A crowd gathered at Gobbler's Knob early this morning, awaiting the emergence of the groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil. After a tap of a cane on Phil's tree-trunk cage, his door was opened, and the animal emerged.
He was held aloft to cheers and applause. Phil did not respond, other than to blink. Placed on top of the trunk, he attempted to flee before his actions were closely analyzed.
Interpreting Phil's behavior, the Groundhog Club emcee proclaimed, "There is no shadow to be cast! An early spring is my forecast!"

Ada Vision Center offers specialized services for vision therapy, vision training and treatment of eye diseases.
Correct your vision while you sleep with Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT). Imagine you just woke up from a restful night's sleep. As you open your eyes, you can see clearly, you're not wearing your glasses or contacts... and you haven't had surgery. If you want freedom from the hassles of daytime contact lenses and glasses, Paragon CRT is right for you. Paragon CRT is a specially designed therapeutic contact lens that gently and temporarily reshapes the cornea while you sleep. The staff at Ada Vision Center is excited to provide this safe, effective, new technology to our patients. Our doctors at Ada Vision Center are a few of only a handful of doctors in the state of Idaho who have been officially certified to design and fit the Paragon CRT therapeutic lens.
Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a procedure used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. During this procedure, patients are given numbing eye drops and a flap is created on the superficial layer of the cornea with an instrument called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser. An excimer laser then uses a cool beam of laser light to gently sculpt your spectacle correction onto the front surface of the eye. The flap is then returned to its original position. The laser spends a matter of seconds reshaping the eye and many patients notice an improvement in their vision as they exit the surgical center.
If you've been told in the past that you cannot wear contact lenses because of an irregular cornea or other problems, you may want to get a second opinion and ask your eye doctor about scleral contact lenses.*
Scleral contacts are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the "white" of the eye (sclera). In doing so, scleral lenses functionally replace the irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct vision problems caused by keratoconus and other corneal irregularities.
