“Mondays are my scheduled surgery days so I will be operating during the day of the solar eclipse," said Joshua Mali, MD, The Eye Associates, Sarasota, FL. "However, I may try to enjoy this amazing natural phenomenon in between surgical cases. If I finish my cases early, I will view the solar eclipse with my wife, Yasmin.
"Naturally as a retinal surgeon, I have received many inquiries regarding optimal viewing tips for the solar eclipse from family, friends, patients, and media outlets," Dr. Mali said. "It is a pleasure educating people on all the safety aspects in order for everyone to enjoy this wonderful event!”
