What’s The Secret To Great LASIK Surgery Aftercare?

Trust is vital no matter what area of your body or health you’re dealing with. But with Laser Eye Surgery being more widely available than almost any other medical treatment, this statement is ever truer when it comes to fixing your eyes. But when we talk about trust, we don’t just mean you have a “good feeling” about the clinic or surgeon. We mean they have a proven track record of treating patients with your prescription, that they use the latest technology… Read more

Short sighted eye surgery

If you’re shortsighted, Laser Eye Surgery was made for you — literally. One of the earliest laser procedures, PRK, was specifically developed to treat short-sightedness, also known as myopia. But even long before PRK was introduced, surgeons were using Laser Eye Surgery to free people from poor near vision. That’s because myopia is one of the most common and easiest to treat refractive errors. It occurs due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors disrupting the normal growth of the eye, leading it… Read more

What happens if you blink during Laser Eye Surgery?

You do it anything from 5 to 15 times a minute, every minute, every waking hour of the day. That’s 30,000 times, 99.9 percent of which happen without you being aware of it. It’s amazing really: we get on with our day while our bodies do all the blinking for us. Sliding those wafer thin folds of skin up and down whenever we need a little moisture or antibacterial protection from irritants or require a barrier against oncoming objects or some other assistance… Read more

Laser surgery for long sight

I often wish I was long-sighted rather than short-sighted. If I could only see well at a distance, for one, I could look in the mirror in the morning with a smile on my face, none the wiser to the ever darker bags under my eyes, the new spots on my forehead, or the deepening wrinkles. But best of all I could zone out of boring conversations, block out distractions around me, and generally be more at ease with everyday situations like… Read more

Laser eye surgery vs lens replacement

Lens replacement surgery is most commonly used as a way to treat patients with cataracts. Over 300,000 people in Britain alone have the procedure each year. Cataracts are generally an age-related condition that mostly affects people over 40, but it can occur in younger people. It appears as a clouding of the lens of the eye and causes vision to become hazy, oversensitive, dull, or in some other way impaired, depending on the type you have. As cataracts can greatly affect an individual’s… Read more

The cost of lasik surgery

There’s no shortage of companies telling you why you should dish out more for Laser Eye Surgery… “Put your sight in the hands of a clinic you can trust.” “Your eyes deserve only the best care.” But at the same time, there’s also a smothering of companies letting you know you can pay less… “We’ve slashed treatment prices in our Spring/Summer sale!” “Laser Eye Surgery is now more affordable than ever!” Whatever they’re touting, most of us have more wits about us… Read more

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

Serious about sport. Serious about vision.

Nothing can get in the way of you and sport. Torrential rain, family obligations, a thick covering of snow — these pesky little disruptions are enough to stop most people from lacing up their running shoes or getting on the bike, but not you. There could be a warning of impending nuclear war and mini-van sized hailstones pelting down outside, but that still wouldn’t stop you. All you need is your physical health and most your marbles still intact, and you’re set. Unfortunately, this means anyone with… Read more

Can laser treat my astigmatism?

  If you have astigmatism, you’re probably hoping I get straight to the point. If you have really bad astigmatism, you’re probably not even reading this — or if you are it’s all a blur. Either way, you’ll no doubt rather be doing something else right now. But if you’ve got a cornea shaped like a rugby ball, then, unfortunately, this is your life. And as there’s little more you can do than get a pair of glasses or contacts prescription, searching for… Read more

Astigmatism and Lasik surgery

According to some eye experts, all of us have astigmatism to some degree or other. But not all of us suffer from the eye strain, headaches, and fatigue that comes with the more severe cases. For this, unless you like spending your days squinting and rubbing your temples, you need some sort of corrective eyewear to function properly — or at least you used to. In the past, the best way and only way to treat astigmatism was with glasses or toric/hard contact… Read more
