About

Bio

I have worked in 3 sub-specialties, A. Neuro-Ophthalmology, B. Cornea & External Diseases, including Refractive Surgery of all kind: Lasik, PRK, ICL & more, & Retina & Vitreous. But my heart & soul is medical ophthalmology. I have trained over 100 residents & fellows dozens in cornea & retina & 3 in Neuro-ophthalmology since 1981 & I have always told them, "don't forget you are first an MD & a clinician, then a surgeon". With practice anybody can become a good surgeon. But to become an excellent clinician is the ultimate goal. & that is only achievable through hardship & care. My main practice right now is neuro-ophthalmology & development of new OCT software to detect neurological diseases before they show signs & symptoms otherwise.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Build immune system: You need your Vitamin D levels 50-75 out of 30-100. Take1. Vitamin D 5000 iu daily, 2. Vitamin C 1000mg daily. 3. Zinc 50 mg daily. 4. Selenium 200mcg daily. Two most common complication of Covid19 are A. Cytokine Storm. B. Coagulopathy. Both are regulated by adequate vitamin D. I have not had a single patient with vitamin D levels of 50-80 that advanced to intubation.

Good immune system!: Pre-exposure prophylactic use of simple vitamins & minerals are most important. Two most important causes of severe complications are immune dysregulation (Cytokine Storm) and hyper-coagulopathy. Both are regulated by adequate vitamin D levels. Everyone should have Vitamin D levels checked and adequately treated. Then vitamin D 5,000iu, Vitamin C 1000mg, Zinc 50mg & Selenium 200mcg one daily.

No; more areas need.: A 2017 review of past research in BMJ looked at 1,984 people who had injuries from "kinetic impact projectiles," which includes rubber bullets. It found that 53 of them died and 300 suffered permanent disability. Of those who survived, 71% had severe injuries. For men wearing an atheletic cup is a must. For both sexes wearing skating elbow, knee & shin guards help & of course adequate eye gaurdS.
