Staff Blog: I Can See Clearly Now.......

It’s a couple of weeks without riding for me I’m afraid. After 24 years of being a ‘specy-four-eyes’ I’ve taken  the plunge and had lazer eye surgery. You might wonder why I’m writing about this on my blog and how it relates to my riding the Fazer8, well if you don’t wear glasses you won’t appreciate what it’s like and...

Radial Keratotomy

Had this done by hand surgery, not laser!! about 20 years ago, I think!! They eyeball is cut about 8 times, incisions, to reshape it. Had both eyes done, one eye at a time, and one eye had to have it done twice, more cuts!! Was done in London, Mr William Jory, London Centre for Refractive Surgery! and was successful! Best thing I have ever done. Things have moved on since then and it all seems to be done by laser now! Have tremendous admiration for the surgeon that did the work, you can't turn with a hangover or a shakey hand! Have had no problems whatsoever!

Yes, contacts..... mentioned below are my solution to being a tad short-sighted. I use daily disposables but don't wear them unless I'm riding or at the gym. The thing that decided me was dropping a pair of spec's and treading on them while putting on a crash helmet. Focus Dailies are great, no solutions to muck about with so less chance of an infection and very comfortable too.

As a spectacles wearer, I found the solution to the fiddly task of sliding my specs into the visor opening was to buy a flip-front helmet.  With the front up, it slips over the side-arms of my glasses easily.  Oh, and I have a phobia about objects near to my eyes - Eddy998's description of pre-leser correction almost made me pass out!  So I'll stick to specs, thanks.

Try a Shark Vision-R

The edge of the padding round the visor has a little removable section on each side. Makes it much easier to slide specs in without gouging yourself. Some other modern Shark lids probably have this feature too.

vision r the cheaper way

As ClaretEverywhere I too have Vision R by Shark and am as you elegantly put it 'four eyes' the removable pads are a godsend and for any 'four eyed' biker I highly recommended this as a less painful solution.
