Commenting on his appointment, David said, “The World Association of Eye Hospitals is an invaluable forum to work together and share knowledge. I am looking forward to leading the association to ensure that it continues to promote collaboration in ophthalmology to improve care and outcomes for people with sight loss around the world.”
