Symfony: A New Revolution in Ophthalmology (2)

August 23, 2016 at 6:24 pm

Part 1 Furor or not, it’s understood that not everyone will want them, and the lenses are on short supply, so the spread of these new lenses is limited to those surgeons in the most advantageous areas.  The company has set who will be their main contact in each city and county, and I modestly  Continue Reading »

Do You Have a Twin?

August 19, 2016 at 4:08 am

A friend once sent me the portrait of an English king which shook me to the core, for the simple reason that it looked like me. There’s no doubt that the real king was as different from me as any stranger, but this portrait… the resemblance was objectively there. The theme of doppelgangers is also  Continue Reading »

Symfony:  A New Revolution in Ophthalmology

August 17, 2016 at 2:23 am

As soon as I read in the news that we are starting to explore Tecnis’ new artificial lens, which provides high-quality vision near and far, with high contrast even in low light, I called the Benjamin Eye Institute immediately, forgetting that it was a Sunday.  Nevertheless, Arthur Benjamin called me right back. I wasn’t disappointed:  Continue Reading »

Allergies and Artificial Tears (part 2)

August 13, 2016 at 1:47 am

I didn’t know, by the way, that people could be allergic to dogs.  Cats are a common allergy.  What’s the difference?  Allergies to cats are caused by their saliva, but with dogs it is typically on the skin.  If we suspect allergic conjunctivitis, we conduct a very safe and effective 20-minute test.  Thanks to a  Continue Reading »

Today at Benjamin Eye Institute: I picked up a bee

August 5, 2016 at 2:59 am

Just the other day, we said that July 20th, 2016, would never happen again.  Incidentally, the 4th of August won’t happen again, either.  So how did this unforgettable day go, here at Benjamin Eye? On the front lines, Mayka (a beautiful Slovakian name) writes down something important.  Aleksander then either receives the patient or checks  Continue Reading »

Allergies, Dryness, and Artificial Tears (1)

August 2, 2016 at 4:45 am

We spoke with Arthur Benjamin on what might seem to be normal topics for an ophthalmologist, but it amazed me; maybe you will be amazed, as well.  What do people commonly complain about, other than loss of vision?  One of the most common complaints is itchy eyes.  Although many people specifically come for farsightedness, nearsightedness,  Continue Reading »

Today at BEI

July 28, 2016 at 2:29 am

Day-to-day, things may not seem all that special.  We cannot forget, though, that every day is unique, and that July 27th, 2016, will never happen again.  So how did we spend the day at Benjamin Eye Institute, you may ask?  Well, from here on out, we will be reporting from the scene. We’ve got them  Continue Reading »

Is Our Planet Going Blind?

July 27, 2016 at 1:53 am

According to a study published in Ophthalmology, nearsightedness will soon become almost-endemic. By 2050, half of humanity will have poor vision, as opposed to the “only” 2 billion people that suffered from vision impairments in 2010.  Earth is going to become a planet of the half-blind. We have read something about a “cancer epidemic”, so  Continue Reading »

How I Saw Six-and-a-Half Moons (part 2)

July 22, 2016 at 4:40 am

Part 1 “Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star”. W. Clement Stone So the point is…?  It turns out that people with depression have a harder time distinguishing contrast.  The reason that the world appears grey or blue to someone is associated with this phenomenon (hence, “feeling blue”). Is it  Continue Reading »
