Using LASEK / PRK Eye Surgery to Treat Your Eye Condition

Laser Eye Surgery is certainly not a stranger to an abbreviation or two. Whether it’s LASEK, LASIK, or ReLEx SMILe, you can’t go two minutes researching the treatment without coming across a new one and feeling like you’re getting further away from understanding it all. Fortunately, despite being awash with technical jargon, Laser Eye Surgery is far from as complicated as it first seems. The fact is, by understanding just a few key details about the different treatments, you can gain a… Read more

How To Choose A Laser Eye Surgeon

When you go in for a routine surgery, you don’t have to give much thought to who the surgeon is going to be and if they’re qualified for the job. The fact is, there are strict regulations in place that mean you’re not just going to have any Tom, Dick or Harry off the street slicing into your abdomen to fix that hernia. However, whereas that may be the case in standard medical practice, the world of elective procedures is a lot… Read more

Will LASIK Eye Surgery Be Replaced With SMILE?

LASIK has been around for 25 years. In that time, it has allowed millions of people around the globe to experience freedom from glasses and contacts. However, the technology in the field of vision correction is ever evolving and is thus improving all the time. It also varies between clinics, with more than 95 percent of patients in 2018 at London Vision Clinic achieving 20/20 vision after surgery. One of the newest innovations in corrective eye surgery is ReLEx SMILE, or SMILE… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery by surgeons, not companies

It’s often pretty clear how you know if someone sees what they do as much more than just a job. They’re most comfortable talking about what they do, so when you ask them anything that’s even slightly related to it their eyes light up and then you can’t shut them up. They work even when they don’t have to, and, of course, spend most their spare time thinking about it. And if given the choice to do anything else, even retire right… 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

The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery

Just a few years ago, the outlook for Laser Eye Surgery looked somewhat bleak. Consumer watchdog Which? published a report highlighting deep and widespread problems among clinics, from inadequate advice and hot-air promises to deceiving prices and wildly unrealistic claims. But the report was fair and comprehensive. And whereas it did reveal this is the case for some Laser Eye Surgery clinics, it also clearly showed it wasn’t a reflection of the whole landscape, particularly the many private and independent clinics that… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery Cure Cataracts?

It’s thought that the first cataract surgery was performed in ancient Egypt, some 2000 years ago. Thankfully, though, a lot has changed since then. In 2018, cataract surgery is not an experimental procedure performed by hand using long, primitive instruments. In fact, it is one of the most common and successful vision correction treatments around, with over 20 million surgeries being done each year. Like in a camera, the lens of the eye focuses light rays and helps us create a clear and sharp image… Read more

Always Get A Second Opinion

For a long time, the line between what was and what wasn’t possible was solid and definitive like a concrete wall. But in 2018, with technologies advancing at an ever more rapid pace and new innovations replacing old ones all the time, we’re realising it’s actually much more like a fine line in the sand. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in the field of vision correction. For example, walk up any high street in search for a fix for your vision, and… Read more

Does PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision Work For Everyone?

We all have those moments of seniority when you realise, for one reason or other, that you’re not as young as you used to be. For some, though, it happens a lot more often than it needs to. Maybe it’s that you struggle to stay awake later than 10 pm on a Saturday night or your medicine cabinet is starting to look more and more like a pharmacy. And every day you spend less time with the grandkids before collapsing. There are just some… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery save you money?

You don’t want to be the person who goes to India and haggles the homeless lady on the street down from 1000 rupees to 80 for a sari. Or the crazy lady who pushes everyone out of the way to rampage through the bargain basket at Primark and get that last pair of socks. You do, however, care about getting good value for money. And that means, no matter whether it’s eye surgery or a sari, you take due time and consideration to… Read more
