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.

2. AccuVision Treatments

As well as common laser vision correction treatments – such as LASEK and LASIK with ultra-accurate Wavefront diagnostics – AccuVision also offers lens replacement surgery, including the UK’s most common surgical procedure: cataract surgery.

  1. LASIK eye surgery
  2. Trans-Epithelial Surface Treatment
  3. Lens replacement surgery
  4. ICL surgery (implantable contact lenses)
  5. Cataract surgery
  6. Amblyopia (lazy eye treatment)

So is it safe? AccuVision promises highly sophisticated, automated devices, with world-class Wavefront technology and the Alcon WaveLight EX500 Excimer laser. According to the clinic’s own study of 500 patients, everyone achieved at least driving standard vision following surgery (including repeat surgery).


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:

TreatmentOptical Express Cost (per eye)Optegra Cost (per eye)Optimax Cost (per eye)Centre for Sight Cost (per eye)
LASIK / LASEKFrom £595£1,795£1,695£2,400
Cataract SurgeryFrom £3,195£2,495£2,995From £3,150
ICL SurgeryFrom £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).

It also features as one of the best laser eye surgery clinics in the UK, as well as making our list of the best laser eye surgery in London for raving customer reviews about its professional staff.

I had treatment 2 days ago now and all is pretty good so far (I am writing this with no glasses). I am reserving final judgment for a couple of weeks while my eyes settle down. **Surgery day** The day of surgery was pretty busy (Mondays and Thursdays) with at least 4 others having the procedure done at similar times to me and lots of checking and rechecking eye measurements etc. Despite this, the staff were excellent and made me feel relaxed. The surgery itself was slightly painful and unnerving. My right eye went well and was glad to have the left eye complete too, only to find that after checking the pupil, I had to have the flap lifted and re-cleaned. As soon as the surgery was over I was able to see 20/20 which was a relief but I was hoping for better as my sight was better than this with glasses prior to the operation. My near sight was excellent but my distance vision was still a little blured. Vikesh confirmed this is as expected and that the eye will relax a little – fingers crossed. **Surgery day+1** I awoke early (thanks to my 2 year old son James) with what felt like a stuck contact lens (I did actually have contact lenses in to help the healing) – the drops provide soon sorted this. Then I read James a story! My first check up. Back with Vikesh again – he removed my protective lenses, confirmed that the flap had resealed itself and there was no signs of infection. As with the day before my shorted vision was excellent but my long distance vision is slightly blurry. The topography of my new eyes did look a little “hilly”. Vikesh tried to reassure me but being a bit of a synic I wonder if he only spreads good news… I’ll wait and see I went to work happily for the rest of the day with no head aches or concentration problems. **Surgery day+2** Short sight is excellent, Long sight is still poor or perhaps slightly worse – having difficulty seeing number plates at 20 yards and text on the TV across the room. Fingers crossed this improves. Not being able to rub or easily clean your eyes (I am not a good shot with the drops!) is a pain but I have no scratchiness or irritation. So much so I have to keep reminding myself to put in the supplied set of drops.

Could customers please indicate the cost of the laser treatment, so that prospective customers can get an idea of the range of prices. I know the price will be based upon individual case, however, if you give a rough indication of you prescription then people will get an idea.

For any one wanting info about Brett Halliday I found this on the website. pretty impressive I think Mr. Halliday trained at Oxford Eye Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital, London (senior registrar and lecturer). Appointed to consultant NHS post in Shrewsbury in 1990. He has been an independent consultant ophthalmologist since 1997. Mr. Halliday has published papers in peer reviewed journals on diagnosis of glaucoma, acuity after cataract surgery, lens power in cataract surgery, surgery of pterygium, refractive surgery including epikeratophakia and excimer laser contrast sensitivity, surgery for blepharospasm, corneal graft surgery, surgery for keratoconus, two editorials in British Medical Journal, two chapters in text books.

I am considering having laser eye surgery and need some advise. I live in the Yorkshire area and so contacted Ultralase in Leeds. What I cant understand is the price difference quoted for Wavefront surgery. £699 here and almost £1500 with Ultralase. This seems such a huge difference in price for what I assume is the same service. Any comments please. Also, can folks say the 'type' of surgery they have had. ie; Lasek, Lasik, Wavefront etc. And has anyone had surgery in Leeds and by what surgeon. I am trying to work through the confusion here and would genuinely appreciate an comments. Paul.........

