Very thorough, he answered all my questions.
Extremely knowledgeable and a calming presence
Great surgeon, his knowledge is astonishing
Good surgeon, has impeccable staff around him
I had my laser surgery at AVC last week and I'm delighted with the results. I was very nervous at my surgery but they offered me some calming medicine to help calm my nerves and one of the nurses, Gaya, was very lovely and reassuring with her calming voice throughout my surgery. Very pleased that I went to AVC!
He was great. He made sure I understood everything regarding the procedure and also made me feel comfortable to continue with it. I am glad to have had his as my consultant.
Dr. Pillai is very good and very experienced.
Due to complications I had to complete separate surgery on each eye, but Dr Ct Pillai made sure that everything went smoothly.
Experience has been great, Dr Pillai helped ease my concerns around the surgery.
Put me at ease during the before and during the surgery. Very friendly and approachable
I was apprehensive about having laser eye surgery. However the results were fantastic! I now have 20/20 vision! All the staff were professional and helpful with my many questions and concerns. To anyone debating whether to have laser treatment, I highly recommend Advanced Vision care and Mr Pillai!
Incredible experience, good customer service, excellent visual results
Great results and friendly staff
My initial consultation was thorough, treatment options talked through and explained well. The standard of care was very high throughout and the follow up consultations and support second to none. I would have no reservations about recommending AVC to anyone.
Overall a great experience and great results. I was recommended by a friend and I'm glad I went for it. They give you all the instructions and information beforehand so its stress free and simple
Good doctor, experienced and quick. My surgery only took a few minutes!
I had a laser procedure here about 3 months ago. Today was my quarterly check up and everything is going just swimmingly. Life without contacts is great and I've just given all my glasses away to charity. If you're looking for a safe place to have laser surgery, this is the place.
Im so glad i had lasic done here, its the best thing i did. my vision is splendid and the dr pillau was lovely. all the supporting staff were lovely and they really helped me when i kept calling asking if i was having a normal recovery. so patient with me, i cannot thank them enough for making me feel safe and looked after
I had my laser operation here about six months ago and waited deliberately before putting a review because i wanted to make sure it lasted. I can safely say that i'm still with 20.20 vision and i'm still very happy. i did have some dryness of my eyeballs but the documentation did already say this so i was not worried. it has gotten much better anyway with time and using the drops. i will now give my recommendation to this surgery place. the results are good and the people are friendly and very good at what they do.
Procedure was painless and uneventful. Vision is good. Nurses are all amazing. I'm so glad I decided to come to this clinic. Other clinics try to lure you in with discounts and promotions, this one charged me for my consultation and had a set price for surgery, I understand why now. You really get your money's worth. They maintain utmost professionalism and do not reek of sales like the high street practices. If you want Harley street standard, go here
Doctor PILLAI is a good surgeon. Thank you advance vision care for my new vision.
Mr Pilli has a very reassuring presence when you first meet him, he's knowledgeable and thorough. Everything went smoothly, I have great vision and I've just recommended my flatmate to have his surgery with Mr Pilli
Thank you for changing my life. For the the last year I don't need glasses. I have just been discharged and have my lasik eyes surgery done about a year ago. In this time the service levels have been flawless and my vision is great. I recommend this surgery, they are great.
I can't thank the team at AVC enough. You've truly changed my life. Doc Pill is a fantastic surgeon and his team is extremely thorough and calm and totally professional. You want it to feel clinical and professional because it is eye surgery. I only have wonderful things to say about AVC from the customer service centre to the clinic personnel, everyone treated me with care and attention. My vision is amazing and the follow up appointments are straightforward
No complaints. Surgery was smooth, doctor was fine, did a good job on my eyes. Customer service here is very good, the whole experience is very pleasant and professional
Great experience with Dr CT Pillai and his incredible team. They are all so lovely and kind and reassuring, he's really got some amazing people around him. I wanted to specially thank Carolas who made me feel so reassured on the day of my procedure. A week later and I already have 20 20 vision!
Very helpful and reassuring, happy to answer any and all questions
Awesome place with awesome results. The surgery is a bit uncomfortable and quite painful for about 4 hours after. But then it all gets better and voila!
