off the list.

We believe the OSN Retina 150 is a tool for kick-starting conversations and evolving the retina specialties. In future issues, we will share with you results of the surveys we conduct, video perspectives we gather and Round Table discussions we conduct with OSN Retina 150 members.

We look forward to your feedback and how we can best use Ocular Surgery News and the OSN Retina 150 to do even better for the profession. Contact the editors at
