In memory of Jack J Kanski

Recalling one of my early career influences back in 1989, it is with sadness to learn of the passing of Jack J Kanski on 5 January 2019.

A true Ophthalmology great, a legend, and brilliant author.

We only met briefly once, at a meeting, but I am glad to have had the opportunity to thank you.

Clinical Ophthalmology: A Systematic Approach was so beautifully clear and richly illustrated, it set me firm on my way. I nominate it as easily the best textbook ever written.

Your teaching will live on at every slit-lamp to the benefit of millions of eye patients all over the world.

Rest in Peace Jack, keep that twinkle in your eyes.
