“The world of ophthalmology is replete with acronyms. While many become routine for practicing clinicians, there remains a need for ophthalmic acronyms within subspecialties and clinical trials to be ‘spelled out’ for other ophthalmologists. Additionally, residents and fellows in training now have a one-stop-shop for learning these often-used but rarely-explained acronyms.”
