Treating Myopia (Short sightedness) With Laser Eye Surgery

If you are short-sighted, your eyeball is slightly longer and rounder than it should be. This means the light converges just in front of the retina, creating a blurred image at distance. Myopia is usually corrected with glasses or contact lenses. But it is also an ideal condition for laser eye treatment. By slightly reshaping the front of the cornea, the light is refocused precisely on the retina, eliminating short-sightedness. Lucy, a patient, discusses her challenges with being severely short sighted, and finds… Read more

Treating Hyperopia (Long Sightedness) With Laser Eye Surgery

If you’re long-sighted, your eyeball is shorter and flatter than it needs to be. That means it focuses the light on a point just behind the retina, creating a blurred image. Hyperopia affects near vision first, and later in life both distance and near vision. Often, if you’re long-sighted, you can sharpen near objects with a conscious effort, which tends to cause headaches. Long-sightedness is relatively common, affecting about one in four people. Usually, it’s an inherited condition. In fact, nearly all… Read more

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision: A revolutionary treatment for presbyopia

First available in the UK at London Vision Clinic, PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision is an innovative treatment for ageing eyes which was pioneered by Professor Dan Reinstein. Presbyopia literally translates as ‘old eye’. Unfortunately, ageing affects the eye just as it affects every other part of the body. Starting in early middle age, the lens inside the eye begins to lose its ability to change shape ‘zoom’ from distance to near and back. As we can’t avoid ageing, nobody is immune to… Read more
