8 Things you can’t do wearing contact lens

When you first start wearing contact lenses, it can be like receiving your ticket to visual freedom — especially if you’ve worn glasses for a long time. But as the days and weeks and years pass, the reality of what you’ve bought into becomes all too clear. You start seeing how much of a hinderance contacts actually are, their benefits start to fade into the background, and you begin wondering if they’re actually the convenient and promising solution you thought they were.… Read more

Sitting Down With… Dan Reinstein Medical Director, London Vision Clinic, London, UK.

  Being a doctor puts you in the extremely unique and privileged position to attend important moments in people’s lives – delivering a baby, being present when someone is told they have a fatal diagnosis, witnessing severe psychotic behaviour, or performing surgery. My career choice came down to choosing a specialty where I’d be using my academic strengths in math and physics, alongside my human strength of engaging with patients of all ages. I also wanted to become a surgeon, but needed… Read more

At what prescription do you become legally blind?

You would think knowing if you were blind or not would be a simple thing. You can’t see nothin’. The world beyond your nose is just one big blur, and trying to do anything without your contacts or glasses always ends in harm or disaster. But nothing is ever that simple, and not least our vision. Your eyes are one of the most complex systems in the known universe, and there are as many types and degrees of vision as there are shades… Read more

We are all biologically engineered to protect our eyes

With our bodies having various mechanisms and systems built in to protect itself, it’s no surprise we’re hardwired to stop any harm coming to our eyes. This is, of course, a great evolutionary adaptation. We are incredibly conscious about anything coming near them, including wasps, sand, and child-sized fingers. It can become somewhat problematic, though, when you’re faced with the situation in which your eyes aren’t functioning correctly and the body can’t do anything to improve them. All your instincts that urge… Read more

The most common fears of Laser Eye Surgery

As humans, there are certain basic fears we’re born with. Things like being separated or rejected from a group and suffering a loss of autonomy that leaves us unable to take care of ourselves. As a function of these basic fears, we’re biologically wired to prevent anything happening to us that may in any way lead to one or more of them playing out. It’s why we don’t like heights, climbing into small spaces, going underwater, or being alone for too long. It’s also… Read more

Here’s to the readers, the adventurers, the young-at-hearters

If Dylan Thomas’s 1947 poem, “Do not go gentle into that good night”, could be summed up in one line, it would be: “Old age should burn and rave at close of day”. But it can’t be. Although short and concise as it is, Thomas crafted every single word to try and convey the full power of his feelings on a very personal matter, his father’s imminent death, and get across exactly why he shouldn’t give up on life and instead “Rage, rage… Read more

What’s the best view in London?

Even if you live in London, you can go weeks or months without really seeing it. Your eyes can see to a level of quality and detail that’s equivalent a 576-megapixel camera. But when caught up in the mix of all the hustle and bustle, all that power can be dedicated solely to navigating tourists and dodging traffic. Not to mention chuggers and cyclists. And even if you’re just visiting for the weekend, your eye’s field of view is simply not wide… Read more

8 Things you should definitely not do whilst wearing specs

When you first become a glasses wearer, you’re blissfully unaware that as well as signing up to rent your vision, you’re also signing away the right to do many things that were once simple and pleasurable. Your optometrist doesn’t tell you this, and it’s not like it’s all laid out somewhere in the small print. They’re simply something you have to discover and suffer through yourself. Commiserations if you recognise any of these small but incredibly frustrating complications of glasses on our… Read more
