A middle aged lady from Seoul,

had come in to show her macular hole.

Over weekends and holidays,

she loved to sun-gaze.

Her hobby had taken its toll!

In came a historical man from Cairo,

whose angles were found to be narrow.

It was his aging lens,

which was swollen and dense.

A quick 'phaco' soon relieved the pharaoh!

A feisty old diabetic from Hiroshima,

Had made up her own treatment schema.

She demanded Avastin,

to make her retina thin.

She surely knew how to treat her edema!

There was an old lady from Mozambique,

who had a problem, very unique.

A head tilt gave her trouble,

And she saw everything double.

All she had was a weak superior oblique!

And flew in a rich 'sheikh' from Dubai,

whose pressures had gone sky high!
"I can't drive my Audi,

my corneas-they're cloudy!"

Turns out all he needed was a Yag PI.
