The road to better vision – part 2

Change can be dramatic – a sudden trauma or event – but can also be so gradual that we barely notice.

Or like me, maybe it’s your eyesight – once so crisp and clear – but slowly deteriorated to the point of being unsafe and difficult to function. I didn’t want to acknowledge the change.… Read more

An interview with Professor Reinstein on Laser Blended Vision and ReLEx SMILE

Laser Blended Vision is a sophisticated laser eye surgery treatment to get around the effects of ageing of the eye (presbyopia), which was devised by myself, here at the London Vision Clinic in 2004 and implemented by Carl Zeiss into their laser platform as PRESBYOND® in 2009. Laser Blended Vision is modified binocular vision (vision using both eyes with an overlapping field of vision) and we intentionally correct the eyes slightly differently. The dominant eye is focused to see mainly distance to… Read more

Sitting Down With… Dan Reinstein Medical Director, London Vision Clinic, London, UK.

  Being a doctor puts you in the extremely unique and privileged position to attend important moments in people’s lives – delivering a baby, being present when someone is told they have a fatal diagnosis, witnessing severe psychotic behaviour, or performing surgery. My career choice came down to choosing a specialty where I’d be using my academic strengths in math and physics, alongside my human strength of engaging with patients of all ages. I also wanted to become a surgeon, but needed… Read more

Laser eye surgery is nowhere near as scary as you might think

Imagine being told that in just a few minutes you could have your eyesight corrected to near perfect. No overnight stay, no painful procedure, just a few minutes lying on a bed. Before I go any further, I have to say that my eyesight was not terrible – I had astigmatism and was slightly long-sighted. But I use the computer for a gazillion hours a day, so I used to get headaches. Even so, a few months after having laser eye surgery… Read more

Dom Joly: I’ve seen the light

Reproduced from: Cotswold Life I had 20/20 vision until about five years ago. In fact, I think I had better than 20/20 vision. Can you have 30/20 vision?

About five years ago I started finding it harder and harder to read things. At first I just thought I must be tired… or… Read more
