Arghh!! Hayfever and contact lens woes

The sun is high in the sky and the flowers are in bloom. It’s the first few days of spring — one of the best times of the year. So, you jump out of bed, and without thinking, draw the curtains, open the windows wide, and take one big, long, deep breath in. Instead of a nice pleasant aaahhhh at the lovely fresh spring air, what comes out is more like an arghhhh!! as you run sneezing and tearing to the bathroom to dig out your… Read more

What are the pros and cons: LASIK vs PRK/LASEK vs SMILE? [VIDEO]

So you’ve learned a little bit about Laser Eye Surgery and the incredible benefits it has to offer. You’ve got to get a clear picture of how it works: by removing tissue in the cornea and therefore permanently changing your eye’s focusing power. And after visiting various clinics and doing your research, you’ve discovered that despite the huge list of brand names of treatments — including UltraLASIK, Accu-wave LASIK, Custom LASIK, and Zyoptix — there are actually only three main treatment types,… Read more

Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If…? And Other Suitability Questions

Head down the high street, walk into a Laser Eye Surgery provider, and ask a question, say ‘Can I have the treatment if I’m over 60? And you’ll get one answer. But hop in your car and go to a private or independent clinic and ask them the same question, and you get a totally different one. What’s going on here? Surely if you’re ineligible at one clinic you’re ineligible at them all, and vice versa, right? Well, this is often the case… Read more

A New Reality with Man in the High Castle Writer Rob Williams

Rob Williams is somewhat of an expert in alternate realities. The acclaimed screenwriter is one of the bright minds behind the first season of ‘Man in the High Castle’ — the hit Amazon drama loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s novel of the same name. In writing for the show, Rob helped piece together a reality in which Nazi Germany and Japan won WWII and took over the USA, splitting it into three sections: an area controlled by the Japanese, a Nazi-controlled section,… Read more

8 Things you can’t do wearing contact lens

But as the days and weeks and years pass, the reality of what you’ve bought into becomes all too clear. You start seeing how much of a hinderance contacts actually are, their benefits start to fade into the background, and you begin wondering if they’re actually the convenient and promising solution you thought they were.… Read more

At what prescription do you become legally blind?

You would think knowing if you were blind or not would be a simple thing. You can’t see nothin’. The world beyond your nose is just one big blur, and trying to do anything without your contacts or glasses always ends in harm or disaster. But nothing is ever that simple, and not least our vision. Your eyes are one of the most complex systems in the known universe, and there are as many types and degrees of vision as there are shades… Read more

We are all biologically engineered to protect our eyes

With our bodies having various mechanisms and systems built in to protect itself, it’s no surprise we’re hardwired to stop any harm coming to our eyes. This is, of course, a great evolutionary adaptation. We are incredibly conscious about anything coming near them, including wasps, sand, and child-sized fingers. It can become somewhat problematic, though, when you’re faced with the situation in which your eyes aren’t functioning correctly and the body can’t do anything to improve them. All your instincts that urge… Read more

The most common fears of Laser Eye Surgery

As humans, there are certain basic fears we’re born with. Things like being separated or rejected from a group and suffering a loss of autonomy that leaves us unable to take care of ourselves. As a function of these basic fears, we’re biologically wired to prevent anything happening to us that may in any way lead to one or more of them playing out. It’s why we don’t like heights, climbing into small spaces, going underwater, or being alone for too long. It’s also… Read more
