WATERLOO, Ontario—The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has announced its “Top 10 of 2022” publications list, designating works of significant value to clinicians, researchers, educators, and manufacturers. The papers were selected from 26 peer-reviewed manuscripts covering clinical studies, laboratory studies, and reviews developed by the organization over the past 12 months. Topics include drug delivery, dry eye, microbiology, myopia control, meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and more. “The entire CORE team, our collaborators, and sponsors continue to advance multiple dimensions of ocular science at a record pace, helping peers in the optometry and ophthalmology communities provide the best possible patient care,” said CORE director Lyndon Jones, PhD, DSc, FCOptom, FAAO.

“The sheer volume of these high-caliber studies can be overwhelming at times. That’s why we have selected 10 publications that represent essential knowledge for today’s eyecare professionals,” Jones said.
