Avoid propaganda and listen – Dr Jack Holladay’s advice to young opthalmologists

Dr Jack Holladay’s many accomplishments include the invention of the Brightness Acuity Tester and the development of the “Holladay IOL Consultant” and “Refractive Surgery Consultant” software programs. He has received virtually every plaudit available in the world of ophthalmology including the Binkhorst Medal, the Ridley Award and the John Pearse Memorial Award. He was recently inducted into the ASCRS Hall of Fame. In 2010 he suffered a Type 1 aortic aneurysm. Luckily he went to the ER in the hospital where the cardiac surgeon was on hand to perform the high-risk surgery that saved his life.

He subsequently retired from performing surgery and seeing patients, but maintains a busy schedule teaching and lecturing on the international conference circuit. He spoke with EuroTimes editor Sean Henahan at the ESCRS Congress in Milan.
