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

Your initial consultation: When more really means more

Laser Eye Surgery deals with one of the most complex organs in the body and one of our most valued senses. Rightly so, you may worry about what is the best option for surgery and have you chosen the right clinic to perform your treatment. There are so many fancy named treatments that don’t mean anything, technologies that don’t do anything, and added extras that make little to no difference to your outcome (except for the cost). You’re probably confused about what… Read more

Our eyes are the packhorses of the modern world. We work at computers all day long, stare at our phones in between, watch TV when we get home, and all the while they take the strain — literally. What I’m talking about is digital eye strain. One of the main problems of digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome is that when using screens, we only blink around 5-10 times a minute — instead of the standard 15 times a minute. Because… 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

The Myopia Epidemic

Since the 1950’s, when researchers first started recording instances of myopia or shortsightedness, the condition has increased at a tremendous rate almost uniformly around the world. It’s accelerating too: myopia among young people has doubled within a single generation, and it’s expected to, by some estimates, affect one-third of the world’s population — 2.5 billion people — by 2020. To understand why this is, let me ask you a question: Look in any direction as far as you can, and tell me,… 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

SMILE vs LASIK: What’s the difference?

Chances are it’s happened to you. You asked a friend to recommend you a film, and without hesitation, they came out with a name you didn’t recognise; one they claim is up there with the best of the year — a “must see” that they guarantee you will love. In fact, they were sitting on the edge of their seat throughout the whole thing. And when the twist at the end came, it was the last thing they ever expected. Before they gave… Read more

What’s it like working in and around Harley Street

For centuries, the closest most people got to Harley Street was knowing the name of an aristocrat, celebrity, or some other well-to-do person who’d allegedly received treatment there. Since the 19th century, the street has been known for providing world-class medical services to the mega-rich and ultra-elite classes. Florence Nightingale and Dr Edward Bach practised there, treating the likes of King George VI for his stammer and Stephen Hawking for motor neuron disease. Today, however, your just as likely to encounter a builder… Read more
