Waring III, in association with the editorial staffs of the Journal of Refractive… Read more

How Young Is Too Young For Laser Eye Surgery?

As well as all the obvious advantages, having Laser Eye Surgery also makes economic sense. Considering that the procedure will eventually pay for itself by avoiding a lifetime of opticians’ bills, the cost of contact lenses and solutions, as well as glasses and stylish frames, the biggest financial savings are to be made by those who have LASIK when they are young. But how young is too young? There is no doubt that as we get older time rushes by all too quickly;… Read more

A Light Bulb Moment – Switching On For Better Sight

A Light Bulb Moment – Switching On For Better Sight Have you ever tried to buy a replacement light bulb without bringing the old one along in your pocket? The choice is quite baffling and the possibilities endlessly confusing – you almost need a degree in physics to make head or tail of it. Forget all those inappropriate jokes about how many blondes are needed to change a light bulb – it really doesn’t matter what colour your hair (or what sex… Read more

You’ve Gotta Have A Hobby

You’ve Gotta Have A Hobby For Dr Dan it’s the saxophone and for Glenn Carp it’s all about outdoor sports and a special passion for fly fishing. Anybody in a demanding, absorbing profession that calls for total, unwavering concentration will understand the need for a hobby. And not just any pastime will do. While knitting a scarf or baking biscuits might provide a temporary diversion, they could never allow for the necessary total switch off from the demands of Laser Eye Surgery… Read more

How High Is An Elephant’s Eye?

How High Is An Elephant’s Eye? As I write this I am listening to the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein and appreciating the timeless talent of the greatest creative partnership American musical theatre has ever seen. It is exceptionally pleasant to re-visit all those classics of yesteryear: “I’m going to wash that man right of my hair”, “People will say we’re in love”, “I enjoy being a girl”, all those recognisable tunes from Carousel, Oklahoma! The King and I and The Sound… Read more

The Fame Game

Walking around the streets of the capital, it is not unusual to spot the odd celebrity. In and around North London where I have been living for the last few months I’ve seen Little Britain’s Matt Lucas walking his dog near Marylebone High Street, Gwyneth Paltrow on the school run in Camden and Kate Moss in a café in Hampstead. Even since this post began to mull around in my brain prior to writing it down – I have spotted the journalist… Read more

Media Friendly Dr. Dan … Wicked!

Dr Dan is, what we call in the business, “Media Friendly”. In other words, he is a great communicator – one who can spontaneously deliver  his message in exactly the right tone whether his audience comprises top ophthalmic surgeons at a world congress  or avant-garde music lovers tuning in to BBC Radio6. Those listening to the George Lamb Show on July 14th heard how Dr Dan could hold his own on the banter-front by returning the quick fire humour of George and… Read more
