October 2012 EyeWorld launches new digital edition By Jena Passut EyeWorld Editor B eginning this month, EyeWorld will expand its reach by launching a new digital edition at www.digital.eyeworld.org. The move will enhance EyeWorld's other digital offerings, including a rapidly expanding presence on so- cial media, a newly formatted news e-blast and live meeting coverage that offers video interviews. "EyeWorld already enjoys one of the widest international print circu- lations of any ophthalmic trade journal," said EyeWorld Chief Med- ical Editor David F. Chang, M.D., also president of the American Soci- ety of Cataract and Refractive Sur- gery and clinical professor of oph- thalmology, University of California, San Francisco. "However, we believe that our reporting and educational effectiveness can be significantly en- hanced by online features such as video interviews, surgical movies, in- teractive comments and the digital edition. This also delivers our con- tent to an even wider global audi- ence, and having a bigger presence in social media will be the next logi- cal step. Ultimately, ophthalmolo- gists will benefit by having more timely and expanded coverage of the stories and topics that they are interested in." continued on page 10 www.digital.eyeworld.org Indication: The LenSx® Laser is indicated for use in patients undergoing cataract surgery for removal of the crystalline lens.
