Squinting Super-Models And Other Diner Table Chat
I can share with you that as well as the menu (which was somewhat unusual), holidays, and Alena and Ana Rita’s bag snatching adventure – there were a couple of sight related topics which I found fascinating at the London Vision Clinic team dinner.
One can only speculate at what those early practitioners in far-flung corners of the globe would have made of the laser equipment and artificial lens placement techniques now available. I hope that some versions of this crucial equipment might be reasonably manoeuvrable and transportable. The incoming president of the ESCRS, José Güell, has expressed a desire to continue and even expand the organisation’s support of bringing 21st century cataract surgery to under developed countries.
I have chosen to mention the other piece of “eye-related” dining table conversation because it made me feel good… it turns out that Kate Moss and (it just keeps getting better) many other super-models do not have it all in the looks department after all. Shame!
Who knew that –although very pleasing in terms of being photogenic – wide set eyes are far from ideal where actual seeing is concerned? I was rather happy to learn that many of these gorgeous girls, (including Kate and Claudia Schiffer to name just two) in fact have a squint. It might not be noticeable to us mere mortals; but it is something that ophthalmologists can spot and also discuss with delight … well, the female ones anyway!
