My Eyes

Charlottetown Vision Centre has a nifty new gizmo that takes high-resolution photos of patients’ eyes.  It costs $18 to have done, but that’s a small price to pay for a photo that, in essence, “looks the other way” at the eye.  Indeed, trying to think about the fact that the eyes in the photos are the eyes that are looking at the photos is hurting my brain.

I’m afraid I have some bad news…

You have bloody eyes.

Interesting how they mirror each other, but not exactly. Like how our left and right finger prints differ, but gorier. I always think I’m looking at a fertilized chicken egg when I see these photos.

My son had this done years ago. It is called the Otto Map. In the pictures, they picked up “bear tracks” which indicates he is a candidate for a certain type of cancer in his future years. Now, he and his doctor are aware of this and will have the head’s up to catch this disease before it gets too far advanced.

Actually, its called an Opto-map… Dr. Hickey has had this machine for about 6 years now. Its not necessarily new technology, but it sure beats getting those drops in your eyes!! Plus, the images make pretty cool wallpaper..
