Biography
Dr Goran Helgason graduated from Gothenburg University, Sweden in 1984. He became a Consultant Ophthalmologist in 1991 specialising in anterior segment eye surgery. In 1996 he joined Medocular Eye Clinics, one of Sweden’s best refractive surgery practices. Dr Helgason has written numerous peer reviewed papers and presented his work at the most prestigious Ophthalmic conferences all over the World. He is also an International course instructor and medical advisor for STAAR Surgical, a leading manufacturer of ICL lenses. Dr Helgason is a big advocate of ICL lenses, so much so that he chose to have Implantable Contact Lenses himself.

“After years of implanting ICLs into the eyes of my patients, I became awkward talking to them about vision correction while wearing spectacles myself. Gradually, my patients convinced me that the ICL works so well that I thought: Why shouldn’t I use it for myself, even with only low myopia? In summer 2004 I had bilateral surgery which only took 30 minutes and went perfectly. I didn’t feel anything. The very next day I was back to work. I am thrilled with the result. As a surgeon, I rely on an excellent quality of vision in my daily work. My sight now is even better than I expected.”

All the staff at the AVC treatment centre went out of their way to make me feel relaxed on the days of my treatment

The service I received was very good and would be happy to recommend AVC. I have been given the gift of sight that has opened a whole new world being able to see all the time is like a miracle. Thank you.

My Treatment has been perfect from start to finish. I have no negative comments to make on any aspect of my case.

Deciding on CLE surgery is a serious procedure and it was very important for me to feel I was in good hands from the very start. From the first telephone enquiries up until surgery and post-surgery, I really could not find fault with the services provided by AVC (compared to the somewhat patronising attitude of the practitioners in my own country of residence!).The staff are always polite and concerned and also very patient in answering any questions you may have.The operation itself is surprisingly rapid, the only uncomfortable aspect being the very bright op light.Any other feelings of discomfort were soon banished by Pawel and his choccy-bikkies!

I cannot praise enough the level of service and care received from the staff at both Harley Street and Colindale.The amazing results are life changing for me, and although I was extremely nervous at both appointments, I would do it again! There are not enough words to describe the feeling of waking up and being able to see without reaching for my specs!I have no ideas on how to improve on an excellent professional service.

My first inquiry to AVC was very tentative, but the reassuring and informative manner in which I was dealt with meant that I was comfortable enough to move on from that. At each subsequent stage – consultation, discussion of options, decision to proceed, preparation beforehand and actual operations, I was treated as someone very important and special to all AVC staff.The bespoke treatment certainly lived up to its name.Another vital aspect of the service is that at no stage did I feel under pressure to make any decision outside my comfort zone.I cannot describe what a difference CLE has made to me – yes life was good with specs, but now it is so much better!
