This year's World Series is historic in that the two top teams have a history of being in the bottom. Focus Vision Supplements isn't choosing sides, but our Account Manager Laura Mills is:
A lifetime of progress has been made since 1908: we've built the Titanic, women have the right to vote, we've been to the moon, and we've invented sliced bread. And yet, some things haven't changed over the past 100+ years, like Chicago's beloved losers the Cubs (or "da Cubbies" as my family says.) The last time the Cubs won a World Series, the players were wearing leather helmets (if any) because plastic wasn't widely yet used, especially not in sports protection.
Many advances have been made in eye health over the past 100+ years as well. A majority of procedures could only take place during daylight hours because of limited visibility with gas lighting. The practice of washing one's hands prior to surgery was slowly gaining traction in Europe but hadn't yet been implemented widely in the United States. And yet one of the first surgical cures for glaucoma took place in 1905 when Dr. Harvey Cushing, MD performed an extirpation of the superior cervical ganglion. His patient reported positive results and it was considered a great success.
It's amazing to look back on the advances we've made over 100+ years. And yet, even after all this time, my family will still stand and say, "Lets root root root for the Cubbies, if they don't win it's a shame.."
And as an added bonus, here is our Focus Vision Supplements team at Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch during AAO Chicago 2016:
