Retina Is for the Birds
Hawks have more than one fovea and a cornea that changes shape to sharpen focus on prey. Who knew? Well, one retina doctor did. James C. Major Jr, MD, PhD, joins us for an episode to review his early contributions to animal imaging. But the story is bigger than that. Dr. Major's journey illustrates that a marriage between two passions-in his case, the blossoming world of optical coherence tomography in the early 2000s and an ornithological hobby-can send a retina doctor down uncharted paths of scientific discovery.
