Laser Eye Surgery for older patients

The last thing you want as you get older is to have surgery. The uncomfortable feeling of being in hospital, the lengthy recovery times, the hassle and expense — not to mention the worry the procedure won’t work as desired. But all that is nothing compared to if the surgery is directly related to the fact you’re getting older.

Why should the young have all the fun?

Every year we celebrate our chronological age, i.e how many years we’ve lived since our mothers performed the gracious act of bringing us into the world. But once you get beyond thirty or forty you begin to realise this isn’t a true representation of how old you are. Somehow the numbers keep going up but you don’t feel like you’re ageing with them. In some senses, you feel younger than ever. Your mind is sharp, your body is in good shape, and… Read more

Reading glasses are never cool

In the early 90’s, Doc Martins and flannel shirts hit the mainstream fashion scene. Soon after, babydoll dresses appeared in the wardrobes of most young girls. Fast forward twenty years later, and, as the notion goes, they all came back into style. There’s a lot of debate about how long this cycle of nostalgia runs, but twenty years is a good rule of thumb.

“I don’t need glasses! The text is just really small…” — My mum, every time she can’t read something My mum has presbyopia and can’t read or see anything in the vicinity of her face without her tacky supermarket ready readers. But don’t tell her that; she’s convinced the problem is not with her but the world — as if books and bank statements are produced in smaller and smaller print ever year. It’s understandable — I mean who wants to visit the… Read more

However, all is not lost; many experts believe an effective solution to slowing down and even reversing ageing is on the horizon. The only thing we have to do is wait.… Read more

Fed up of the constant on/off of reading glasses?

Only needing visual aid for some distances and not others presents a unique problem for wearers of reading glasses: where to put the damn things when you’re not wearing them. You don’t want to always wear a shirt with a breast pocket and you’d rather not hang them from a chain around your neck like an old fashioned librarian; the only solution you’ve found is to have hundreds of pairs strewn all over the place — at home, at work, in the car, under the… Read more

What does a pair of £5 reading glasses say about you?

Many great things have been said about the eyes. The great Roman philosopher Cicero described the face as a picture of the mind and suggested, “the eyes are its interpreter.” In the Bible, Matthew said they are “the lamps of the body”, and in an instant can reveal your health according to how bright they shine. And maybe most famously and profoundly Shakespeare proclaimed they are “the windows to your soul”. Whatever they are, one thing’s for certain: such an enigmatic and expressive part… Read more
