As seen on TED [Video]

In 1948, Spanish ophthalmologist Jose Ignacio Barraquer Moner was fed up with relying on external aids to see well. He wanted a solution for blurry vision that would fix the eye itself, without the need of wearing glasses. The answer he came up with was something called “keratomileusis”, a surgical technique that alters vision by reshaping the cornea. And the rest is history. Today, we know this procedure as LASIK, a treatment for everything from shortsightedness and longsightedness to astigmatism and presbyopia.… Read more

Fireworks & bonfires: Do take care

Fireworks are delightful inventions that bring fun and enjoyment to everyone (except maybe dogs and old people). But they’re also small dangerous missiles packed with gunpowder that fire ‘payloads’ at hundreds of miles an hour into the sky to explode in a (hopefully) controlled and artistic way. Without sounding like too much of a party pooper, it’s the same story for bonfires. Despite the fact that for millennia they’ve kept us warm and provided us with a focal point for getting together,… Read more

Jade rollers, a jade paint-roller type tool, to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck. And bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy, to name just a few. As usual,… Read more

In our experience, the worst part of Laser Eye Surgery always comes before the treatment. This might sound surprising at first. After all, Laser Eye Surgery involves lasers and your eyes. However, it’s pretty much the same story for most big events in our lives. Even those that do actually involve some discomfort and pain — which Laser Eye Surgery doesn’t. It’s the anxiety of sitting and waiting to speak in front of a crowd. It’s the sleepless nights worrying about the… Read more
