Streaming Reality

As a cataract and refractive specialist, a typical week involves seeing patients and performing surgeries, just like many other ophthalmologists. What isn’t so typical is that every week I live stream approximately 50 of my cases via YouTube and my website, LASIKTV.com.

What inspired me to do this? Live streaming my surgeries demystifies ophthalmic surgery for the public, as well as demonstrating LASIK and anterior segment surgery for prospective patients. The live surgery also enhances communication with fellow surgeons, provides students and clinicians with an appreciation of techniques painfully absent in highly edited videos, and allows me to compare my techniques with other practitioners.
