Reading glasses are never cool. Ever.

What do your glasses say about you? It’s a simple question with, at least on the surface, a simple answer. They either say “Hey, I’m cool.” or, provide people with an indication of your age, or just highlight the fact you simply cannot see very well. And oftentimes all three. But look beyond the four-eyed facade, behind the thick rims that sit between your eyes and the world, and you can see they’re actually communicating a lot more than you’d first think.… Read more

Is Youthful Vision Without Reading Glasses Possible?

When you hear about a new age-defying treatment, it can sometimes come with a slew of catches like waring off after a few weeks or risks like infections and nausea or some obscure side effects. This is the price we pay for trying to work against the body’s natural process of ageing, instead of accepting it and working with it. We’ve long followed this approach, relying on creams, tucks, injections, and other treatments to patch up problems so we can look good… Read more

Does Laser Blended Vision Work For Everyone?

We all have those moments of seniority when you realise, for one reason or other, that you’re not as young as you used to be. For some, though, it happens a lot more often than it needs to. Maybe it’s that you struggle to stay awake later than 10 pm on a Saturday night or your medicine cabinet is starting to look more and more like a pharmacy. And every day you spend less time with the grandkids before collapsing. There are just some… Read more

How to age gracefully (with Phil)

There comes a point in everyone’s life when they realise the inevitable truth of ageing. Even though it’s happening from the very moment we’re born, it can be decades until we have to face the fact — most of us pushing it away, for as long as possible. For Phillip Schofield, that time came at just sixteen years of age, when his hair started to turn grey. That was the start of Phillips’s rocky relationship with ageing. He’s since spoken out about… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery for older patients

The last thing you want as you get older is to have surgery. The uncomfortable feeling of being in hospital, the lengthy recovery times, the hassle and expense — not to mention the worry the procedure won’t work as desired. But all that is nothing compared to if the surgery is directly related to the fact you’re getting older. Like you don’t feel awkward enough with your gown and bare buttocks, you have the added embarrassment of being seen as a geriatric… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery vs lens replacement

Lens replacement surgery is most commonly used as a way to treat patients with cataracts. Over 300,000 people in Britain alone have the procedure each year. Cataracts are generally an age-related condition that mostly affects people over 40, but it can occur in younger people. It appears as a clouding of the lens of the eye and causes vision to become hazy, oversensitive, dull, or in some other way impaired, depending on the type you have. As cataracts can greatly affect an individual’s… 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

Blurry, hazy & foggy. Not a hangover, but your vision in the morning

Dragging your body as if someone snuck in during the night and pumped it full of lead, you stumble to the bathroom and turn on the light. You stop, groaning and wincing from its harsh glow, and make your way to the seat — being careful to avoid any reflective surfaces (not that you could see anyway). Just like the famous sculpture ‘The Thinker’, you prepare to sit and contemplate some of life’s biggest questions. So, who am I? And where am I?… Read more
