Watching videos on the Internet has become a popular pastime for millions of people worldwide. For ophthalmologists, it can be a great way to learn new surgical techniques. There is a surprisingly large number of Internet sites offering streaming videos of ophthalmic surgery (Figure). Ophthalmology societies, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology,1 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery,2 and European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery,3 have collections of educational videos available on their Web sites. Web sites like Eyetube.net and Eyesurgeryvideos.com feature excellent surgical videos categorized by subspecialty. Phacopearls.com is a site dedicated to phacoemulsification and related surgical techniques where you can submit your own videos to share with the world community. Industry Web sites, such as Katena's,4 also feature surgical videos. Finally, sites such as YouTube, Google, and other general video search engines can be used to search for educational videos, but you have to be careful not to get off topic.
