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

How Denise Van Outen stays looking young

Denise Van Outen certainly isn’t one to shy away from the spotlight. The actor come presenter, singer, dancer, has hosted hit breakfast TV shows, played leading roles in West End and Broadway musicals, and long been a familiar face in homes all around the country, appearing regularly on shows like Strictly, Sunday Brunch, and Loose Women. And why would she shy away? Ever since her first TV performance as a teenager in the children’s sci-fi comedy series, Kappatoo, until her more recent gig as Karin… 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

Reading glasses are never cool

In the early 90’s, Doc Martins and flannel shirts hit the mainstream fashion scene. Soon after, babydoll dresses appeared in the wardrobes of most young girls. Fast forward twenty years later, and, as the notion goes, they all came back into style. There’s a lot of debate about how long this cycle of nostalgia runs, but twenty years is a good rule of thumb. Some people say it’s more like forty years. Others say everything is simultaneously in and out of style all the time.… Read more

You wouldn’t think it, but working as a freelancer there are many times I miss being in a big office and working under the iron thumb of a boss. For one, I wouldn’t suddenly decide to take an extended lunch break when I have a deadline to meet the next morning; they also probably wouldn’t stand for my clothes rack/kitchen counter/desk either. But the main impact having a stern face looming over me would be in cutting down the endless hours I spend — or would that be waste?… Read more

Where do you keep your reading glasses?

At around a million times faster than NASA’s 1960’s computer, a smartphone is an incredibly sophisticated piece of tech. With it, you can do things like pay for groceries, translate text, and stay in touch with your loved ones. Without it, well, we would barely achieve anything. And as such an indispensable part of our life that brings us endless pleasure (thank you Candy Crush), we have no trouble carting it around with us everywhere we go. Reading glasses, on the other hand, do… Read more

Protecting your eyes at work

Usually it’s only once we get home after a long, hard day’s work that our attention is drawn to our eyes. We notice they feel tired and strained, that we are rubbing them every few minutes, or that the writing on our Kindle is a little fuzzier than normal. We use our eyes almost every minute of every waking hour of the day. Six or seven hours of which are spent in front of a computer. Include the time staring at our other… Read more
