Today we visited him to celebrate his new lot in life. He has set up shop specifically in this small town because it is located half-way between Umeå and Skellefteå. With no local optician, the visually impaired have previously had to travel long distances to be fitted with glasses--but no more! Now they can drive to their friendly-neighborhood optician and ask his advice.

As you can see, my uncle, having already filled his schedule with appointments, is well on his way to becoming an established fixture of the community, a pillar of good sense and glasses.
