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

Lasik lasek prk smile … what do they all mean?

Laser Eye Surgery is one of those things many people shut down without a second thought. I mean, even despite the unfortunate pairing of ‘laser’ and ‘eye’, who wants to spend all their time running between clinics, attempting to decode marketing jargon and medical terminology and figure out the differences between clinics and treatments? Some people are missing out, though, as once you get beyond all the confusing branding and hyped-up promotions, Laser Eye Surgery is incredibly easy to understand. You can…Read more

You don’t need to suffer with reading glasses or bi-focals

Squinting when trying to read fine print, holding the newspaper further and further away from your face, avoiding labels on products when shopping — sound familiar? To anyone who’s suffering from presbyopia, the condition which describes the loss of quality in near vision that typically occurs in your mid-forties, these symptoms will be all too familiar. Maybe you were diagnosed by your optician, or maybe you recognised the symptoms? However you came to find out, one thing’s for sure: you probably think…Read more

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
