From the Editor's Desk
YOs! Welcome to the fabulous world of ophthalmology. We are thrilled you are joining our specialty. The 10th anniversary YO Info Resident Edition will serve as an excellent resource as you embark on your journey into ophthalmology. I also encourage you to view our previous versions at aao.org/young-ophthalmologists/yo-info. We will provide you with tips on how to get started in your residency training, work up and present a glaucoma patient, become an expert in indirect ophthalmoscopy, prepare for cataract surgery, know your ophthalmic drops and more.
But what is a YO? A YO is a young ophthalmologist: those in residency/fellowship training and their first five years of practice. The YO Info newsletter provides resources tailored just for YOs. To receive our newsletters, it is essential to opt in to Academy communications through your member profile.
YO Info is just one of the many resources the Academy provides to its members. These resources are free to you, our members-in-training! Take a deep dive into the Academy’s website, check out the ONE® (Ophthalmic News and Education) Network and remember to opt in to Academy communications.
Welcome to YO Info, the Academy and ophthalmology.
