I was talking to our eye surgeon at breakfast and casually asked, impressed, if he was going to be doing his usual 30 cataracts today. He said no, as he also had some other surgeries today including crossed eyes and eye removals.
So, of course that got us onto prosthetic eyes and where they come from. In more developed nations, when a crossed eye is fitted a great deal of time, expense and trial goes into finding the right color, etc and so there are extra eyes available for people like us who can use them for our patients.
Don't you think it is interesting?
So much goes on that I am totally unaware of and a casual conversation at breakfast may have me pondering it many times during the day.
Another changed life...
