Why We Strive to Be The Best

We would all like to be the best at something, whether it’s the best parent to your kids, the best brain surgeon in the country, or the best at making lasagne in your family. For us, it’s Laser Eye Surgery. And it wouldn’t be so silly to expect it would be the same for all the other clinics and providers in our industry, too. Especially for clinics like ours, founded by specialist eye surgeons who’s vocations are to grant as many people as… Read more

8 Things you can’t do wearing contact lens

When you first start wearing contact lenses, it can be like receiving your ticket to visual freedom — especially if you’ve worn glasses for a long time. But as the days and weeks and years pass, the reality of what you’ve bought into becomes all too clear. You start seeing how much of a hinderance contacts actually are, their benefits start to fade into the background, and you begin wondering if they’re actually the convenient and promising solution you thought they were.… Read more

At what prescription do you become legally blind?

You would think knowing if you were blind or not would be a simple thing. You can’t see nothin’. The world beyond your nose is just one big blur, and trying to do anything without your contacts or glasses always ends in harm or disaster. But nothing is ever that simple, and not least our vision. Your eyes are one of the most complex systems in the known universe, and there are as many types and degrees of vision as there are shades… Read more

The most common fears of Laser Eye Surgery

As humans, there are certain basic fears we’re born with. Things like being separated or rejected from a group and suffering a loss of autonomy that leaves us unable to take care of ourselves. As a function of these basic fears, we’re biologically wired to prevent anything happening to us that may in any way lead to one or more of them playing out. It’s why we don’t like heights, climbing into small spaces, going underwater, or being alone for too long. It’s also… Read more

What’s the best view in London?

Even if you live in London, you can go weeks or months without really seeing it. Your eyes can see to a level of quality and detail that’s equivalent a 576-megapixel camera. But when caught up in the mix of all the hustle and bustle, all that power can be dedicated solely to navigating tourists and dodging traffic. Not to mention chuggers and cyclists. And even if you’re just visiting for the weekend, your eye’s field of view is simply not wide… Read more

Why laser is a better solution if you have an astigmatism

Just like no nose is totally straight and no lips perfectly round and plump (at least naturally), no eye is one hundred percent spherical. The reality is, then, that most people have some degree of astigmatism — an abnormal curvature of the eye that causes light to focus unevenly on the retina. If you’re reading this, chances are your two little globular organs are a little more irregularly shaped than the next person. Depending on the severity of your astigmatism, they may even resemble… Read more

The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery

Just a few years ago, the outlook for Laser Eye Surgery seemed somewhat bleak. Consumer watchdog Which? had published a report that highlighted deep and widespread problems among clinics, from insufficient advice and hot-air promises to deceiving prices and unrealistic claims. But the report was fair and comprehensive. And whereas it revealed that this may be the case for some Laser Eye Surgery clinics, it also showed it wasn’t a reflection of the many other private and independent clinics that do fair… Read more

Should You Really Wear Contact Lenses For A Full Day?

Contact lenses are worn by millions of people around the world to help improve their eyesight and decrease the need for glasses. However, contact lenses and contact lens “abuse” can lead to serious eye problems. “Abuse” is the term used to describe contact lens habits that could be harmful and go against instructions by the manufacturer and your eye care provider. Some of the most common issues are patients wearing the contact lenses too many hours each day, sleeping in the lenses,… 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

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends? When you’re a glasses or contacts wearer, these images of summer are nothing more than idealistic fantasies. The reality is, your best time of the year is more likely consumed by fighting off allergies and eye problems and dealing with all the inconveniences that come with… Read more
