How does blended Laser Eye Surgery work?

If you’re anything like me, you won’t dive into a new therapy, course of medication, or treatment until you know everything there is to know about it. It’s an admirable trait — albeit one that can become annoying when encountering conflicting information and reviews online, to later realise you’ve spent six hours non-stop staring at a screen. Fortunately, your research session today won’t end with you as a whirring, hazy lump, lying eyes wide on the couch or in bed. Here we’re going…Read more

What does freedom from glasses really mean?

As a species, we are terrible when it comes to making changes in our lives. But contrary to what most people think, there’s a lot more to it than simply pizza and Netflix being easier than embracing the cold and hitting the gym; it comes down to an inbuilt physiological response in the making for thousands of years. If we look back to see how our ancestors lived, it’s much easier to understand. Throughout human history, most of the time breaking from the norm…Read more

Laser Eye Surgery treatment types

There are laser eye treatments then there are laser eye treatments. What’s the difference I hear you ask? Well, on the surface, not much. But the thing is you can walk into one high street provider and find a long list of treatments, with names like UltraLASEK, Epi-LASEK, Epi-LASIK, Custom LASIK, and Zyoptix. Yet you could walk into another and see a completely different list, maybe with UltraLASEKplus and Wavefront LASIK on it. Or, even more confusingly, you could visit an independent clinic…Read more

Understanding your eyes

What weighs 7 grams, is on average an inch across, has over 2 million working parts, and is more than 550 million years old? No, it’s not some corny joke pulled straight from a Christmas cracker. The answer is as real as the world you see around you. Given that hint and the title of this article, you may have guessed I’m talking about the two spherical organs found above our cheek bones, known in nature as ‘camera-type eyes’. As the windows through which…Read more

Laser eye treatments

Have you ever read a description of a new product, treatment, or therapy, and immediately switched off due to an excess of overcomplicated jargon? I mean, what’s the point in using complex and technical language if they know it will fly straight over the heads of the vast majority of people? It’s a good question — and one that reveals a lot about the company or person behind the particular product or service they are selling. You’ll find this when browsing the Laser…Read more

What are the pros and cons: LASIK vs PRK/LASEK vs SMILE?

So you’ve learned a little bit about Laser Eye Surgery and the incredible benefits it has to offer. 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. And after visiting various clinics and doing your research, you’ve discovered that despite the huge list of brand names of treatments — including UltraLASIK, Accu-wave LASIK, Custom LASIK, and Zyoptix — there are actually only three main treatment types,…Read more

Your sight as you get older

From the moment we are born, we’re fighting against our ever-ticking biological clocks. Scientists believe before the age of 25 we’re pretty good at winning this fight, our bodies temporarily recovering from the effects of ageing and cell death. However, when we reach about the age of 40, ageing ramps up its army and weapons arsenal, and the real battle gets underway. After the body has dug deep into its reserves and recruited the last of its troops, the death of cells in the body…Read more

What is an astigmatism and how can Laser Eye Surgery help to cure it?

Astigmatism is such a common condition that some doctors believe most the population suffer from it to some degree. There are several types of astigmatism, all caused by imperfections in the curvature of the cornea or the shape of the eye’s lens. The cornea is the clear, round dome like membrane that sits on the surface of the eye and covers the iris and pupil. Its job is to act as a protective layer and prevent anything from disrupting the layers underneath. As…Read more

A guide to good eye health

As a general rule, we tend to take best care of the parts of the body we can see. We wash our hair religiously, brush our teeth without compromise, bathe our skin in moisturiser, relax our muscles when they are sore. Of course, this makes a lot of sense; it’s difficult to maintain something that’s hidden behind layers and layers of tissue (or clothes). Vital organs like our livers and intestines don’t make an appearance when we look at ourselves in the mirror…Read more
