The catcher for the Atlanta Braves, Brian McCann, has been having eye trouble for a couple years now. He describes dryness and fuzziness in his right eye. He's had a Lasik or two, and he seems to be having a real hard time of it. He goes back and forth with these glasses, which fog up and annoy him during game play.
Anyway, he has a red face in some interviews. He's got pale skin, and his last name suggests some Irish/Scotch heritage. So, is that enough to make the connection to O.R.? Or are there just too many eye problems to put much stock in the suspicion?
I don't know what I could do beyond what I've already done, even if I was sure he had it. I emailed a reporter for the AJC that I thought might be the type to bring it up. But nothing came of it. I'm sure it sounded like one more long-distance diagnosis from a presumptuous fan. (Everybody's always got a solution, don't they?)
Any thoughts on this? Do you guys think that at the highest level, the eye doctors of millionaires would be likely to miss this? (Mel, aren't you an optomo... optometr... an eye person or something??). Is a red face and a "Mac" name and a dry eye enough to put most eye doctors on the scent of O.R.? Or is it hit and miss?
