Laser eye treatment is the most popular elective procedure in the world. There are two best forms of laser eye treatment: LASIK (the most common) and PRK/LASEK. Both laser eye treatments use extremely precise lasers to reshape the cornea. This is the best way to correct vision, because the shape of the cornea determines the way light enters the eye.
Laser eye treatment removes small, very precise amounts of corneal tissue to subtly adjust the way light enters the eye, of painlessly transforming vision to ensure best quality in minutes. If your cornea is more curved than it should be, it bends (refracts) the light so that it focuses just in front of the cornea. This is known as short-sightedness, or myopia. If the cornea is flatter than it should be, the light converges just behind the cornea, causing long-sightedness, or hyperopia.
Of course, there are many other conditions that affect our vision, such as astigmatism or simply the effects of ageing (presbyopia). You may well have heard that these and other conditions are beyond the power of laser eye treatment. However, while many clinics refuse patients with such conditions, the London Vision Clinic has been treating them successfully for many years.
The treatment is very quick and pain free and I would urge anyone contemplating eye surgery to contact the London Vision Clinic and arrange for a consultation. For most of my life I have had to put up with high prescription glasses. Now I can participate in activities that I never would have dreamed of previously before surgery.”
We have developed a revolutionary treatment called Laser Blended Vision that addresses vision problems caused by the natural ageing process. This unique laser eye treatment can significantly reduce, or even eliminate, the need for reading glasses for many years. Read more about Laser Blended Vision.
Many clinics resort to surgically implanted synthetic lenses to treat very high prescriptions. The London Vision Clinic has pioneered safe methods for using laser eye surgery in such cases. This is largely thanks to our uniquely comprehensive and accurate assessment tools, which mean we can treat very high prescriptions in complete confidence. Read more about High Profile treatments.
