Your expertise is requested[edit]

FYI: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Clinical medicine#RfC: LASIK MD and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Clinical medicine#RfC: Which way to redirect?. Cheers! -AED 08:16, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing the points to my attention. I have noted the input there. LasikMD is an advertorial, no doubt about that. And oculoplastics is definitely more suited. I see that you have been copyediting my contributions, apart from the extensive work that you do around here, and I appreciate both :-) EyeMD 15:43, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for formatting the Archives on my Talk page. I thought you might be interested in this AfD: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Marvin Kwitko. -AED 16:31, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Here's another one, if you're interested: Talk:Gustavo Tamayo. -AED 20:44, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

Cataract photo[edit]

Did it myself for this one, however the image I could capture from NIH are much smaller, the larger NIH photos are not in a compatible format, so someone more involved with these subjects should do this... (I have my own pet subjects that devour all my wiki time... ;-) --Janke | Talk 17:40, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Eye surgery[edit]

FYI: There is a comment from another ophthalmologist regarding one of your photos in Talk:Eye surgery#Eye muscle surgery photo. Cheers! -AED 05:51, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your help with the strabismus photos! I've looked at some of your posts -- good work! Bticho 04:42, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Vision and eye care project page[edit]

Good idea! I don't know if there are yet a sufficient number of experts to start a separate WikiProject, but it might be worthwhile to start some sort of bulletin board under Wikipedia:WikiProject Medicine. Cheers! -AED 17:21, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Per Portal talk:Medicine#Ophthalmology missing from the portal, the reason that ophthalmology does not appear on the main Portal page is because it does not yet have a Project of its own and as a Category it is already listed under "Medical specialties". If you think there is enough interest, I'll try to get Wikipedia:WikiProject Ophthalmology up and running this afternoon! Cheers! -AED 22:55, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Did you know?[edit]


In order to get more exposure for the Project, I would like to propose an article you created, Iridodialysis, for the Did you know section of the Main Page. Per the guidelines at Template talk:Did you know, it might qualify if we could expand it over the next two days or so. Do you have an images that might make it more interesting to casual observers? -AED 19:27, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

Next one?[edit]

Good job on Iridodialysis! Would you like to try for another? Suggestions? -AED 19:58, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Would you like to nominate either Ocular ischemic syndrome or Pseudomyopia for "Did you know?" If you let me know your preference, I'll do my best to help build it before we nominate it. Cheers! -AED 15:04, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Ocular ischemic syndrome sounds good! If you have any images to contribute, that would be great. I think it's easier to get article in DYK if we add them at a slower pace, but it doesn't really matter to me. There are plenty of topics out there. -AED 20:04, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Did You Know...?[edit]

Updated DYK query On 15 October, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Iridodialysis, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

SoLando (Talk) 13:54, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Welcome back! Great job with the DYK, BTW -- Samir धर्म 20:05, 24 October 2006 (UTC)


To EyeMD for the creation of the Ophthalmology WikiProject and exceptional contributions to ophthalmology articles. Great job -- Samir धर्म 20:43, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Kudos to both you and AED. Both of you are greatly improving ophthalmology content here -- Samir धर्म 20:43, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: DYK Ocular ischemic syndrome[edit]

From my experience there is no consistent pattern of notification used when an article is selected for DYK. The most likely reason for the variations is that performing an update is somewhat tedious and may take 30 minutes or more to perform. I personally place a notification only on the article talk pages with the assumption that anyone interested in the article will have the page watchlisted. --Allen3 talk 12:26, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

your edit to Ocular ischemic syndrome[edit]

Hi, the edit summary for your recent edit to Ocular ischemic syndrome is somewhat offensive, at least to me. >> (A dog does not "refer to" an animal that barks (unless the dog speaks).) << Out of place and totally unnecessary for such a small edit, I would say. EyeMD T|C 12:11, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

It explains my edit. I keep coming across articles like that one that say things like "A dog is a term that is used to describe an animal that barks" instead of "A dog is an animal that barks". What is it that offends you about it? I could have omitted any edit summary, but that offends some people; several have said so. Why is it out of place if it simple says what I did and why? Michael Hardy 05:01, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Famous ophthalmologists[edit]

I think there is a difference between famous and notable. The standards for each depends on the context of readership. In my opinion, someone who is well-known within the profession is not necessarily famous to the average Wikipedia reader. Perhaps there needs to be some discussion in the general Medicine WikiProject regarding this point. -AED 20:41, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Phakic IOLs[edit]

I haven't reviewed the edit histories of the two article, but feel free to revert my move. It's possible that I wasn't paying careful attention and thought I was moving info about PC IOLs. Regarding the content of Lens (anatomy), Cataract, Cataract surgery, Phacoemulsification, and Intraocular lens: I think a certain amount of redundant or overlapping information is OK within these articles, however, I also think we need to be careful that we don't provide excessive detail in one article that really belongs in another. -AED 23:50, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Keratoconjunctivitis sicca[edit]

Someone has been doing a good job with Keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Do you have an images to "loan"? Cheers! -AED 01:18, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Insertion Du Muscle CO image[edit]

