Can I eat or drink prior to my Laser Eye Surgery?

If you’ve ever had surgery in the past, it’s likely you’ll be familiar with the period of fasting that comes beforehand. If your surgery was a morning procedure, then this may have just meant skipping breakfast. But if you had it scheduled for midday or later, this could have meant going more than 12 hours without eating. Fasting certainly has its uses, but for me, having to do it during the hours leading up to surgery is far from ideal. Comfort food… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more

Guide to Alcohol and Laser Eye Surgery

A week with an unbearable ear infection and no soothing nightcaps? A whole night sober with your mother-in-law? Yeah right. We all know there have been times we’ve sneaked a small one when we shouldn’t have, and for the most part, that’s okay. But when it comes to things like surgery, there can be consequences.

Is It Safe to Dye Your Hair Before or After Laser Eye Surgery ?

There are certain things you just shouldn’t do immediately before or after having Laser Eye Surgery. Down a fishbowl Martini. Go wild with paint at the Holi festival or take your chances at Pamplona’s running of the bulls. Give birth. The reason why such things are to be avoided can seem pretty obvious. For instance, of course you don’t want to go into labour whilst at the clinic and you’re about to have your second eye lasered. But when you look beyond… 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

Guide to PRK/LASEK vs LASIK vs SMILE

Despite there being a seemingly endless list of laser treatments to choose from, when it comes down to it, there are actually only three main types you need to know: PRK/LASEK, LASIK, and SMILE Treatments such as UltraLASIK, Accu-wave LASIK, Custom LASIK UltraLASIKplus, Zyoptix and Wavefront LASIK, are simply brand names that clinics think up in an attempt to differentiate what is effectively the same, albeit packaged slightly differently, treatment. They often do this by taking a treatment such as LASIK and… Read more

What causes dry eyes after laser vision correction? [VIDEO]

Nerves play an important role in the Laser Eye Surgery recovery process. I’m not talking about the jitters, patients are usually very calm by this time — I’m on about a different set of nerves: those on the surface of your eye. The nerves on the surface of the eye are momentarily interrupted because of the pain-free laser process. Thankfully, though, these nerves possess the incredible power to regenerate over a period of three to six months, and will further regenerate over… Read more

Guide to Recovery & Post-Operative Care After Laser Eye Surgery

You might wonder, what clever so-and-so thought it a good idea to place two of the most precious and complex organs in the body in one of the most vulnerable of all areas? Of course, the eyes need to receive and process visual data to create the world around us and guide us through it, so it wouldn’t make much sense for them to be on your knees or inside your gallbladder. But by placing them high up and front and centre,… Read more
