Eye C U

This is my first post on this blog site.  Stuff here, as the name implies, is kind of random.

However, this past week, I started coursework for Opticianry and so for the moment, I'm going to chronicle my experiences.  I'm taking one course first, non-matric in a hyper-speed Summer session: Physiology and Anatomy of the Eye.

This material is really out of my comfort zone, since my degree is in English and my grad certificates are in Estates & Trusts and also, Computer Web Graphics.  But I love learning new things (even if they are really difficult, for diverse reasons) so I'm giving it a try.

Next Wednesday, we're doing the dissection of the eye.  I am very nervous (and not a little creeped out) because I have never actually done a dissection.  I always had crazy-boy lab partners who were more than happy to do the deed, while I just wrote up the exercises.  Not so now.  Also, it's an EYE.  As in, staring back at me!

So, hopefully things will work out.  And I'll post more about it during the week.

Guess EYE'll be seeing you.


PS - the chart above is actually called a Snellen chart.

PSS - I'm going to a local pro baseball game tonight, which has, for all intents and purposes, nothing to do with opticianry.
