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.
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
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.
In the 6th episode of OphthoCast, we talk about the Goldmann applanation tonometry. We describe to you, the steps of measurement of Intraocular Pressure, sorry, Intraocular Tension. Here we describe the calibration and also the history of its designer, Dr Hans Goldmann. Hope you find it interesting.
We are planning to launch a podcast channel dedicated to Ophthalmology targeted at residents and medical students. The podcast channel will be on air soon. We plan to include a series of audio ‘talks’ on various topics ranging from basic to advanced.
We would like to state here that these are not replacement for your prescribed books, article etc but just a tool to understand concepts better.
We will try to keep things simple and easily palatable. We will also strive to include innovative topics which are not otherwise discussed elsewhere. Our references will be updated on this blog, however most of the talks will be based on basic demonstrations that you will be able to do yourself in your free time.
The talks will be available as audio links to mp3 files which will be downloadable and you can carry it around in any of your audio players including your car stereo.
