Cool, even if it was a Canon

My quite splendid optometrist has acquired a device that takes pictures of your retina.  This is good for them because they get a bunch of filters that let them see things they couldn't see before, they get a larger viewing area than with the little hand-held light-and-viewer widgets traditionally used, and they get a lasting record of what things looked like last time.

My eyes are apparently healthy and I'm still able to focus effectively, so no bifocals quite yet.  New lenses because I'm slightly less short-sighted with age.  Also, contacts, so I can have less annoyance (I hope) staring through optical devices at birds.
