  1. ha. I like the upside-down experiment … often thought that’s how I’ve been operating for a while now … Seriously fascinating though … how for example the brain figures out what a sharp image is. I’ll add this topic to a very long list of stuff to research further. Thanks.

More interested to hear from anyone who has had this op done in Thailand recently ... particularly in Bangkok, Changmai or Uttaradit ... and of course what the actual costs were. I'll be paying for everything myself - no insur
