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

Sky Diver Jakob

One week after having ReLEx SMILE surgery, Jakob Anguiers, skydiver and amateur Youtuber, was hurtling towards the ground at a speed of around 125mph. Although he’d done many jumps in the past, this was the first time he’d done so in what he calls Ultra 4k definition, and crucially, without having to constantly worry about his contact lenses. Think about it. You put your gear on, go through all the preparations and safety checks, and board one of the smallest planes you’ve ever… Read more

Never buy a pair of glasses again

Recently, while slumped over a Pret salad at work wondering why I never seem to have any money, I started working out what I could save by cooking an extra portion of food each night and bringing it to work for lunch the next day. It sounds like a student exercise, but stick with me. When cooking for one, a meal — protein, carbs, and veg, or a hearty salad — costs me on average £3.20. Make that go a little further and… Read more

Why should the young have all the fun?

Every year we celebrate our chronological age, i.e how many years we’ve lived since our mothers performed the gracious act of bringing us into the world. But once you get beyond thirty or forty you begin to realise this isn’t a true representation of how old you are. Somehow the numbers keep going up but you don’t feel like you’re ageing with them. In some senses, you feel younger than ever. Your mind is sharp, your body is in good shape, and… Read more

Why should the young have all the fun?

See more. Clearly.

Sure, you’ve visited the Grand Canyon, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, or the Pyramids of Egypt, but did you really see them? I mean, you have the photos and everything to prove it, right? But when you were actually there, beyond your phone and camera lens, your partner complaining about their feet, and the thoughts about what you were going to do for dinner, did you truly see them in all their magnificent glory? We know the trivialities above can get in the way of… Read more

A day in the life of Dan Reinstein: Founder of London Vision Clinic

What is a day in the life like of a doctor who holds multiple postgraduate qualifications, is a fellow of three sub-speciality regulatory bodies, works on a team that designs leading technology, and is among the best in the world at what they do? One word: Busy. With such a hectic schedule and a highly sought after skill set, there’s never a dull moment in the day-to-day life of Prof Reinstein. In fact, it would be much easier to list the things he doesn’t get up to than does. But… Read more
