1000 posts/videos on CataractCoach

Back in May of 2018, I had the idea to start CataractCoach.com where I would routinely post about cataract surgery, including videos of techniques. I originally planned to do about one post/video a week, but then I challenged myself. Could I create a new post/video every single day for 1,000 days in a row without missing a day?

Well, I am happy to report that the answer is yes. Today, January 31, 2021 is post/video number 1000. I am thankful to readers like you who subscribe to our daily email (or to our youtube channel) and also submit guest videos every day. We have 19,000 subscribers and a total of more than 5,200,000 views. We also have viewers from more than 100 different countries, with the USA being number 1 in terms of viewership.

It has not been easy, but I am much better at editing and creating the videos and I am grateful for your support. We are planning on continuing the daily posts/videos into the foreseeable future. The video that I have prepared today will show you some of the important features that you can find on the CataractCoach website which will make it easier to find what you’re looking for.

  1. Uday, your dedication, expertise, and invaluable advice are much appreciated by all of us cataract surgeons. You have been our virtual surgical assistant for the last two years. Thank you so much and we look forward to the next 1000 videos. (But please take a few days off!)

  2. I did my first full cataract surgery two days ago. Patient looked great yesterday on post-op day one. Thank you for building this invaluable resource!

  3. Uday congratulations on the 1000 video in a row ! Tremendous achievement. I really enjoy the sight and have put all my own trainees on to it also for learning tips and pearls. I have learned a lot myself so thank you for both your interest and your time. Looking forward to sending another message when you reach 2000 👍👍

  4. Uday, thanks for your excellent teaching. I am in practice for 44 years and still learning thanks to you!

  5. Uday, thank you for all you do. I love how you break down cases and point out significant tips.. After the quarantine in Mar/Apr I watched so many of your videos just to get ready for that “first” case back in the OR. You are extremely talented and even though I do close to 2000/year I still learn or reinforce things you’ve already taught.
    May God bless you
