Exercise To Keep Your Eyes Healthy

Everyone knows that keeping fit will help you to grow old gracefully and may slow the degenerative processes associated with ageing – but did you know that it can also keep your eyes healthy?  It’s true; recent research has shown that taking regular exercise can slow the progress of macular degeneration, an age-related condition that affects the back of the eye. Macular degeneration can cause distorted vision or blank spots, and it is most common in those over the age of 50.… Read more

Life With Contact Lenses

Life with contact lenses may seem a blessing compared to the frustrations of glasses but, for some people, it can also be tough.  Your lenses may not fog up like glasses, your vision won’t be subjected to a limiting frame, and there are no fragile arms or nose bridges that are at risk of being broken – but contact lenses are far from problem-free.  In fact, they can sometimes be more, not less, frustrating than specs. At the very least, contact lenses are… Read more

Is Laser Eye Surgery Risky?

“Laser”, “eye” and “surgery” are three words that may, understandably, arouse anxiety. Unlike in the USA, where the procedure is often referred to simply as “LASIK”, one of the first obstacles for someone considering the treatment in this country may well be just getting over their pre-conceptions (which, we have found, are most often mis-conceptions) about what risks Laser Eye Surgery involves. It is completely normal to be anxious about having Laser Eye Surgery: to be honest, if you weren’t, we’d be… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery Fears: What If My Optometrist Finds A Problem I Didn’t Know About?

People avoid doctors for many reasons. Some find appointments difficult to pack into a busy schedule, some are unwilling to open up to a doctor, or worried about perceived ‘time wasting’, and many even fear that being amongst sick people in the doctor’s waiting room will result in contamination! However, something that is perhaps discussed less often is the common fear that a doctor may find a problem that is bigger than what the appointment was initially booked for. This fear is,… Read more
