Blurry, hazy & foggy. Not a hangover, but your vision in the morning

Dragging your body as if someone snuck in during the night and pumped it full of lead, you stumble to the bathroom and turn on the light. You stop, groaning and wincing from its harsh glow, and make your way to the seat — being careful to avoid any reflective surfaces (not that you could see anyway). Just like the famous sculpture ‘The Thinker’, you prepare to sit and contemplate some of life’s biggest questions. So, who am I? And where am I?… Read more

How to make your glasses cool — throw them in the bin

When a fresh piece of clothing or accessory is suddenly labelled ‘cool’ by the fashion police, it’s usually swiftly picked up by alternative, fringe groups before just as quickly being thrown out in disgust when it hits the mainstream. But what about when it happens the other way around — when a product that’s been around for decades, even centuries, is suddenly crowned cool and adopted by niche fashion circles? The universe doesn’t implode. But you do get an unusual situation in… Read more

How to make your glasses cool — throw them in the bin

Reading glasses are never cool

In the early 90’s, Doc Martins and flannel shirts hit the mainstream fashion scene. Soon after, babydoll dresses appeared in the wardrobes of most young girls. Fast forward twenty years later, and, as the notion goes, they all came back into style. There’s a lot of debate about how long this cycle of nostalgia runs, but twenty years is a good rule of thumb. Some people say it’s more like forty years. Others say everything is simultaneously in and out of style all the time.… Read more

Where do you keep your reading glasses?

At around a million times faster than NASA’s 1960’s computer, a smartphone is an incredibly sophisticated piece of tech. With it, you can do things like pay for groceries, translate text, and stay in touch with your loved ones. Without it, well, we would barely achieve anything. And as such an indispensable part of our life that brings us endless pleasure (thank you Candy Crush), we have no trouble carting it around with us everywhere we go. Reading glasses, on the other hand, do… Read more

Reading glasses are a crap solution

“I don’t need glasses! The text is just really small…” — My mum, every time she can’t read something My mum has presbyopia and can’t read or see anything in the vicinity of her face without her tacky supermarket ready readers. But don’t tell her that; she’s convinced the problem is not with her but the world — as if books and bank statements are produced in smaller and smaller print ever year. It’s understandable — I mean who wants to visit the… Read more

Rolling back the years: How to treat presbyopia

We accept ageing as a fact — an unavoidable process that governs all existence and affects us whether we like it or not. And in many ways, it is. Ageing is one part of the biological puzzle that continues to evade even the brightest minds and the most cutting edge technology. However, all is not lost; many experts believe an effective solution to slowing down and even reversing ageing is on the horizon. The only thing we have to do is wait.… Read more

Fed up of the constant on/off of reading glasses?

Only needing visual aid for some distances and not others presents a unique problem for wearers of reading glasses: where to put the damn things when you’re not wearing them. You don’t want to always wear a shirt with a breast pocket and you’d rather not hang them from a chain around your neck like an old fashioned librarian; the only solution you’ve found is to have hundreds of pairs strewn all over the place — at home, at work, in the car, under the… Read more

George Chesterton of GQ Magazine has PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision

To be an editor for one of the world’s leading publications, you need to be many things. You need to be a critic for detail and an expert in seeing the bigger picture. You need to be as impartial as a judge and as opinionated as a Kardashian. But above all, you need to be tough.

The top tip to looking younger: don’t wear reading glasses

There’s no shortage of anti ageing and beauty tips that promise to turn back the years. But no matter what they may be, there’s always a catch. It could be a powerful herb from the Amazonian rainforest that can give you the skin of a teenager, but only if you can find and bathe in it for 8 hours every day. It may be a risky surgical procedure that tightens up loose skin, but at the same time leaves you with a huge scar and… Read more

Throw your reading glasses away

A lot of unexpected but unavoidable things happen as we get older. Hair stops growing where it should and starts in obscure places, hard parts of the body get soft and soft parts get hard, our memory fails us, we lose a few inches in height, and our eyesight deteriorates. Most of these things don’t really affect day-to-day life. You can deal with occasionally being senile — in fact, it can come in handy from time to time. The hair sprouting out of ears and… Read more
