The chiropractor was old and almost blind, but he gave me more relief than most of them did. How much of that was from his machine that sent sparks into my back I will never know.

Perhaps he was almost blind from using UV type devices for too long?

Chances are my centre-of-vision problem has an historical origin in some experiments that I did many years ago that involved striking an arc. Days before health and safety at work was quite so strict, no safety assessments or onus on employers to provide the correct gear.

My ophthalmologist always mentions macular degeneration when I get an eye exam. Likely cause of damage was my propensity to light magnesium on fire. It puts out light in the UV when it burns, besides being really bright when it burns. It doesn't seem to have progressed in the last 30 years, so that bright fire probably did it.
