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

Rolling back the years: How to treat presbyopia

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. As an editor is often the last to lay eyes on a piece before it goes public, they need to be relied upon to make the… Read more

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

What does a pair of £5 reading glasses say about you?

Many great things have been said about the eyes. The great Roman philosopher Cicero described the face as a picture of the mind and suggested, “the eyes are its interpreter.” In the Bible, Matthew said they are “the lamps of the body”, and in an instant can reveal your health according to how bright they shine. And maybe most famously and profoundly Shakespeare proclaimed they are “the windows to your soul”. Whatever they are, one thing’s for certain: such an enigmatic and expressive part… Read more

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision surgery recovery time

If you know a little bit about PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, you may have noticed it treats the symptoms of presbyopia in a similar way to the traditional approach of monovision. This is indeed true. Both treatments work by increasing the range of your vision by independently altering the focus of each eye — one to work better up close, and the other to work better at a distance. But the similarities end there. Think of monovision like as the baby of presbyopia… Read more

When does presbyopia start?

Literally meaning “old eye”, presbyopia is the medical term we use for the natural effects of ageing on the eye. The first thing you’re likely to notice is a loss of ability to read fine print and focus on objects up close. It may be you’re holding the newspaper further and further away or squinting to read material you could once see clearly. Add to that stress, eyestrain, and headaches, and you’ve got a typical case of presbyopia. But being so closely related to ageing,… Read more

Fed up of cheap reading glasses

They were never meant to be part of your life. It was just another day on a routine shopping trip, after a morning of straining to read this month’s bank statement and the small print on product labels, when you finally decided enough is enough and paused as you passed the revolving rack of shame. You casually rotated the stand, trying to give off an air of passive interest, and then, when nobody was looking your way, slyly whisked a pair into the… Read more
