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

Reading glasses are never cool. Ever.

What do your glasses say about you? It’s a simple question with, at least on the surface, a simple answer. They either say “Hey, I’m cool.” or, provide people with an indication of your age, or just highlight the fact you simply cannot see very well. And oftentimes all three. But look beyond the four-eyed facade, behind the thick rims that sit between your eyes and the world, and you can see they’re actually communicating a lot more than you’d first think.… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery Cure Cataracts?

It’s thought that the first cataract surgery was performed in ancient Egypt, some 2000 years ago. Thankfully, though, a lot has changed since then. In 2018, cataract surgery is not an experimental procedure performed by hand using long, primitive instruments. In fact, it is one of the most common and successful vision correction treatments around, with over 20 million surgeries being done each year. Like in a camera, the lens of the eye focuses light rays and helps us create a clear and sharp image… Read more

Is Youthful Vision Without Reading Glasses Possible?

When you hear about a new age-defying treatment, it can sometimes come with a slew of catches like waring off after a few weeks or risks like infections and nausea or some obscure side effects. This is the price we pay for trying to work against the body’s natural process of ageing, instead of accepting it and working with it. We’ve long followed this approach, relying on creams, tucks, injections, and other treatments to patch up problems so we can look good… Read more

Does Laser Blended Vision Work For Everyone?

We all have those moments of seniority when you realise, for one reason or other, that you’re not as young as you used to be. For some, though, it happens a lot more often than it needs to. Maybe it’s that you struggle to stay awake later than 10 pm on a Saturday night or your medicine cabinet is starting to look more and more like a pharmacy. And every day you spend less time with the grandkids before collapsing. There are just some… Read more

Looking after your eyes on the London tube

Take a ride on the London underground and you’re destined to see sights you won’t have seen anywhere else. Strange characters dressed up as mythical creatures and dominatrix on their way to work. Longtime commuters sprawled out with shoes off and feet up. Even couples celebrating the best day of their lives by getting married on their favourite line. The problem is, as an enclosed, poorly ventilated environment that’s also full of metal, the tube is one of the worst places for… Read more

Staring at Facebook for 4 hours a day might be bad for you

Facebook has taken a bit of a bashing recently. Several studies have come out showing the damaging effects it can have on everything from relationships and love life to stress and self-esteem. Even the people who helped build the thing are coming out and declaring it’s “ripping society apart” thanks to its purposely designed “feedback loops”. For a site that calls itself a ‘social network’ and that brought us ‘Friend’s Day’, the friendly Poke, and the ability to find long-lost classmates from our… Read more

5 Natural beauty tips for vibrant and healthy eyes

In 2017, a ton of new health and beauty trends came and went. Some of which included smudged lipstick to achieve the ‘just-kissed’ look, jade rollers to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck, and bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy. Sometimes the new fads stick, but most the time they don’t. The fact is, the best of them have already been around for years, even millennia. Smoky and cat eyes were pretty much invented by Cleopatra. The daily lemon water… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery for older patients

The last thing you want as you get older is to have surgery. The uncomfortable feeling of being in hospital, the lengthy recovery times, the hassle and expense — not to mention the worry the procedure won’t work as desired. But all that is nothing compared to if the surgery is directly related to the fact you’re getting older. Like you don’t feel awkward enough with your gown and bare buttocks, you have the added embarrassment of being seen as a geriatric… Read more
