Does SMILE Laser Eye Surgery hurt?

In our experience, the worst part of Laser Eye Surgery always comes before the treatment. This might sound surprising at first. After all, Laser Eye Surgery involves lasers and your eyes. However, it’s pretty much the same story for most big events in our lives. Even those that do actually involve some discomfort and pain — which Laser Eye Surgery doesn’t. It’s the anxiety of sitting and waiting to speak in front of a crowd. It’s the sleepless nights worrying about the… Read more

Fitting Laser Eye Surgery into a hectic work schedule

How many times has someone said to you, “don’t worry, it will only take a minute”, for whatever it is to actually take around six hours? At least that’s what it feels like. Because not only does it not just take a minute, it completely disrupts your schedule, throws the rest of your day off, and after all is said and done, seem to set you back several days. Working as part of a large team, this happens to me all the… Read more

Autumn is the season of colours

Colours are all around us. And should we stop for long enough to notice them, we realise they make our world not just look incredible, but our experiences a whole lot richer. They are, after all, what enable us to become awestruck at such scenes as a sunset, a rainbow lorikeet, a Henry Matisse or Van Gogh painting, and the bloom of the cherry blossoms in spring. But beyond mere pleasure for the senses, in the natural environment, colours have a whole other… Read more

Will LASIK Eye Surgery Be Replaced With SMILE?

LASIK has been around for 25 years. In that time, it has allowed millions of people around the globe to experience freedom from glasses and contacts. However, the technology in the field of vision correction is ever evolving and is thus improving all the time. It also varies between clinics, with more than 95 percent of patients in 2018 at London Vision Clinic achieving 20/20 vision after surgery. One of the newest innovations in corrective eye surgery is ReLEx SMILE, or SMILE… Read more

Can I see my Laser Eye Surgery being performed?

You’re looking forward to having greater vision following the surgery, but what exactly do you see during the procedure? This is one of the most common concerns that frequents the mind of those considering Laser Eye Surgery, along with similar queries like ‘Will the treatment hurt?’, and, ‘How long does the procedure take?’ This is perfectly natural — in fact, it’s best practice to find out all the details of the day of the procedure. We also advise doing the same for… Read more

Can I eat or drink prior to my Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’ve ever had surgery in the past, it’s likely you’ll be familiar with the period of fasting that comes beforehand. If your surgery was a morning procedure, then this may have just meant skipping breakfast. But if you had it scheduled for midday or later, this could have meant going more than 12 hours without eating. Fasting certainly has its uses, but for me, having to do it during the hours leading up to surgery is far from ideal. Comfort food… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends? When you’re a glasses or contacts wearer, these images of summer are nothing more than idealistic fantasies. The reality is, your best time of the year is more likely consumed by fighting off allergies and eye problems and dealing with all the inconveniences that come with… Read more

Hayfever In Your Eyes And Contact Lenses, Reasons To Consider Laser Eye Surgery

Contact lenses provide a welcome relief from glasses, but unfortunately they don’t come without their own problems. The inconvenience of lenses steaming up, breaking an arm or nose bridge, and of course visiting the optometrist, is replaced by other troublesome occurrences which can often be more concerning. Little things like waking up to a blurry alarm clock, regularly finding yourself on your hands and knees searching for that elusive dropped lens, and experiencing dry and irritated eyes, are all but uncommon to… Read more

Guide to Dry Eyes and Laser Eye Surgery

Up there with the most complex parts of the human body, and for that matter the known universe, is the eye. The eyes are the body’s natural cameras that capture light, convert it to waves of electrochemical signals, and magically conjure up the images we see. With so much complexity, the eye requires an ultra-precise arrangement of components in order to function correctly. And, like a pearl sitting in a clamshell, such a delicate design needs appropriate protection. For the eye, one… Read more