Yes, indeed it was replaced by the French name. Because It's much more faster and efficient if we have 1 image (if the licence is free) on commons which can be used on all Wiki projects. If we want to have 1 Insertion Du Muscle CO.jpg for each language, first of all, no one has the time to upload a pic for dozens of languages on wiki. So it is a much wiser idea to upload all free licence image on commons for access of all projects. The french name is not a big problem either. I hope i had answered your question. --Arad 13:40, 3 December 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I see you've been involved in Ophthalmology articles. I've created [[Category:WikiProject Ophthalmology articles]] to generate more interest and edits in Ophthalmology related articles. Btw, why does laser eye surgery/treatment not have an article of its own? frummer 01:38, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

please also see Automated lamellar keratoplasty, just created it, please copyedit. Thanks. frummer 02:18, 22 December 2006 (UTC)
Hi, Thanks for your message. I am currently busy in real life, preparing for upcoming exams, interviews and trips. It may take me quite a while to start contributing again - I am estimating 6 months at least. Keep up the good work. EyeMD T|C 05:48, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

Will you check my Amaurosis fugax article[edit]

I have been working on expanding the Amaurosis fugax article. It is still extremely inadequate/incomplete, and I will continue to work on it in the coming days; but, I wanted to get feedback on the work I have done. Would you be willing to give me some feedback? This is my first article. Kilbad 20:13, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi Kilbad, Nice to see the tremendous effort put in by you in the article on Amaurosis fugax. Keep up the good work!! EyeMD T|C 13:07, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Corneal ulcers[edit]

Thanks, I take your points, but I presume "fellowship trained corneal surgeons" is a US qualification and would mean little to readers outside of the US. Here in the UK I'm not aware of any specific qualifications that would distinguish between Ophthalmologists - i.e. there either is no such thing or I am just ignorant of this :-) So having refered a patient to a particular hospital's ophthalmology team, I would expect selection for outpatient attendence to the more appropriate surgeon or, where none at that hospital, then having been assessed (i.e. had my "merely a GP" diagnosis assessed) then tertiary referal to colleagues elsewhere. This is true for all UK specialist referals (eg within a hospital's orthopaedic team there will be those that have the greater expertese in hand or knee problems).

Appeal for new articles[edit]

In case you miss it on the WikiProject talk page, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ophthalmology#Appeal for new articles. Carcharoth 09:58, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Accommodation (eye)[edit]

I would appreciate guidance from you or one of your colleagues on this article (see Talk:Accommodation (eye) and Wikipedia:Help desk#Undeleting a Deleted Article for background). The balance between the classic Helmholtz theory and the Schachar has been upset with the last edit "Ronaldaaron" edits, and one of the admins is discussing adding a COI flag. I am an IT professional not an Ophthalmologist, so I whilst I can suggest a set of edits to fix this, these would be considered major and therefore should be made or at least peer reviewed by a domain expert.

Terson syndrome[edit]


This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Terson syndrome, and it appears to include a substantial copy of For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists.

request for input: eye-related article titles[edit]

There's a dispute brought on by changes in titles, already done or planned, by a user who I suspect does not have a close command of the language. Most urgently, I wonder whether you agree with the change from "Eye movement" to "Eye movement (sensory)"?

Talk:Eye_movement_(sensory)#Third_opinion TONY (talk) 02:40, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi Tony, I did read the article. The talk page is however, full of accusations and counter accusations, which does not make for a good reading. I would like to reseve my comments on the nuances of the language and what each author would like to convey in the title. Wiki authors, writing and editing the articles, have actually done a pretty neat job, illustrating many aspects of Eye movements and their relation with neuro-anatomy and elucidated the finer aspects. I congratulate all of them. EyeMD T|C 18:12, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

I have a question sir.[edit]

Have we developed the technology to make a new eye for someone thats blind of lost an eye, have you developed an eye thats like a perfect eye like the one your born with, that can see in 20/20 or less or better and in color? Mickman1234 (talk) 07:05, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Currently, the research is under progress to give some vision back to patients with defects in individual parts of the eye. However at this time, a "Bionic implantable eye", "starting from scratch - the one we are born with" is not commercially available. That said, many patients with different conditions can definitely be helped, depending on the individual problem. If you have such a patient, please do contact a qualified eye specialist for possible options. EyeMD T|C 17:50, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Ophthalmology topics[edit]

Hi EyeMD, I'm glad you recieved my email.

There was a post on the talk page for WikiProject Medicine for a review of a topic. I think it was recurrent corneal erosion. You may view the post here.

Thanks for your swift reply! —CyclonenimT@lk? 18:29, 19 August 2008 (UTC)


Dear EyeMD,If you have time and are willing to share your point of view. Can you give your comment arguments about the current discussion in the bates method article. Paragraph : Elwin Marg was an optometrist  ! appreciate your comment, Discussion is about whether or not the profession of Elwin Marg should be mentioned in the external link section. Seeyou (talk) 21:51, 23 August 2008 (UTC)


Do you know what Floaters are? My mom has them. Mickman1234 (talk) 07:24, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Mickman, Please see the following article:
If the problem continues, please show her to an eye specialist. EyeMD T|C 20:54, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Any new eye technology like a lens transplant? Mickman1234 (talk) 20:31, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

RE:Lens transplant is called cataract surgery done by phacoemulsification. Check those out. There are videos on the net floating around also, in case you want to see how its done. EyeMD T|C 16:56, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
