Laser Eye Surgery procedure: How complex is the treatment?

In general, treatments are as complex as the problem they’re designed to fix. Minor cuts and scrapes are easily managed with some antibacterial wash and a plaster. Gallstones are more serious and require medical intervention, but the procedure is pretty straightforward and routine. Brain injuries are incredibly complicated and challenging and need nothing less than an expert to perform risky open brain surgery. But advancing knowledge and technology is turning this idea on its head. Many complex injuries and conditions which were once difficult… Read more

Watching TV after Laser Eye Surgery

When you say the word television, most people think of the plastic box that sits as the focal point in living rooms around the world. But to a growing number of people, TV means watching Netflix on their laptop, live streaming sport on their phone, or even watching something like YouTube TV projected onto a wall. Television is now accessible from whatever our device of choice and has thus expanded way beyond the living room. It can accompany us on the Tube, in bed, in… Read more

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision surgery recovery time

If you know a little bit about PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, you may have noticed it treats the symptoms of presbyopia in a similar way to the traditional approach of monovision. This is indeed true. Both treatments work by increasing the range of your vision by independently altering the focus of each eye — one to work better up close, and the other to work better at a distance. But the similarities end there. Think of monovision like as the baby of presbyopia… Read more

What is wavefront?

Since 1862, when Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen first designed a standard test for visual acuity, we’ve used the Snellen Chart as a basis for testing our vision. His familiar black and white chart of ever smaller letters first introduced the idea of ‘standard vision’, and enabled eyecare professionals to determine where a person sits in comparison with the rest of the population. Suddenly by standing 20 feet away from a chart and reading through lines of letters, one could discover where they are… Read more

When does presbyopia start?

Literally meaning “old eye”, presbyopia is the medical term we use for the natural effects of ageing on the eye. The first thing you’re likely to notice is a loss of ability to read fine print and focus on objects up close. It may be you’re holding the newspaper further and further away or squinting to read material you could once see clearly. Add to that stress, eyestrain, and headaches, and you’ve got a typical case of presbyopia. But being so closely related to ageing,… Read more

LASEK vs LASIK

Today, the range of treatments available often with varying names, across the many Laser Eye Surgery providers can make it difficult to know which one to choose, and just what the differences are. But underneath this, the endless promotions and fancy branding, the number of Laser Eye Surgery techniques are actually very few. All Laser Eye Surgery techniques work by reshaping the permanent tissue, or stroma, that sits in the corneal bed. The one thing that differs is the way in which they access this tissue.… Read more

Is Laser Eye Surgery painful?

When it comes to pain, we all have different ideas about how much we can tolerate. Some people believe they’re tough, suggesting they could walk on burning coals and that they’re able to deal with pretty much anything that comes their way. Others accept they’re just plain wimps, passing out at even the sight of blood and avoiding anything that could cause even a hint of emotional distress. But whatever ideas you have about pain often come crashing down when you find… Read more

How to look good in your glasses?

You’ve tried to embrace them as the fashion accessory — you really have. But unlike Jennifer Aniston or Anne Hathaway, you weren’t blessed with perfectly symmetrical features. Your face doesn’t fit nicely into one of the common categories — “Square, diamond, heart, or base down triangle? More like oblong-triangle with a dash of square”— and the only style that does looks good on you went out of fashion twenty years ago. But they’re easier and safer than contacts so you try to make them work.… Read more

Fed up of cheap reading glasses

They were never meant to be part of your life. It was just another day on a routine shopping trip, after a morning of straining to read this month’s bank statement and the small print on product labels, when you finally decided enough is enough and paused as you passed the revolving rack of shame. You casually rotated the stand, trying to give off an air of passive interest, and then, when nobody was looking your way, slyly whisked a pair into the… Read more

Anxious about Laser Eye Surgery? Read why you don’t have to be

Most of us have a weird, visceral reaction to the thought of someone touching our eyes. And even hearing the word mentioned in the same breath as ‘laser’ is enough to make us cringe. So when it comes to actually considering or preparing for the surgery, well, you can take that icky feeling and times it by ten. Add to that even the slightest trace of negativity about Laser Eye Surgery online, and you have a perfect recipe for widespread fear. But apart… Read more
