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. This is especially the case when you turn to the internet for answers. 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

Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If I Have Macular Degeneration? [video]

The leading cause of sight loss in the UK, macular degeneration is a common visual condition that affects millions of people around the world. Although it’s most often considered as age-related, macular degeneration is a genetic condition that can affect anyone at any time. Macular degeneration comes in two types, “early” or “dry” (the most common), which involves the thinning of the retina, and “exudative” or “wet”, which involves normal blood vessels growing underneath the retina. Both typically affect your ability to… 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

How to Avoid Steamed-up Glasses

You’re riding your motorbike when suddenly your glasses start to fog. You’re cooking dinner when suddenly your glasses start to fog. You’re stepping out of your car, skiing in France, walking down the freezer aisle at Sainsbury’s, when suddenly, you guessed it, your glasses start to fog. Just like picking up the occasional scratch and losing the odd pair, foggy lenses seems an unavoidable part of being a glasses wearer. And other than avoiding all these activities altogether, the best you can typically do… Read more

How to age gracefully (with Phil)

There comes a point in everyone’s life when they realise the inevitable truth of ageing. Even though it’s happening from the very moment we’re born, it can be decades until we have to face the fact — most of us pushing it away, for as long as possible. For Phillip Schofield, that time came at just sixteen years of age, when his hair started to turn grey. That was the start of Phillips’s rocky relationship with ageing. He’s since spoken out about… Read more
