Protecting Sight #167: How to turn off work thoughts during your free time. Dislocated IOLs and omidenepag vs. latanoprost. The Mona Lisa.

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, podcast, or significant work.

Here’s today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Guy Winch: How to turn off work thoughts during your free time. “Feeling burned out? You may be spending too much time ruminating about your job, says psychologist Guy Winch. Learn how to stop worrying about tomorrow’s tasks or stewing over office tensions with three simple techniques aimed at helping you truly relax and recharge after work.”

Physicians start to ruminate in medical school if not before! I enjoyed this talk and pearls presented.

2. Cataract Surgery – Tips and Pearls on the management of dislocated IOL. (@retinatips on Instagram). @RetinaTips writes, “This is a case of a patient with poor outcome after cataract surgery with dislocation of the IOL to the vitreous cavity in the first week postoperatively. In the surgical planning of these procedures, it is important to check some details like, the type of the dislocated IOL, the status of its haptics and the presence or not of the remaining capsular complex. This way the surgeon can plan if the dislocated IOL needs to be removed and exchanged, or just repositioned in the ciliary sulcus.” Excellent video and narration.

4. Book Chapter – Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson. Chapter 31, “Mona Lisa.” Wonderful narrative on the world’s most famous painting.
