Can ophthalmologists diagnose Temporal Arteritis?

Yes, if you find an honest ophthalmologist who cares. I actually had one tell me that Temporal Arteritis isn't seen in people in their early 60's. Is he NUTS?

On the other hand, when I was in my late 50's, I had an Optometrist tell me that an artery or vein in the temple is usually biopsied to diagnose Temporal Arteritis. He also asked me if I had eyebrow pain and jaw pain, which I did and still do--among other horrible/painful symptoms. The Optometrist was the REAL specialist.

Perhaps if some of the doctors--who put patients through hell because they choose to lie instead of diagnose diseases--would experience the same illnesses, they would wake up and do what is right for patients instead of herding them through like a bunch of cattle. Did they just take a medical oath and then leave it in the ditch, or what?

Contact Lenses

What is ortho-keratology?

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, or simply OK, is using rigid contact lenses to reshape your corneas. This enables you to wear the lenses for a period of time, take them out, and be able to see without contact lenses or glasses at all, for a period of time. ANSWERS Modern Orthokeratology is the use of specially fitted hard gas permeable extended wear contact lenses that within a few days of full time wear can remove moderate amounts of nearsightedness for short periods of time. To maintain the change the lenses are worn as retainers while sleeping and taken off during the day until the changes become more permanent. Then the lenses are worn as needed any time to remove any blur that's returning.

Writing: Characters and Dialogue

How do you write a dialogue between a doctor and a patient about eye donation?

Writing dialogue is not as hard as you're letting it seem. You have dialogue all the time -- it's called talking. If you honestly cannot think of what your characters are going to say to one another, you need to go take a break and go somewhere out in public. Sit somewhere in the middle of a crowd for one to two hours and just listen to people talking. Then, go home and write down some of the things you heard people saying. That's dialogue.

When you need to have your characters talk, just pretend it's you and a friend (or several friends), and have them say something you'd probably say in the same situation. Then imagine what your friends would say in reply, and go back and forth that way. As you become a better writer, your characters themselves will "tell" you what they want to say, because they become like real people to you.

What is the average salary for an aerospace engineere?

Salary for these positions usually really depends on experience and what part of the country you would work in, and of course if you have a PHD or just Master degree. But generally you would be wanting to look at somewhere around for a level 1 aerospace engineer is about 53k, for a level IV it would be more like 90k, now if you work in DC area you add about 40k to that where as in Florida it would be about what I mentioned above. Highest paid engineers are probably chemical and civil. Now I am a system engineer with about 5 years experience and with my company I make about 80k. So you can see it really varies with company, need, education and experience level and location. Hope that helps.

What does an opthamologist do?

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine which deals with the diseases and surgery of the visual pathways, including the eye, hairs, and areas surrounding the eye, such as the lacrimal system and eyelids. The term ophthalmologist is an eye specialist for medical and surgical problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are considered to be both a surgical and medical specialty.

The word ophthalmology comes from the Greek roots ophthalmos meaning eye and logos meaning word, thought or discourse; ophthalmology literally means "the science of eyes". "Opthomology" is a common mis-hearing or mis-remembering of the term. As a discipline, it applies to animal eyes also, since the differences from human practice are surprisingly minor and are related mainly to differences in anatomy or prevalence, not differences in disease processes. However, veterinary medicine is regulated separately in many countries and states/provinces resulting in few ophthalmologists treating both humans and animals.

What should you major in to become an ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist is a physician. First, there is no such thing as a degree in pre-med. It is a curriculum layout or sometimes referred to as a tract, which prepares students who intend to seek admission to medical schools. It includes activities such as prerequisite coursework, clinical experience, volunteer activities, and research.

While many individuals who pursue a career as a physician major in biology at the undergraduate level, many others come from a variety of other educational backgrounds. The best major should be based on a contingency plan. In other words, what happens if you do not go to medical school? What will you be able to do with the degree that you have, and will it provide you with a satisfying career or career path? You should meet with a career counselor at the college or university you attend for what options exist for you. Whichever major you choose, the critical issue is acquiring the appropriate prerequisite coursework required by medical schools. The student should have a strong background in the following areas.

  • Biology (cell biology, biology of the organism)
  • Chemistry (inorganic, organic)
  • Physics
  • Communication (written and oral)
  • Higher level math's (algebra, trigonometry, calculus)
  • Computer literacy
  • Development of good critical thinking skills.

What if you earned less money when you filed for bankruptcy but before you get a discharge you get a raise and make a lot more than you were making?

Technically you should inform your trustee or the court that you received the raise so they can adjust the figures. I think it depends on the trustee on whether or not they continually check your financial satus.
