Protecting Sight #64: “How to make peace? Get angry.” A Nobel Laureate inspires millions to change the world for the better.

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 – Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi – How to make peace? Get angry. (2015) “How did a young man born into a high caste in India come to free 83,000 children from slavery? Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi offers a surprising piece of advice to anyone who wants to change the world for the better: Get angry at injustice. In this powerful talk, he shows how a lifetime of peace-making sprang from a lifetime of outrage.” (

An honor to watch this Ted Talk. Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi is a constant source of inspiration.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Resident Case: improve flip and chop.

A, Netarsudil-associated reticular epithelial edema was most marked inferior nasally in the right eye (white arrowhead), although diffuse microcystoid epithelial and stromal edema were present in both eyes. B, Anterior segment spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (RTVue; Optovue) of the corresponding inferior nasal cornea in the right eye (white arrowhead).

3. Journal article – Chen TC, Jurkunas U, Chodosh J. A Patient With Glaucoma With Corneal EdemaJAMA Ophthalmol. 2020;138(8):917–918. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2020.1023. The JAMA Clinical cases are filled with pearls and with many excellent references.
