Best time of year for Laser Eye Surgery

The 18th-century English theologian John Trusler once said, there’s “no time like the present, a thousand unforeseen circumstances may interrupt you at a future time”. I don’t know about you, but when I hear such things I feel like the literary greats and wise philosophers of yesteryears had a window right into 21st-century life. And even more eerily, directly into my own scattered mind. Dithering is my middle name. Most of my life is spent weighing up options, getting lost down endless tangents, and putting off…Read more

Astigmatism and Lasik surgery

According to some eye experts, all of us have astigmatism to some degree or other. But not all of us suffer from the eye strain, headaches, and fatigue that comes with the more severe cases. For this, unless you like spending your days squinting and rubbing your temples, you need some sort of corrective eyewear to function properly — or at least you used to. In the past, the best way and only way to treat astigmatism was with glasses or toric/hard contact…Read more

Options for eye laser surgery

Today, it’s hard enough to choose what wine to drink and TV series to watch, never mind whether to have laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis or small incision lenticule extraction to fix your vision. And to make things worse, we’re wired to weigh up every single option before making our decision. The marketing departments of high street clinics know this all too well, conjuring up names like UltraLASIK, Zyoptix, and Accu-wave LASIK to attract attention and bring more unwitting customers through their doors. But just like…Read more

The risks of coloured or tinted contact lens

Today, contact lenses are sold around the world for many more reasons than solely improving vision. In the East — particularly places like Japan and Korea — circle lenses or ‘Big Eye’ contacts are hugely popular for getting that cute-but-creepy dolly-eyed effect so often seen in anime and manga. In the West, stars like Lady Gaga and Kanye West have helped popularise cosmetic contacts. Here the focus is less on the size of the iris and more on the different and unique…Read more

Glasses vs contacts vs surgery

If you want to improve your vision, you have three choices: glasses, contacts, or Laser Eye Surgery. And listed from the smallest to the largest commitment, most people progress through them in that order — over many, many stress and pain-filled years.

Laser Eye Surgery for astigmatism

In the later stages of his life, Charles Darwin once wrote to a friend, “The eye to this day gives me a cold shudder”. Even himself, the father of the theory of evolution, had doubts to whether an organ as complex as the human eye could have arisen through the process of natural selection. But it’s even more unlikely it didn’t. And so Darwin came to the conclusion it must have developed over hundreds of millions of years. Today, experts believe it can…Read more

Never wear glasses or contact lenses again

In the early hours of January 1st this year, after one too many gin tonics, my friend slipped on some ice, faceplanted the pavement, chipped her front tooth, and received her first gift of the New Year: a grade III ankle sprain. Normally incredibly active and incapable of sitting still for thirty seconds, she was bound to crutches for nearly two months. That meant no sport, exercise, or even skipping up the stairs. Or in her words, “This year is cursed I can’t…Read more

Fed up of the constant on/off of reading glasses?

Only needing visual aid for some distances and not others presents a unique problem for wearers of reading glasses: where to put the damn things when you’re not wearing them. You don’t want to always wear a shirt with a breast pocket and you’d rather not hang them from a chain around your neck like an old fashioned librarian; the only solution you’ve found is to have hundreds of pairs strewn all over the place — at home, at work, in the car, under the…Read more

George Chesterton of GQ Magazine has Laser Blended Vision

To be an editor for one of the world’s leading publications, you need to be many things. You need to be a critic for detail and an expert in seeing the bigger picture. You need to be as impartial as a judge and as opinionated as a Kardashian. But above all, you need to be tough. As an editor is often the last to lay eyes on a piece before it goes public, they need to be relied upon to make the…Read more

The top tip to looking younger: don’t wear reading glasses

There’s no shortage of anti ageing and beauty tips that promise to turn back the years. But no matter what they may be, there’s always a catch. It could be a powerful herb from the Amazonian rainforest that can give you the skin of a teenager, but only if you can find and bathe in it for 8 hours every day. It may be a risky surgical procedure that tightens up loose skin, but at the same time leaves you with a huge scar and…Read more
