What is the image of an ideal doctor which you have in mind? Does it resemble somebody who can explain complex surgeries using a song like that ‘Lungi Dance’? Or somebody who is doing a sword dance to explain another surgery?

A special session which was both informative as well as fun was conducted on the third day of the Bombay Ophthalmologists’ Association (BOA)’s FOCUS 2017 conference. ‘Ophthalmologists’ Premier League’ (OPL) was the title of this session. Doctors had to creatively explain a difficult case in which they have encountered as an ophthalmologist.
