Outstanding Editor: Dr. Andreas Lauer

Volunteer editors for the ICO’s Center for Ophthalmic Educators provide new resources each month by suggesting and seeking out materials in diverse formats that are useful, applicable, and accessible for ophthalmic educators working with residents, subspecialty fellows, practicing ophthalmologists, medical students, and allied ophthalmic personnel.

Dr. Andreas Lauer has served on the Editorial Board since 2016, and has consistently contributed high-quality resources to support teachers of residents and the continuing professional development of practicing ophthalmologists.

The ICO greatly appreciates his dedication as an Editor and to improving ophthalmic education globally.
