The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery

Just a few years ago, the outlook for Laser Eye Surgery seemed somewhat bleak. Consumer watchdog Which? had published a report that highlighted deep and widespread problems among clinics, from insufficient advice and hot-air promises to deceiving prices and unrealistic claims. But the report was fair and comprehensive. And whereas it revealed that this may be the case for some Laser Eye Surgery clinics, it also showed it wasn’t a reflection of the many other private and independent clinics that do fair… 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 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

Will LASIK Eye Surgery Be Replaced With SMILE?

LASIK has been around for 25 years and has allowed millions of people around the globe to experience freedom from glasses and contacts. The technology in the field of vision correction is ever evolving and improving and we are happy to report that in 2018 greater than 95% of patients achieve 20/20 vision after surgery. One of the newest innovations in corrective eye surgery is ReLEx SMILE. Like LASIK, SMILE uses femtosecond laser technology which alters the shape of the cornea to… 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

What is the Care Quality Commission, and why is it important?

If you’re going to work with a business that offers health and social care services, you need to know about the Care Quality Commission (CQC). You could say it’s like to healthcare what TripAdvisor is to hotels, or the food hygiene rating is to early-morning kebabs. Without it, there would be no agreed standard of care that dentists, nursing homes, ambulances, clinics, and hospitals have to meet. Terrible, I know; the dentist is already scary enough, never mind if the CQC didn’t exist.… Read more

What’s it like working in and around Harley Street

For centuries, the closest most people got to Harley Street was knowing the name of an aristocrat, celebrity, or some other well-to-do person who’d allegedly received treatment there. Since the 19th century, the street has been known for providing world-class medical services to the mega-rich and ultra-elite classes. Florence Nightingale and Dr Edward Bach practised there, treating the likes of King George VI for his stammer and Stephen Hawking for motor neuron disease. Today, however, your just as likely to encounter a builder… Read more

Laser eye surgery is more within your grasp than you think

If you’ve been a long time glasses wearer, nothing beats the convenience of contact lenses — excluding the part where you’ve got to go to the bathroom and fiddle to put them in. Like taking an Uber or staying in an Airbnb, contact lenses offer the ultimate in rentable eyesight. Buy a few pairs, pop them in for the day, then throw them away when you’re done. But like Uber and Airbnb, the drawbacks for this level of convenience are many. Risking your… Read more

The cost of lasik surgery

There’s no shortage of companies telling you why you should dish out more for Laser Eye Surgery… “Put your sight in the hands of a clinic you can trust.” “Your eyes deserve only the best care.” But at the same time, there’s also a smothering of companies letting you know you can pay less… “We’ve slashed treatment prices in our Spring/Summer sale!” “Laser Eye Surgery is now more affordable than ever!” Whatever they’re touting, most of us have more wits about us… Read more
