What are the pros and cons: LASIK vs PRK/LASEK vs SMILE? [VIDEO]

So you’ve learned a little bit about Laser Eye Surgery and the incredible benefits it has to offer. You’ve got to get a clear picture of how it works: by removing tissue in the cornea and therefore permanently changing your eye’s focusing power. And after visiting various clinics and doing your research, you’ve discovered that despite the huge list of brand names of treatments — including UltraLASIK, Accu-wave LASIK, Custom LASIK, and Zyoptix — there are actually only three main treatment types,… Read more

Can I Have Laser Eye Surgery If…? And Other Suitability Questions

Head down the high street, walk into a Laser Eye Surgery provider, and ask a question, say ‘Can I have the treatment if I’m over 60? And you’ll get one answer. But hop in your car and go to a private or independent clinic and ask them the same question, and you get a totally different one. What’s going on here? Surely if you’re ineligible at one clinic you’re ineligible at them all, and vice versa, right? Well, this is often the case… Read more

ReLEx SMILE: The latest innovation in Laser Eye Surgery

If you look at pretty much every field of surgery — cosmetic, restorative, dental, vascular — you’ll notice a few common trends.

These developments are revolutionising healthcare. And they’re all thanks to a new approach that replaces traditionally invasive, and often risky, open surgery techniques.

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.

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

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

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

Fix Digital Eye Strain Now to Keep Your Vision

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
