Is It Safe to Dye Your Hair Before or After Laser Eye Surgery ?

There are certain things you just shouldn’t do immediately before or after having Laser Eye Surgery. Down a fishbowl Martini. Go wild with paint at the Holi festival or take your chances at Pamplona’s running of the bulls. Give birth. The reason why such things are to be avoided can seem pretty obvious.

Can Laser Eye Surgery Benefit Ageing Eyes?

Despite celebs and billionaires having access to the best anti-ageing tricks and treatments available, it still happens to everyone. Yep, even “beautiful people” like Beyonce and Dicaprio and super CEOs like Elon Musk can’t (yet) fight off the years and stop themselves getting older. Such a thought may help to give you a little consolation, at least briefly. The fact is, getting older isn’t something many of us like to face. In fact, many of us (ahem, not guilty) spend much of… Read more

What causes dry eyes after laser vision correction? [VIDEO]

Nerves play an important role in the Laser Eye Surgery recovery process. I’m not talking about the jitters, patients are usually very calm by this time — I’m on about a different set of nerves: those on the surface of your eye.

Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If I Have A Squint?

Strabismus. It’s not the name of some Greek god like Hephaestus, who was in fact cast of Mount Olympus by his mother for not meeting her aesthetic ideals. The word is used to describe what is more commonly referred to as a squint, a medical condition where the eyes point in different directions. As well as an apparent difference in the appearance of the eyes, a squint can also cause blurred vision, a lazy eye, or double vision. Since most squints occur… Read more

What If I Am Currently Wearing Contact Lenses? [Video]

Contact lenses are an incredible invention that enable glasses wearers to avoid daily frustration and do many things they couldn’t before. However, as little plastic disks that sit on your eyeball, they’re not free from their own issue and some rather unexpected effects. Along with increasing your chances of infection and reducing the thickness of your cornea, contacts also, over time, change the shape of the eye. This effect isn’t anything you really need to worry about as it likely won’t affect… Read more