*** So as to provide a balanced view this posting has been edited with comments received from Accuvision - No further correspondence or response will be allowed due to the time that has lapsed since the consultation Mr Tomlinson had with Accuvision back in 2009 - Thank you to Accuvision for their prompt response to this posting - Lasik-Eyes*** Posting made July 2012 by: Michael Francis Tomlinson I will give the following details of my experience at Accuvision. I contacted Accuvision in Solihull in June 2006 to find out if they could help me with my eyesight. I had lasik with Ultralase to both eyes in Dec' 2000 and had a huge starburst from light sources and ghosting from their surgery. I had a consultation during which Accuvision's optometrist asked me if I wanted to have a wavefront treatment to one eye to see if it improves my vision. We then saw their surgeon Brett Halliday who examined me and the data/scans and he said " The problem is your brain's forgotten what good quality vision is" and he said he would do a wavefront procedure to both eyes involving the cutting of new flaps. He sounded quite confident and gave NO WORD OF CAUTION WHATSOEVER AS TO THE OUTCOME so I decided to go ahead with surgery. This took place in Sep' 2006. The morning after surgery I was being driven back up to Solihull and still noticed exactly the same vision problems and I thought immediately that what they'd done had done nothing to sort out my problems. At initial followup appointments I was told by clinic manager Nick Dash not to worry as "It will get there". It never did. £2400 spent for nothing. I still saught a cure for my vision problems and in early 2007 I saw Sheraz Daya at The Centre for Sight in London. I had scans etc then he examined me. He informed me that I had striae/microfolds in both corneas and I was shocked to say the least as Accuvision made no mention of these at any time that I saw them. With second flaps having been cut he did not want to touch my eyes as it's bad enough with one flap present let alone two. He could not help me in any way. I subsequently found out that these striae/folds are a known cause of the exact vision problems that I have. I later saw Julian Stevens at Moorfields. He was horrified that Accuvision had cut second lasik flaps. He studied their data and told me Accuvision had cut their flaps deeper than the originals. but he couldn't help me either. I saw Prof' Dan Reinstein at The London Vision Clinic in early 2009 to find out if he could help. After many consultations which included ultrasound scans of my corneas he concluded that the striae/folds must be the cause of my vision problems. The ultrasound scans show irregularities in the outer flaps with the inner ones barely visible. I formally complained to Accuvision in 2009 about their treatment on me as the evidence points to them having carried out a completely wrong procedure that had no chance of working. I went to Accuvision in Solihull in June 2009 and had a meeting with clinic manager Nick Dash and medical director Chad Rostron. I showed them the ultrasound scans of my corneas and when I said their flaps were the inner ones they both immediately said their flaps had been cut superior (further out) to the first (Ultralase) ones. This was and is an outright LIE. The medical evidence points to the exact opposite of what they said. Julian Stevens and Ming Wang in the USA both e-mailed me to say that it is normal procedure for second flaps to be cut deeper and Mr Stevens verbal testimony is quite telling. I somehow managed not to go completely ballistic at being lied to by a couple of so called health professionals. Dash was looking very uncomfortable at this point and suggested to Rostron that he "should ring London".(Head Office).This was immediately dismissed by Rostron. They both sat there like a couple of spivs who'd got my money and didn't care about me having no benefit at all from what they'd done. I could have possibly had the original flaps lifted and smoothed back down to help my vision but Prof' Reinstein said this would be unwise with second flaps being present so not only did Accuvision perform a completely wrong op but what they did has prevented me from having a possible cure for my vision problems being carried out. Accuvision were in no way capable or qualified to help a post lasik complication case like me but ripped me off to the tune of £2400 for NOTHING. I would be fully prepared to repeat anything I've said about Accuvision under oath and would also take a polygraph test which Dash and Rostron would FAIL if they repeated their statement of which were their lasik flaps. I've had 6 more years of misery with poor quality vision as a result of what Accuvision did. I post this warning " SHOULD YOU TRUST YOUR EYES TO A CLINIC THAT LIES ". *** The following response has been provided by Accuvision** Despite Mr Tomlinson comments and opinions sought by a number of sources over a number of years he has failed to present a case with any sound legal recourse. Accuvision have helped facilitate this by providing scans and appropriate data promptly at every stage. Mr Tomlinson has admitted that he is no worse off visually than he was before the treatment at Accuvision but feels that he has not benefited either. Unfortunately no surgical outcome can be guaranteed, particularly with complex re-treatments. Mr Tomlinson has good vision as demonstrated by objective measurements in visual acuity and aberrometry (wavefront measurements) up until he has been under our care in 2009. These measurement are used as a standard throughout our specialist field of Refractive Surgery. The reported VISUAL symptoms are not consistent with the measurements that we have provided. The details of his clinical care and his scans have been forwarded to Mr. Tomlinson in order that he can see the outcome and to facilitate second opinions. He has subsequently sought the comments of other Clinicians, although these are contradictory to the Surgical events that have taken place. The comments he makes are inaccurate in many ways and are a mis-interpretation of the facts. ACCUVISION

My eyes were -3.0 and -2.75 with some astigmatism.

I checked out both Boots (in Reading) and Accuvision in Fulham, but felt much more confident with Accuvision. The consultation was very thorough (Darius was excellent) and I opted for Wavefront Guided LASIK.

I had the surgery just yesterday and can not heap enough praise on the staff. They keep you informed all the time as to what is going on, and were efficient and friendly.

Although the suction part is a bit scary and uncomfortable, the op was not as bad as I had expected. There was a very sweet Irish nurse who held my hand throughout and the laser part itself took only a few seconds.

Afterwards I was very sore and could hardly open my eyes for a few hours, but by the end of the first evening I could start to see fairly clearly!

This morning most of the pain has gone and my vision is astounding. There is still quite a lot of haziness, but that will pass apparently. I have been for the 24 hour post-op checkup (which Accuvision insist on to ensure that there is no sign of infection), and apparently my vision is 20/20.

My eyes look a mess (red blotches), but are improving all the time. I can’t believe that I am sitting here typing this just a day after surgery.

Yes Accuvision charge more than most, but then the Wavefront analysis is astounding. What price do you put on good vision? I couldn’t fault Accuvision for anything. It’s a first class service and I highly recommend them.

Dominic.

Hello there, I am thinking about having surgery done with Accuvision in Solihull. Is there anybody with experience of that clinic? Thanks

I had a consultation with Vik at Accuvision in March and am considering having LASIK in July or August. I have - 6 in both eyes with slight astigmatism, however my pupils when dilated are 7.5mm and 8.5mm. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has undergone LASIK (either successfully or unsuccessfully) with a pupil size of over 8mm. I am confident that the service offered by Accuvision is one of the best in the industry, but before biting the bullet would find it helpful to hear from others who have undergone the proceedure with similar prescription and pupil size!
