The needs of each patient dictate the way we employ our Laser Eye Surgery technology.
No two eyes are exactly the same, so our first task is to make sure we understand the finest details of your eyes. A crucial part of this process is using the best technology available to us.
Some Laser Eye Surgery clinics still work with relatively basic and generic measurements, such as your lens prescription and wavefront measurements. We don’t believe this is a good enough basis from which to provide you with world-class Laser Eye Surgery. Instead, based on years of pioneering ophthalmic research and our thoroughly comprehensive screening process, we create individual eye treatment plans tailored precisely to each of your very unique eyes.Are you suitable?

Our laser eye surgeons don’t just train with specialist technology–they help design it.
London Vision Clinic are the proud owners of one of the world’s only Artemis™ scanners. The Artemis™—developed as a result of ophthalmic research by Professor Dan Reinstein and a select team of LASIK experts—is the most accurate corneal scanner in the world. It’s deployment has greatly enhanced patient safety and refractive outcomes across the Laser Eye Surgery industry.
The Artemis™ is well known for its hugely superior imaging and micro-biometric capabilities. This enables us to confidently operate on patients who would have otherwise been rejected as suspect Keratoconus.
In the UK, the Artemis is only available at the London Vision Clinic.
Carl Zeiss Meditec MEL 90 Excimer laser
The Zeiss MEL 90 Excimer laser offers incredibly accurate, auto-stabilised calibrated laser energy delivery. Zeiss was the first laser manufacturer to produce closed-loop energy stabilisation–the patented method of energy stabilisation used by the MEL 90.
This gives it the fastest response time of any laser, without the need for frequent user calibration.
Professor Reinstein was part of the Zeiss team that developed the MEL80 and now the MEL90, which has proven to be the most accurate LASIK laser in the world (according to the rigorous US FDA trials)
Carl Zeiss Meditec WASCA High-resolution Wavefront Aberrometer
The Zeiss WASCA High-resolution Wavefront Aberrometer measures a number of points on your cornea, building a detailed picture of your eye’s surface. This helps us plan a fully custom-programmed treatment for each eye. At London Vision Clinic, we use the wavefront data to design an even more effective treatment. To our knowledge, we are the only Laser Eye Surgery clinic able to individually customise the way wavefront is programmed into the laser.
Artemis™ Ultrasound Scanner
The Artemis™ provides the most accurate corneal measurements in the world. Accurate to 1 micron (1/1000mm), it was the result of ophthalmic research by Prof. Reinstein and a select team of bioengineers from Cornell University, New York.
It remains the only system in the world that can fully map continuous surfaces inside the cornea.
Carl Zeiss Meditec VisuMax Femtosecond laser
The Carl Zeiss Meditec VisuMax, the latest (3rd) generation femtosecond laser, is more precise and energy-efficient than any other system. The VisuMax is also the only femtosecond laser that does not increase the pressure inside the eye and hence you’ll feel nothing during treatment. Because of its unique accuracy, the VisuMax is the only femtosecond laser that is suitable for the keyhole form of LASIK: ReLEx SMILE. Additional benefits include significantly reduced chance of sub-conjunctival haemorrhages—these are little red marks which can develop in the white of the eye when using older types of femtosecond technology and, although harmless, they are unsightly. The Carl Zeiss Visumax is used as standard in our normal treatment price.
The Procyon Pupillometer measures the size of your pupils in a range of lighting conditions. The data this helps to ensure that the treatment we carry out works seamlessly throughout the day and night, avoiding any issues with the dilation of the pupil and low light conditions.
Topography produces a shape ‘map’ of the front and back surfaces of your cornea, showing its varying curvatures. We use the Carl Zeiss Atlas, the Pentacam, and the Bausch & Lomb Orbscan II–all three possess particular strengths in certain aspects of corneal measurement, and are the most advanced instruments of their kind.
