Protecting Sight #291: How to save the world from bad meetings. Sagging eye & morning glory disc anomaly. Bits & pieces on writing well.

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 – David Grady: How to save the world (or at least yourself) from bad meetings. “An epidemic of bad, inefficient, overcrowded meetings is plaguing the world’s businesses — and making workers miserable. David Grady has some ideas on how to stop it.” (

I need to schedule a Zoom meeting with colleagues to review this Ted Talk.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1059: Quiz: the case is not done yet. Well done.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Sagging Eye 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. William Zinsser, On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction. Chapters 10 (Bits & Pieces).

Pearls on the proper use of verbs, adverbs, adjectives, qualifiers, and more.

5.  Yoshihiro Yonekawa, MD & Alicia Thresher. (MidAtlantic Retina) Morning Glory Disc Anomaly. “Color fundus photograph of a young boy with morning glory disc anomaly. Notice the concavity surrounding the enlarged disc, radial vasculature, and nasally dragged macula. MRI was negative for moyamoya disease, a known association.”
