How Shinagawa Saved Luis Nuguid’s Vision With Cataract Surgery

When it comes to health, early detection of certain conditions is always better.

That was the case for 63-year-old Luis Nuguid, father of influencers Nina and Aggy, as his eyesight relished the benefits of having early detection of Cataracts on both his eyes.

With the eye experts of Shinagawa at the helm, Luis’ eyes were in safe hands.

“It’s a good thing Shinagawa was able to detect my Cataracts early because there’s a chance they can thicken over time,” shared Luis.

Initially, Nina and Aggy were seeking LASIK for Luis as his eyesight was getting more blurry but after in-depth and advanced eye exams, it was revealed that the older Nuguid had Cataracts on both his eyes, causing the need for surgery.

“I was supposed to have LASIK but instead, I have Cataract on both eyes. Cataract Surgery was the one I needed and I had it. It felt good. I now have clear eyesight again!”

With the proper diagnosis and plan, Luis still got his wish. He now has a brighter vision after a highly-successful Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery at Shinagawa on both his eyes.

Nina and Aggy expressed their joy after seeing their father enjoying his brand new sharp vision.

“Everything went well with our dad’s Cataract surgery for both his eyes at Shinagawa. We can tell that everything went well. He now has no problems with his eyes, no complications, no side effects and nothing bad happened,” said Nina.

“Believe it or not, his vision is now 20/15. His vision now is even clearer than the normal 20/20. He can now drive better, cook and watch TV. He’s doing all things more comfortably again,” shared Aggy.

The sisters then pointed out the differences with Shinagawa’s Premium Cataract Surgery and the reasons why their dad is now having the luxury of seeing the world better again.

“We’re really impressed with Shinagawa’s advanced technology, especially the machine (Catalys) used for our dad’s Cataract surgery. It took only less 30 minutes for the whole process already with no downtime. Shinagawa’s Premier Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery is more advanced than the traditional one as it is even safer and accurate, plus it is bladeless,” added the sisters.

After what their dad experienced, the sisters would want others to have the same gift as well that’s why they dropped a simple tip.

“If you have parents, Lolo, Lola, auntie, Tito, or even yourself, want to have a normal and brighter vision, we highly-recommend Shinagawa.”

A man of few words, Luis was still able to squeeze in some to express just how he feels with his bright eyesight.

“It felt good. I now have clear eyesight again!” expressed Luis.

5 Ways Sleep Deprivation Wrecks Your Skin | Shinagawa Aesthetics Blog

5 Ways Sleep Deprivation Wrecks Your Skin

“You got no rules, to be fabulous and gorgeous.” There are no rules for you to be pretty but abusing your skin by sleep deprivation can result in a bad effect your skin.
Here are five reasons why lack of sleep can have long term damage to your skin.

1. Can make you look older
When you sleep, your body recharges and your skin as well. Skin cells have time to repair themselves from daily damage, but when you are sleep deprived, your skin will not be able to heal itself and may increase your skin’s aging process.
2. Can cause breakouts
Stress hormone level naturally drops at night. Disrupting a good sleep cycle can cause oil glands to stimulate continuously, which can make you more likely to have acne breakouts.
3. Can cause dark circles
Having a dark circle is one of the common effects of sleep deprivation. Often accompanied by bags, dark circles can make you appear older than you are.
4. Can cause dull skin
Not having a good quality of sleep can increase your stress hormone level which triggers inflammation. Inflammation breaks down the proteins in the skin that keep skin smooth and radiant, in other words, it will lead your skin to have a dull complexion.
5. Can make your skin dry
Sleeping can rebalance the body’s hydration and helps to smooth out wrinkles in the skin. If you miss out on sleep it can also affect the moisture levels in your skin and lower your complexion’s PH level. This imbalance causes your skin to not produce the moisture it so desperately needs, leading to drier skin.

Getting enough sleep hours is very important. With the right Skin Rejuvenation treatments, improvements on the skin and physical appearance will no longer be difficult to achieve. There is a wide variety of skin treatment you can choose at Shinagawa that will surely bring youthful feels for you.

Key Precautions To Take After LASIK | Shinagawa Lasik & Aesthetics

Key Precautions To Take After LASIK

Just like other surgeries and medical procedures, following the doctor’s orders, and necessary instructions are significant in LASIK to avoid any complications and have a successful process.

As you may know, the recovery time for LASIK is drastically quicker compared to other surgeries. However, to make that possible, a patient also needs to do its part well for things to go right as it should be. Post-operation care is important and required to obtain expected outcomes.

With that, here are the important precautions after LASIK that you should strictly comply with for proper healing to be ensured:

1. Take a much-needed nap the soonest after LASIK – Automatically, a LASIK patient will be required to take an immediate rest and sleep for a few hours after the surgery as sleeping will radically reduce the natural discomfort and speed up the recovery.

2. Wear protective eye shields – Right after LASIK, you will be provided a protective eye shield and you should wear that, accordingly. It is essential for you to wear the provided shields, even when sleeping, for the first few days after the surgery to protect your eyes from infection and you from rubbing them to avoid disruption of the corneal flap.

3. Wear sunglasses – Since your eyes are expected to be extra sensitive to sunlight, it’s also important for you to make sure you wear sunglasses when you go out for at least a week after LASIK. Exposure to UV Rays makes your eyes susceptible to scarring or regression.

4. Take medications as prescribed – You will also be provided various eye drops that you would need to apply in a timely manner as well as medicines to help ease the discomfort and fast-track the recovery. The prescribed medications are there to help you prevent infection and irritation, and reduce inflammation.

5. Don’t rub your eyes – It’s going to be tempting and it’s tough to put your hands off of your eyes but you have to. As mentioned, the protective eye shields are there because you simply cannot touch your eyes after LASIK. If you touch and rub your eyes, there’s a chance that the corneal flap created in the procedure might be displaced, leading to possible complications. You will be strongly advised to avoid rubbing your eyes for a month after LASIK.

6. Avoid makeup – For girls, it’s difficult to not have makeup for a prolonged stretch but if you happen to have LASIK, you should refrain from wearing makeup for at least a week, except the eye area, after your procedure. Applying makeup in your face, especially around your eye area, creates a risk of accidental injury to your corneal flap or infection from contaminated makeup products. Eye makeup should be allowed a month after LASIK.

7. Avoid strenuous exercised and activities – Any physical and strenuous sports or activities are strictly prohibited for a month after LASIK for obvious reasons. You will know from your post-operation checkups when you can be cleared for more physical activities.

8. Get in touch with your doctor right away if you experience any of these – Constant pain and irritation in the eye, prolonged body sensation, or persistent burning and tearing.

At Shinagawa, you will be oriented properly prior to your LASIK to make sure that everything will be done to achieve the excellent results that are expected from the procedure.
