A guide to good eye health

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 in the morning, and so they’re easily forgotten or, quite simply, ignored. The same can’t be said for our eyes,… Read more

Sooner or later you should visit a clinic

Because there is so much information available and so many places where you can go to find things out, it’s easy to spend a lot of time researching and planning and very little time actually doing. This is true for anything: decorating the lounge, buying a new house, going on holiday, or simply buying a new yoga mat. However, with an abundance of information out there online, it is especially true for more serious decisions like Laser Eye Surgery. When you are… Read more

Sooner or later you should visit a clinic

How should you feel after your initial consultation?

From the initial consultation, you will be able to tell a lot about the clinic and how the rest of the process is going to unfold. For instance, some clinics rush through the initial consultation, spending as little as an hour drawing up your treatment plan before sending you on your way and moving onto the next person. Others, however, spend as long as three and a half hours with you. Not only is the experience more relaxed and friendlier, but it… Read more

5 Common age-related eye problems

Crystal clear vision is something we typically associate with youth and expect to fade away as the years go by. And whereas it is true that the eyes go through the natural ageing process and do degrade, like any other part of the body, this doesn’t mean you can’t retain a clear and youthful view of the world. Retaining your vision as you age isn’t something that is completely out of your control. There are certain conditions you may be more likely… Read more

Being nervous on the day of your surgery is normal

We fear what we don’t know. And of course, there’s no way of knowing what it’s going to be like to have Laser Eye Surgery and what the outcome is going to be until you have it. For this reason, a little fear and nerves are completely normal. It helps get your excited and remind you that you are doing something incredibly important and that the decision is not to be taken lightly. All that being said, a good clinic will make… Read more

These are the colours your eyes can’t see

From an early age, we’re lead to believe that the so-called colour spectrum contains all the colours out there. And it’s true, if you are only considering colours that are perceptible by a normal human eye. Colour is the limited range of light along the electromagnetic spectrum that humans can see. In other words, colours are the way your brain, and mine, by use of our eyes, interpret a stream of minute energy packets radiating at varying frequencies in a wave motion.… Read more

Recovery After Laser Eye Surgery

Most patients report that they are surprised by how quickly they recover after having Laser Eye Surgery. Many of our patients are completely overwhelmed with the clarity of vision almost immediately after the procedure—we were lucky enough to capture this moment on camera with ITV’s Philip Schofield. Take a look at his reaction. Although many of our patients experience a similar revelation to Philip, it’s worth pointing out that, for some people, recovery can take a little longer – and that this… Read more

The incredible vision of a south-east African tribe

Our vision adapts to the world we live in. But natural evolution can only move so fast, and there’s no limit to the speed at which the world can change. So, when in just a few generations the average person’s day shifts from spending hours out in wide-open spaces, full of natural light, different colours and contrasts, and moving objects at varying distances, to sitting in an office in a city and staring at a computer screen all day, it’s no surprise… Read more

What do your eyes reveal about who you are?

Everyone has heard the saying “the eyes are the windows to the soul”. It’s been so overused in advertising and daily speech that it’s almost lost all meaning. But like most cliches, there’s a reason it has stuck around in the public consciousness. Mentioned in the bible in Matthew 6 22-23, and being very similar to proverbs in several languages, such as the French, ‘Les yeux sont le miroir de l’dme’, “The eyes are the mirror of the soul”, the saying bears a… Read more

Dolphins, eagles and other animals with better vision than you

When it comes to a lot of natural abilities, humans are by far top of the pile. We can use tools like cutlery and computers and surgical equipment to improve our lives and society as a whole. We can conceive complex, multidimensional ideas, and project into the future and think back long into the past. And when it comes to vision, well, we can see pretty well. We can perceive a decent range of the colour spectrum. We can see stars that… Read more
