Laser Eye Surgery really is transformational

When you hear that Laser Eye Surgery is performed over fifteen thousands times every year in just the UK, it’s difficult to really get a sense of what that means. That’s thousands of people’s who’ve had their lives transformed in pretty much an instant. Young and old people, mothers and daughters, charity workers and CEOs; they all suffered in one form or another from poor vision, and Laser Eye Surgery was able to help them all live freer and fuller lives. To help… Read more

If he was alive today, would John Lennon have had Laser Eye Surgery?

What do Mahatma Gandhi, Buddy Holley, Sarah Palin, and John Lennon all have in common? They didn’t all lead India to freedom in their underwear. But they did have a significant impact on fashion, whether intentionally or unintentionally, thanks to their distinctive eyewear. Gandhi and his round metal-rimmed spectacles (and robes) caused him to have nearly as many style copycats as he had religious followers. Holly and his iconic thick black frames were arguably as influential and groundbreaking as his music. Palin’s wide… Read more

Ditch the specs and grow old disgracefully

As you get older and the day arrives on which you wake up and suddenly realise you’ve become an “old” person, there are certain rules you must begin to follow. Whether this is carrying around hankies everywhere with you, investing in a new dressing gown or perhaps buying sensible and supportive footwear. Stick to such rules, along with the most important of all, always keeping your reading glasses on hand, and you may just keep your dignity and grow old gracefully. But… Read more

Why laser is a better solution if you have an astigmatism

Just like no nose is totally straight and no lips perfectly round and plump (at least naturally), no eye is one hundred percent spherical. The reality is, then, that most people have some degree of astigmatism — an abnormal curvature of the eye that causes light to focus unevenly on the retina. If you’re reading this, chances are your two little globular organs are a little more irregularly shaped than the next person. Depending on the severity of your astigmatism, they may even resemble… Read more

Staying hydrated — And why it’s important for your eyes

You know when you’re dehydrated. No matter what you do and how many litres of water you drink, you just can’t seem to take enough fluid in. This is weird when you think that dehydration is when more water leaves the body than enters the body. The thing is, though, whereas water can only enter the body through one inlet in your face, it can leave the body in many, many, many different ways. So, staying hydrated is a little more complicated… Read more

Why are prescription sunglasses so expensive?

If it wasn’t bad enough that you have poor eyesight, you also have to pay for the privilege of wearing the clunky medical apparatus we call eyeglasses. But to rub it in even more, if you want to avoid headaches, eyestrain, UV damage, and generally bumping into things while protecting your eyes from the sun, you also have to dish out a fortune for prescription sunglasses. There’s no way around it. You can try wearing your favourite pair of 80s Raybans, balancing a… Read more

How can you tell if you have cataracts?

The eyes are two globular organs made up of mostly water, salt, and proteins that provide organisms, like us, with vision. And, at least on the surface, that’s all there is to it. But if you stop for a moment and take a deeper look into your own eyes (if you can), you’ll see they also contain two million moving parts in a space that’s just two centimetres wide, making them the second most complex organ after the brain, and thus one… Read more

Practical Tips For Naturally Brighter & Whiter Eyes


They’re the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them, and the last thing you remember when you walk away. It doesn’t matter if the person was six foot or four, was bald or had a thick head of hair, was in their early twenties or late eighties; if their eyes were clear and shining, they were a complete vision of ageless beauty. When was the last time, though, other than when watching a movie, you saw someone and just… Read more

Your initial consultation: When more really means more

Laser Eye Surgery deals with one of the most complex organs in the body and one of our most valued senses. Rightly so, you may worry about what is the best option for surgery and have you chosen the right clinic to perform your treatment. There are so many fancy named treatments that don’t mean anything, technologies that don’t do anything, and added extras that make little to no difference to your outcome (except for the cost). You’re probably confused about what… Read more

The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery

Just a few years ago, the outlook for Laser Eye Surgery seemed somewhat bleak. Consumer watchdog Which? had published a report that highlighted deep and widespread problems among clinics, from insufficient advice and hot-air promises to deceiving prices and unrealistic claims. But the report was fair and comprehensive. And whereas it revealed that this may be the case for some Laser Eye Surgery clinics, it also showed it wasn’t a reflection of the many other private and independent clinics that do fair… Read more
