Here’s to the readers, the adventurers, the young-at-hearters

If Dylan Thomas’s 1947 poem, “Do not go gentle into that good night”, could be summed up in one line, it would be: “Old age should burn and rave at close of day”. But it can’t be. Although short and concise as it is, Thomas crafted every single word to try and convey the full power of his feelings on a very personal matter, his father’s imminent death, and get across exactly why he shouldn’t give up on life and instead “Rage, rage… Read more

What’s the best view in London?

Even if you live in London, you can go weeks or months without really seeing it. Your eyes can see to a level of quality and detail that’s equivalent a 576-megapixel camera. But when caught up in the mix of all the hustle and bustle, all that power can be dedicated solely to navigating tourists and dodging traffic. Not to mention chuggers and cyclists. And even if you’re just visiting for the weekend, your eye’s field of view is simply not wide… Read more

8 Things you should definitely not do whilst wearing specs

When you first become a glasses wearer, you’re blissfully unaware that as well as signing up to rent your vision, you’re also signing away the right to do many things that were once simple and pleasurable.

Laser Eye Surgery really is transformational

When you hear that Laser Eye Surgery is performed over fifteen thousands times every year in just the UK, it’s difficult to really get a sense of what that means.

If he was alive today, would John Lennon have had Laser Eye Surgery?

What do Mahatma Gandhi, Buddy Holley, Sarah Palin, and John Lennon all have in common? They didn’t all lead India to freedom in their underwear. But they did have a significant impact on fashion, whether intentionally or unintentionally, thanks to their distinctive eyewear. Gandhi and his round metal-rimmed spectacles (and robes) caused him to have nearly as many style copycats as he had religious followers. Holly and his iconic thick black frames were arguably as influential and groundbreaking as his music. Palin’s wide… Read more

Why laser is a better solution if you have an astigmatism

Just like no nose is completely straight and no lips are perfectly round and plump (at least naturally), no eye is one hundred percent spherical. That means the reality is most people have some degree of astigmatism: an abnormal curvature of the eye that causes light to focus unevenly on the retina. Even the eyes of people who have perfect vision are a little skewiff. However, for most people, a little bit of imperfection in their globular organs doesn’t cause them any… Read more

Staying hydrated — And why it’s important for your eyes

You know when you’re dehydrated. No matter what you do and how many litres of water you drink, you just can’t seem to take enough fluid in. This is weird when you think that dehydration is when more water leaves the body than enters the body. The thing is, though, whereas water can only enter the body through one inlet in your face, it can leave the body in many, many, many different ways. So, staying hydrated is a little more complicated… Read more
