Can I eat or drink prior to my Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’ve ever had surgery in the past, it’s likely you’ll be familiar with the period of fasting that comes beforehand. If your surgery was a morning procedure, then this may have just meant skipping breakfast. But if you had it scheduled for midday or later, this could have meant going more than 12 hours without eating. Fasting certainly has its uses, but for me, having to do it during the hours leading up to surgery is far from ideal. Comfort food…Read more

What is the Laser Eye Surgery recovery time?

Most of the time when we hear the word “surgery” one of the first things that come to mind is a long, tedious recovery process. Images of spending days if not weeks or months in bed, missing important events of family or friends, and falling behind on critical projects at work seep into our minds. Thankfully in the case of Laser Eye Surgery, this slightly dramatised idea couldn’t be any further from the truth. In fact, as soon as you sit up…Read more

Can I go blind from the procedure?

Along with vaccines, the zombie apocalypse, and anything that has wings, losing my eyesight is up there among my biggest fears. Most of the things that give me the heebie-jeebies are embarrassingly either non-life threatening, or just plain silly. They’ve in some way or another manifested themselves in my brain to cause an emotional response whenever thought of or encountered. I’ll never forget, growing up as the quiet wimpy kid, the time when I hid in the bathroom on the day of…Read more

How long will I need to take off work?

Your eyes have an incredible defence and healing power. They filter out dust and dirt, heal scratches within a matter of hours, and recover and adapt to adjustments made during Laser Eye Surgery in a very short time. For us, that means little down time moping around the house and more time enjoying our new improved vision. In fact, in as little as 24 hours after Laser Eye Surgery, the majority of patients are getting back to their normal routines, driving for…Read more

How should I choose a provider for my vision correction

I spend way too much of life making decisions. Choosing between brands of tinned tomatoes; picking the right hotel to stay in; deciding whether to go through town or take the motorway to try to skip the traffic. So you can imagine when it comes to a big decision like buying a house or choosing a Laser Eye Surgery provider, things gets a little more complicated. With the seemingly endless amount of options, offers, types, and prices, how do you even begin…Read more

The number one reason Londoners have Laser Eye Surgery

Along with the likes of New York, Paris and Tokyo, London is known as one of the world’s leading global cities. The capital has become a central hub and a magnet for talent, drawing people from all over the globe and producing world-class performers in everything from the arts and media to finance and healthcare. It’s unsurprising then that ever since the 19th century, London has been a centre of medical excellence; with Harley Street, in particular, being recognised for its large…Read more

Dom Joly: I’ve seen the light

Reproduced from: Cotswold Life I had 20/20 vision until about five years ago. In fact, I think I had better than 20/20 vision. Can you have 30/20 vision? Whatever, I could see stuff really well and would secretly chuckle at the genetically unfortunate amongst us who needed glasses, bi-focals, contact lenses, etc. Then… it happened. Age, that is. About five years ago I started finding it harder and harder to read things. At first I just thought I must be tired… or…Read more

How should I decide if vision correction is right for me?

When lined up against contact lenses and glasses, Laser Eye Surgery is the Ferrari of vision correction treatment. 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
