Protecting Sight #52: Letting go of good & becoming a better person. A nucleus femto, phaco, tuck, Kahook, & Huck.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. My daily goal is to watch one Ted Talk and one cataract surgery. I also plan to read one journal article and read/listen to a book chapter, short story or significant work.

Here’s today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Dolly Chugh: How to let go of being a “good” person — and become a better person. “What if your attachment to being a “good” person is holding you back from actually becoming a better person? In this accessible talk, social psychologist Dolly Chugh explains the puzzling psychology of ethical behavior — like why it’s hard to spot your biases and acknowledge mistakes — and shows how the path to becoming better starts with owning your mistakes. “In every other part of our lives, we give ourselves room to grow — except in this one, where it matters most,” Chugh says.” (

Good talk and I like the concept. 12 minutes.

2A. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – The hemi-nucleus tuck technique. I used this pearl today!

2B. VJCRGS – Ike Ahmed MD – Kahook Dual Blade. Great review of MIGS technologies.

3. Journal article – Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery Versus Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery (FACT): A Randomized Noninferiority Trial. Alexander C. Day, Jennifer M. Burr, Kate Bennett, Catey Bunce, Caroline J. Doré, Gary S. Rubin, Mayank A. Nanavaty, Kamaljit S. Balaggan, Mark R. Wilkins on behalf of the FACT group. Ophthalmology, August 2020: p1012–1019. Just read the abstract and you’ll be fine.
