When it’s time to get reading glasses, you know that’s it. At first, you only need them for reading the back of packaging, your phone, and occasionally other small text. Not long after, though, you’re wearing them for most tasks, and seemingly spending any time you’re not wearing them looking for them. And then not long after that, you can’t go anywhere without them, and they’ve become a permanent feature on your face. That’s the thing about loosing your reading vision as… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery Treat the Loss Of Reading Vision? [Video]

Although when it happens to you it can feel like an incredibly personal thing, the loss of reading vision that is evident around the age of 45 is an almost universal condition. Known as presbyopia or ‘ageing eyes’, the typical solution to this inevitable predicament is to pick up a cheap pair of supermarket granny readers or take the plunge and commit to changing your look and getting a more stylish pair. However, albeit less common, there is another solution that, rather… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery vs Clear Lens Exchange (IOLs)

Working out whether to have Laser Eye Surgery or Clear Lens Exchange intra-ocular lens (IOL) procedure can be a tricky process. The two procedures both have their unique advantages, and they work in distinctly different ways. Whereas Clear Lens Exchange works by replacing the eye’s natural lens and is a common solution to cataracts, Laser Eye Surgery adjusts the eye’s natural lens and is considered a safer and more effective way to treat refractive errors like shortsightedness and longsightedness.  That being said,… Read more

Guide to Contact Lens vs Glasses vs Laser Eye Surgery

You would think it’s pretty easy to work out which is better: contact lenses, glasses, or Laser Eye Surgery. But depending on who you ask, what they’ve experienced and read, what stage of life they are in, and who they work for, you may get a differing set of facts and opinions.

Forums are generally unreliable and anecdotal, news websites are typically inflated and biased, and blog articles are… Read more

Can Laser Eye Surgery Benefit Ageing Eyes?

Despite celebs and billionaires having access to the best anti-ageing tricks and treatments available, it still happens to everyone. Yep, even “beautiful people” like Beyonce and Dicaprio and super CEOs like Elon Musk can’t (yet) fight off the years and stop themselves getting older. Such a thought may help to give you a little consolation, at least briefly. The fact is, getting older isn’t something many of us like to face. In fact, many of us (ahem, not guilty) spend much of… Read more

Nothing ages you more than reading glasses

If you’ve ever had any anti-ageing treatments or tried something that claims to make you look younger, then you’re probably a little sceptical about anything new that hits the market and claims to be the answer to eternal youth. Pretty much everything in this category comes at some cost. Whether it be it only lasts a few weeks or months, it has several risks or unfavourable side-effects, it costs the Earth to keep using, or it demands severe restraint or hours of… Read more

Here’s to the readers, the adventurers, the young-at-hearters

If Dylan Thomas’s 1947 poem, “Do not go gentle into that good night”, could be summed up in one line, it would be: “Old age should burn and rave at close of day”. But it can’t be. Although short and concise as it is, Thomas crafted every single word to try and convey the full power of his feelings on a very personal matter, his father’s imminent death, and get across exactly why he shouldn’t give up on life and instead “Rage, rage… Read more

Ditch the specs and grow old disgracefully

As you get older and the day arrives on which you wake up and suddenly realise you’ve become an “old” person, there are certain rules you must begin to follow. Whether this is carrying around hankies everywhere with you, investing in a new dressing gown or perhaps buying sensible and supportive footwear. Stick to such rules, along with the most important of all, always keeping your reading glasses on hand, and you may just keep your dignity and grow old gracefully. But… Read more

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
