We are deeply saddened to tell you that Dr Stephen Drance passed away on 2 September at the age of 95 on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

Stephen was a giant in our field, vastly expanding our understanding of glaucoma in innumerable diverse areas.

His legacy is immeasurable. More than anything else, he had the wisdom, patience, and charm that made being with him and learning from him an absolute delight. He treated his patients with the utmost kindness and respect while continuing to ask the bigger questions. He had a healthy skepticism of dogma but respected any viewpoint with kindness and deference. He never tired of learning and told us many times that curiosity is what makes us excel.

The world has lost a legend. This unique and truly remarkable human being has touched the lives of so many people around the world.

Today we honor you, Dr Stephen Drance.

Another session highlight of the month from WGC-2019: Now you see it, now you don't: Progression or not?

Glaucoma is often progressive if left untreated; however, detection of progression remains a central challenge in clinical practice. In this symposium, the speaker addresses techniques to improve detection of progressive changes and how to differentiate progression from test variability and aging.
