Protecting Sight #277: A warm embrace that saves lives. Suturing the IOL to the CTR & Adie’s tonic pupil. Becoming the linchpin.

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 – Jane Chen: A warm embrace that saves lives. “In the developing world, access to incubators is limited by cost and distance, and millions of premature babies die each year. TED Fellow Jane Chen shows an invention that could keep millions of these infants warm — a design that’s safe, portable, low-cost and life-saving.” (

Awesome Ted Talk and love the innovation!

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1045: suturing the IOL to the CTR.

Love innovative cataract surgery techniques.


Dr. Lee’s 450+ neuro-ophthalmology reviews are around 5 minutes each. Perfect for the busy clinician & trainee. I plan to watch one a day, from oldest to newest.

4. Seth Godin, Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? “Becoming the Linchpin.”

This is a core, breakaway chapter.
