In Memoriam: Dr Ronald Pinkerton (Friday 4 June, 2021)

It is with sadness that we share the news that Dr. Ronald Pinkerton passed away on Friday, June 4 2021. Dr Pinkerton had an enormous impact as the leader of Queen's Ophthalmology from 1973-1991. He was an exemplary clinician, a trusting teacher and a consummate academic, instilling interest in every aspect of ophthalmology.  He will be remembered for bringing kindness and joy to those he treated and those he taught.
