We explore the retina exam and retina emergencies with Dr. Kyle Kovacs, previous chief resident at Yale, and current senior vitreoretinal surgery fellow at Cornell. This is our third episode in our "Buddy Call" series aimed at new trainees in ophthalmology. If you like our podcast and want to support us, a rating and review is very helpful. If you have feedback or more ideas for episodes, we'd love to hear them on our Twitter @Eyes4Ears!

We discuss Pediatrics on Call with Dr. Shagun Bhatia, our previous senior resident at Yale and now graduate of the pediatric ophthalmology fellowship at the Shiley Eye Institute at UCSD! We talk about the pediatric exam, and common pediatric ophthalmology emergencies on call.

If you're a long time follower of this podcast and think this episode would be helpful for junior residents you know, it really helps us to share it with them! If you'd like to support this free non-profit production, it also helps us to leave us a rating and review on the podcast app.

Welcome to our new miniseries, "Buddy Call", where we bring on a Buddy to discuss topics to prepare new residents or rotating medical students for ophthalmic call, and exam fundamentals. We kick things off with Dr. Paul Gaudio, Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Yale, who will tell us his unique approach to not only look at the eye, but understand it, and how to approach the red eye. If I were just starting, this is an episode I'd listen to on repeat.

We think this will be helpful to review for trainees at all levels, but if you know early trainees who you think may benefit, it really helps us to spread the word.

We are super excited to have guest star Dr Jay Sridhar, assistant professor at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute and host of the podcast Straight from the Cutter's Mouth: A Retina Podcast!
