Is it worth travelling to London for Laser Eye Surgery if you live in Leeds?

Getting from Leeds to London used to be an awkward affair that took an age to plan and even longer to arrive. Today within less than two and a half hours you can be in the nation’s capital, sipping a hot latte down by the Thames or exploring the depths of The British Museum, all for the cost of a nice lunch in Leeds (well, maybe excluding the latte). And travel times are only getting even shorter. With the introduction of HS2, the… Read more

How much should you pay for Laser Eye Surgery?

Finding the right Laser Eye Surgery treatment at the right price can be incredibly easy or excruciatingly difficult. It’s not like say buying a new car, in which you find a few that take your fancy and then compare prices across dealerships, knowing that no matter where you end up purchasing your chosen make and model, it’ll have the same specs, interior, engine size, and optional extras. Due to the lack of regulations in the industry, Laser Eye Surgery clinics and providers… Read more

How much would you pay for perfect eyesight?

What comes to mind when you think of the word priceless? Relationships with friends and loved ones, particular memories and experiences, special heirlooms or trinkets? Thankfully, most things we consider to be priceless we never really have to put a price on. It’s unlikely that someone will approach you one day with an offer to buy Betsy, your beloved miniature schnauzer, for a cool million in cash. Unfortunately, however, there are some priceless things we’re forced to assess in terms of their monetary value. These tend… Read more

Can I give surgery as a present to someone?

Enabling someone to experience some of the world’s greatest thrills freely, things like rock climbing, skiing, surfing, and scuba driving, without the limitations of glasses or contact lenses, is a truly invaluable gift. Even the ability to go about your day without fiddling with or worrying about visual aids is enough to make a significant impact in someone’s life. The pain of having to remember them wherever you go, the inconvenience of replacing broken or lost pairs, the embarrassment of crawling on your hands and… Read more

Laser eye treatments

Have you ever read a description of a new product, treatment, or therapy, and immediately switched off due to an excess of overcomplicated jargon? I mean, what’s the point in using complex and technical language if they know it will fly straight over the heads of the vast majority of people? It’s a good question — and one that reveals a lot about the company or person behind the particular product or service they are selling. You’ll find this when browsing the Laser… Read more

Can you get Laser Eye Surgery on finance?

It’s no secret that high-quality laser eye surgery isn’t cheap. In fact, to the average person, receiving Laser Eye Surgery under the guidance of an expert surgeon can seem somewhat of a luxury. With fees stretching up to and beyond £3000 per eye, it’s clear to see why. And with a weak array of alternative methods for correcting vision, this can leave many people feeling stuck with a life framed by glasses or hindered by contact lenses. Or potentially even more worryingly, lead them… Read more

How long does laser eye surgery last?

For a procedure that can be performed in less than 12 minutes, you’d be right in questioning how long its effects last. That’s without even mentioning ReLEx SMILE, the latest treatment to come out of the industry, that only takes several minutes to conduct. This even shorter treatment time also means less time spent in recovery, and potentially even more scepticism. I mean, it’s not often you hear someone can have surgery one morning and be back at work the very next day… Read more

Common unsubstantiated myths and misinformation about LASIK eye surgery

Laser Eye Surgery may leave you with permanent side effects and a reduction in your overall quality of vision, or even worse, a lack of vision altogether. At least that’s what will happen according to the tabloids and dated entries on obscure online forums. Going by the facts: the experiences of previous patients, the rigorous clinical data, and the results of clinics all around the world, and it’s a whole other story. But with the internet being awash with information, dating as far… Read more

An ophthalmic surgeon’s guide to Laser Eye Surgery

As specialists in the medical and surgical care of the eye, many ophthalmic surgeons go on to become experts in Laser Eye Surgery. The routes they take to get there, however, vary greatly in form and length; years of work in ophthalmology and patient care, membership and duty in professional organisations such as The British Society for Refractive Surgery (BSRS), the completion of clinical research programs and numerous specialist fellowships. Prof. Dan Reinstein, who admits to taking a particularly long route, is… Read more
