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.

    I’ve come across that nowadays, more and more people will be attracted to digital cameras and the field of photography. However, really being a photographer, it’s important to first commit so much of your time deciding the exact model of digicam to buy plus moving via store to store just so you could buy the most inexpensive camera of the trademark you have decided to select. But it would not end at this time there. You also have to contemplate whether you should purchase a digital digital camera extended warranty. Thanks alot : ) for the good ideas I accumulated from your weblog.

    I’ve been “no poo” for about 2 years now and find it works great. My hair is shiny and wavier than it used to be and the new growth (post no poo’) seems fine. I wash once a week in winter and about twice a week in summer. I can get by with just a rinse midweek if I am in a hurry. I do find that a COLD rinse at the end of the washing/rinsing session is key to keeping my hair manageable. Without it I get more tangles and more breakage.

    Baking powder is just baking soda with a an acid added in (in cooking baking soda won’t react until an acid is added adn baking powder is substituted in recipes without acids). I would assume that you could use the baking powder instead of baking soda but use less of it because it will cause your scalp to be more greasy the way lemon juice or vinegar would if you were putting it on your scalp.
