Protecting Sight #282: Why do we argue? Toric extended depth of focus (EDOF) IOLs & Wernicke’s Syndrome. Developing the leader in you.

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 – Daniel H. Cohen: For argument’s sake. “Why do we argue? To out-reason our opponents, prove them wrong, and, most of all, to win! Right? Philosopher Daniel H. Cohen shows how our most common form of argument — a war in which one person must win and the other must lose — misses out on the real benefits of engaging in active disagreement.” (

Insightful Ted Talk.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1050: complete case: Toric EDOF IOL. Great pearls and technique.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Wernicke syndrome.

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. Episode 80: Developing the Leader in You with John Maxwell — “Leadership expert John Maxwell breaks down the four traits every successful person possesses and how to awaken the leader within you, no matter what your job title says.”

This was a leadership development jam session. Shane is a master communicator and show host. John Maxwell shared non-stop insights in attaining, developing & promoting leadership skills. Worth listening to many times.
