Does it really take 10,000 operations to be an expert?

There’s an idea that’s long circulated the space of self-mastery and professional development about what it takes to become an official, bonified ‘expert’. The idea came out of a 1993 paper by Dr Anders Ericsson, in which he suggested that through committing 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, you can become an expert in almost any subject or field. Ericsson’s research picked up traction after it appeared in Talent is Overrated, a book which flipped the idea of inborn talents and natural ability on its…Read more

How good a solution to reading glasses is Laser Eye Surgery?

Do you sometimes feel like you’d do anything to free yourself from those irritating rims that always seem to disappear or break? Even the inconvenience of having to find them every time you need to read something is enough to make you cry out in frustration and throw them as far as the eye can see. But, usually just as quickly as the feeling arises, it settles, and you continue getting on with the rest of your day. That is at least until…Read more

Is it worth travelling to London for Laser Eye Surgery if you live in Leeds?

Getting from Leeds to London used to be an awkward affair that took an age to plan and even longer to arrive. Today within less than two and a half hours you can be in the nation’s capital, sipping a hot latte down by the Thames or exploring the depths of The British Museum, all for the cost of a nice lunch in Leeds (well, maybe excluding the latte). And travel times are only getting even shorter. With the introduction of HS2, the…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 are tough, both physically and mentally, suggesting having a tattoo doesn’t hurt 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 emotional distress. But all these ideas often come crashing down when we find ourselves in the…Read more

Is Laser Eye Surgery safe?

Why is it that we always seem to focus more on the negatives of a situation rather than the positives? Let’s imagine it’s the big opportunity you’ve been waiting for: you’re delivering a presentation that could result in you getting the promotion or new position you’ve been waiting for. But due to incessant thoughts and visions of you stumbling over your words and going blank when the heat is on, you back out and ask your coworker to take the lead. You…Read more

What’s the best outcome with laser surgery?

It wasn’t too long ago that doctors would only perform surgery as a last resort; a plan Z after all other options had been exhausted. The side effects not being some pain and fatigue, and maybe a lack of appetite, but infection, loss of limbs, and often death. If you lived in the early 18th century, there was also the added horror of sitting under the knife without the modern miracle of anaesthesia. A recently discovered medical journal from 1712 documents some of…Read more

How much should you pay for Laser Eye Surgery?

Finding the right Laser Eye Surgery treatment at the right price can be incredibly easy or excruciatingly difficult. It’s not like say buying a new car, in which you find a few that take your fancy and then compare prices across dealerships, knowing that no matter where you end up purchasing your chosen make and model, it’ll have the same specs, interior, engine size, and optional extras. Due to the lack of regulations in the industry, Laser Eye Surgery clinics and providers…Read more

How much would you pay for perfect eyesight?

What comes to mind when you think of the word priceless? Relationships with friends and loved ones, particular memories and experiences, special heirlooms or trinkets? Thankfully, most things we consider to be priceless we never really have to put a price on. It’s unlikely that someone will approach you one day with an offer to buy Betsy, your beloved miniature schnauzer, for a cool million in cash. Unfortunately, however, there are some priceless things we’re forced to assess in terms of their monetary value. These tend…Read more

Can I give surgery as a present to someone?

Enabling someone to experience some of the world’s greatest thrills freely, things like rock climbing, skiing, surfing, and scuba driving, without the limitations of glasses or contact lenses, is a truly invaluable gift. Even the ability to go about your day without fiddling with or worrying about visual aids is enough to make a significant impact in someone’s life. The pain of having to remember them wherever you go, the inconvenience of replacing broken or lost pairs, the embarrassment of crawling on your hands and…Read more

How does blended Laser Eye Surgery work?

If you’re anything like me, you won’t dive into a new therapy, course of medication, or treatment until you know everything there is to know about it. It’s an admirable trait — albeit one that can become annoying when encountering conflicting information and reviews online, to later realise you’ve spent six hours non-stop staring at a screen. Fortunately, your research session today won’t end with you as a whirring, hazy lump, lying eyes wide on the couch or in bed. Here we’re going…Read more
