96% of patients have ReLEx SMILE or LASIK surgery.

ReLEx SMILE is a new, minimally-invasive laser eye treatment pioneered at the London Vision Clinic. A small percentage of patients opt for PRK/LASEK.

All laser eye treatments essentially do the same thing: they use extremely precise lasers to reshape the cornea. This subtly changes the way light enters the eye, to ensure clear, sharp vision.

When performed by expert surgeons, Laser Eye Surgery is safe, quick and painless. It takes just 15 – 20 minutes, and the vast majority of patients are ready to return to work within 24 hours.

Laser Eye Surgery for ageing eyes

Everyone’s vision deteriorates as they get older. At the London Vision Clinic, we’ve developed a revolutionary Laser Eye Surgery treatment called Laser Blended Vision to address this issue.

Laser Blended Vision can significantly reduce, or even eliminate, the need for reading glasses for many years. Read more about Laser Blended Vision.

ReLEx SMILE – the new ‘keyhole’ laser eye surgery

Professor Reinstein and his team were instrumental to the development of ReLEx SMILE — a new ‘flap-less’ procedure, which marks the next generation in Laser Eye Surgery. Thanks to SMILE, we are now capable of treating even higher prescriptions than previously deemed possible. The procedure is even suitable for many patients with thinner corneas, drier eyes, or contact lens intolerance.

What is ReLEx SMILE?

Laser Eye Surgery for very high prescriptions

Astigmatism Treatments

Many clinics will tell you that very high prescriptions require synthetic lens implants. But at the London Vision Clinic we’ve developed safe, highly effective laser surgery techniques for such cases.

This is largely down to our cutting edge assessment tools. For example, we’re one of just a handful of clinics to use the world’s most accurate corneal scanner, the Artemis™, which was co-invented by Professor Dan Reinstein.

Short-sighted and long-sighted patients

In short-sightedness (myopia), the cornea is more curved than it should be. That means it focuses light just in front of retina, creating a blurry image. If your cornea is flatter than it should be, the light focuses just behind the retina, causing long-sightedness, or hyperopia.

Short and long sight are both easily solved with Laser Eye Surgery. We’ve also developed a pioneering treatment for even extreme short sight: find out more about ReLEx SMILE.

Astigmatism treatments

Astigmatism is a condition that affects the shape of your eye. You may well have heard that Laser Eye Surgery is no good for astigmatism. However, this is a common misconception.

Here at the London Vision Clinic, we’ve been successfully treating astigmatic patients for many years. Naturally, some cases are more complex than others, but our success rate is extremely high.
