We live in an age of science, an age in which science impacts practically every phase of our life. In the field of medicine, our entire understanding of diseases and their management depends on scientific knowledge. To obtain that knowledge, we rely on the published scientific literature. Therefore, the sanctity of science must be fiercely guarded. In medicine, true science leads to valid treatment--and preservation of the life, health and (for ophthalmologists) eyesight of our patients. A corrupted science results in corrupted scientific knowledge which in turn, in medicine, leads to wrong treatment and harm to the patients.
