How diabetes affects your eyes

Many things affect your eyes that you wouldn’t necessarily expect would. The list is practically endless. The fact is, your eyes don’t exist on their own. They are part of a complex system consisting of various nerves, neurons, and organs including the brain. Thankfully, you don’t need to know how it all works in order to see.  One thing we do need to do for our eyes is manage systemic and external factors and conditions — many of which may seem unrelated or… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery: Home or Abroad?

What could be better: going abroad and getting some sun, while and at the same time, saving money on a treatment you’ve been wanting to have for ages? With the increase in low-cost treatments and flights abroad, more and more people each year are seeking treatments outside the UK. In particular, Laser Eye Surgery and refractive lens surgeries make up a decent percentage of this “medical tourism”. As a treatment that can improve your vision permanently and be performed in just a… Read more

What is The Likelihood of Needing an Enhancement? [video]

Laser Eye Surgery is similar to glasses and contacts in that, if it’s not up to standard, you can always have it done again or go elsewhere. The thing is, though, unlike glasses and contacts, you expect Laser Eye Surgery to be a one-time jobby. And it is — the vast majority of people who have it never need to return to the clinic again other than for their scheduled aftercare appointments. There are, however, a small number of cases when their… Read more

Looking after your eyes camping during festival season

You’re planning to go hiking, camping, or to a festival, but between making sure you have everything packed and finalising arrangements, you’re lucky if you have time to give your eyes a thought. Yet other than your legs, sense of hearing, and the folding chairs, clear vision is one of the most important things you need for your trip. And so, especially if you wear contacts, it bears taking a few minutes to stop and consider the risks to your eyes and… Read more

Arghh!! Hayfever and contact lens woes

The sun is high in the sky and the flowers are in bloom. It’s the first few days of spring — one of the best times of the year. So, you jump out of bed, and without thinking, draw the curtains, open the windows wide, and take one big, long, deep breath in. Instead of a nice pleasant aaahhhh at the lovely fresh spring air, what comes out is more like an arghhhh!! as you run sneezing and tearing to the bathroom to dig out your… Read more

At what prescription do you become legally blind?

You would think knowing if you were blind or not would be a simple thing. You can’t see nothin’. The world beyond your nose is just one big blur, and trying to do anything without your contacts or glasses always ends in harm or disaster. But nothing is ever that simple, and not least our vision. Your eyes are one of the most complex systems in the known universe, and there are as many types and degrees of vision as there are shades… Read more

8 Things you should definitely not do whilst wearing specs

When you first become a glasses wearer, you’re blissfully unaware that as well as signing up to rent your vision, you’re also signing away the right to do many things that were once simple and pleasurable. Your optometrist doesn’t tell you this, and it’s not like it’s all laid out somewhere in the small print. They’re simply something you have to discover and suffer through yourself. Commiserations if you recognise any of these small but incredibly frustrating complications of glasses on our… Read more

Why laser is a better solution if you have an astigmatism

Just like no nose is completely straight and no lips are perfectly round and plump (at least naturally), no eye is one hundred percent spherical. That means the reality is most people have some degree of astigmatism: an abnormal curvature of the eye that causes light to focus unevenly on the retina. Even the eyes of people who have perfect vision are a little skewiff. However, for most people, a little bit of imperfection in their globular organs doesn’t cause them any… 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. This is weird when you think that dehydration is when more water leaves the body than enters the body. The thing is, though, whereas water can only enter the body through one inlet in your face, it can leave the body in many, many, many different ways. So, staying hydrated is a little more complicated… Read more

Practical Tips For Naturally Brighter & Whiter Eyes


They’re the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them, and the last thing you remember when you walk away. It doesn’t matter if the person was six foot or four, was bald or had a thick head of hair, was in their early twenties or late eighties; if their eyes were clear and shining, they were a complete vision of ageless beauty. When was the last time, though, other than when watching a movie, you saw someone and just… Read more
