Larry Merin

It is with great sadness that we have to report the recent death of Larry Merin who was a Fellow of IMI. Larry was one of our American colleagues and was an extremely enthusiastic and gifted Ophthalmic Photographer. His Fellowship submission, although not published, was a shining example of his professionalism and was an inspiration for any aspiring Ophthalmic Photographer. Larry eventually went on to become Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Ophthalmic Imaging Centre at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, USA.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
