IN 5 MINUTES and $25, HE LETS THE BLIND SEE

It saddens and frustrates me to think of the probability of this procedure costing exponentially as much if/when it finally gets implemented here in the US, but what a tremendous boon for the people who are helped by this Nepali ophthalmologist.

"In the United States, cataract surgery is typically performed with complex machines. But these are unaffordable in poor countries, so Dr. Ruit built on the work of others (including the Aravind Eye Care System in India, a superb institution that performed 280,000 cataract surgeries last year) to pioneer and refine small-incision microsurgery to remove cataracts without sutures.

At first, skeptics denounced or mocked his innovations. But then the American Journal of Ophthalmology published a study of a randomized trial finding that Dr. Ruit’s technique had exactly the same outcome (98 percent success at a six-month follow-up) as the Western machines. One difference was that Dr. Ruit’s method was much faster and cheaper.

“The results are fantastic,” said Dr. Geoffrey Tabin, an eye specialist at the University of Utah’s Moran Eye Center. Dr. Tabin learned the technique from Dr. Ruit and was in Hetauda as well, removing cataracts beside Dr. Ruit, and he says the results in rural Nepal using this technique are as good as those of his patients in Salt Lake City paying for first-class care and benefiting from almost $1 million in the latest medical equipment..."

Evocative Photos of Miniature Paper Cuttings Recall Cambodia's Painful Past - My Modern Met
When Cambodian artist Remissa Mak was only seven years old, he fled his home in Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh, after Khmer Rouge troops occupied the city on April 17, 1975. With the earsplitting sounds of gunshots still ringing in their ears, Mak and his family joined the crowds of people chased from the razed city by armed soldiers. Exhausted but forced to continue onward, innocent civilians faced extreme drought and sources of drinking water l...

Hi People.

Conventional thinking says we must use a short / wide lens to shoot landscapes. But why not try something usually associated with portrait photography?

Best wishes - MIKE
