I’ve joined the ranks on Quora so if you have any questions about the eyes, vision, etc please just ask and I will do my best to answer.
I just answered my first question and that was about eyelid twitching.
Via the internet, people have more knowledge at their fingertips than ever before. Not only can they read about the eye and various illnesses, they can see pictures, listen to podcasts or watch videos.
Sure one can definitely learn a lot this way, but to be a true expert that administers advice that a patient can truly rely on, one needs to be subjected to expert teaching and then has to pass strict rigorous testing.
Whether you’re a lawyer, mechanic, plumber or surgeon, people are relying on you and you can never stop learning.
I couldn’t use the techniques I first used 30 years ago as they have been superseded many times over! Technology changes and we have to stay on top of it so our patients receive the latest practices.
