#ProtectingSight #352: Happy maps. IOL centration & the retinal hemifield slide phenomenon. Charlie Munger’s strategy to reduce standard stupidities.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Daniele Quercia: Happy maps. “Mapping apps help us find the fastest route to where we’re going. But what if we’d rather wander? Researcher Daniele Quercia demos ‘happy maps’ that take into account not only the route you want to take, but how you want to feel along the way.” (ted.com)

A fun talk born from a Eureka moment. I love the concept behind the app he’s created.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1120: make sure the IOL is centered. Nice case and pearls for centration.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Retinal hemifield slide phenomenon.

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. William Green, Richer, Wiser, Happier. Chapter 8, “Don’t be a Fool.”

Charlie Munger has a cult-like following among Berkshire Hathaway fans and value investors. This chapter’s subtitle summarizes it best, “How to invest better, think better, and live better by adopting Charlie Munger’s strategy of systematically reducing standard stupidities.”

Well-worth reading Chapter 8 many times.
