We can treat 98% of the patients who contact us
Even if another Laser Eye Surgery clinic has turned you away, don’t assume you’re unsuitable for Laser Eye 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 the turnover of such Laser Eye Surgery clinics and keeps their costs down.
But here at London Vision Clinic, 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 Laser Eye 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 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 such as PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision and ReLEx SMILE, rarely available elsewhere.
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 two reasons below. At the London Vision Clinic, both are false.
‘Laser Eye 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 Insight 100™ 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 Insight 100™.
This means we can map each individual layer of your cornea to within one micron—that’s 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 Eye Surgery can’t treat ageing eyes.’
Wrong again – at least, at the London Vision Clinic. We’ve developed a unique technique called PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, which has already helped over 1000 patients discard their reading glasses.
In PRESBYOND® 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 Laser Eye Surgery 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 PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision patients see perfectly for years and many for the rest of their lives.
