Why laser is a better solution if you have an astigmatism

Just like no nose is totally straight and no lips perfectly round and plump (at least naturally), no eye is one hundred percent spherical. The reality is, then, that most people have some degree of astigmatism — an abnormal curvature of the eye that causes light to focus unevenly on the retina. If you’re reading this, chances are your two little globular organs are a little more irregularly shaped than the next person. Depending on the severity of your astigmatism, they may even resemble… Read more

Staying hydrated — And why it’s important for your eyes

You know when you’re dehydrated. No matter what you do and how many litres of water you drink, you just can’t seem to take enough fluid in.

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

What comes to mind when you think of summer?

Glasses, Contacts, Laser Eye Surgery: Which One Suits My Lifestyle Best?

You may think your glasses or contacts suit your lifestyle, but it’s more likely you’ve adapted your lifestyle to fit around them. When you decide to use corrective eyewear, you sign an invisible contract that puts certain limitations on what you can and can’t do. If you’ve lived most of your life under the constraints of one of these contracts, you may not even notice it anymore. Like working a 9-5 job, until you take a sabbatical, have a midlife crisis, or… Read more
