Description

I took a trip to Victoria, British Columbia and made a visit to StarFish Product Engineering.  A company who are true innovators in medical device development.  They do a lot of work in ultra sound and opthamology and use programming languages like C++ and Python.  And let me tell ya, the Canadians are just so sweet...as long as you say "Hockey" is the greatest sport ever!  Smiley

    I like the thought of high tech gear looking after things as delicate as our eyeballs. The gear is just a tool for doctors, obviously, but it seems a lot safer to me to have a clean, simple ultrasound probe like the one StarFish makes without the need to cut somebody open to find out what's wrong with their vision. Maybe I'm just squeamish about my eyes, but then I've been to Victoria and I know how many beautiful things there are to see up there!

    I don't fancy a bunch of Canandian doctors poking and proding my eyeballs, even if it is for my own good.  I don't fancy any doctor's proding my eyes for that matter.  Eyes are sensitive and its very uncomfortable.  While I can touch my own eyes with some difficulty, My reflexes close them anytime something other than me gets to close.

    Anyway, great segment, Tina.  You seem to have become 10's official in the field medical correspondant.  You asked great questions and I always come away from these segments impressed with what you have shown us.  Starfish Product Engineering is really hands on and its nice to see this kind of research and so close to home.  I don't think there's enough R&D going on in the states.  Everything here is about money, and it's really a shame.  Great reporting, Tina.  You sure do alot of traveling for for a goddess who doesn't like to fly.
