    In this EyeNet interview from Glaucoma 360, Dr. Alan Robin discusses the impact of waste in ophthalmology. He explains that the cost and environmental impact of surgical and medical waste are growing exponentially. Physicians can take simple steps to combat this issue, such as recycling, considering sterilization versus single-use items and carefully considering the procedures each patient needs. However, collaboration with other medical organizations and industry is necessary to make long-term change, he notes.
