1. Review of AccuVision Laser Eye Clinic
Established in 2001, AccuVision is a popular destination for people seeking quality, affordable laser eye surgery. This clinic currently operates in five cities nationwide: London, Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol and Newcastle, and has performed over 40,000 treatments and counting.
What did independent inspectors find? According to the CQC’s latest report, there were no complaints between August 2016 and September 2017 from 1,011 refractive eye procedures carried out at AccuVision.
Is there anything else I should know? Most of the eye surgeons on our site enjoy five-star ratings, and the same is true for AccuVision. But it’s worth noting we only have 10 reviews for Dr Prashant Jindal.
Patients always want to find an ophthalmologist they feel comfortable with. That’s why it’s always a good idea to do your own research by trying to meet with your surgeon at an initial consultation, and many clinics offer these for free.

3. AccuVision Laser Eye Clinic Prices
AccuVision’s prices are reasonable rates in laser eye surgery. On average, 800 patients told Lasik Eyes they paid £1,200 (per eye) for laser eye surgery, and £3,615 (per eye) for lens replacement surgery (including cataract surgery) – few clinics have lower starting prices.
AccuVision doesn’t publish a fixed price list, but here are the costs you can expect for the most popular eye surgeries:
- Consultation Price: Free for initial consultation
- LASIK Price: Average cost £2,400 for both eyes
- Trans-Epi Price: Average cost £2,400 for both eyes
- C3R Treatment Price: Average cost £2,000 per eye
Here’s how these prices compare to the eye surgery quotes offered by other clinics:
|Treatment||Optical Express Cost (per eye)||Optegra Cost (per eye)||Optimax Cost (per eye)||Centre for Sight Cost (per eye)|
|LASIK / LASEK||From £595||£1,795||£1,695||£2,400|
|Cataract Surgery||From £3,195||£2,495||£2,995||From £3,150|
|ICL Surgery||From £3,395||£3,495||£2,495||£3,615|
Eye surgery isn’t an insignificant cost for most people. That’s why AccuVision offers a 10 month finance option, which lets you spread the costs of surgery after the initial deposit into smaller monthly fees. You will need to pass a credit check with Hitachi Capital to gain approval for this payment plan.
That said, most clinics provide finance plans for much longer – up to three years, and also team up with health insurers who may cover at least some of the costs of the surgery (which AccuVision doesn’t).

I had taken a long time to come to a decision to undergo Laser Surgery. I had a very high prescription (-10) and never believed I could get rid of the visual aids. But the surgery at ACCUVISION was highly successful and now I have close to 20/20 vision. Cannot thank Dr Manu Matthew, Vikash and the entire team at Accuvion enough.
The surgery was almost painless and was over in about 10 mins.I have dry eyes, halo effect and believe my near vision is not that clear but I have been told that this will settle down in the next few months.
Overall I am very happy that I under went this procedure and will definitely recommend it to everyone with a high prescription as it can be totally life changing.
My first visit to Accuvision was 6 years ago after being fed up of my glasses. At the time I was disappointed as they suggested it was safer for me to wait longer until my prescription had stabilised for long enough to get as much benefit from the surgery as possible. Having finally returned there last year I was treated in both eyes and the last 12 months have been a revelation. The whole process was as comfortable and caring as I could have expected and I felt that their honesty and patience made me feel very at ease. The knowledge of the staff and their calmness through all my crazy questions was pretty impressive! I was a – 5 previously in both eyes wearing contacts only occasionally as I hated the things – just had my yearly check up showing more than 20/20 vision! It has honestly changed so much in my life and I cannot recommend the guys at Accuvision enough, it’s a smaller than high street chain operation but more professional than I had seen when I went for consultations at the other clinics. I was even looked after by the same optician I saw initially all those years ago. My fiancé is booked in for hers next month as well so we have great faith in them.
I had the laser procedure carried out as I had astigmatism. My husband had laser eye surgery twelve years ago at Accuvision, and is still enjoying excellent vision, I could not have been happier with the results and aftercare. My vision is perfect, a very well managed clinic, with a very capable team of surgeons and
Accuvision made me feel completely comfortable at the initial consultation, answering all of my questions and fears. On the day of the surgery I was very nervous but the clinical team were excellent in helping me relax and the procedure was very quick and painless. As expected my eyes were quite sore for a few hours afterwards but when I awoke the next morning it was fantastic to be able to see properly. The after care was good and 1 year on my vision is excellent and I’ve almost forgotten what it’s like to have to wear contact lenses. I’d highly recommend this treatment and Accuvision to everyone.
I had laser eye surgery treatment on my eyes some 10 years ago because I was missing so much with my poor vision and didn’t like wearing glasses which caused me many headaches.
Immediately following the procedure, the results were amazing, I use the word ‘miracle’ because it was just that to me! My world changed for the better, as did my mood. I had never felt happier, it was like starting a new life.
Accuvision were fantastic from the beginning, reassuring me about all of my fears or doubts.They looked after me very well and I would recommend them to anyone, in fact my son is going to be the next lucky person to benefit from this procedure.
Thank you so much for changing my life!
