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.

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

Flying after Laser Eye Surgery: Dos and Don’ts

I love travelling. But for most of my life, wherever possible, I’ve done everything I can to avoid doing it by air. From packing to picking up the bags, there’s not one single moment of it I enjoy. And that’s before considering airport security, the delays, and the basketball player sitting on the plane in the seat behind. So even if it meant taking a 12-hour bus ride in the sweltering heat or three tuk-tuks, a boat, and a train to avoid… 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.

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

It’s not because we don’t cry enough — although some blubbering emotional therapy surely wouldn’t hurt. The problem is, if it’s not so obvious to you now reading this on a phone or computer, that screen use and the consumption of media has become the dominant way in which we spend our time.
