Is laser eye surgery for you? (Almost certainly.)

We can treat 98% of the patients who contact us

Even if another laser eye surgery has turned you away, don’t assume you’re unsuitable for laser surgery treatment. Some clinics turn away as many as 20% of potential patients, but often this is because they don’t have the technology or the expertise available to treat the patient safely –not because the patient is unsuitable. Sticking to simpler cases also increases turnover, and keeps costs down.

But our number one priority is you, not profit margins. And our world-class expertise means we can treat 98% of people who contact us. Even those very high prescriptions.

What makes us different?

Most importantly, our surgeons are among the finest in the world, and have specialised in laser eye surgery for many years. On top of this, we only use the world’s most advanced measuring and surgical equipment.

We analyse your eyes in exquisite detail, and customise treatments for each individual eye. Plus, we offer highly specialised treatments, rarely available elsewhere.

The best possible treatment for you and your vision.

London Vision Clinic: independently rated as Excellent.

After having been told by another eye clinic that I was not suitable for surgery, I approached the LVC and they very professionally answered all my questions. LVC have transformed by life – I can even read telephone directories! Amazing results, I would recommend to anyone. Thank you.”

Myths about laser eye surgery

You may have heard, perhaps from another clinic, that you’re unsuitable for laser eye surgery for one of the reasons below. Both are false.

‘Laser surgery cannot treat very high prescriptions.’

Wrong. We’ve developed High Profile treatments specifically for very high prescriptions. These depend on our uniquely rigorous screening process, in which we examine your eyes at a level of detail most other clinics simply cannot match.

Our founder, Professor Reinstein, co-invented the revolutionary Artemis™ scanner – the most accurate corneal scanner in the world. Worldwide, we’re one of just a handful of laser eye surgery clinics with access to an Artemis™.

This means we can map each individual layer of your cornea to within one micron: 1,000th of a millimetre. This is critical for very high prescriptions, as it ensures we stay well within safety parameters. By mapping the cornea so microscopically, we can plan the safest and most effective treatment possible.

‘Laser surgery can’t treat ageing eyes.’

Wrong again – at least, at the London Vision Clinic. We’ve developed a unique technique called Laser Blended Vision, which has already helped over 1000 patients discard their reading glasses.

In Laser Blended Vision, one eye is adjusted to see mostly at distance, and a little up close. The other is adjusted to see mostly up close, and a little at distance. Your brain combines the two images, allowing you to see both near and far, without glasses or contact lenses.

This treatment is suitable for 97% of patients. It’s much easier to adapt to than traditional mono-vision – and doesn’t compromise your intermediate vision in the same way. And it’s much less invasive – and therefore safer – than implantable contact lenses (IOLs).

Of course, everyone’s eyes continue to age. But any regression in your vision is usually small, and develops very slowly. Most of our Laser Blended Vision patients see perfectly for years, and many for the rest of their lives.
