Reading glasses are never cool

In the early 90’s, Doc Martins and flannel shirts hit the mainstream fashion scene. Soon after, babydoll dresses appeared in the wardrobes of most young girls. Fast forward twenty years later, and, as the notion goes, they all came back into style. There’s a lot of debate about how long this cycle of nostalgia runs, but twenty years is a good rule of thumb. Some people say it’s more like forty years. Others say everything is simultaneously in and out of style all the time.… Read more

Your private invitation to Harley Street

Nestled between two of the capital’s four Royal Parks — Regents and Hyde — as well as the Queen’s very own resting place — Buckingham Palace — is where you’ll find Harley Street, the infamous medical hub, and one of the most prestigious postcodes in the nation’s capital. When I say prestigious, I don’t mean like Kensington Palace Gardens or certain parts of Belgravia where average property prices can be in the tens of millions. Harley Street is a humble little area that… Read more

Serious about sport. Serious about vision.

Nothing can get in the way of you and sport. Torrential rain, family obligations, a thick covering of snow — these pesky little disruptions are enough to stop most people from lacing up their running shoes or getting on the bike, but not you. There could be a warning of impending nuclear war and mini-van sized hailstones pelting down outside, but that still wouldn’t stop you. All you need is your physical health and most your marbles still intact, and you’re set. Unfortunately, this means anyone with… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery in 2020

2020: It’s the year of the world’s first robot Olympics and a time when more people will have mobile phones than electricity, cars will drive themselves, and your typical home computer will have the processing power of a human brain. But what does it have in store for Laser Eye Surgery? Well, if its history is anything to go by, a lot — a heck of a lot. Since the dawn of the first laser eye treatment —PRK — in the 1980s, every passing… Read more

You wouldn’t think it, but working as a freelancer there are many times I miss being in a big office and working under the iron thumb of a boss. For one, I wouldn’t suddenly decide to take an extended lunch break when I have a deadline to meet the next morning; they also probably wouldn’t stand for my clothes rack/kitchen counter/desk either. But the main impact having a stern face looming over me would be in cutting down the endless hours I spend — or would that be waste?… Read more

Where do you keep your reading glasses?

At around a million times faster than NASA’s 1960’s computer, a smartphone is an incredibly sophisticated piece of tech. With it, you can do things like pay for groceries, translate text, and stay in touch with your loved ones. Without it, well, we would barely achieve anything. And as such an indispensable part of our life that brings us endless pleasure (thank you Candy Crush), we have no trouble carting it around with us everywhere we go. Reading glasses, on the other hand, do… Read more

Reading glasses are a crap solution

“I don’t need glasses! The text is just really small…” — My mum, every time she can’t read something My mum has presbyopia and can’t read or see anything in the vicinity of her face without her tacky supermarket ready readers. But don’t tell her that; she’s convinced the problem is not with her but the world — as if books and bank statements are produced in smaller and smaller print ever year. It’s understandable — I mean who wants to visit the… Read more

Protecting your eyes at work

Usually it’s only once we get home after a long, hard day’s work that our attention is drawn to our eyes. We notice they feel tired and strained, that we are rubbing them every few minutes, or that the writing on our Kindle is a little fuzzier than normal. We use our eyes almost every minute of every waking hour of the day. Six or seven hours of which are spent in front of a computer. Include the time staring at our other… Read more

Rolling back the years: How to treat presbyopia

We accept ageing as a fact — an unavoidable process that governs all existence and affects us whether we like it or not. And in many ways, it is. Ageing is one part of the biological puzzle that continues to evade even the brightest minds and the most cutting edge technology. However, all is not lost; many experts believe an effective solution to slowing down and even reversing ageing is on the horizon. The only thing we have to do is wait.… Read more

Alternatives to laser surgery for your eyes

It’s taken us a long time to get to this point — around a thousand years to be more exact. Even longer if you count the early work of Greek scholars like Euclid and Aristotle. Back then if you were afflicted by poor eyesight, you didn’t have much choice other than to deal with it. But it wasn’t all bad; you may even have been thought of as blessed and sought after for certain crafts like specialist coin engraving. In 2017, if you’ve got… Read more
