The only reason you should be scared of Laser Eye Surgery

There was a woman in her late 40s who recently visited the clinic, let’s call her Mandy, who was so reluctant to come in she was pretty much dragged through the door by her daughter. Mandy peered at everything in the clinic — the walls, staff, the plants — through suspicious eyes, untrusting of everything and unnerved by this mysterious procedure she’d heard so vastly opposing opinions about. There was also a man of a similar age, let’s call him Bob, who popped…Read more

5 Natural beauty tips for vibrant and healthy eyes

In 2017, a ton of new health and beauty trends came and went.

When you have good eyesight, it’s easy to take many of the everyday pleasures in life for granted: having a trouble-free shower, reading menus and text messages, rolling around with the kids, waking up and knowing where you are. You’d think having first to perform a fiddly ritual of putting your contacts in or finding your glasses would make you appreciate these things more. But they don’t. In fact, they make you infinitely more stressed than you ever would have been without…Read more

Fitting Laser Eye Surgery into a hectic work schedule

How many times has someone said to you, “don’t worry, it will only take a minute”, for it to take around six hours, completely disrupt your meticulously planned out schedule, and after all is said and done, seem to set you back several days? Working as part of a large team, this happens to me all the time — often several times a day. And it frustrates the hell out of me. Time is limited and I want to get as much out…Read more

Long term effects of Laser Eye Surgery

There’s no getting around the fact that Laser Eye Surgery is a pretty young procedure, with the first formal treatments being carried out around twenty-five years ago. So even though it rapidly exploded in popularity and over thirty million people have already received the treatment, no one has lived over a quarter of a decade with the results. This creates a bit of a sore point in the talk about the long terms effects of Laser Eye Surgery. Sure, experts can reference…Read more

Laser Eye Surgery for older patients

The last thing you want as you get older is to have surgery. The uncomfortable feeling of being in hospital, the lengthy recovery times, the hassle and expense — not to mention the worry the procedure won’t work as desired. But all that is nothing compared to if the surgery is directly related to the fact you’re getting older.

Short sighted eye surgery

If you’re shortsighted, Laser Eye Surgery was made for you — literally. One of the earliest laser procedures, PRK, was specifically developed to treat short-sightedness, also known as myopia. But even long before PRK was introduced, surgeons were using Laser Eye Surgery to free people from poor near vision. That’s because myopia is one of the most common and easiest to treat refractive errors. It occurs due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors disrupting the normal growth of the eye, leading it…Read more

Contact lenses vs glasses: Which provides better vision?

If you’ve ever worn contacts and glasses, you’ve probably noticed your quality of vision differs between the two — particularly when transitioning from one after a long period of time wearing the other. The weird thing about this is that it can happen even both are of the same prescription. Surely if they’re the same prescription and therefore the same strength lens and the same focusing power, then they should provide the same standard of vision, right? Well, it’s true they have the same…Read more
