We are very excited to share the news that the JCRS May 2018 article by Dr. Vance Thompson has been conferred the prestigious 2018 Rosen Award. The Rosen Award is given “to the author(s) of the best technique article published in the year, as voted on by the editors.”

The winning article is titled “Streamlined method for anchoring cataract surgery and intraocular lens centration on the patient’s visual axis.”

It focuses on the “intraoperative method for the consistent anchoring of the intraocular lens (IOL) and cataract surgery and on the patient’s visual axis using coaxial microscope optics, surgeon-guided patient fixation, the precision pulse capsulotomy (PPC) device (Zepto) and utilizing the first (and fourth) Purkinje images.”

Here is the letter Dr. Thompson received announcing this highly regarded award. We look forward to the presentation ceremony with Dr. Thompson at ESCRS Congress on September 14-18, 2019 in Paris.
