The best and worst times to have Laser Eye Surgery

Like upgrading your house, there comes a time when you decide to upgrade your eyesight. But wait a minute, you still have a mortgage to pay off, the bathroom needs remodeling, and the dog has just soiled the rug; some times are just more suited than others to make the change. Inanimate objects are difficult enough to manage, but complex living organisms like the body make things really challenging.

Nervous of Laser Eye Surgery?

It’s normal to feel a little nervous in the time-period preceding your eyes being operated on. You could even say it’s a little weird to be perfectly okay with it. The increasing heart rate, dilating pupils, sweaty palms, and butterflies in the stomach are some of our body’s most valuable signals. Without them, we would fail miserably at measuring the level of danger, risk, or potential success of a situation. When you’re anxiously waiting for an exam or confronted by someone you… Read more

Avoid Being Seduced By Cheap Laser Eye Surgery Deals

Everybody loves a bargain. But when it comes to any form of elective surgery, price should never be the first thing you look out for. We have a funny relationship with money. Just yesterday when I was out doing the shopping, a new, cheaper brand of a type of product I buy every week caught my eye. As it was marginally less than the one I usually go for (and love), naturally, I bought five. Like most things, it turns out it… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery ruin your eyesight?

With any surgical procedure there comes an element of risk, and with Laser Eye Surgery it’s no different. However, with much thanks to the internet and no doubt to the presence of the word ‘laser’ in its name, it’s all too easy to come across wild myths and tales about the Laser Eye Surgery procedure and its effects. Sensationalist stories; freak accidents; overblown opinions—these are all things which have played their part in what has become a blurry haze around the truth… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery: Why Pregnant And Breastfeeding Mums Should Wait

I can only assume that pregnancy is a time when you really don’t want to be bumping into things. And if you combine that with all the other inconveniences that come with suffering from poor vision,  it quickly begins to sound like a recipe for disaster. However, there are certain times and circumstances that make someone ineligible for Laser Eye Surgery—such as while in your teens, or taking certain medication—and being pregnant or breastfeeding is unfortunately on that list. The procedure presents… Read more

“Laser”, “eye” and “surgery” are three words that may, understandably, arouse anxiety. Unlike in the USA, where the procedure is often referred to simply as “LASIK”, one of the first obstacles for someone considering the treatment in this country may well be just getting over their pre-conceptions (which, we have found, are most often mis-conceptions) about what risks Laser Eye Surgery involves. It is completely normal to be anxious about having Laser Eye Surgery: to be honest, if you weren’t, we’d be… Read more

Eyes wide open: “Do I really have to be awake during Laser Eye Surgery?”

A common concern about Laser Eye Surgery is the idea that, by being awake during the procedure, you are somehow at an increased risk of complications or experiencing pain. In fact, surveys have shown that this is one of the most common reasons people decide against treatment, before even having an initial consultation. Whilst we can appreciate that being awake during a surgical procedure doesn’t sound like much fun, it’s important to remember that Laser Eye Surgery in expert hands is painless and,… Read more
