"I used to have 20/20 vision, but now have lost 80% of my vision."
"The optometrist expressed extreme urgency to see a specialist,
I had 30 holes in the retina.
I had to have a laser beam hit the optic nerve in the eye (Horrible pain)
so I wouldn't go blind." 4-17-03
Talk to your own doctor... they can know what you need. state
"All of the workers at end of season, 1989,
had come down with open sores in our mouths,
like one aborted, but rescued baby seal had, end of season."

From a household cleaning product MSDS which contained up to 10% 2-butoxyethanol:
