Antioxidants For Eye Health — In Particular The Retina.

by Anura Guruge

To be honest I am not really sure whether all this recent talk about ‘vitamins’, supplements and antioxidants for eye health has any real basis or whether it is just another ploy by the pharmaceutical industry to get us to spend money on things we don’t need.

However, I have enough problems with my eyes and I am desperate to retain the vision I have for as long as possible — knowing full well that down the road I will end up with some level of serious impairment.

So when my new eye doctor, Eugene Baylus, of ‘Capital Vision Center’, Concord, NH, tells me that I should take ‘eye vitamins’ I don’t have the luxury of ignoring him. I don’t want to give him the opportunity to say, “told ya to take care of your eyes”.

So for the last 3 months I have been taking these. Yes, I did some research. These are supposed to be the VITAL ‘stuff’ I must ingest. Here is the link to the Amazon listing.

Then yesterday I get a newsletter from ‘Capital Vision Center‘, via e-mail, that contained this.

I though I should share it with you. Click here for the full original.

Uno Pizzeria & Grill’s New ‘High Seas Mojito’ Is Scrumptious.

by Anura Guruge

In addition to the spectacular display of flowers and the ultra-filling “Whole HOG Burger” (for big eaters like me) this was the OTHER serendipitous find when we stopped by Concord, N.H. Uno’s for lunch on Thursday — after I went to get my eyes tested by Dr. Eugene Baylus of “Capital Vision Center“. 

That is one heck of a refreshing, easy-on-the-palate drink. Goes down a treat. This Mint Mojito, if I am not careful, could finally trip me over the edge to becoming a dedicated dipsomaniac. It really is good.

You must try it out. Highly recommended — and what was the last time I recommended a drink, other than, of course, Beaujolais Nouveau?

Enjoy. Cheers.

P.S., I found a RECIPE for YOU.

Dr. Eugene Baylus Of ‘Capital Vision Center’, Concord, NH — Is A Very Proficient & Pleasant Optometrist.

Vision testing machines not including the really NEAT NIDEK Phoropter (a.k.a. ‘refractor’) they also use. See below. This image as is the picture of the external sign by Anura Guruge (from his Panasonic Lumix LX100).

If you are a regular reader you will know that I always maintained that Dr. James Eakin, who alas passed away in August 2014 (way too prematurely), was, indubitably, THE BEST eye doctor in Central New Hampshire. With Jim’s passing we were in a lurch. We all went to Jim for our eye care (though I had to go somewhere for my bionic contacts). We tried a ‘local’ optometrist, up here ‘in the Lakes’, and was NOT happy. I had also got very disillusioned with the ‘fancy’ Manchester eye care place that saw me for my contacts — the only impressive thing about them being the outright audacity of their bills.

Deanna asked around, using her reach on Facebook, and heard about “Capital Vision Center“. We have now been there twice. Once in February for Deanna and yesterday, April 5th, so that Teischan (10) could get contacts. Both times we saw Dr. Baylus and he has impressed me, immensely. Given my dodgy eyes (despite my “Eagle Eyes” nickname) I am no stranger to eye doctors and I am rather particular. I have seen specialist in legendary Harley Street (in London) and Boylston Street (in Boston). Well, I am going to go see Dr. Baylus next. We have had a few conversations, about eyes, and I like his style.


I think this is the Digital Phoropter he uses. I could be wrong. It is pretty similar to this. Click to ENLARGE.

PLUS, they have ALL the latest technology — machines that I have only seen in Boston (though the place I was going to in Boylston St. had some of these machines 15 years ago). They use Digital Phoropters. That is so neat. The old analog phoropters, though visually and mechanically appealing, always seemed way too complicated for what they were trying to do. I would often have this conversation with eye doctors. Standing there adjusting all those knobs and sticking external lenses into holders just seemed so inefficient. Love the concept of the digital phoropter (and I am sure they are not cheap). I also think that they probably can be made to do more than they are currently used for — e.g., I am sure that they, with a bit more technology, could automatically, come up with the optimum prescription for your eyes.

Anyhow. This place is impressive and Dr. Baylus, from what I have seen so far, knows his stuff. I am not sure that I am willing, as yet, to pass on Jim’s mantle over to him but he is the only one in the running for now.


A beautiful example of an old analog phoropter, from Wikipedia, if you had no idea what I was talking about. Click to ENLARGE and goggle. I am going to check ebay to see how much an old one is. Would make a real neat wall hanging.
