Protecting Sight Daily Learning #16: One Ted Talk, cataract surgery, journal article, and book chapter. #ProtectingSight

Welcome to day #16 of my daily learning journal. My goal is to watch one Ted Talk and one cataract surgery each day. In addition, I plan to read one journal article and read/listen to a book chapter, short story or other piece of significant work.

Here’s today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Jonny Sun – You are not alone in your loneliness – “Being open and vulnerable with your loneliness, sadness and fear can help you find comfort and feel less alone, says writer and artist Jonny Sun. In an honest talk filled with his signature illustrations, Sun shares how telling stories about feeling like an outsider helped him tap into an unexpected community and find a tiny sliver of light in the darkness.” (

This was a Ted’s latest recommendation for me which matched my interest of “personal growth.” I continue to be impressed with Ted speakers and especially those who can convey meaningful concepts in less than 12 minutes.

2. Cataract Surgery – Yamane Technique & sutured IOL – A couple of good cases to watch.

3. Journal article – EyeNet February 2020 – Complicated Phaco Cases. Excellent Q&A with pearls on challenging cases.

4. Book Chapter – Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice. Chapter 41-45 via podcast. Excellent narration & quite addictive.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I hope you enjoy these selections.
