    Statistics from Altmetric.com

    Ophthalmology has become divided into a number of subspecialties and in each considerable experience and expertise have developed. Clinically, this expertise is a tremendous asset when a unit is large enough to have most of the subspecialties represented. However, many smaller units do not have this advantage and yet still have to manage similar problems, albeit less frequently.

    In this new series, we have invited experts in each major subspecialty to examine a clinical problem within their subspecialty in which there are a variety of views or management options. Several formats for these clinical controversies have arisen and our guest experts have chosen at least two collaborators, often from different continents, who usually have differing views and experience to contribute. These different perspectives are discussed and our invited expert then draws the views together and provides a rational approach to the problem.

    Our aim is to cover most of the subspecialties and discuss problems within them that are relevant to the general ophthalmologist. We hope that this series will be of interest to you and useful in your clinical practice.

    We start the series in this issue with David Taylor as our guest expert and he looks at the management of congenital cataracts.
