Laser Eye Surgery: Home or Abroad?

What could be better: going abroad and getting some sun, while and at the same time, saving money on a treatment you’ve been wanting to have for ages? With the increase in low-cost treatments and flights abroad, more and more people each year are seeking treatments outside the UK. In particular, Laser Eye Surgery and refractive lens surgeries make up a decent percentage of this “medical tourism”. As a treatment that can improve your vision permanently and be performed in just a… Read more

A day in the life of an ophthalmic surgeon

The human eye is one of the most complex optical systems known to man. With their over two million working parts, each eye collects light, regulates it, focuses it, and finally converts it into the image you see of the world. To tinker with this system is not a job for the faint-hearted. And so, despite the average eye being less than two inches across, there is a pretty large group of specialist roles within medicine whose primary job is to study… Read more

Do I qualify for Lasik?

That time has come around yet again. You need to get a shiny new pair of glasses. The trends change, you see a pair you just have to have, or, if you’re anything like the typical glasses wearer, you’ve scratched, snapped, or lost your current ones so you need a new pair ASAP. Naturally, as you go through all the hassle and add up the extra costs, it can get you thinking about what other options are available to you. Of course,… Read more

Using LASEK / PRK Eye Surgery to Treat Your Eye Condition

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.

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
