    How will ophthalmologists watch the eclipse?


    Slowing down

    Arun Gulani, MD, recently spoke on a local radio show in Jacksonville, FL, about best practices for watching the eclipse. Though that conversation was geared towards the public, Dr. Gulani has a special message for his fellow ophthalmologists.

    “Savor this moment as a unique event to take life in a higher perspective,” he said.

    At Dr. Gulani’s practice, Gulani Vision Institute, patients fly in for surgery from around the world. He instructed his staff not to book any patients on the day of the eclipse.

    “It’s a once in a lifetime event,” Dr. Gulani said. “We sometimes need to slow down and remember how small and insignificant we are.”

    He considers it a natural phenomenon not to be missed, and noted he may go to South Carolina or Nashville to see the eclipse in totality.
