Dr Pixie McKenna Describes Her Experience As A Doctor Visiting London Vision Clinic

It’s no secret that despite almost two decades of doctoring, I am still a terrible patient. But, in December 2013, having toyed with the idea for ages, I decided to take the leap and see if I was suitable for laser eye surgery. While glasses can, of course, be a fashion accessory for some, I would be embarrassed to tell you how many stylish pairs I have sacrificed. Many of my “must haves” have been either lost or squashed, and numerous pairs… Read more

Eye Health: European Coalition for Vision Request End To Neglect

Earlier this year, the European Coalition for Vision (ECV) released a press statement to call on European decision makers to include eye health and vision in their political agenda. The call follows an earlier event in which members of the ECV claimed that eye health has been neglected in the political arena for too long, and that there is far too much avoidable and preventable vision damage. The ECV is an allegiance of members, including professional bodies and patient groups amongst others,… Read more

Here London Vision Clinic, we are looking forward to the summer (and distinctly unimpressed by the recent rain!)

Hay fever – a form of allergic rhinitis –  is an allergic reaction that occurs when pollen from grasses and plants is inhaled into the nose or gets into the eyes. Depending on where you live and… Read more

The Technology Used At London Vision Clinic

Over the last several months we have conducted a survey of people calling London Vision Clinic. It turns out that the technology used is one of the six most important factors that people look for when considering a clinic. That makes complete sense to us! Laser eye surgery is a continually evolving field, and improvements in technology and equipment and developments in research can mean even better and safer outcomes.

Roy Moëd, Founder Of LifeBook UK, Tells His Laser Eye Surgery Story

Written By Roy Moëd Having good vision is so essential for our jobs and our personal lives – but something we often take for granted. After I studied to become a private pilot, having good eyesight became an undisputed priority, but I continued to ‘make do’ with spectacles when flying and didn’t give it much further thought. It was only when I was attending a charity auction for a children’s charity that I found myself bidding for something that could make my… Read more

Not only the process of Laser Eye Surgery itself, but also the surgery results, are often described as “magical” by our patients. They cannot believe how they can get up in the morning and see perfectly without having to think about their glasses or contact lenses. It may sound simple, but the fact that Laser Eye Surgery can actually improve a person’s… Read more

Jam-Jar Glasses For A Lifetime?

People with high prescriptions and complicated vision problems – especially those who have worn their glasses for a very long time – may well remember “jam-jar” or “coke-bottle” glasses as an object of embarrassment from their schooldays. Practical, yes – but fashionable? The way that high prescription thick lenses, may change your appearance is one issue to consider – but there are also practical considerations that can make glasses more of a hindrance than a help in some situations. As many of… Read more

Nurse Angela’s Surgery Story: One Year Later…

Only a few weeks ago, we passed the year anniversary of London Vision Clinic nurse Angela’s own Initial Screening. Angela was excited, but, having been told in the past (by a High Street laser eye surgery) that her prescription was too high, her astigmatism too great and her corneas too thin  for her to ever be considered for laser surgery, she hadn’t allowed herself to get her hopes too high. Even after being told – following an extensive range of eye tests… Read more
