I've only had my Kindle for a couple of months but I discovered a real advantage the other day.  I suddenly developed an eye problem requiring a lens implant and the nurse was telling me that I should work puzzles to make my eye adapt to the new lens.  I told her I read a lot and have a Kindle and as she didn't know what I meant, pulled it out to show her.  She was amazed and agreed that if I used the print size and varied it, it would be wonderful 'training' for my eye. 

Another excuse to buy one....

Pat..:)

Now we just have to figure out how to get our eye surgeon to prescribe one...

Me too, Jim but I couldn't seem to spell it correctly so I opted for the easy way out!

Ah Hah!  After rereading your post I see (said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw).  Perhaps the ability to perform eye surgery will be a feature of Kindle v2.0?

OK... that's twice. Are you all of a sudden trying to be nice to me or something?

Have I slipped into an alternate dimension?

Whatever re-alignment of the stars has brought this on... thanks. I welcome it. :)

Jim, I did use an opthalmic surgeon and this was his nurse.  I wish I could claim it as a deduction, but I already had it. 

Maybe a few books for training purposes?

My hematologist took it away from me and asked many questions while seeing if he could read his journals on the web.  He spent more time on it than on my checkup!

ophthalmologist

It took me almost as long to learn to spell that as it did for otorhinolaryngologist

Hello Pat and welcome. I had eye surgery a year and a half ago and love reading on the Kindle. I have even had an improvement in my dry eye condition. I am blinking more with the kindle than I do on the computer or reading a DTB.
