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

Glasses, Contacts, Laser Eye Surgery: Which One Suits My Lifestyle Best?

You may think your glasses or contacts suit your lifestyle, but it’s more likely you’ve adapted your lifestyle to fit around them. When you decide to use corrective eyewear, you sign an invisible contract that puts certain limitations on what you can and can’t do. If you’ve lived most of your life under the constraints of one of these contracts, you may not even notice it anymore. Like working a 9-5 job, until you take a sabbatical, have a midlife crisis, or… Read more

Not All Surgeons Are Created Equal

There’s a barber I’ve been going to ever since I was six and I first rebelled against my mum’s quick and easy bowl haircut. I remember how I would look forward to going every few weeks to Henry’s and getting my hair cut by the old veteran Henry himself. I’d climb up and sit in the aeroplane-shaped seat and for the next ten minutes be treat like a sergeant general in the Royal Air Force. Henry had served and cut hair in… Read more

Always Get A Second Opinion

For a long time, the line between what was and what wasn’t possible was solid and definitive like a concrete wall. But in 2018, with technologies advancing at an ever more rapid pace and new innovations replacing old ones all the time, we’re realising it’s actually much more like a fine line in the sand. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in the field of vision correction. For example, walk up any high street in search for a fix for your vision, and… Read more

Can SMILE Eye Surgery Treat short-sightedness?

What I’m talking about is Small Incision Lenticule Extraction surgery, commonly known as SMILE. This procedure, through a… 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
