How to look good in your glasses?

You’ve tried to embrace them as the fashion accessory — you really have. But unlike Jennifer Aniston or Anne Hathaway, you weren’t blessed with perfectly symmetrical features. Your face doesn’t fit nicely into one of the common categories — “Square, diamond, heart, or base down triangle? More like oblong-triangle with a dash of square”— and the only style that does looks good on you went out of fashion twenty years ago. But they’re easier and safer than contacts so you try to make them work.… 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

10 things every glasses wearer will know

Glasses are cool. But the oil and pimples around the rims are not. Nor is the dumb feeling of waking up with no clue where you left them, only to find them in a really obvious spot. And don’t get me started on… Glasses wearers put up with A LOT that frameless folks just don’t understand — do your pet hates make the list?

Wake up sharp — not blurry

The day starts with a hunt around the house. You could have sworn you left them on the bedside table. Are they in the bathroom? Nope. Kitchen? Nope. 20 minutes later you return to where you started scratching your head and spot them right there, where they’ve been all long, on the bedside table. This kind of sums up how the rest of the day goes. After you finally found them, you pop them down and jump in the shower, rush through shaving,… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery vs contact lenses: Read the facts

Trying to figure out if you should have Laser Eye Surgery or not is generally not a barrel of laughs. Granted, you don’t go into it expecting to enjoy yourself. But let’s face it, it could be a whole lot easier and less stressful than it’s made to be. Heck, it could even be fun! Okay, maybe that’s pushing it a bit too far… But the point is, if it wasn’t for all the misinformation, bias marketing spiel, and untrustworthy tabloid articles, deciding… Read more

How cool are reading glasses?

Going by the mass of megastars who frequently don corrective eyewear, including Rihanna, Megan Fox, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Justin Beiber, it’s no wonder that people the world over believe glasses to be cool.  I mean, if anyone knows about ‘cool’ it’s Vivienne Westwood, and she is regularly seen sporting a pair of high-end specs. She even suggests they are more than just a fashion symbol and rather a thinking tool, saying “I can’t think without my glasses”. But for the number… Read more

Understanding your prescription

You’ve just had an eye exam, and your optometrist or ophthalmologist has given you a new glasses prescription, full of all the measurements you need to attain clear and comfortable vision. They may have told you you’re short or long-sighted, or that you have astigmatism, but when you look at your prescription, it doesn’t simply say “long-sighted”. Rather, there are an array of abbreviations with decimal numbers, pluses and minuses, and strange symbols underneath. Little did you know, you need to be… Read more

Risk of vision loss wearing contact lens as a result of an infection is higher than from LASIK

For many, contact lenses offer a welcome relief from the inconveniences of glasses—at least at first. The main selling point of contacts, the fact that they actually sit on the eye, brings a host of benefits including higher visual clarity, greater practicality, and a certain level of inconspicuousness, but it also comes at a cost. Unbeknownst to contact wearers as they revel in not being limited by a frame and not being worried about misplacement (unless they drop one). It’s only when… Read more

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
