How soon can I be back on my iPhone/iPad

Some think the best thing we could do is take a little bit of time away from our smartphones and tablets. But there’s no doubt they play an indispensable part in modern day life. I’ve always been one to pull a face when sitting in a cafe or taking a bus downtown and noticing that the majority of people have their heads buried in a screen. But after recently loosing my iPhone, I began to realise just how much I depended on… Read more

How quickly do you recover from Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’re looking for the fastest and most effective way to improve your vision, then you’ve come to the right place. Granted, having Laser Eye Surgery may seem not as quick a solution as popping on a pair of glasses or contact lenses. But if you add up the amount of time in your life you have spent (and will spend) searching for your glasses, faffing with contacts, or visiting your opticians, then it’s clear to see which comes out on top.

Post-LASIK patients risk of halos and starbursts around bright lights at night

Nobody wants side effects as a result of a treatment—whether they are intended or not.

If that’s the case, then the best you can do is to be aware of what those side effects are, how commonly they occur, and what exactly they entail. This is more difficult than it sounds as side effects… Read more

Is it time to take another look at Laser Eye Surgery?

There always comes a time when you look back on something and say, “Hang on a minute, why did I think that?” Even when the solution was staring you right in the face—maybe even more so—it’s easy to dismiss it for no solid or justified reasons. Maybe the thing in question conjured up a negative feeling or a fuzzy memory of something you once read in the depths of the internet, or a sense of overwhelm from a lack of knowledge about it,… Read more

Avoid Being Seduced By Cheap Laser Eye Surgery Deals

Everybody loves a bargain. But when it comes to any form of elective surgery, price should never be the first thing you look out for. We have a funny relationship with money. Just yesterday when I was out doing the shopping, a new, cheaper brand of a type of product I buy every week caught my eye. As it was marginally less than the one I usually go for (and love), naturally, I bought five. Like most things, it turns out it… Read more

That being said, there are certain ways in which clinical practices and surgeons can minimise risk so that the procedures they carry out are as safe as can possibly be. Many of these precautions are left down to the individual practice to employ, and therefore, it is essential to understand how to go about recognising a suitable and qualified practice. We have put together the following… Read more

Does Flap Thickness Matter?

Laser Eye Surgery to correct impaired vision has always involved reshaping the cornea, but the thickness of the corneal flap treated in the surgery has reduced significantly over the years, so much so that today, there is even a flapless form of laser surgery. This says a lot for how much flap thickness is related with safety during, and recovery following surgery. Thinner flaps preserve a thicker, more structurally integral cornea, meaning less discomfort, faster recovery times, minimal risk of haze, and… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery ruin your eyesight?

With any surgical procedure there comes an element of risk, and with Laser Eye Surgery it’s no different. However, with much thanks to the internet and no doubt to the presence of the word ‘laser’ in its name, it’s all too easy to come across wild myths and tales about the Laser Eye Surgery procedure and its effects.

Laser Eye Surgery: Why Pregnant And Breastfeeding Mums Should Wait

I can only assume that pregnancy is a time when you really don’t want to be bumping into things. And if you combine that with all the other inconveniences that come with suffering from poor vision,  it quickly begins to sound like a recipe for disaster. However, there are certain times and circumstances that make someone ineligible for Laser Eye Surgery—such as while in your teens, or taking certain medication—and being pregnant or breastfeeding is unfortunately on that list. The procedure presents… Read more
