Fix Digital Eye Strain Now to Keep Your Vision

Our eyes are the packhorses of the modern world. We work at computers all day long, stare at our phones in between, watch TV when we get home, and all the while they take the strain — literally. What I’m talking about is digital eye strain. One of the main problems of digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome is that when using screens, we only blink around 5-10 times a minute — instead of the standard 15 times a minute. Because… Read more

Glasses, Contacts, Laser Eye Surgery: Which One Suits My Lifestyle Best?

You may think your glasses or contacts suit your lifestyle, but it’s more likely you’ve adapted your lifestyle to fit around them. When you decide to use corrective eyewear, you sign an invisible contract that puts certain limitations on what you can and can’t do. If you’ve lived most of your life under the constraints of one of these contracts, you may not even notice it anymore. Like working a 9-5 job, until you take a sabbatical, have a midlife crisis, or… Read more

Time for new sunglasses

Ever since I was four, and I was forced to wear the same blue navy sweater and same brown straight leg trousers as everyone else at school, I’ve despised being told what to wear. It’s not that I feel I should be able to express myself through my clothes, or even that I feel it’s an insult to my style. It’s just that generic, off-the-shelf clothing is so limited, ugly, and poorly designed that no one could ever really feel comfortable or… Read more

Like having a baby or dropping 10 stone, there are some things in life that you simply don’t know what they’re going to be like until you go ahead and do them. Getting rid of your glasses is one of them. From admiring yourself in size ten pants and noticing the little signs of a baby getting older, to appreciating the details of a sunrise and reading this article, good vision is a prerequisite for everything meaningful.

How to age gracefully (with Phil)

There comes a point in everyone’s life when they realise the inevitable truth of ageing. Even though it’s happening from the very moment we’re born, it can be decades until we have to face the fact — most of us pushing it away, for as long as possible. For Phillip Schofield, that time came at just sixteen years of age, when his hair started to turn grey. That was the start of Phillips’s rocky relationship with ageing. He’s since spoken out about… Read more

Top 5 coffee stops near us

Tea is the quintessential English beverage. Just like our favourite alcoholic tipple is beer and our most loved dish is the good traditional roast dinner. Or, at least, so you would have thought. Gin is actually the leading alcoholic drink of choice for Brits. Going by the quantity we eat, we much prefer the humble sandwich, over a Sunday roast. And when it comes to tea, well, although we invented the tea bag and are still up there with the Chinese and Turks… Read more

Looking after your eyes on the London tube

Take a ride on the London underground and you’re destined to see sights you won’t have seen anywhere else. Strange characters dressed up as mythical creatures and dominatrix on their way to work. Longtime commuters sprawled out with shoes off and feet up. Even couples celebrating the best day of their lives by getting married on their favourite line. The problem is, as an enclosed, poorly ventilated environment that’s also full of metal, the tube is one of the worst places for… Read more

Choosing sunglasses that really do protect your eyes

Factor 50 suntan lotion, check. Towels, check. Hats, SPF lip balm, 100 percent UV protected clothing, bathing suits, and parasol, check, check, check. And don’t forget plenty of water, hydration salts, first aid kit, fruit, snacks, and last but not least, a pair of high-quality sunglasses. We associate all these things with a holiday abroad and a long, sizzling day at the beach. But really, many of them — okay, maybe not the parasol —  could be useful on even cloudy days… Read more

How to avoid eye strain

Like migraines, weak glutes, and depression, eye strain seems like just another part of modern day life we have to accept. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t end the work day by rubbing my eyes and blinking like a maniac. There was, however, a time when it was much worse — when I wore contact lenses. My eyes would be instantly as dry as Ghandi’s flipflops if I simply made a sandwich or opened a window, never mind use a… Read more
