Meet Glenn Carp: One of the UK’s most highly trained laser eye surgeons

There are few people in the industry who’ve worked at over a handful of leading hospitals, won multiple awards for research and performance, and are members of too many professional organisations to mention. But Glenn Carp is a rarity. Long before kicking off his career as an Ophthalmic Senior House Officer at Johannesburg Hospital, he was passionate about Ophthalmology. In his first medical role post-training, he’d often perform complex eye surgeries like cataract extractions and take after hours calls of ophthalmic emergencies. And… Read more

Your private invitation to Harley Street

Nestled between two of the capital’s four Royal Parks — Regents and Hyde — as well as the Queen’s very own resting place — Buckingham Palace — is where you’ll find Harley Street, the infamous medical hub, and one of the most prestigious postcodes in the nation’s capital. When I say prestigious, I don’t mean like Kensington Palace Gardens or certain parts of Belgravia where average property prices can be in the tens of millions. Harley Street is a humble little area that… 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

Is it worth travelling to London for Laser Eye Surgery if you live in Leeds?

Getting from Leeds to London used to be an awkward affair that took an age to plan and even longer to arrive. Today within less than two and a half hours you can be in the nation’s capital, sipping a hot latte down by the Thames or exploring the depths of The British Museum, all for the cost of a nice lunch in Leeds (well, maybe excluding the latte). And travel times are only getting even shorter. With the introduction of HS2, the… Read more

8 reasons a high staff to patient ratio makes a difference

When was the last time someone sat you down and asked you a series of personal questions about your life? For me, it was yesterday. Unsatisfied with the care of my GP, I tracked down a medical herbalist near where I live, situated a few miles away along the winding narrow lanes and undulated hills of the Cumbrian countryside. Arriving at her home-based practice, according to the map and instructions she’d scanned in and sent me (you can’t rely on GPS out here),… Read more

Where does the laser eye treatment take place?

Depending on which Laser Eye Surgery clinic you go to, whether it’s a high street provider, private hospital, or independent clinic, exactly where your procedure takes place will differ. There are several commonalities, though. For instance, it’s sure to resemble an operating theatre, house various pieces of medical equipment and apparatus, and, hopefully, be home to a friendly and expert laser eye surgeon. You may be thinking apart from that, what more do you really need? Well, it turns out a lot… Read more

The number one reason Londoners have Laser Eye Surgery

Along with the likes of New York, Paris and Tokyo, London is known as one of the world’s leading global cities. The capital has become a central hub and a magnet for talent, drawing people from all over the globe and producing world-class performers in everything from the arts and media to finance and healthcare. It’s unsurprising then that ever since the 19th century, London has been a centre of medical excellence; with Harley Street, in particular, being recognised for its large… Read more

Finding a good LASIK surgeon

You want to find a good LASIK surgeon. Of course you do. You wouldn’t trust your eyesight in the hands of anyone who was considered anything less. But what does it actually mean to be a good laser eye surgeon? Does being a qualified doctor and having some experience, and maybe a name badge, make them so? Or does them having a special this-week-only offer do the trick? The reality is many people are unaware they need to differentiate between someone who… Read more

A post operative guide to Laser Eye Surgery

The moment you sit forward in the chair and glance around the room,  discovering you can see fine details up close, or that the hands of the clock in the distance are now sharp and crisp, is incomparable to any other. It’s this moment that—after several weeks or months of waiting and preparing—patients look forward to most. But all doesn’t end here. Although you can nip down to the high street, find a Laser Eye Surgery provider, and have the actual procedure… Read more

Is it time to take another look at Laser Eye Surgery?

There always comes a time when you look back on something and say, “Hang on a minute, why did I think that?” Even when the solution was staring you right in the face—maybe even more so—it’s easy to dismiss it for no solid or justified reasons. Maybe the thing in question conjured up a negative feeling or a fuzzy memory of something you once read in the depths of the internet, or a sense of overwhelm from a lack of knowledge about it,… Read more
