Dr. Trattler and Dr. Loh recent- ly welcomed their newest family member, Daniel, who was born in mid-December. Dr. Trattler noted that their upcoming ophthalmic meeting obligations may change slightly with a newborn. "Our near- term free time is going to be focus- ing on our son," he said. They usually go to more than 15 meetings a year and still plan to travel. Dr. Loh admitted that some- times it is hard to balance every- thing, but she said their shared work and interests helps at meetings. Dr. Trattler agreed. "If either of us was in a different field, it would be difficult if we had competing meetings," he said, adding that all the meetings help them become better doctors because there is so much to learn. The collaboration onsite with friends, colleagues, and industry is great, he said, and they feel fortunate to have meetings as the springboard to talk, learn, and debate because the field is dynamic and always changing. Dr. Trattler said that they are both adventurous and enjoy activi- ties like skiing, white water rafting, hiking, ziplining, and horseback riding. Sometimes they're able to do these activities with friends in and around meetings, like kayaking with whales in Hawaii. "We get a lot of energy from our friends and col- leagues," Dr. Trattler said. "The field of ophthalmology and the people make us better in so many ways. We're lucky to have such a strong network of friends." They often joke that they see their friends from other parts of the country more often than they see friends locally, Dr. Loh said. "It gives you a strong network of support both personally and for your profes- sional career."
