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.
- LASIK eye surgery
- Trans-Epithelial Surface Treatment
- Lens replacement surgery
- ICL surgery (implantable contact lenses)
- Cataract surgery
- 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:
|Optical Express Cost (per eye)
|Optegra Cost (per eye)
|Optimax Cost (per eye)
|Centre for Sight Cost (per eye)
|LASIK / LASEK
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).

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.
Lisa, I hope you made the best decision because after all the research I've done on this issue I find Accuvision to be world-class in their treatments. They do charge more than other clinics but they offer more. No-one else does what they do right now in the UK or USA. The extra £350 you complain about is the difference between an average and an excellent outcome! Good luck.
Hi Phil, I have just read your comments on this site and just wanted to say that I was -8 in both eyes with around a -3 astigmatism giving a whopping -11 combined refractive error. I had LASIK treatment 2 days ago at Accuvision. They have some equipment called a Wavefront Analyser (only equipment of its type in the country apparently) that they say has helped people like you in the past, it may be worth giving them a call.
Generally the cost seems to be around £3,600 for both eyes. But I think it varies depending on your vision. You pay more, but you definitely get the best treatment - after all it is your eyes! Go and see them at the clinic and have a consultation - you will know if it is the place as soon as you walk through the door and meet the people. Good Luck
Booked into Accuvision for an assessment next Monday the 20th Jan. Chose these as they have the best rating, have Wavefront Technology and look a proffesional set up. Is anyone aware of other clinics that offer Wavefront? as Accuvision look expensive, although I am prepared to pay for the best treatment. I believe that the Birkdale Clinic may do, any experiences here?
I am booked in for my initial consultation on 10th February 2003 and if all goes well, I shall book in for the operation as soon as I can be fitted in. I am just a bit concerned about the fact that the person who took my call, was abrupt, unfriendly and not at all helpful. She didn't even want to do any more than take my number initially and have someone call me back. Then she seemed to change her mind and said "wait a moment" - yelled down the line in an irritated fashion. She was even shorter with me as she made me repeat everything I said, right down to my postcode! Having read the rave reviews on this site, I am hoping that mine was a one off so far as dodgy encounters go, with the staff of Accuvision. Hope the rest of the set up is more professional though. I shall post again when I have seen them and made up my mind about the operation.
I had my consultation a week ago, and my surgery is booked for a week today. My left eye is -9.75, and my right is -3.00 with an astigmatism of -4.5. Given how rubbish my eyes are, and having had a consultation elsewhere for comparison, I'm happy paying a premium for Accuvison thoroughness. Vikash checked everything, including a measurement of my pupils, and corneal thickness around the edge of my astigmatic eye, not just the centre. Darius's interest and input throughout also gave me confidence. All the risks were explained, and no pressure applied. I just hope I'll be giving 5 stars in a couple of weeks time!
I have just had my initial assessment with Vik at Accuvision. I found the service I got there superb, Vik was very honest, straight to the point but also understood that this is a huge decision (my sight is -8 and -8,5 and I am only 25) to make and appeared very compassionate. The technology they use is very impressive and the tests they perform very thorough. Apparently my case falls in the 20% or so patients that they treat who are "untreatable" elsewhere. In fact, Vic was so confident of the quality of the treatment at Accuvison that he challenged me to go elsewhere and assess the treatment in other clinics. I am going to take him up on this offer, and will report back when I have seen other clinics...At the moment, I am very satisfied with Accuvision, although they a little more expensive, based on the knowledgeable staff, technology used and general feel of the place, I would go with them...but we shall wait and see
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.
I have just had a very thorough and professional consultation with Accuvision and having also been to Ultralase I would say that there is no comparison - Accuvision is far more comprehensive. One question though: I have -7.5 and -8 with a -1.25 astigmatism and thin corneas and have been quoted £5000. I was expecting £4000 but definitely not %000. Judging some of the other comments on this site for people with my sort of vision this still seems high. Anyone else been quoted such a high amount?
