Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If…? And Other Suitability Questions

Head down the high street, walk into a Laser Eye Surgery provider, and ask a question, say ‘Can I have the treatment if I’m over 60? And you’ll get one answer. But hop in your car and go to a private or independent clinic and ask them the same question, and you get a totally different one. What’s going on here? Surely if you’re ineligible at one clinic you’re ineligible at them all, and vice versa, right? Well, this is often the case… Read more

We are all biologically engineered to protect our eyes

With our bodies having various mechanisms and systems built in to protect itself, it’s no surprise we’re hardwired to stop any harm coming to our eyes. This is, of course, a great evolutionary adaptation. We are incredibly conscious about anything coming near them, including wasps, sand, and child-sized fingers. It can become somewhat problematic, though, when you’re faced with the situation in which your eyes aren’t functioning correctly and the body can’t do anything to improve them. All your instincts that urge… Read more

The most common fears of Laser Eye Surgery

As humans, there are certain basic fears we’re born with. Things like being separated or rejected from a group and suffering a loss of autonomy that leaves us unable to take care of ourselves. As a function of these basic fears, we’re biologically wired to prevent anything happening to us that may in any way lead to one or more of them playing out. It’s why we don’t like heights, climbing into small spaces, going underwater, or being alone for too long. It’s also… Read more

If this sounds familiar, then you may not only have an inconvenient and uncomfortable situation on your hands but something more serious to your vision and long-term eye health.

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. Like you don’t feel awkward enough with your gown and bare buttocks, you have the added embarrassment of being seen as a geriatric… Read more

What happens if you blink during Laser Eye Surgery?

You do it anything from 5 to 15 times a minute, every minute, every waking hour of the day. That’s 30,000 times, 99.9 percent of which happen without you being aware of it. It’s amazing really: we get on with our day while our bodies do all the blinking for us. Sliding those wafer thin folds of skin up and down whenever we need a little moisture or antibacterial protection from irritants or require a barrier against oncoming objects or some other assistance… Read more

Can you fly after Laser Eye Surgery?

If Laser Eye Surgery was known for one thing, it would probably be convenience. Or quality. Or efficiency. Okay, so it’s hard to say just one thing, Laser Eye Surgery being known for everything from safety to comfort. But I say convenience for good reason. Most of the time someone chooses to have Laser Eye Surgery, it’s because they’re tired of the endless inconveniences of glasses and contact lenses, especially at times like going abroad or on holiday… Remembering to pack enough pairs of contacts for… Read more

Obscure questions about laser eye surgery

Remember when your teacher used to say, ‘There’s no such thing as a stupid question’, and you’d go ahead and ask something and she’d give you a strange look as if to say what are you?!
