News and notices. Comm Eye Health Vol. 19 No. 57 2006. March 01, 2006


We have been very sad to hear of the untimely death of Dr Vijay Mehra. He was a member of the first class of diploma students at the International Centre for Eye Health in 1981, just after Professor Barrie Jones had started the new department. He was the first alumnus to become active in population-based research and he was responsible, in collaboration with Dr Darwin Minassian and Dr Angela Reidy, for some landmark observations on cataract aetiology and incidence. We send our deep sympathy to his family and everyone in India who was associated with Dr Vijay Mehra.
