How many private eye surgery clinics in London?

When searching for a Laser Eye Surgery clinic in London, you’ve probably noticed there are a lot of names you’re not familiar with. Like many cities, there’s the usual big chains — companies like Optimax and Optical Express that operate and advertise on a national scale — but there are way more names like Advanced Vision Care, Moorfields, and Focus that are completely new to you. You also can’t help but notice these unfamiliar clinics are all clustered around one area: Harley Street in…Read more

Quick guide: Laser Eye Surgery and Alcohol

Pregnancy, surgery, breastfeeding, taking antibiotics, having dinner with the parents-in-law — all times in our life when we’re advised to stay away from the liquor cabinet. And also, uncoincidentally, the times in our lives when we could most do with a nice drink or two. Nine months with another person growing inside of you without even a tipple of wine? A week with an unbearable ear infection and no soothing nightcaps? A whole night sober with my mother-in-law? Yeah right. We all know…Read more

How quickly should you expect to return to doing normal stuff after treatment?

What would be the first thing you’d do after having Laser Eye Surgery? Head down to the coast for a weekend break? Take a hike in the Cotswolds and enjoy the scenery in all its glory? Or maybe finally book that skydive or adventure sports holiday? Yeah, they’re all nice ideas, but let’s get real. It’s more likely you’ll dive back into a work project, head down to your favourite bar for a few drinks with friends, or curl up on the sofa and…Read more

Quick guide: Anxiety and Laser Eye Surgery

What’s a normal, healthy level of anxiety? Everyone gets a bout of the jitters before an event or blows their top over the most trivial thing every now and again. But what constitutes too much and when does a nervous or somewhat cautious demeanour become considered a full-blown anxiety disorder? In today’s fast-paced world where we can’t even step out our doors without hearing about political unrest, and natural disasters — add to that the traffic and construction work up the street — this question…Read more

Quick guide: Laser Eye Surgery recovery

Which part of the body heals the fastest? How about the skin: the largest organ in the body and our outer barrier to the world that has to endure scratching, scrapes, cuts, abrasions, burns, and a whole heap of abuse every day. Or what about something like the liver? Our largest internal organ that never stops filtering blood, supporting the digestive system, and detoxifying the barrage of chemicals and toxins we pound it with. Well, although superficial scrapes on the skin can heal…Read more

Laser Eye Surgery finance choices

  Napolean allegedly said we’re a nation of shopkeepers, suggesting that England’s riches and wealth was all thanks to good old commerce. And who can argue with that — as a nation, there’s nothing we love more than to shop. And so when it comes to hitting the high street or online stores to buy our goods and services, there’s certainly no shortage of options to help us do so. One of which that is rapidly growing in popularity is financing. Want a new…Read more

Can I talk to a patient who has had Laser Eye Surgery?

It doesn’t matter how many people have had Laser Eye Surgery in the past, there’s always new questions being asked: “Can I do a presentation straight after the surgery?” “What happens if I get cramp during the procedure?” “I know I’m not supposed to wear perfume on the day, but what about Chanel?” Sometimes they can be answered with a simple yes or no, other times they require a little more explaining. But a lot of the time they can’t be resolved by either.…Read more

Why is SMILE such a good option?

You may have heard that LASIK is the king of Laser Eye Surgery — the gold standard in refractive correction; or even that it’s the most popular and effective treatment for common conditions like short and long sightedness. And all this is true. But like all great things, LASIK has got competition. Enter the third generation of Laser Eye Surgery: ReLEx SMILE. LASIK involves creating a flap in the cornea to get to the permanent tissue underneath and requires the surgeon to…Read more

How long after laser surgery can I watch TV?

When you think of someone recovering from surgery, you picture them in a hospital bed or lying on the couch in their dressing gown, indulging in a family size chocolate bar and passively consuming the joy that is day-time TV. There’s nothing quite like a rowdy family dispute on Jeremy Kyle or a tour of extravagant holiday homes in Andalusia to help you forget about your current situation. But what about if it’s not your legs, stomach, or [insert body part here] recovering…Read more

What age can I expect to need reading glasses?

Age-related long sight, getting old, poor lighting; there are many ways people describe and deal with the loss in vision quality they experience as they get older. But if you want to get technical, the accurate medical term is presbyopia — literally meaning ‘ageing eye’. It describes the loss in elasticity of the lens of the eye that results in the inability to read small print and focus on objects up close. Along with a decline in memory, a bad back, and finding yourself watching…Read more
