    I've just joined this group and would like to tell its members about
    my web Journal.

    For the most part, it is postings of my columns and reports about the
    beginnings of technology in ophthalmic and medical lasers, including
    refractive surgery, laser treatments for glaucoma and for age-related
    macular degeneration.

    I was a columnist for Ocular Surgery News, writing the Technology
    Update column for about ten years. I am now retired and posting some of
    my older columns so that historians and researchers will have access to
    the beginnings that I witnessed and wrote about.

    I have also recently posted about Avastin, a brand new hope for
    treating AMD - that actually stops AMD cold in its tracks and
    improves vision in many cases. The link to that posting is:

    For the rest of my online Journal, go to:

    I look forward to your comments about my postings.

    Irv, Just call it "Ophthalmic Technologies". Avastin, for example, is not
    a laser technology. And the present title might steer people away. Good

    Don, your right of course -- I just got excited when learning about
    Avastin and what it can do.

    But my Journal will/does cover a great deal of ophthalmic and laser
    technologies -- and includes some of my earlier lab experiences working
    for Arthur D. Little, including being co-inventor of the "plastic
    pencil" and flying a "lead balloon" to top Arthur Dehon Littles'
    "making a silk purse from sows ears"!
