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.

Most of these changes in focusing length tend to be reflected within the viewfinder and on huge display screen right on the back of the particular camera.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
