#ProtectingSight #393: The benefits of a bilingual brain. IOL rescue, suture fixation, & making a focused stem. Wine lessons from a world class sommelier.

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

1. Ted Talk – Mia Nacamulli: The benefits of a bilingual brain. “It’s obvious that knowing more than one language can make certain things easier — like traveling or watching movies without subtitles. But are there other advantages to having a bilingual (or multilingual) brain? Mia Nacamulli details the three types of bilingual brains and shows how knowing more than one language keeps your brain healthy, complex and actively engaged. [Directed by TED-Ed, narrated by Pen-Pen Chen].” (ted.com)

Always grateful that we learned a second language (Hindi) at home growing up.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD & Dr. Rishi Gupta – 1161: IOL rescue suture fixation. Great pearls. And I still need to pick up Rishi’s book!

3. Andrew Lee MD – Masterclass Series: Making a focused stem.

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

4. Episode 12: Wine Lessons From a World Class Sommelier with Véronique Rivest— Shane Parrish writes, “Véronique Rivest and I explore the fascinating world of wine, including an on-air tasting, tips, and tricks for serving wine that will impress your friends and so much more..”

Loved this episode! Listening to a favorite podcast, The Knowledge Project, from Episode 1 onwards.
