Does Hay Fever Affect Laser Eye Surgery?

Here London Vision Clinic, we are looking forward to the summer (and distinctly unimpressed by the recent rain!)

Hay fever – a form of allergic rhinitis –  is an allergic reaction that occurs when pollen from grasses and plants is inhaled into the nose or gets into the eyes. Depending on where you live and… Read more

Life With Contact Lenses

Life with contact lenses may seem a blessing compared to the frustrations of glasses but, for some people, it can also be tough.  Your lenses may not fog up like glasses, your vision won’t be subjected to a limiting frame, and there are no fragile arms or nose bridges that are at risk of being broken – but contact lenses are far from problem-free.  In fact, they can sometimes be more, not less, frustrating than specs. At the very least, contact lenses are… Read more

Nurse Angela’s Surgery Story: One Year Later…

Only a few weeks ago, we passed the year anniversary of London Vision Clinic nurse Angela’s own Initial Screening. Angela was excited, but, having been told in the past (by a High Street laser eye surgery) that her prescription was too high, her astigmatism too great and her corneas too thin  for her to ever be considered for laser surgery, she hadn’t allowed herself to get her hopes too high. Even after being told – following an extensive range of eye tests… Read more

I wish I had gone and had it done sooner!” -Angela It is not uncommon for many of our patients to be led, driven, or guided to us through months (or even years!) of extensive research. This is sometimes in the form of talking to friends. Other times it is over the course of many long nights in front of the computer. Sometimes… Read more

Life In ‘2020’ When Glasses No Longer Exist…

It’s strange to think that just a few years ago, people were wearing glasses. Though it seems alien to us now, it was perfectly normal to carry a ‘pair of specs’ around with you to use for reading. How prehistoric! People were actually too nervous to correct their vision, and instead opted for the inconvenience, expense and hassle that reading glasses entailed. How times have changed… Imagine the annoyance of having to dig out your glasses every time you wanted to use… Read more
