Why laser is a better solution if you have an astigmatism

Just like no nose is totally straight and no lips perfectly round and plump (at least naturally), no eye is one hundred percent spherical. The reality is, then, that most people have some degree of astigmatism — an abnormal curvature of the eye that causes light to focus unevenly on the retina. If you’re reading this, chances are your two little globular organs are a little more irregularly shaped than the next person. Depending on the severity of your astigmatism, they may even resemble… 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. Without sounding like too much of a party pooper, it’s the same story for bonfires. Despite the fact that for millennia they’ve kept us warm and provided us with a focal point for getting together,… Read more

Staying hydrated — And why it’s important for your eyes

You know when you’re dehydrated. No matter what you do and how many litres of water you drink, you just can’t seem to take enough fluid in. This is weird when you think that dehydration is when more water leaves the body than enters the body. The thing is, though, whereas water can only enter the body through one inlet in your face, it can leave the body in many, many, many different ways. So, staying hydrated is a little more complicated… Read more

Why are prescription sunglasses so expensive?

If it wasn’t bad enough that you have poor eyesight, you also have to pay for the privilege of wearing the clunky medical apparatus we call eyeglasses. But to rub it in even more, if you want to avoid headaches, eyestrain, UV damage, and generally bumping into things while protecting your eyes from the sun, you also have to dish out a fortune for prescription sunglasses. There’s no way around it. You can try wearing your favourite pair of 80s Raybans, balancing a… Read more

How can you tell if you have cataracts?

The eyes are two globular organs made up of mostly water, salt, and proteins that provide organisms, like us, with vision. And, at least on the surface, that’s all there is to it. But if you stop for a moment and take a deeper look into your own eyes (if you can), you’ll see they also contain two million moving parts in a space that’s just two centimetres wide, making them the second most complex organ after the brain, and thus one… Read more

Practical Tips For Naturally Brighter & Whiter Eyes


They’re the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them, and the last thing you remember when you walk away. It doesn’t matter if the person was six foot or four, was bald or had a thick head of hair, was in their early twenties or late eighties; if their eyes were clear and shining, they were a complete vision of ageless beauty. When was the last time, though, other than when watching a movie, you saw someone and just… Read more

Your initial consultation: When more really means more

Laser Eye Surgery deals with one of the most complex organs in the body and one of our most valued senses. Rightly so, you may worry about what is the best option for surgery and have you chosen the right clinic to perform your treatment. There are so many fancy named treatments that don’t mean anything, technologies that don’t do anything, and added extras that make little to no difference to your outcome (except for the cost). You’re probably confused about what… Read more

The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery

Just a few years ago, the outlook for Laser Eye Surgery seemed somewhat bleak. Consumer watchdog Which? had published a report that highlighted deep and widespread problems among clinics, from insufficient advice and hot-air promises to deceiving prices and unrealistic claims. But the report was fair and comprehensive. And whereas it revealed that this may be the case for some Laser Eye Surgery clinics, it also showed it wasn’t a reflection of the many other private and independent clinics that do fair… Read more

Reading glasses are never cool. Ever.

What do your glasses say about you? It’s a simple question with, at least on the surface, a simple answer. They either say “Hey, I’m cool.” or, provide people with an indication of your age, or just highlight the fact you simply cannot see very well. And oftentimes all three. But look beyond the four-eyed facade, behind the thick rims that sit between your eyes and the world, and you can see they’re actually communicating a lot more than you’d first think.… Read more
