Sometimes nothing can prevent a little nerves.  And the majority of the time you wouldn’t want to. A little bit of adrenaline and anxiety keep us on our toes, help us through sticky situations, and have even been shown to help us perform at our best—think of athletes beating their PB’s on competition day. But there are times when nerves are far from helpful, particularly when they appear in droves. Think of a first date, characterised by sweaty palms, peculiar behaviour, and… Read more

Afraid of Laser Eye Surgery

  The first feeling I had when I heard the term Laser Eye Surgery was fear. Before obtaining all the facts, the words ‘laser’ and ‘eyes’ in the same sentence were enough to invoke some vivid and unpleasant imagery.

Can I talk to someone who has been treated?

Not too long ago, advertisements and salespeople were the main influences in our decisions to buy certain products or use certain services. If you were lucky, you may of had a friend or family member who could offer you a recommendation, but more often that not you were buying in blind faith. Today, many people won’t make a purchase until they’ve found out exactly what others have to say about it. The tables have turned, with the power no longer being in… Read more

Side effect: Seeing halos around images

Apart from when admiring one of the many depictions of angels, you can reasonably expect not to see a glowing halo of light in your field of vision.

Glasses and contact lenses are all used as ways to… Read more
