Protecting Sight #239: How a green economy could work for you. IOL calculations with retinal disease & idiopathic corneal hemorrhage. The science of well-being & SMILE laser eye surgery.

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 – Angela Francis: How a green economy could work for you. “How do you get the environment to the top of everyone’s priority list? You can’t, says climate advocate Angela Francis — but you can get them to care about improving their lives. In this pragmatic talk, she shares her playbook for helping even the most skeptical among us see the benefits of a greener economy on their health, wealth and well-being.” (

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – CataractCoach 1007: IOL calculations with retinal disease. Excellent pearls.

3. Journal – Faulkner WJ. Idiopathic Corneal HemorrhageJAMA Ophthalmol. 2021;139(1):e204053. doi:10.1001/jamaophthalmol.2020.4053.
