Age-related macular degeneration

Age related macular degeneration (AMD) is, in fact, the most common cause of vision loss for people age 50 and older. Even if you have the condition for a long time, you may not experience any vision loss. For some people, however, AMD progresses at a much faster rate and can quickly lead to central vision loss in one or both eyes. This is one reason why it’s important to be aware of AMD and to know how to spot its warning signs. Associated… Read more

There’s some things you can’t control as you age. A declining ability to climb stairs. The fact you can’t party as hard as when you were 20.

Just like other parts of the body, your eyes are susceptible to the ageing process. Issues like glaucoma, cataracts, and macular… Read more

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.

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.

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.

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