Well worth my money to no longer suffer through the inconvenience of uncomfortable contacts and ill fitted glasses. It is optional surgery, and I'm so glad I took the steps to do it. The clinic and its members are all competent and friendly.
Very jolly and clearly knows his stuff
Explained everything clearly and fully, friendly and professional.
He was great, gave me reassurance about the procedure. Answered all my questions and made me feel at ease.
Very clear, concise , to the point guidance. Put me at ease with my apprehension, and very informative in explaining the science. I have recommended Dr Pillai to all my glasses wearing friends !
Quick, painless, not as bad as I thought. Could pretty much see the next day. Over 20/20 a week later. Nice and friendly staff, would recommend.
Dr Pillai was great. He knew I was nervous so did everything he could to reassure me and keep me calm. He explained everything to me in so much detail which really helped. All the staff were also really helpful and kind.
What makes this place the best is the thorough aftercare. Don't get me wrong, the surgery went perfectly and the doctor did a great job. But the care and warmth I've received during my aftercare is something I truly wasn't expecting. The clinical staff and optometrists have really made my experience so joyous. I look forward to seeing them all, they spend lots of time with me explaining everything and I'm so grateful to have found such a wonderful clinic.
Mate, this is the best surgery I've ever done. Chuffed. Have told my mates about this place too. Brilliant vision!
My mother had her surgery done here about 5 years ago and finally convinced me to do mine and I don't regret it one bit! I'm very very big on customer service and the whole staff here was amazing! They were all nice and patient. I'm absolutely pleased with my experience here. My results were amazing, it feels good to see 20/20 again. Thank you again to the staff in avc! You guys were great!
People with good vision don't understand. It's well worth any amount of money to see better. So this cost is insignificant. Anyone can buy a car, I have my vision. Love it. The clinic was very well maintained. Everything was in order. The entire facilities were spotless which is very comforting. I think they put extra effort into making you feel at home. The quality of care was excellent. I was scared to have this done with them, fear that something would mess up and my eyes would be worse than it already was and was pleased to be wrong with this. It was nice to have financing options. It makes life harder than it already is when you have to pay out of pocket for anything but with financing it takes the worry away.
I chose this clinic over two other clinics I got consultations at. The staff are professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. Sometimes they so knowledgeable, they give information a bit too quickly, but they are very receptive to answering any questions and repeating anything. The customer service was great and were responsive to phone calls. My eyes are healing well, they did a great job! Dr. Pillai was comforting during the procedure. The facility is well lit and clean. I also liked that they only offer the best technology, no messing around with the cheaper alternatives. Other places give an option for older technology for a cheaper price. The included checkups are quick. I'm very happy with my eyesight!
Genuinely amazed at my new eyes. The surgery has changed my life, after decades of wearing glasses and contact lenses. I trust this company with my eyes, they are nothing but honest and professional. I can see the leaves on the trees now!
I've recommended my whole family to have laser eye at AVC. They are wonderful as a clinic, I can't thank them enough. Special thanks to Raphael who was always available via email and phone throughout the process. It was so lovely to have continuity of care.
Great surgery results. Best decision I ever made!
Loved everyone here at AVC, the nurses and clinical people are a delight. They really run the surgery well. At every step I was addressed courteously and politely and the experience was really personal and professional. The heating wasn't working on the day of the surgery, but regardless of that, the team more than made up for it and the results are fantastic.
Big thank you to all at AVC, the service was impeccable the whole way through and my sight is absolutely perfect.
Dr Pillai provided an excellent service and surgery. He was very informative before the procedure and helped keep me relaxed during the surgery itself. He clearly knew his stuff and showed that was is very experienced.
I find doctor Pillar very professional and well trained staff make me very comfortable true all the processes
An absolute life changing experience. Had my operation a week ago and feel like a new man. Dr. Pillai and his team did a fantastic job and you will not find a better clinic than Advanced Vision Care. Many thanks again.
