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 is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Juan Enriquez: How technology changes our sense of right and wrong. “What drives society’s understanding of right and wrong? In this thought-provoking talk, futurist Juan Enriquez offers a historical outlook on what humanity once deemed acceptable — from human sacrifice and public executions to slavery and eating meat — and makes a surprising case that exponential advances in technology leads to more ethical behavior.” (ted.com)
Featured talk. Thought provoking and filled with insights. Superb.
2A. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – CataractCoach 1005: Resident’s first Anterior Vitrectomy. Great recovery and well done.
2B. Ike Ahmed MD – Angle closure in pediatric patient: Lensectomy, CTR, goniosynechialysis, goniotomy & iStents (YouTube)
3. de Carlo T, Sarran R, Vajaranant TS. An African American Man With Progressive Loss of Iris Pigmentation in Both Eyes. JAMA Ophthalmol. 2020;138(10):1089–1090. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2020.1417
4. All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things by Robert Fulghum (page 173-196). Finished!
This book was good. Brilliant marketing with the book title (17 million copies) and the subject of the first essay. I also enjoyed one of the last essays on Mother Teresa.
5. KOL Knockout™: Cataract Edition — Maximizing the Use of Aberrometry, Femtosecond Lasers, and Advanced IOLs to Improve Postoperative Outcomes in Cataract Surgery. Join us on Wednesday February 24 at 9 pm EST! Delighted to be a panelist with cutting edge colleagues. Registration (FREE CME!)
