Life With Contact Lenses

Life with contact lenses may seem a blessing compared to the frustrations of glasses but, for some people, it can also be tough.  Your lenses may not fog up like glasses, your vision won’t be subjected to a limiting frame, and there are no fragile arms or nose bridges that are at risk of being broken – but contact lenses are far from problem-free.  In fact, they can sometimes be more, not less, frustrating than specs. At the very least, contact lenses are… Read more

Roy Moëd, Founder Of LifeBook UK, Tells His Laser Eye Surgery Story

Written By Roy Moëd Having good vision is so essential for our jobs and our personal lives – but something we often take for granted. After I studied to become a private pilot, having good eyesight became an undisputed priority, but I continued to ‘make do’ with spectacles when flying and didn’t give it much further thought. It was only when I was attending a charity auction for a children’s charity that I found myself bidding for something that could make my… Read more

Keeping An Eye On Health – The London Vision Clinic Team Are Working Out

By Mary Harboe  Physical fitness is good for our eyes as well as our bodies and minds – and with regular sessions of Zumba and yoga planned for 2014, members of the London Vision Clinic team are hoping to prove the point by working out. It has long been established that a sedentary lifestyle spent staring at a computer screen can have a negative effect on your general health, well-being and comfort, including that of your eyes. However, you may be relieved… Read more

Is Laser Eye Surgery Risky?

“Laser”, “eye” and “surgery” are three words that may, understandably, arouse anxiety. Unlike in the USA, where the procedure is often referred to simply as “LASIK”, one of the first obstacles for someone considering the treatment in this country may well be just getting over their pre-conceptions (which, we have found, are most often mis-conceptions) about what risks Laser Eye Surgery involves. It is completely normal to be anxious about having Laser Eye Surgery: to be honest, if you weren’t, we’d be… Read more

What A Drag It Is Choosing New Glasses…

Written By Mary Harboe As she helps her sister choose some new specs, journalist patient Mary Harboe considers the trials and tribulations of shopping for glasses, and finds herself lucky to be finally spec-free… As a delighted London Vision Clinic patient who – in a weak, sibling-bonding moment – offered to help her sister choose new frames, I was recently struck by what a drag it is selecting new glasses. The selection process can be akin to negotiating a very expensive minefield… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery – A Magical Experience

Many of London Vision Clinic’s patients tell us that their Laser Eye Surgery was “like magic”: quick, easy and painless. Not only the process of Laser Eye Surgery itself, but also the surgery results, are often described as “magical” by our patients. They cannot believe how they can get up in the morning and see perfectly without having to think about their glasses or contact lenses. It may sound simple, but the fact that Laser Eye Surgery can actually improve a person’s… Read more

Nurse Angela’s Surgery Story: One Year Later…

Only a few weeks ago, we passed the year anniversary of London Vision Clinic nurse Angela’s own Initial Screening. Angela was excited, but, having been told in the past (by a High Street laser eye surgery) that her prescription was too high, her astigmatism too great and her corneas too thin  for her to ever be considered for laser surgery, she hadn’t allowed herself to get her hopes too high. Even after being told – following an extensive range of eye tests… Read more

Life In ‘2020’ When Glasses No Longer Exist…

It’s strange to think that just a few years ago, people were wearing glasses. Though it seems alien to us now, it was perfectly normal to carry a ‘pair of specs’ around with you to use for reading. How prehistoric! People were actually too nervous to correct their vision, and instead opted for the inconvenience, expense and hassle that reading glasses entailed. How times have changed… Imagine the annoyance of having to dig out your glasses every time you wanted to use… Read more

The 10 Most Annoying Things About Reading Glasses

In life, it can sometimes feel like there are just two types of people – those that wear glasses and those that don’t. And, let’s be honest, those people who don’t have to wear glasses will never understand some of the frustrations they cause! Are any of these familiar to you? Yes, it happens to us all. And we always ask ourselves why we never learn that when we open the oven door or drain our pasta, the steam will fog up… Read more
