Richardson-Cross Memorial Lecture 2018 Named Lecture South-West Ophthalmological Society  
Description
Francis Richardson Cross was a remarkable man whose life spanned 83 years until his death in 1931 from influenza. He practised ophthalmology until he was 80 years old and at the age of 78 was still operating with skill and steadiness. Born in Somerset, he received his medical education in London where he was influenced by Lister. He held ophthalmic posts at the Royal Ophthalmic Hospital and at King’s College Hospital and was an evening Lecturer in physiology and a part-time demonstrator in anatomy in London. In Bristol he joined the Department of Anatomy and was then appointed into general surgery at the Royal Infirmary before becoming an ophthalmic surgeon in the Eye Department of the Royal Infirmary which he founded, and at the Eye Hospital which was in poor shape until reorganized by him. Cross became the first Dean of Medicine in 1880 and subsequently held the post of Lecturer and Reader in Ophthalmology. His academic accomplishments included the annual oration of the Medical Society of London, the Bradshaw Lecture of the Royal College of Surgeons, the Long Fox Lecture in Bristol and the Doyne Memorial Lecture at the Oxford Congress. His bibliography includes general surgical as well as many ophthalmological subjects.

2014 "Power List" for Ophthalmology Other Awards and Recognition The Ophthalmologist 01-JAN-2014
Description
"The Ophthalmologist" Power List 2014 is a professional's publication cataloguing the 100 most influential people in ophthalmology. The list was developed in three stages. In stage 1, the journal invited readers to nominate people that they thought deserved recognition – only those nominated were considered. In stage 2, a jury of five noted ophthalmologists (who prefer to remain anonymous and were modest enough not to vote for themselves) selected their top 100 from the slate of nominees: the results were consolidated into a list of 100 names. In stage 3, the jury ranked the list from 1 through 100; the average scores provided the final Power List. https://theophthalmologist.com/fileadmin/top/pdf/TOP_Issue-0414.pdf
