• The Quotable Ophthalmologist


    “Ophthalmology: an excuse from living.” —Raymond Pekala, MD

    Wisdom from the Story Wall:

    • “Don’t get so caught up in making a living that you forget to make a life.”
    • “In the words of Woodford Van Meter, ‘If you’re thinking about doing a tarsorrhaphy, do a tarsorrhaphy!’”
    • “Don’t drink before the night of surgery.”
    • “Tears are the least-offensive of the body fluids.”
