They Come in Threes

My mentor in the Indian Health Service, CAPT Jerry Sherer, O.D. F.A.A.O, always used to tell me, “They always come in threes.”

“They” meaning unusual eye conditions that you have to manage within a short period. The other week, I had another example. Usually it’s some variety of red eye, but this time I had 3 cases of keratoconus…all in the same day…and two of them were back-to-back. And no, the individuals were unrelated.

So my question is, why do they come in threes? What is it about the universe that makes them come in threes? Do other health professionals see the same deal with threes? I’ll have to Google these questions and report back later.
