#ProtectingSight #389: Music is medicine, music is sanity. A Malyugin ring anterior capsular rip & Wallerian degeneration. Ophthalmic technician training.

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

1. Ted Talk – Robert Gupta: Music is medicine, music is sanity. “Robert Gupta, violinist with the LA Philharmonic, talks about a violin lesson he once gave to a brilliant, schizophrenic musician — and what he learned. Called back onstage later, Gupta plays his own transcription of the prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1.” (ted.com)

Simply wonderful. I remember watching the 60 minutes piece about the fellow violinist whom Gupta speaks about, Nathaniel Ayers (Wikipedia).

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD & Guest surgeon Dr. Adeleh Yarmohammadi. 1157: Malyugin ring rips the lens capsule – Excellent teaching case and great save.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Wallerian degeneration.

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

4. EyeNet (June 2021)Ophthalmic Technicians, Part 2: Training and Retaining. Written By: Leslie Burling, Contributing Writer, interviewing Andrea Brown, Sanjay D. Goel, MD, Natalie Loyacano, COMT, ROUB, OSA, OCSR, (F)ATPO, and Adeline Stone, COT, CRA, CDOS.

“Incentivizing loyalty to your practice is key to keeping techs happy and on board.” Especially in today’s competitive market, keeping a team happy is paramount to the patient and collegial experience.