After extensive research I found Accuvision came out top over all of the other clinics. I could not find a bad word said about them, simply because they are brilliant. I am 19 years old and underwent laser eye surgery on the 8th of July 2014 and could not be happier. I used to have +7.00 vision in one eye and +6.00 in the other and now I have 20/20 vision. Not to mention I had a turn in one eye which has now completely gone and cannot express how much of a change to my life this has been. I first wore glasses when I was 11 months old and I am thrilled to not have to depend on glasses or contact lenses any longer. Accuvision really take care of you and talk you through everything in the initial free consultation with no pressure whatsoever. I was encouraged to go home and think about it before making a decision, though my mind was made up. On surgery day they talked me through everything and reassured me when the surgery was actually taking place. It only takes around 5 minutes per eye and is a completely painless procedure. After being at the clinic for only an hour and a half I was able to go home, then I came back the next day for a check-up and as everything went perfectly, returned to work a couple of days after having the surgery. Over two months later I am extremely pleased with the result and the level of after-care provided. I cannot stress how much this has changed my life and if you are going to get laser eye surgery done, you should go with Accuvision.
I am 23 years old and everything was wrong with my eyesight before eye surgery at Accuvision. I had a prescription of +12.50 and -4.00 astigmatism in both eyes which meant that I had to rely on yearly contact lenses to see and work every day. Cleaning them all the time meant that they would break and I would have to keep replacing them and this was very frustrating.
My Uncle and Aunt had visited Accuvision a few years ago and received a great service and that is why they recommended I contact them for a consultation to see if anything could be done for me.
I went to see them in October last year and was very encouraged by what they said they might be able to do for me. I was hoping that I could move out of the very expensive yearly contact lenses and move down to monthlies or weeklies. There was no pressure during the consultation, it was all for me and about my vision, just trying to help me find a way to improve my vision.
Whatever I asked there was an answer for and what ever they did not know at the time they would find out for me. I re-visited them in June for the surgery having saved up for the treatment. They repeated many of the eye tests to check I was still suitable and then put me forward for surgery. I was very nervous but that was to be expected.
Both my eyes were done at the same time and I could feel the effects straight away. There was no pain, it took about 10 minutes and I was out recovering. My eyes were a bit teary but after half an hour I could start reading things I could never have read before. When I left the clinic on the surgery day I went straight to a local shop to buy my favourite chocolate bar (Yorkie) but I could never see them before but this time I could pick it out straight away. I put drops in my eyes religously when I got home, as I was told to do and I have never had dry eye since the surgery.
Many of my friends had treatment elsewhere and have suffered from dry eye for a long time after. My family and friends all know my experience and they are all keen to visit Accuvision to see what can be done for them.
My work life has also changed in the last 3 months since surgery. Being a contractor I find myself in dirty dark places like lofts. Before surgery I found it very difficult to operate in these places and had to turn certain jobs down as I knew I would not be able to function properly in them and do the job with the yearly contacts. Now I can take a spare pair of dailies with me and just pop them in if I need to. My eyes do not get so tired and I am able to take on much more varied work as a result of the surgery. Nothing is holding me back. Infact over the last 3 months the laser eye surgery has already paid for itself. I can do so much more.
The day after the surgery I was walking from the house to the station and I could read number plates without glasses. When I got to the clinic the day after the surgery my eyesight was checked and instead of it being +8.00 as I was expecting, it was registered as +5.50 with no astigmatism. I went back a week later and it was still stable at +5.50 and then today for my 3 month check up I was registering +5.00 and could be discharged at the next visit.
I can only thank Accuvision for changing my vision and changing my future.
I was short-sighted which meant I had to rely on glasses and contact lenses to see clearly. I didn’t want to wear glasses any more as they affected me when I played sport, running or went out at night. I also couldn’t see when I was swimming. My eyes also became very dry when wearing contact lenses so in the end I could only wear them for a few hours in the evening and they were quite painful.
I was quite lucky as my sister had done all the research on laser eye surgery before me and had chosen Accuvision for her laser eye surgery, so I just came here for my assessment. The consultation was fine, every one was very friendly and I felt confident with the surgery and after-care I was going to receive. On the surgery day I was a little anxious but it was fine. There was just a moment when I felt a little pain but it was over in a second and it all went smoothly after that. The first day after treatment my eyes felt a bit dry but I went out all day and just put the drops in as I was told. It was really nice being able to see so well just a day after the surgery.
It’s now 3 months after my treatment and now I do not have to think about contact lenses or glasses, it’s much less effort or hassle. I do not have to worry about running in the rain in my glasses as that was always difficult and I can see when I swim.
I have recommended laser eye surgery to all my friends and would be happy to recommend Accuvision.
I had my procedure to correct my short sight and astigmatism in August 2014 and when I write this, in October 2014, it feels like I have never needed glasses or contact lenses! I am so glad I chose Accuvision as they were very thorough in consultation and at the time of my procedure I was very nervous and panicky but they were very patient and kind and got me through! I would gladly recommend Accuvision to anyone considering laser eye surgery.
Well worth it! Makes such an incredible difference, it’s worth going through the operation for. Takes a while to settle down (as I was a -9.00 and -7.25) and get used to but to be able to do everything unrestricted by glasses or contact lenses is incredible! Many thanks to all the team.
