    If they 3D printed a model eyeball then I'd pay a tenner for that. I always thought that about those creepy 3D baby scan places. If they'd make one out of stretchy rubber, like Stretch Armstrong, maybe stick a squeaker in it, then yeah, I'd pay for that. But 400 quid for a photo? Shove it.

    They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. I don't think it is possible to photograph a black hole.

    Our optician offers that as well. My wife has a problem with her retina and it does enable the optician to track it and see if there are changes so does offer value for 10, which seems to be the standrad fee.

    They take retinal photos anyway as part of the standard process, seems unlikely that this will add much. I'll see if they can see the very obvious peau d'orange and angioid streaks on mine - my first optician could see them just by looking, but never mentioned them because he thought I was 'just weird'!

    I just found a crossword clue that let me know that Milton Keynes is an anagram of "Monkeys let in."
    Quite apt, I thought.
