EOL: Voight-Kampff

My latest check up with the eye surgeon was this morning. For the most part the grafts have healed about as well as can be expected.

Ouch: There’s nothing in my eye… Anymore!

Back in May 2007, along with a new cornea, I had 16 stitches sown into my right eye. This morning, some 29 months later, I had the remaining 12 removed. For my right eye at least, the process is almost complete (the left has 16 stitches still… oh, and a cornea). The removal of the […]

Jessica Alba: Eye Candy

After a life times worth of continual eyesight deterioration things here in the eHead have finally reached a turning point. After a string of consultations, bright lights and whacky lasers blasted into my eye sockets and enough eye drops to fill a bathtub it’s finally been decided that my corneas are friggin useless. This, of […]
