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.

    Thanks pertaining to discussing your thinking. I’d individually also love to express that game titles have been actually evolving. Better technology and innovations have caused it to be easier to make sensible and interactive online games. These kind of entertainment video gaming were less sensible if the real concept was initially being experimented with. Just such as other patterns of technology, video games as well have was required to evolve through many ages. This itself is testimony to the fast growth of video gaming.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I have to show some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of such a incident. Just after scouting through the search engines and obtaining views that were not powerful, I assumed my entire life was gone. Living devoid of the solutions to the problems you have sorted out through your good article content is a critical case, as well as ones that might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not encountered the website. Your own personal skills and kindness in taking care of all areas was tremendous. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. It’s possible to at this time relish my future. Thank you very much for this reliable and result oriented help. I will not think twice to recommend your blog to any person who would need guidance about this area.
