The Annual 4th Of July Barbecue For Patients

The Annual 4th Of July Barbecue For Patients In Spain (my home since 1989) I am a member of a classic car club. Before you get the wrong idea, let me make it quite clear that my set of wheels, despite undoubtedly qualifying as “classic”, are not exactly glamorous. That said, I’ve grown rather fond of “Dolly”, the Triumph Dolomite in its rather unflattering mustard shade (officially known as “Inca Gold”). I especially like the fact that many people of a certain… Read more

The Right Hand Man

The Right Hand Man Eyes are like finger prints – not, of course, because we have them sprouting ET-like on the end of a single digit – but because they are unique. The odds on finding two people with the exact same prescription are quite rare; but when you add into the equation the structure and shape of the eye – its curvature and corneal thickness  as well as all its other wondrous complexities – then you are talking of odds as … Read more

Movers And Shakers And Flying Lasers

Movers And Shakers And Flying Lasers A pile of neatly stacked bright blue crates met me in the hall as I opened the front door to the London Vision Clinic at 8 Devonshire Place …maybe for the last time. Nothing brought home “the move” quite like those blue crates waiting to be filled with office papers and other paraphernalia of the clinic’s life. For instance, one of the crates might well become the temporary home of the carefully wrapped emblematic jar of… Read more

The Long And Winding Road To Harley Street

The Long And Winding Road To Harley Street So why did the London Vision Clinic need to move from their cosy Devonshire Place home of the last six years? The answer lies in the word “cosy”. The clinic’s premises had become just too snug a fit for the business which has tripled in size since March 2003. When the clinic first moved into the basement at Number 8 there were two consulting rooms and the operating room. A counselling room and additional… Read more

Chasing Pavements

Chasing Pavements May 23rd 2009 was the expected day for the launch of the London Vision Clinic’s new and fabulous website – and, co-incidentally, the official birthday of this blog. It was also the day that I moved into my London base (after living outside the UK for more than thirty years); and – much more significantly – that warm and sunny Bank Holiday  was to have been D Day for the London Vision Clinic’s move from their Devonshire Place home into… Read more

About Suitability

In the most common visual acuity test, an optometrist begins by placing an eye chart at a standard distance of twenty feet, or six metres away from you, depending on the customary unit of measure. At this distance, the symbols on the line representing “normal” acuity on the eye chart, designated 20/20, is the smallest line that a person with normal acuity can read at a distance of twenty feet. It’s possible to see better than the norm, though, which optometrists express… Read more

About Enhancing Your Reading Vision

How Long Will The Effects Of PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision Last? To watch Glenn Carp explain the answer to this question in a video click here. PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision will only treat the effects of presbyopia, not the root cause. With or without laser eye surgery, the lens in the eye will steadily become less flexible, and the muscles that pull it into focus become less powerful. As presbyopia develops, our ability to adjust to vision at various distances will continue… Read more
