A day in the life of an ophthalmic surgeon

The human eye is one of the most complex optical systems known to man. With their over two million working parts, each eye collects light, regulates it, focuses it, and finally converts it into the image you see of the world. To tinker with this system is not a job for the faint-hearted. And so, despite the average eye being less than two inches across, there is a pretty large group of specialist roles within medicine whose primary job is to study… Read more

A quick eye health check

Sight is one of the senses we use the most. And yet, it’s also one of the senses that gets the most overlooked (no pun intended) when it comes care. This isn’t surprising. When they are working perfectly well, we never notice our eyes. They humbly toil away in the background with their over two million working parts, allowing us to see the world in all its glory as well as supporting all of our other senses. For example, the brain can evaluate the… Read more

Debunking the most common eye myths

Ideas about how our eyes work have undergone many changes throughout history.

Another Greek, Empedocles, believed that Aphrodite made the human eye out of the four elements — fire, air, earth, and water.  She then made sight possible by lighting the fire in the eye and allowing it to shine out. In most parts of the world, such… Read more

Today, thanks to modern advancements in science and technology, we know the two globular organs better than ever before in history. Typically measuring just 24mm in diameter, our actual eyeballs are suspended in bony sockets by a series of muscles and cushioned and protected from… Read more
