Lets take a moment to Relax!

It's Wednesday folks mid week and we all need a moment to sit down and have a breather from time to time, especially those who play world of Warcraft, today can be a very busy day.

I play from time to time and found it's good to take a nice break, sit back and relax because its oh so too easy to find your self stressing and playing too much! as we all know The new expansion is on the horizon and with it bring new adventures to everyone who enjoys this great game, but as we move on lets take a moment to look back and reflect on the game this past year, namely the end of one of the longest wow villains that many people have come to love, The Lich king!

He was defiantly one of the more fun active boss's of the Warcraft universe, he defiantly made you feel a bit more immersed in the world! I found a little video which I think is a nice tribute to him


Blowing the horn!

Remember the Vuvuzela craze during the world cup?

Greetings gentlemen!

Hello there and welcome to the Super Adventure blog, a place for super adventure from all around the internet, I've never really done a blog before so its all new to me so as I go I'll probably get more in to it. and decide where I want to take it

I'll leave you with a little video to kick off the blog and set the mood,

stay classy

You should really check your eyes

Hello and welcome to my Blog, I've just started up, and have no idea what to talk about,  so I chose something that I've recently looked in to my self. I've spent the majority of my life being short sighted and often felt that this has held me back a lot. having that unsure feeling whenever you find your self in a situation with out glasses, the lack of any confidence when going out, I was fed up with it all and wanted a new lease on life, so I bit the bullet and looked in to surgery, so then here's a few points if you should conciser looking in to it.

Laser eye surgery: what is it?

Local anaesthetic drops are placed in the eye being treated. A knife is used to cut a flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back to reveal the middle part of the cornea. Pulses from a laser vaporise a portion of this and the flap is replaced.
An eye patch is usually worn over the treated eye for 24 hours.
Both eyes can be treated on the same day, but your consultant should outline the risks. In order to reduce the risk of cross contamination should complications arise, each eye should be treated as separate procedure.

Why is it carried out?

Doctors use a laser to permanently change the shape of the cornea, the clear covering over the coloured iris, and the lens, which is just behind the pupil of the eye. People need to wear glasses for different reasons. Some people are said to be short-sighted or myopic. This is due to the cornea being too steeply curved or the eye longer than normal. Therefore, light rays fall in short of the retina - the area at the back of the eye that interprets the image - and results in blurred distance vision.
Other people are long-sighted or hyperopic because their cornea is too flat or the eye is too short. This means that the light rays focus too far beyond the retina. Others have a condition where the cornea is oval shaped rather than spherical, called astigmatism. This produces two different focal points which can blur images at all distances.
Laser surgery to reshape the cornea can help to correct these problems.

What are the risks

Complications occur in less than 5 per cent of cases, according to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. Some people have a problem with dry eyes in the months after surgery and artificial tear supplements might be needed in the long term.
Many patients have experienced glare or halo effects when night driving, particularly just after treatment. This is more likely the higher the correction that has been made, but is rarely severe. In rare cases, excessive thinning of the eye wall can cause the shape of the eye to be unstable after treatment. Severe loss of vision is very unusual, but some patients could require corneal surgery or hard contact lenses to restore vision, it said.

Is it a common procedure?

Yes. Private treatment usually costs £1000-1500 per eye and is available at some NHS hospitals. It is important to check the qualifications of the surgeon performing the operation as the Royal College of Ophthalmologists recommends that the doctor should be a fully trained ophthalmic surgeon and also have undertaken additional training in laser eye surgery. Some surgeons may also be NHS Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons which means they will have completed at least 8 years of training and also be familiar with a wide range of eye diseases and problems.

Is there a long-term impact?

Most patients have a reasonably comfortable period after surgery and are back at work within a few days to a week. Depending on the vision correction attempted, driving may be unsafe for one to two weeks. Tinted glasses with ultraviolet protection are needed when out in the sun for the first three months.
Laser surgery will not be able to cure age-related presbyopia and the need for reading glasses that people often develop in their mid-40's. This is because presbyopia is not to do with a problem with the cornea. Instead, it occurs when the lens becoming less flexible with age.

well I really hope you found this article informative, and gives you an informed opinion on if you should go ahead or not,  I know I will be eventually and look forward to seeing the world in all its 20/20 vision glory!

Stay classy
