Ophthalmology has so many alien abbreviations, it’s like they have their own specialty.  Thanks to the recent discovery of a missing piece of the Rosetta Stone, we have recently gained some insight into their world.  But there’s another helpful source: internists.  Gomerblog asked them to explain some ophtho abbreviations, and they were only too happy to help!

Dr. 99
First there was Dr. 01, the first robot physician, created to withstand toxic levels of burnout in an increasingly mechanistic and impossibly demanding healthcare field. Dr. 99 builds upon the advances of its ninety-eight predecessors by phasing out all human emotion, innovation, and creativity completely, and focusing solely on pre-programmed protocols and volume-based productivity. In its spare time, Dr. 99 enjoys writing for Gomerblog and listening to Taylor Swift.
