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.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented to your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for newbies. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

    Good post made here. One thing I’d like to say is most professional fields consider the Bachelor Degree just as the entry level standard for an online college diploma. When Associate College diplomas are a great way to begin with, completing the Bachelors opens up many opportunities to various jobs, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available coming from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online editions of their degree programs but generally for a drastically higher price than the providers that specialize in online education programs.
