Do I qualify for Lasik?

That time has come around yet again. You need to get a shiny new pair of glasses. The trends change, you see a pair you just have to have, or, if you’re anything like the typical glasses wearer, you’ve scratched, snapped, or lost your current ones so you need a new pair ASAP. Naturally, as you go through all the hassle and add up the extra costs, it can get you thinking about what other options are available to you. Of course,… Read more

What prescription can Laser Eye Surgery correct?

When you go in for an eye exam at the opticians, the main thing you come out knowing is whether or not you need to wear glasses. But they also might mention a bit about exactly why you need glasses. With your little prescription card in your hand, they’ll explain how you have shortsightedness, longsightedness, astigmatism, or maybe a mixture of the above. Aside from that, there’s not much else you need to know. But if you’re not too keen on a lifetime of glasses or… Read more

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

Back then if you were afflicted by poor eyesight, you didn’t have much choice other than to deal with it. But it wasn’t all bad; you may even have been thought of as blessed and sought after for certain crafts like specialist coin engraving. In 2017, if you’ve got… Read more

Best time of year for Laser Eye Surgery

The 18th-century English theologian John Trusler once said, there’s “no time like the present, a thousand unforeseen circumstances may interrupt you at a future time”. I don’t know about you, but when I hear such things I feel like the literary greats and wise philosophers of yesteryears had a window right into 21st-century life. And even more eerily, directly into my own scattered mind. Dithering is my middle name. Most of my life is spent weighing up options, getting lost down endless tangents, and putting off… Read more
