Does it really take 10,000 operations to be an expert?

There’s an idea that’s long circulated the space of self-mastery and professional development about what it takes to become an official, bonified ‘expert’. The idea came out of a 1993 paper by Dr Anders Ericsson, in which he suggested that through committing 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, you can become an expert in almost any subject or field. Ericsson’s research picked up traction after it appeared in Talent is Overrated, a book which flipped the idea of inborn talents and natural ability on its… Read more

Understanding your prescription

You’ve just had an eye exam, and your optometrist or ophthalmologist has given you a new glasses prescription, full of all the measurements you need to attain clear and comfortable vision. They may have told you you’re short or long-sighted, or that you have astigmatism, but when you look at your prescription, it doesn’t simply say “long-sighted”.

Does Flap Thickness Matter?

Laser Eye Surgery to correct impaired vision has always involved reshaping the cornea, but the thickness of the corneal flap treated in the surgery has reduced significantly over the years, so much so that today, there is even a flapless form of laser surgery. This says a lot for how much flap thickness is related with safety during, and recovery following surgery. Thinner flaps preserve a thicker, more structurally integral cornea, meaning less discomfort, faster recovery times, minimal risk of haze, and… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery Fears: What If My Optometrist Finds A Problem I Didn’t Know About?

However, something that is perhaps discussed less often is the common fear that a doctor may find a problem that is bigger than what the appointment was initially booked for. This fear is,… Read more
