Can I eat or drink prior to my Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’ve ever had surgery in the past, it’s likely you’ll be familiar with the period of fasting that comes beforehand. If your surgery was a morning procedure, then this may have just meant skipping breakfast. But if you had it scheduled for midday or later, this could have meant going more than 12 hours without eating. Fasting certainly has its uses, but for me, having to do it during the hours leading up to surgery is far from ideal. Comfort food… Read more

What Can Damage Your Eyes?

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery vs Clear Lens Exchange (IOLs)

Working out whether to have Laser Eye Surgery or Clear Lens Exchange intra-ocular lens (IOL) procedure can be a tricky process. The two procedures both have their unique advantages, and they work in distinctly different ways. Whereas Clear Lens Exchange works by replacing the eye’s natural lens and is a common solution to cataracts, Laser Eye Surgery adjusts the eye’s natural lens and is considered a safer and more effective way to treat refractive errors like shortsightedness and longsightedness.  That being said,… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends?

What is The Likelihood of Needing an Enhancement? [video]

Laser Eye Surgery is similar to glasses and contacts in that, if it’s not up to standard, you can always have it done again or go elsewhere. The thing is, though, unlike glasses and contacts, you expect Laser Eye Surgery to be a one-time jobby. And it is — the vast majority of people who have it never need to return to the clinic again other than for their scheduled aftercare appointments. There are, however, a small number of cases when their… Read more

Hayfever In Your Eyes And Contact Lenses, Reasons To Consider Laser Eye Surgery

Contact lenses provide a welcome relief from glasses, but unfortunately they don’t come without their own problems. The inconvenience of lenses steaming up, breaking an arm or nose bridge, and of course visiting the optometrist, is replaced by other troublesome occurrences which can often be more concerning.
