Is your computer down, or your left click is now your right click? Yep, Mike is the guy for all that. He may even help you out putting in your contact lenses. Beware though, he makes a bad joke about looking into the blow hole of a whale every time he takes a picture of your eye with the Optos Daytona (wide angle retinal camera). Just laugh and nod.
