    Telstra Best Of Business Awards

    My company was lucky enough to win a state award in the Championing Health category for Tasmania. I am heading up to Sydney, with my wife, for the National awards next week. So far the whole process has been very good and very smooth and professional. It will seem rather strange to be flying...

    AFF Tasmania - Newcastle replacement 23/24 October

    Maybe from myself. Lots of extremely busy weeks and weekends in the next couple of months. So can not commit 100% at this stage. Still have other things to complete, but I hope to get them done by then,

    Good plan from the surgeon for sure! Great to hear. If you get any dry eye irritation during the post op phase, ( common) try Systane Hydration unit dose drops 3-4 times a day, they are post op approved and get great feedback on their ability to improve symptoms.

    The type of cataract after vitrectomy is typically a nuclear cataract, but with rapid progression. Only late stage nuclear cataracts prevent with milky vision tbh. The stress and trauma on the lens leads to oxidative stress, not a starvation issue. This is the proposed pathway. Here is a pretty...

    Out at Cambridge? Then no, I did dine at the degustation part of the city Lounge once, was an event but very expensive.

    New cars are in very short supply due to the world wide shortage of computer chips. Same thing for ps5 etc and new computers etc. so they are struggling to buy new ones

    Yes the information I have had coming in via my patients over the last couple of weeks is that hotels are full, restaurants are to capacity most nights. Just crazy, and don’t get me started on the crazy hire car prices.

    Virgin Australia Business Class - Meals, Menus & Service

    Hard to believe my post, the one just prior to yours, was the last post in this thread for 2020. My wife was worried about my trip to attend a covid planning workshop, so i upgraded/used vouchers to go business class. What a contrast with what they offer now.

    The oil is generally scheduled for removal after an appropriate time. All vision is radically disturbed by the vitrectomy and gas/oil bubble. This sometimes takes weeks and months to settle. Yes side effect of cataract is almost 100% seen within a year. So any major diopter vision shifts are...

    SYD-BNE Saturday morning zucchini fritter and halloumi, bacon. Flight was half full. 1584473967 Monday morning BNE-HBA almost full flight, went for the Bircher muesli again with blueberries this time. Not the same wow factor as the last Bircher I had on Saturday but quite nice anyway.

    [Cancelled] SIN lounge crawl 7 June 2020

    With the announcement today of Qantas cutting 90% capacity till end of May I suspect many airlines will also follow. My ten cents wrt the 14 day isolation thing, it will likely be increased to 21 days as we get on top of the new virus. Also expect significant further disruption to travel...
