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 – Lisa Bu – How books can open your mind. “What happens when a dream you’ve held since childhood … doesn’t come true? As Lisa Bu adjusted to a new life in the United States, she turned to books to expand her mind and create a new path for herself. She shares her unique approach to reading in this lovely, personal talk about the magic of books.” (ted.com)

2A. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – Lateral Phaco Chop Technique. Guest surgeon  Dr. Adrian Gavanescu from Bucharest, Romania. Great pearls.

2B. Cataract Surgery – Innovations in Wet Lab training (Aravind Eye Hospital System). Excellent video overview & especially in COVID times.

3. Journal – Deng C, Chen L, Chen X, Zhang X, Chen B, Sun X. Documenting Course of 2 Cases of Conjunctivitis in Mobile Hospitals During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic. JAMA Ophthalmol. Published online August 27, 2020. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2020.3029
