In this tenth episode, Dr. Suh takes a departure from his usual format to interview his ophthalmology residency director and chairman, Dr. John Barber, about the three books he has written since retirement.
His first book, The Joy of Medical Practice: Forty Years of Interesting Patients, is about the many interesting patients he has encountered from his medical school years to his last years in practice.
In his second book, Hey, Doc! What’s Wrong with My Eye?: A General Guide to Eye Symptoms, Dr. Barber writes about common symptoms and diseases of the eye and discusses treatments.
Some common causes of red eyes include:
Dr. Barber’s last book is The One-Eyed Surgeon with Only One Thumb: Adventures with My Dad, Harry C. Barber, MD, FACS. He chronicles stories that his father told him as he was growing up. He recounts his life as a physician/surgeon in a small town and in Greenland during World War II.
You can find all of Dr. Barber's books on his website.
