What prescription can Laser Eye Surgery correct?

When you go in for an eye exam at the opticians, the main thing you come out knowing is whether or not you need to wear glasses. But they also might mention a bit about exactly why you need glasses. With your little prescription card in your hand, they’ll explain how you have shortsightedness, longsightedness, astigmatism, or maybe a mixture of the above. Aside from that, there’s not much else you need to know. But if you’re not too keen on a lifetime of glasses or… Read more

As seen on TED [Video]

In 1948, Spanish ophthalmologist Jose Ignacio Barraquer Moner was fed up with relying on external aids to see well. He wanted a solution for blurry vision that would fix the eye itself, without the need of wearing glasses. The answer he came up with was something called “keratomileusis”, a surgical technique that alters vision by reshaping the cornea. And the rest is history. Today, we know this procedure as LASIK, a treatment for everything from shortsightedness and longsightedness to astigmatism and presbyopia.… Read more

Fireworks & bonfires: Do take care

Fireworks are delightful inventions that bring fun and enjoyment to everyone (except maybe dogs and old people). But they’re also small dangerous missiles packed with gunpowder that fire ‘payloads’ at hundreds of miles an hour into the sky to explode in a (hopefully) controlled and artistic way.

Despite the fact that for millennia they’ve kept us warm and provided us with a focal point for getting together,… Read more

5 Natural Beauty Tips for Vibrant and Healthy Eyes

We have witnessed a ton of health and beauty trends over the past few years, from Korean skincare routines, ‘virtual try-ons’ in store, to unbundling the spa and salon take-homes.

Jade rollers, a jade paint-roller type tool, to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck. And bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy, to name just a few. As usual,… Read more
