A quick eye health check

Sight is one of the senses we use the most. And yet, it’s also one of the senses that gets the most overlooked (no pun intended) when it comes care. This isn’t surprising. When they are working perfectly well, we never notice our eyes. They humbly toil away in the background with their over two million working parts, allowing us to see the world in all its glory as well as supporting all of our other senses. For example, the brain can evaluate the… Read more

Debunking the most common eye myths

Ideas about how our eyes work have undergone many changes throughout history. In ancient Greece, for example, Plato’s “emission theory” suggested that we emit beams of light from our eyes in order to illuminate and see objects. Another Greek, Empedocles, believed that Aphrodite made the human eye out of the four elements — fire, air, earth, and water.  She then made sight possible by lighting the fire in the eye and allowing it to shine out. In most parts of the world, such… Read more

A brief anatomy of the eye

The eye is one of the most complex structures known to man. We use it in almost every single activity, including sleep whilst we are dreaming, and it provides many with what they consider to be their most precious sense.

How the seasons affect your eyes

The mere passing of time brings about many changes in the weather and our environment. If you live somewhere in the Earth’s middle latitudes, you’ll know these changes are categorised into the four seasons — spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Traditionally, many people would orientate their whole lives around the four seasons. Today, not so much as more of us live in cities and work in offices. But nevertheless, we still have to take into account their numerous effects on our bodies… Read more

London Vision Clinic is helping to reduce preventable and unnecessary blindness in Nepal

The World Health Organisation estimates that 39 million people around the world suffer from blindness. Of that population, over 50% of avoidable cases are caused by untreated cataracts, closely followed by uncorrected refractive error.1 In Nepal, only the privileged few can afford sight restoring cataract or corrective eye surgery. Even buying a pair of glasses is out of most people’s reach. That’s why we have been focusing our efforts on two key projects: the establishment of a Refractive Surgery Unit in Kathmandu… Read more
