Dad joke? Perhaps. But the 2020 reference to vision presents certain opportunities to ODs

Treating inflammation on anterior service proves to be effective post-surgery
Do you ever sit back and think about eye-related proverbs?
“Onion, smoke, and women bring tears to your eyes.”
“Eyes that see do not grow old, open your eyes and see what is in front of you.”
ODs use their acumen to help patients maintain or establish the best quality of vision. They use tools of their trade to establish a diagnosis, then elaborate to patients in order to create a cooperative treatment.
As this year seems to be moving as fast as the last, I find myself thinking of the book I read in 1999 called Business @ the Speed of Thought
In addition to symptoms that may compromise vision, dry eye disease (DED) discomfort can be potentially detrimental to patients’ quality of life.
Some colleagues of mine have reminded me that what ODs tell their patients prior to surgery is going to be an expectation, and things that happen after the procedure that are not discussed are considered complications.
The ability to get the most out of our patients is limited by the best that our patients can achieve.
