There is no large editorial staff, since our blog consists of only one editor. For this reason, we don’t have a long list of corporate values that few people read all the way through.
We have set a modest and achievable goal, that is to provide the reader with individual news in the field of ophthalmology, presenting them simply, but yet not trivial.
These are mainly review materials based on several relevant articles on a particular topic.
Moreover, twice a month we interview Dr. Arthur Benjamin himself. He gives answers, with his usual openness, to the most frequently asked or disturbing questions for both existing and future patients.
We cover all the aspects of Benjamin Eye Institute's medical practice, from treatments for dry eye, astigmatism or stye, to descriptions of the latest lasers and technological breakthroughs for cataract and LASIK surgeries.
Additionally, the blog covers a wider range of topics, keeping up with modern ophthalmology's novelties and discoveries in modern ophthalmology.
PRINCIPLE FOR SELECTION OF INFORMATION
Our own review articles are based only on the facts from solid scientific sources, and particularly on works carried out in accordance with strict scientific canons (for example, a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study as so on).
Readers are more than welcome to post questions and comments on the blog.
