Quality Laser Eye Treatments

We see it all the time when we’re out to dinner, shopping on the high street, or browsing through magazines and catalogues. But it’s pretty odd to see it when researching a medical procedure. I mean, to say something is quality implies that there are other versions of it that are not. It stands it up against the plethora of what’s on offer and says that this is of a higher standard and better than that. So what does quality Laser Eye Surgery actually mean? You instantly… Read more

Never wear glasses or contact lenses again

In the early hours of January 1st this year, after one too many gin tonics, my friend slipped on some ice, faceplanted the pavement, chipped her front tooth, and received her first gift of the New Year: a grade III ankle sprain. Normally incredibly active and incapable of sitting still for thirty seconds, she was bound to crutches for nearly two months. That meant no sport, exercise, or even skipping up the stairs. Or in her words, “This year is cursed I can’t… Read more

How safe is Laser Eye Surgery?

When asking friends and family and talking to people around the office about Laser Eye Surgery, you’ll probably find a lot more people have had it than you first thought. Not too long ago we couldn’t escape knowing if someone we know had received Laser Eye Surgery — they’d spend weeks fretting about the procedure, posting blogs about their journey, and making everyone else share their experience. But today it’s not so much of a big deal, even the tabloids and media outlets… Read more

Anxious about Laser Eye Surgery? Read why you don’t have to be

Most of us have a weird, visceral reaction to the thought of someone touching our eyes. And even hearing the word mentioned in the same breath as ‘laser’ is enough to make us cringe. So when it comes to actually considering or preparing for the surgery, well, you can take that icky feeling and times it by ten. Add to that even the slightest trace of negativity about Laser Eye Surgery online, and you have a perfect recipe for widespread fear. But apart… Read more

Why are independent reviews so useful?

It’s Friday night, and instead of hitting the usual dinner spot you and your partner decide to try somewhere new. But rather than strolling up and down the streets of Marylebone, casually browsing menus, peering through windows, and trying desperately not to start an argument, you reach for your phone. You call one of your friends, the who shares similar tastes and reckons themselves a bit of a food critic (we all have one). Or, like most of us, you take the… Read more

How long to get used to blended vision?

Presbyopia, or age related reading vision changes, can cause eye strain and headaches, reduces your ability to read small print and makes it near enough impossible to do anything close-up. And if that wasn’t enough, when you look for a solution for it, you’re bound to come away even more frustrated. For something that impacts millions of people around the world — 11 million in the US alone — and is pretty much guaranteed to affect anyone beyond the age of 40, this is… Read more

How quickly should you expect to return to doing normal stuff after treatment?

What would be the first thing you’d do after having Laser Eye Surgery? Head down to the coast for a weekend break? Take a hike in the Cotswolds and enjoy the scenery in all its glory? Or maybe finally book that skydive or adventure sports holiday? Yeah, they’re all nice ideas, but let’s get real. It’s more likely you’ll dive back into a work project, head down to your favourite bar for a few drinks with friends, or curl up on the sofa and… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery finance choices

  Napolean allegedly said we’re a nation of shopkeepers, suggesting that England’s riches and wealth was all thanks to good old commerce. And who can argue with that — as a nation, there’s nothing we love more than to shop. And so when it comes to hitting the high street or online stores to buy our goods and services, there’s certainly no shortage of options to help us do so. One of which that is rapidly growing in popularity is financing. Want a new… Read more

How long after laser surgery can I watch TV?

When you think of someone recovering from surgery, you picture them in a hospital bed or lying on the couch in their dressing gown, indulging in a family size chocolate bar and passively consuming the joy that is day-time TV. There’s nothing quite like a rowdy family dispute on Jeremy Kyle or a tour of extravagant holiday homes in Andalusia to help you forget about your current situation. But what about if it’s not your legs, stomach, or [insert body part here] recovering… Read more

What is informed consent?

Due to its popularity and incredibly short recovery time, it’s easy for clinics to gloss over the fact that Laser Eye Surgery is a highly complex surgical procedure. However, the reality is that, just like other surgical procedures, it comes with its own set of risks, chances of complications, and various terms and conditions that patients need to take into consideration. Fully understanding and agreeing to these conditions is the part of the Laser Eye Surgery process that clinics refer to as… Read more
