Tags : 

I had the immeasurable pleasure of examining my maternal great aunt Martha’s eyes at her own home recently and learned a bit of where I came from. It all started when my great grandfather, his wife and houseful of six children were plunged into poverty at three o’clock one morning. The comment was made about

We’re increasing our opening hours – finally

In our heart of hearts, we have known for some time that opticians really need to be open when our patients are not working, but in uniquely human form, sub-consciously we did quite a lot to put this off.

Why is my child’s squint worse since wearing glasses? Accommodative esotropias and the mechanism behind them.

This question and the question, ‘Will glasses fix the turn in my child’s eye?’ are two of the most common questions I get in practice. The hospital does a fantastic job, but often we can fill in a few gaps regarding young children’s care. Before we can understand why it goes wrong, often it is helpful to get

Doing more for our patients with Autism

  Following a recent review of optometric care of our patients with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), we found out a couple of really interesting things. Patients with ASD are more than 50% less likely to report for an eye examination, therefore they are much more likely to have an on diagnosed eye condition. The reasons that these patients are not accessing

“Andrew, have I got Kerry Katona’s ?”

    What is Keratoconus anyway? I could write for about three days on what keratoconus is and how it affects people but in short, it is a condition which affects the cornea (the clear structure that lies over the pupil and iris). The cornea acts as the most powerful lens in the eye and
