Guide to Dry Eyes and Laser Eye Surgery

Up there with the most complex parts of the human body, and for that matter the known universe, is the eye. The eyes are the body’s natural cameras that capture light, convert it to waves of electrochemical signals, and magically conjure up the images we see.

London Vision Clinic is helping to reduce preventable and unnecessary blindness in Nepal

The World Health Organisation estimates that 39 million people around the world suffer from blindness.

Guide to Contact Lens vs Glasses vs Laser Eye Surgery

You would think it’s pretty easy to work out which is better: contact lenses, glasses, or Laser Eye Surgery. But depending on who you ask, what they’ve experienced and read, what stage of life they are in, and who they work for, you may get a differing set of facts and opinions.

Can Laser Eye Surgery Benefit Ageing Eyes?

Despite celebs and billionaires having access to the best anti-ageing tricks and treatments available, it still happens to everyone. Yep, even “beautiful people” like Beyonce and Dicaprio and super CEOs like Elon Musk can’t (yet) fight off the years and stop themselves getting older. Such a thought may help to give you a little consolation, at least briefly. The fact is, getting older isn’t something many of us like to face. In fact, many of us (ahem, not guilty) spend much of… Read more

What causes dry eyes after laser vision correction? [VIDEO]

Nerves play an important role in the Laser Eye Surgery recovery process. I’m not talking about the jitters, patients are usually very calm by this time — I’m on about a different set of nerves: those on the surface of your eye. The nerves on the surface of the eye are momentarily interrupted because of the pain-free laser process.
