Fed up of the constant on/off of reading glasses?

Only needing visual aid for some distances and not others presents a unique problem for wearers of reading glasses: where to put the damn things when you’re not wearing them. You don’t want to always wear a shirt with a breast pocket and you’d rather not hang them from a chain around your neck like an old fashioned librarian; the only solution you’ve found is to have hundreds of pairs strewn all over the place — at home, at work, in the car, under the… Read more

The top tip to looking younger: don’t wear reading glasses

There’s no shortage of anti ageing and beauty tips that promise to turn back the years. But no matter what they may be, there’s always a catch. It could be a powerful herb from the Amazonian rainforest that can give you the skin of a teenager, but only if you can find and bathe in it for 8 hours every day. It may be a risky surgical procedure that tightens up loose skin, but at the same time leaves you with a huge scar and… Read more

Throw your reading glasses away

A lot of unexpected but unavoidable things happen as we get older. Hair stops growing where it should and starts in obscure places, hard parts of the body get soft and soft parts get hard, our memory fails us, we lose a few inches in height, and our eyesight deteriorates. Most of these things don’t really affect day-to-day life. You can deal with occasionally being senile — in fact, it can come in handy from time to time. The hair sprouting out of ears and… Read more

What is “dry eye” and how to treat it

Dry eye can be anything from a mild annoyance that affects you from time to time to an unrelenting condition that makes it hard to use your eyes for any extended period. Not least due to our unhealthy media habits and tendency to spend most of our lives indoors, more and more of us are joining this first group and experiencing occasional symptoms of dry eye. Our eyes simply weren’t designed to endure six back-to-back episodes of Orange is The New Black or… Read more

How to look after your eyes in the sun

The story goes that one day, while routinely observing the sun through his telescope, Galileo, the great polymath astronomer, was instantly blinded in both eyes by its intense solar rays. And so, just like that, the father of modern physics and one of the greatest minds of recent times lost his sight, rather poetically, doing what he loved most. But this story is nothing more than that — a story. Did you spot the telltale sign? Telescopic observers going blind in both eyes is pretty much… Read more

Eye health: Staying hydrated

  Water is all around us: vast oceans cover nearly three-quarters of the world’s surface. It circulates in the air as vapour, flows in rivers, gathers as lakes, and freezes in icecaps and glaciers. It’s even underneath us, stored in vast aquifers miles beneath the earth and settled in soil just a few millimetres under our feet. But water is also inside of us — or more accurately, is us. Up to 60 percent of the human body is made up of water, and… Read more

What does a pair of £5 reading glasses say about you?

Many great things have been said about the eyes. The great Roman philosopher Cicero described the face as a picture of the mind and suggested, “the eyes are its interpreter.” In the Bible, Matthew said they are “the lamps of the body”, and in an instant can reveal your health according to how bright they shine. And maybe most famously and profoundly Shakespeare proclaimed they are “the windows to your soul”. Whatever they are, one thing’s for certain: such an enigmatic and expressive part… Read more

Obscure questions about laser eye surgery

Remember when your teacher used to say, ‘There’s no such thing as a stupid question’, and you’d go ahead and ask something and she’d give you a strange look as if to say what are you?! Well, that’s not going to happen here. This is a safe space, and there isn’t a question about Laser Eye Surgery that surgeons haven’t heard a hundred times before.

How safe is Laser Eye Surgery?

When asking friends and family and talking to people around the office about Laser Eye Surgery, you’ll probably find a lot more people have had it than you first thought. Not too long ago we couldn’t escape knowing if someone we know had received Laser Eye Surgery — they’d spend weeks fretting about the procedure, posting blogs about their journey, and making everyone else share their experience. But today it’s not so much of a big deal, even the tabloids and media outlets… Read more
