Advanced Vision Care (AVC), based on Harley Street, is a world leader in laser eye surgery with prices starting from £2150 per eye
History Of Advanvced Vision Care
Advanced Vision Care is an independent eye clinic located on London’s Harley Street, founded in 2003.
Refractive expert Dr. Pillai, who has spent over 20 years specialising in ophthalmic treatments, established the clinic to offer a comprehensive array of eye treatments. Dr. Pillai is himself a highly experienced refractive surgeon, and was the one of the UK’s first consultants to perform bilateral laser eye surgery on the same day. Drawing upon this success and experience, Dr. Pillai founded the Advanced Vision Care clinic to provide patients with outstanding laser eye technology, along with a high level of patient care.
Today, patients can obtain treatments they may not be able to receive otherwise, such as laser treatment for individuals with a high prescription. The Advanced Vision Care Clinic is also home to Europe’s only transparent laser theatre, and the UK’s only non-laser theatre.
AVC Technology & Treatments
Advanced Vision Care offers a number of popular laser corrective treatments, such as LASIK and LASEK, along with cataract surgery and lens exchange procedures.
To provide this in a way that’s safe and effective, the clinic has invested in state-of-the-art technology, such as the Zywave Aberrometer from Bausch & Lomb, a device used in laser treatment to map the eyes of a patient undergoing wavefront laser eye surgery. This machine measures the aberrations of the eye to create the perfect map for the laser and does so with the utmost precision, so that your surgeon is able to programme the laser to effectively target refractive errors.
The Advanced Control Eye (ACE) Tracking System is another device used in laser eye surgery; with this machine, a 3D tracker guides the laser, and should there be too much movement, it will stop the laser right away.
When it comes to the laser surgery itself, the corneal flap is created using an Intralase femtosecond laser, which is one of the safest possible options. This means there is not only improved precision, but also that recovery time is better and the results are improved. The Technolas Z100 Laser by Bausch & Lomb is considered to be the best possible excmier laser, and this is used in conjunction with the personalized map to give patients optimal visual improvement through corrective laser surgery.

Cost & Finance Options
Vision correction is an expensive procedure, and so many patients look for ways to make the treatment more affordable.
Rather than compromise the quality of care you receive, it’s wise to enquire about payment plans to manage the cost and obtain the best possible treatment. At Advanced Vision Care, there is interest free financing available, with flexible payment options to suit your needs. They have also partnered with top health insurance providers so that even more people are able to enjoy life with 20/20 vision, free from contacts and eyeglasses. All the treatment fees are inclusive and fixed too, helping you to effectively budget for the cost of undergoing laser eye surgery.
A £125 deductible deposit is required for both LASKI and LASEK, while all other treatments require a deposit of £175.
