What Can Damage Your Eyes?

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

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

Nothing ages you more than reading glasses

If you’ve ever had any anti-ageing treatments or tried something that claims to make you look younger, then you’re probably a little sceptical about anything new that hits the market and claims to be the answer to eternal youth. Pretty much everything in this category comes at some cost. Whether it be it only lasts a few weeks or months, it has several risks or unfavourable side-effects, it costs the Earth to keep using, or it demands severe restraint or hours of… Read more

5 Important Habits for Keeping Your Eyes Healthy

People have always suffered from vision problems due to overlooking the necessity of eyecare. But in a world where many of our professional and personal lives revolve around screens, this is especially true today. It’s essential that our eyes need some rest from time to time. After working for long hours in front of a computer, they’d ideally get some respite along with us, but instead they’re often put to work again on a game console, TV, or book. Although some of these… Read more

Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If…? And Other Suitability Questions

Head down the high street, walk into a Laser Eye Surgery provider, and ask a question, say ‘Can I have the treatment if I’m over 60? And you’ll get one answer. But hop in your car and go to a private or independent clinic and ask them the same question, and you get a totally different one. What’s going on here? Surely if you’re ineligible at one clinic you’re ineligible at them all, and vice versa, right? Well, this is often the case… 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

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

How can you tell if you have cataracts?

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
