Doctor Schedules Patient's Eye Operation To Be Streamed Online
Jun 21, 2012 15:15
If the idea of putting surgical tools in your eye doesn't sound
fascinating to you, then you might want to look away right about now.
Dr. Rivera of the Hoopes Vision Institute is scheduled to insert an implantable contact lens (ICL) operation on a female patient tomorrow. The surgery will be streamed via UStream, and will include close-ups of the actual eye
tissue as well as the tips of the surgical tools used in the procedure. Another camera will record a
wider shot of doctor and patient.
The reason for the live broadcast is to offer prospective patients a closer look at the private practice, and educate people all around the world about the corrective alternative to the more well known Lasik surgery.
The broadcast will begin at 8:30 p.m. ET with around an hour of comments by Dr. Rivera, followed by the actual procedure. Viewers will be able to submit their own questions and comments via Ustream’s chat feature, and Dr. Rivera will answer as many as possible in between narrating the operation.
