How Young Is Too Young For Laser Eye Surgery?

As well as all the obvious advantages of being without glasses or contacts, Laser Eye Surgery is also one of the most sensible economic investments you can make. The procedure will eventually pay for itself by avoiding the costs of regular visits to the opticians, contact lenses and solutions, and not least all those broken glasses and designer frames. All this means that the biggest financial savings to be made are by those who have LASIK when they are young. But that… Read more

I was 47 years old with a -33 prescription…

We sat down with our patient Inge to talk about her journey with her vision, and how she has gone from a prescription of -33 to 0… As a baby, I was born with a prescription of approximately -5 and with each year that passed, it increased by one or two dioptres. By the time I was 18 years old, my prescription was at -20 which continued to grow until I decided to do something about it, back in 2010, when I… Read more

London Vision Clinic is helping to reduce preventable and unnecessary blindness in Nepal

The World Health Organisation estimates that 39 million people around the world suffer from blindness. Of that population, over 50% of avoidable cases are caused by untreated cataracts, closely followed by uncorrected refractive error.1 In Nepal, only the privileged few can afford sight restoring cataract or corrective eye surgery. Even buying a pair of glasses is out of most people’s reach. That’s why we have been focusing our efforts on two key projects: the establishment of a Refractive Surgery Unit in Kathmandu… Read more

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. Maybe its that extra kilo or two that sneak on each year until suddenly you look back at photos of you ten years ago, significantly healthier looking. 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
