It’s a larger investment, and you have to go somewhere special to get it, but when you do, it offers an unrivalled level of performance and a much higher quality experience. And yet, there are still a small proportion of people who Laser Eye Surgery isn’t good for. If we stick with the Ferrari analogy, we can see straight away that such a car… Read more

If I am nervous will this be a problem?

Sometimes nothing can prevent a little nerves.  And the majority of the time you wouldn’t want to. A little bit of adrenaline and anxiety keep us on our toes, help us through sticky situations, and have even been shown to help us perform at our best—think of athletes beating their PB’s on competition day. But there are times when nerves are far from helpful, particularly when they appear in droves. Think of a first date, characterised by sweaty palms, peculiar behaviour, and… Read more

  The first feeling I had when I heard the term Laser Eye Surgery was fear. Before obtaining all the facts, the words ‘laser’ and ‘eyes’ in the same sentence were enough to invoke some vivid and unpleasant imagery. Unbeknown to me, this immediate gut reaction was effective for many years in keeping the idea of ever having Laser Eye Surgery far from being a possibility. This happens much more often than we know: we take a back seat and allow our… Read more

Can I talk to someone who has been treated?

Not too long ago, advertisements and salespeople were the main influences in our decisions to buy certain products or use certain services. If you were lucky, you may of had a friend or family member who could offer you a recommendation, but more often than not you were buying in blind faith.

Understanding treatment for vision problems

As one of our greatest assets, our vision has spurred the rise of several industries focused on keeping it in tip top condition.

Let’s break down each of the above—specs; contacts; Laser Eye Surgery—and look specifically at how effective they are in treating three common vision problems—short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia), and presbyopia (ageing… Read more
