Eye tuneup

Today was a good day.

As I have written about before I got my eyes fixed for cataracts back in 2008, a very minor surgery that removes the lens in your eye and replaces it with a fixed plastic lens, combined with glasses that articial lens can give you real hawk vision, well at least compared to my old standards.

Anywho I have been feeling for the last couple of weeks that my vision had been deteriorating again, and I was scared that it had something to do with my new glasses. This is not a health problem as much as it is a finacial one, i was never worried for anything else than the health of my wallet in this case.. really .. did..not. want to purchase new glasses again if the strength in my eyes suddenly had changed.

That was not the case however, it got bad enough for me to apply for an emergency eye exam yesterday, and they took me in for a checkup today. Turns out my left eye had something called ‘after-cataracts’ (efterstarr in swedish). It’s pretty cool how the body works, if the lens is removed from the eye, the body will actually try to grow back a new lens, complete with cataract and all. I remembered the long months of waiting for my previous operation, so It was with some trepidation I asked the doctor how ‘after-cataracts’ got treated. The answer was quite unexpected. “we do it with laser treatment, and if you step this way we are going to do it right now!”.

2 minutes later i was standing in the corridor again, with the cataracts visibly swimming around in my eye, lasered away from the lens by expert hands. And I could see the difference at once. Pretty cool eh? Highest marks for the swedish welfare system today, 5 out of 5.

    It is my belief that mesothelioma is actually the most fatal cancer. It has unusual characteristics. The more I actually look at it a lot more I am persuaded it does not respond like a true solid cells cancer. If mesothelioma is actually a rogue viral infection, in that case there is the prospects for developing a vaccine and also offering vaccination for asbestos uncovered people who are at high risk regarding developing future asbestos relevant malignancies. Thanks for revealing your ideas for this important health issue.
