Protecting Sight #270: How Deep Tech can shape the future. MIGS, entopic phenomenon, visual snow, palinopsia, & presbyopia-correcting IOLs. Maximizing Our Locus of Control.

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 – Antoine Gourévitch: What is deep tech? A look at how it could shape the future. “How do companies like SpaceX make sudden breakthroughs on decades-old challenges? Emerging tech expert Antoine Gourévitch explains how deep tech — a new approach to innovation that merges science, engineering and design thinking — is unlocking solutions to problems in space exploration, biology, energy and more. As Gourévitch says: ‘[deep tech] is changing what was once considered impossible into something actively possible, today.'” (

Fascinating talk on the future promise of deep tech.

2. D. Brian Kim MD – iStent inject w – Excellent pearls for MIGS surgeons.

3A. Andrew Lee MD – Positive visual phenomenon Part I, Entoptic, Migraine, Occipital Seizures

3B. Andrew Lee MD – Positive visual phenomenon Part II, Charles Bonnet, Visual Snow, Palinopsia

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are around 5 minutes and filled with high-yield pearls.

4. #106 Josh Kaufman: Maximizing Our Locus of Control. “Author of one of the best business books of all time, The Personal MBA, Josh Kaufman chats with Shane about rapid skill acquisition, mental models, decision making, overcoming fear and so much more.”

5. “Mastering the Fundamentals of Presbyopia-Correcting IOLs: Minimizing Postoperative Refractive Errors and Elevating Quality of Vision by Optimizing Materials” (Evolve Medical Education) – Excellent webinar.
