ME Asks: What advice would you give yourself about establishing a career in ophthalmology?
“Be bold, be brave, and above all be kind. There are so many great people in our field for mentorship, collaborations, working relationships, and friendships—with both physicians and industry. Get your practice as busy as you want. Write as many articles as you can if you want. Volunteer with your local academic programs or international surgical programs. Go to meetings big and small. Seek out the abundant opportunities around you and build what excites you. There is so much to pursue—you just need to scratch the surface.”
