Looking after your eyes camping during festival season

You’re planning to go hiking, camping, or to a festival, but between making sure you have everything packed and finalising arrangements, you’re lucky if you have time to give your eyes a thought. Yet other than your legs, sense of hearing, and the folding chairs, clear vision is one of the most important things you need for your trip. And so, especially if you wear contacts, it bears taking a few minutes to stop and consider the risks to your eyes and… Read more

What If I Am Currently Wearing Contact Lenses? [Video]

Contact lenses are an incredible invention that enable glasses wearers to avoid daily frustration and do many things they couldn’t before. However, as little plastic disks that sit on your eyeball, they’re not free from their own issue and some rather unexpected effects. Along with increasing your chances of infection and reducing the thickness of your cornea, contacts also, over time, change the shape of the eye. This effect isn’t anything you really need to worry about as it likely won’t affect… Read more

Normal Symptoms You May Experience After LASIK Laser Eye Surgery

Going in for any type of procedure can be daunting. Especially one that involves your eyes. Because our eyes are so precious, it’s even common to feel a little anxious after the surgery as well, even if it went great and the outcome is beyond belief (as is the case for the vast majority of people). The fact is worry isn’t something that is easily quelled or prevented due to facts and logic. We worry if we’re going to in the 0.0001… Read more

Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If I Have Macular Degeneration? [video]

The leading cause of sight loss in the UK, macular degeneration is a common visual condition that affects millions of people around the world. Although it’s most often considered as age-related, macular degeneration is a genetic condition that can affect anyone at any time. Macular degeneration comes in two types, “early” or “dry” (the most common), which involves the thinning of the retina, and “exudative” or “wet”, which involves normal blood vessels growing underneath the retina. Both typically affect your ability to… Read more

Corneal Erosion: The Treatment And Symptoms

Ever woken up in the morning and felt as though your eyes were not only dry, but also light sensitive, sore, and even pretty painful?

On top of that, have you noticed that you also suffer from headaches or blurred vision at the same time as this discomfort? If you answered yes to more than two of the above questions, then the chances are pretty… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery treat Strabismus and squints? [VIDEO]

Can Laser Eye Surgery help you if you have stabismus, otherwise known as a squint? Traditionally, strabismus or squints cannot be treated with Laser Eye Surgery as squint surgery involves altering the muscles around the eye, and Laser Eye Surgery doesn’t. However, times are changing and every single person is different. And so today, such a clear cut answer can actually be a bit misleading. If you have strabismus, Laser Eye Surgery will not interact with the condition. This means it won’t… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery by surgeons, not companies

It’s often pretty clear how you know if someone sees what they do as much more than just a job. They’re most comfortable talking about what they do, so when you ask them anything that’s even slightly related to it their eyes light up and then you can’t shut them up. They work even when they don’t have to, and, of course, spend most their spare time thinking about it. And if given the choice to do anything else, even retire right… Read more

The road to better vision – part 2

Change can be dramatic – a sudden trauma or event – but can also be so gradual that we barely notice. Maybe its that extra kilo or two that sneak on each year until suddenly you look back at photos of you ten years ago, significantly healthier looking. Or like me, maybe it’s your eyesight – once so crisp and clear – but slowly deteriorated to the point of being unsafe and difficult to function. I didn’t want to acknowledge the change.… Read more

Arghh!! Hayfever and contact lens woes

The sun is high in the sky and the flowers are in bloom. It’s the first few days of spring — one of the best times of the year. So, you jump out of bed, and without thinking, draw the curtains, open the windows wide, and take one big, long, deep breath in. Instead of a nice pleasant aaahhhh at the lovely fresh spring air, what comes out is more like an arghhhh!! as you run sneezing and tearing to the bathroom to dig out your… Read more

Quick guide: Laser Eye Surgery recovery

Which part of the body heals the fastest? How about the skin: the largest organ in the body and our outer barrier to the world that has to endure scratching, scrapes, cuts, abrasions, burns, and a whole heap of abuse every day. Or what about something like the liver? Our largest internal organ that never stops filtering blood, supporting the digestive system, and detoxifying the barrage of chemicals and toxins we pound it with. Well, although superficial scrapes on the skin can heal… Read more
