#ProtectingSight #384: Lessons learned from 2,000 obituaries. Upside down IOLs, perfusion pressure, & pilocytic astrocytoma. Estimating cash flows.

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

1. Ted Talk – Lux Narayan: What I learned from 2,000 obituaries. “Lux Narayan starts his day with scrambled eggs and the question: ‘Who died today?’ Why? By analyzing 2,000 New York Times obituaries over a 20-month period, Narayan gleaned, in just a few words, what achievement looks like over a lifetime. Here he shares what those immortalized in print can teach us about a life well lived.” (ted.com)

Insightful talk. I’m constantly been inspired by a NY Times obituary.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD 1152: upside down IOL with bent haptic. Nice save.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Perfusion pressure of the Eye.

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