Looking after your eyes camping during festival season

You’re planning to go hiking, camping, or to a festival, but between making sure you have everything packed and finalising arrangements, you’re lucky if you have time to give your eyes a thought. Yet other than your legs, sense of hearing, and the folding chairs, clear vision is one of the most important things you need for your trip. And so, especially if you wear contacts, it bears taking a few minutes to stop and consider the risks to your eyes and… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery by surgeons, not companies

It’s often pretty clear how you know if someone sees what they do as much more than just a job. They’re most comfortable talking about what they do, so when you ask them anything that’s even slightly related to it their eyes light up and then you can’t shut them up. They work even when they don’t have to, and, of course, spend most their spare time thinking about it. And if given the choice to do anything else, even retire right… Read more

The road to better vision – part 2

Change can be dramatic – a sudden trauma or event – but can also be so gradual that we barely notice. Maybe its that extra kilo or two that sneak on each year until suddenly you look back at photos of you ten years ago, significantly healthier looking.

Instead of a nice pleasant aaahhhh at the lovely fresh spring air, what comes out is more like an arghhhh!! as you run sneezing and tearing to the bathroom to dig out your… Read more

Quick guide: Laser Eye Surgery recovery

Which part of the body heals the fastest? How about the skin: the largest organ in the body and our outer barrier to the world that has to endure scratching, scrapes, cuts, abrasions, burns, and a whole heap of abuse every day. Or what about something like the liver? Our largest internal organ that never stops filtering blood, supporting the digestive system, and detoxifying the barrage of chemicals and toxins we pound it with. Well, although superficial scrapes on the skin can heal… Read more

What Is 20/20 Or 6/6 Normal Vision? [VIDEO]

In this short video Mr Glenn Carp explains 20/20 and 6/6: Mr Glenn Carp – “The main concern of having 6/6 vision or 20/20 normal vision really comes from whether you are based in the United Kingdom or you are based in America. It is really just to do with feet and metres. 6/6 means you see at 6 metres what an average person can see at six metres, and 20/20 is the equivalent in feet, twenty feet versus twenty feet. So… Read more

Can my sight get worse after Laser Eye Surgery? [VIDEO]

You’ve got to get a clear picture of how it works: by removing tissue in the cornea and therefore permanently changing your eye’s focusing power.

An interview with Professor Reinstein on Laser Blended Vision and ReLEx SMILE

Laser Blended Vision is a sophisticated laser eye surgery treatment to get around the effects of ageing of the eye (presbyopia), which was devised by myself, here at the London Vision Clinic in 2004 and implemented by Carl Zeiss into their laser platform as PRESBYOND® in 2009. Laser Blended Vision is modified binocular vision (vision using both eyes with an overlapping field of vision) and we intentionally correct the eyes slightly differently. The dominant eye is focused to see mainly distance to… Read more
