I'm moving back to Germany.

I talked to a Professor in Berlin last week and found out that Germany has a chronic amount of blind people who aren't getting proper care because optometrists aren't "legal" there, yet.

Therefore, if I go there now, hopefully I can be at the forefront when it finally becomes a recognized profession. I will become Das Optometrist. (Actually, Der Optometrist, but it doesn't have the same ring to it)

So, if you guys find yourself in Hamburg, hit me up. We can go have a few beers, play blackjack and get us some hookers. Not necessarily in that order.

There's a difference between illegal and not being a legally recognised field

German Ophthalmologists think Optometrists would take their business away.

In reality, it's just harmful to the public not to have Optometrists. It takes 3 months to get an appointment to an eye doctor.

I though Optometrist were more about giving glasses and laser surgery and the other one is like a eye surgeon.

WTF? I though Germans were smart? You can invent turbos and build Porsche and Benz but don't realize that Optometry is extremely necessary?

So much WTF!

Basically. But we can diagnose all sorts of things, so if you have a disease that will make you blind in 10-20 years, we'll send you to the right people to give you the right meds.

Yeah. I know. Ridiculous. It's not the first time I heard someone say that.

So you work in conjunction with the Ophthalmologists. How do they not see that?

Optometry got the boot when we got rid of that four-eyes, Himmler.

The last time a guy moved to Germany to be at the forefront of something it didn't turn out that great, are you planning the mass genocide of blind people ?
