European Tour

Michael Hoey is looking for a swift return to The European Tour after successful Laser Eye Surgery inspired the Northern Irishman to the second Challenge Tour success of his career at the Tessali-Metaponto Open di Puglia e Basilicata. The 28 year old from Belfast, who defeated Welshman Liam Bond at the frst hole of a sudden-death play-of at the Riva dei Tessali Golf Club in Italy on Sunday, underwent the surgical procedure in January to correct his short sightedness and has been… Read more

Cycling Week

Darren Chouch transformed his cycling with laser eye surgery, and so can you. “I used to wear glasses for cycling” says Darren Couch. “I had worn contact lenses from age 18 but developed an intolerance for them so could not wear them all day. Riding in the rain totally smeared the lenses so I couldn’t see and at night it was worse because of the beads of rain. It made riding much more dangerous.” “Glasses do not have full peripheral vision so… Read more

Square Mile Magazine

Steve McDowell eye-balls a machine that is in essence a sophisticated heat beam which we call a “laser”. It’s a very weird thing to do. Lie still in a bed while a man in a bad-taste bandanna fires a laser into each of your eyes. Hence the butterflies as I prepare to do just this while nervously gorging on the finest chocolate biscuits (Duchy of Lancaster, no less) in the expensively appointed waiting room just off Harley Street. The man in the… Read more

Target Spot

STEVE MCDOWELL takes the plunge and opts for corrective Laser Eye Surgery I WRITE this with apologies to the excellent offices of JH Steward (Bisley) – the opticians in whose very capable hands my shooting eyes have been for some years. But not any more. The short sightedness and the astigmatism that afflicted my vision have gone – eliminated by Laser Eye Surgery. I’ve always had a hate/hate relationship with contact lenses. Ever since giving up cricket a couple of years ago… Read more

As divers, our eyesight is something we rely on every time we take a breath in the underwater world. Good eyesight is something taken for granted if you’re lucky enough to have perfect vision, but for those who have to wear glasses or contact lenses, it presents a problem when you come to dive. For obvious reasons, wearing glasses under a mask is out of the question, so many divers opt for a prescription mask. These have their own drawbacks, as well… Read more

Cataract and Retractive Surgery Today

By Pait Teesalu, MD, PHD. More than 2 years after surgery, my refraction is 0.00 -0.25 X 3° in the right eye and 0.00 -0.25 X 68° in the left; I can still see J1 up close. I decided to undergo corneal refractive surgery about 3 years ago. My refraction was approximately – .00 D in each eye. At that time, I was performing more than 1,500 cataract surgeries per year and was growing tired of having to clean my spectacles after… Read more

How High Is An Elephant’s Eye?

How High Is An Elephant’s Eye? As I write this I am listening to the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein and appreciating the timeless talent of the greatest creative partnership American musical theatre has ever seen. It is exceptionally pleasant to re-visit all those classics of yesteryear: “I’m going to wash that man right of my hair”, “People will say we’re in love”, “I enjoy being a girl”, all those recognisable tunes from Carousel, Oklahoma! The King and I and The Sound… Read more

Daily Express (I Can See Clearly Now)

Published in the Daily Express New techniques mean that thousands who previously could not have Laser Eye Surgery can now be safely treated. JULIE CARPENTER explains why she can throw away her hated glasses at last. There is one reason why many people still shy away from having Laser Eye Surgery to correct short or long-sightedness and that is fear. I was the same. Despite the fact more than 30 million people worldwide have had LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis), the most common… Read more

Police Life

“LASIK is extraordinarily safe in fully trained hands, but even average surgeons can still get it right 90 per cent of the time. Just like in any profession, the few bad apples can give the profession a bad name.” -Professor Dan Reinstein. After Laser Eye Surgery, Tiger Woods, arguably the world’s best golfer, effortlessly won the Pebble Beach PGA tournament in February, 2000, in California. “The hole is bigger, the ball is bigger,” Woods remarked after his win. In little more than… Read more

Less Than Six Degrees Of Separation

Less Than Six Degrees Of Separation I have long believed in the “Six degrees of separation” theory, sometimes referred to as the “Human Web”. It refers to the idea that everyone is at most six steps away from any other person in the world. In other words, the chain of discovering a “friend of a friend” can be made to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. Of course finding those steps can be tricky, but they are apparently always… Read more
