Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles Episode #7   |  ASHVIN AGARWAL: The Complexities of the Colobomatous Eye
April 2021

Watch—or listen—as the hosts and Dr. Agarwal discuss his quicksand moments, the cases that took him a few days to recover from. He reflects on difficult surgical cases: one that went wrong from the start, where MAC was chosen in lieu of general anesthesia for a cognitively challenged young patient and another involving a colobomatous eye, complicated by a mature lens and hours of missing zonules. Join us as Dr. Agarwal shares his profound surgical, clinical, and personal pearls gained through the evolution of his quicksand moments.
