Mr Stuart On His Journey Through His Ophthalmic Training

It was during my first year as a Junior Doctor that I decided I wanted to be an Eye Surgeon. I was fascinated by the technology in the speciality and the fast pace of the research developments. I was accepted onto ophthalmology training in London and through the 7 years of placements I developed a keen interest in corneal and cataract surgery. After completing my general training, I went on to further sub specialise in corneal surgery during a one-year fellowship at… Read more

What prescription can Laser Eye Surgery correct?

When you go in for an eye exam at the opticians, the main thing you come out knowing is whether or not you need to wear glasses. But they also might mention a bit about exactly why you need glasses. With your little prescription card in your hand, they’ll explain how you have shortsightedness, longsightedness, astigmatism, or maybe a mixture of the above. Aside from that, there’s not much else you need to know. But if you’re not too keen on a lifetime of glasses or… Read more

Is it worth getting Laser Eye Surgery?

There’s no shortage of reasons why someone might want to have Laser Eye Surgery.

As seen on TED [Video]

In 1948, Spanish ophthalmologist Jose Ignacio Barraquer Moner was fed up with relying on external aids to see well. He wanted a solution for blurry vision that would fix the eye itself, without the need of wearing glasses. The answer he came up with was something called “keratomileusis”, a surgical technique that alters vision by reshaping the cornea. And the rest is history. Today, we know this procedure as LASIK, a treatment for everything from shortsightedness and longsightedness to astigmatism and presbyopia.… Read more
