Dear Subscribers, we know that it has been a while that Ophthocast has published anything new. We would like to tell you that we were fully committed to our new venture, Eyeris Eye Care, an ophthalmology center in Sainikpuri, Secunderabad, India. Tomorrow, on 05th Mar 2019, we start this center of ours’ and will be in action.
Once settled with this center, the Team Ophthocast will resume its activities of podcasting. We will require all the luck you can spare for the success of Eyeris.
The Team OphthoCast is back with a new episode on a fresh topic. In this first instalment of the episode title ‘Why Two’, we will explore binocular vision and stereoacuity. Drawing comparisons with animal kingdom makes this study very easy and understandable. We also touch upon the development of stereoacuity with its grades and abnormalities. The topic is very vast. Too vast to be cramped up in a single episode. So we split it into two. Watch out for the second part shortly.
With over 4500 listeners, this podcast channel featured in the MedicineX/Ed conference at Stanford University in April 2017 and also stand to be presented at ESCRS 2017 Lisbon. This would not have been possible without you, our listener. Thank you for devoting your valuable time to lend us your ears.
After a long break we are back to the scene with the part two of our previous episode which was long due, “pupils – 02”. Here we dwell upon the efferent defects and anisocoria, going through Horner’s, Adie’s, Wernicke’s and Argyll Robertson pupil. Happy listening. www.ophthocast.com
We have successfully completed ONE year of uptime. Marking this achievement, we present to you a fresh episode, The Pregnant Eye. Here we describe the ocular changes occurring in the eye. Pregnancy is a physiological condition with a myriad of body changes. The eye is no exception. Starting from the conjunctiva to the optic nerve, every part is effected. It is easier to understand these changes if you correlate the body changes with the ocular changes.
With this episode describing the Vitreous humor, we step into the world of video. This audio podcast is the audio transcript of the video available on Youtube from the same loved producer, the Team OphthoCast. This episode has two references to the the images which are available on the video version. We will post the link to the video shortly.
After a short while, we are back with our new episode. This episode is on ‘Pupils’. The pupils gives us a lot of ground to cover. Apart from ophthalmology enthusiasts, this talk will be relevant for other branches as well. Due to the vastness of the topic, we have split the talk into two parts. Here you will find the first part. In this first part, we cover the afferents and the parasympathetic efferents. Part Two will be up shortly. Happy listening.
In this fresh episode, we are rejuvenated with over 1000 listeners for our podcast. As a continuation to our previous episode, we present to you ‘Anomalies of Accommodation’. Here we talk about various defects of accommodation and its management. Listening to our previous episode on Accommodation and even older one on Spectacles will help you assimilate this talk better. The speaker tries to cover all aspects of management, surgical as well as non-surgical briefly. Thanking you all for your valuable time and interest.
In this episode, the mechanism of Accommodation in a human eye is explained. With the anatomy and neurology of near vision, the attempt is at a comprehensive coverage of the topic of Accommodation. The topic is very vast and requires a thorough understanding of various mechanisms which goes into the accommodative process. We also deal with the concepts of depth of field and near reflex.
In our latest presentation, Dye the Eye, we reach the second episode. Here we take your around ICG, IFCG, Trypan blue and Janus green. We talk about the applications of these dyes in Ophthalmology. Although not comprehensive since these dyes have many more uses, we have tried to do earnest justice to the topic. Happy listening.