Very professional yet friendly surgeon. He was able to put me at ease during my consultation and I can't give enough praise for him
I am happy with the results and the care taken with the follow-ups that helped me deal with the initial dryness and any concerns I had.
I have been so scared to do the procedure although as I have attended the consultation and meeting Mr Pillai I felt confident in his words. It has been amazing he has given me my eyes back! Amazing customer service too, highly recommended
Great pre and after surgery service. The team has always been extremely attentive and available.
I have not had surgery at this clinic, but I did go for a consultation with the surgeon to see if I could have the surgery. They did loads of tests and scans on my eyes and eventually, after some very thorough testing and assessment I met the doctor Pillai. He said that it was not advisable to have surgery as he suspected an eye condition and referred me to my GP. I left the clinic feeling somewhat disheartened, but a few weeks later after having seen my local eye hospital, I was told that having eye surgery could have permanently damaged my eyes and that I was lucky that my condition was spotted as it mostly gets missed because it's very subtle at this stage. I would like to thank the team at AVC for being so very thorough with me, and for spotting my condition. I paid for my consultation, and it was worth every penny. I'm so thankful I didn't end up going to high street practice where they may not have spotted it. For anyone thinking of eye surgery, I would highly recommend this clinic. First class service all the way.
I am very pleased with the results of my lasik eye surgery. The optometrist and doctor were both very thorough and helpful and put me at ease regarding the risks and side effects. The information booklet I was supplied was extremely detailed and thorough and clear. By the time I had read everything, I had no further questions. The post surgery check ups were very good and my results are superb. Advanced Vision Care has my recommendation.
Superbly successful eye lens replacement surgery, my surgeon was excellent and Dr Pillai has been the best doctor for looking after my eyes. I feel like I have HD vision after 50 years of wearing glasses. I recommend Advanced Vision Care to everyone for their care and attention
My surgeon was reassuring and thorough. I recommend
I have 20:20 sight now, all thanks to Mr Pillai and the team at Adanced Vision Care. Special thanks to the nurse who held my hand during the op!
Lovely surgeon Dr Pillau, very good at laser
Lovely surgeon Dr Pillau, very good at laser
Thank you so much. Great experience and great surgeon
I went to several clinics before choosing AVC. I have to say, the clinical manner in which the process is carried out filled me with reassurance. It doesn't scream high street and they maintain absolute professionalism throughout. I told them I wanted to go home and think about it, and I was left alone to make my decision without annoying phone calls from call centres, unlike my experience with other providers. When I did decide to go ahead, everything was arranged efficiently and swiftly, surgery went perfectly, and the aftercare has been really great.
Truly thankful for everything everyone at AVC has done for me. From beginning to end, the journey has been nothing but professional.
Can't fault anything. Excellent vision, excellent service, excellent surgery.
The surgery wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be, was quick and painless and the results were pretty obvious even when I left the surgery that very day. Everyone was amazing and helpful and kind.
The service I received was excellent and very professional. I did not feel at all pressured into making a decision on what treatment to have or if wanted to go ahead at all.
The staff on the day were very good and calmed my nerves and the surgeon was excellent.
The results are incredible and the treatment was over so quickly and painlessly.
My experience was fantastic. Great care provided by all staff
Overall very good, friendly professional staff. Laser eye surgery is a fairly daunting thought. However it was all made very easy and relaxing by Dr Pillai and him team. It's two weeks now post surgery and I know have 20/20 vision.
Everyone was fabulous, I love my new vision. Gaya was my point of contact throughout and she is just the most pleasant and accommodating person to ever deal with. Thanks to all at this clinic, you've truly changed my life!
my only regret is i didnt have it done sooner.i had a hassle free experience with advanced vision care,and am now enjoying a life with no contact lenses or glasses(my eyes were -5 ).
Was very nervous about having the laser treatment but from the minute I walked out from my consultation all the nerves had disappeared. On the day of treatment everything was explained to me again and the surgeon he was lovely and so were all the clinic nurses. The procedure took 10 mins and I could see straight away it was amazing I should have done this 10 years ago! I would not hesitate in recommending avc to anyone they are outstanding.
Best thing I've ever done. Excellent vision
Lasik treatment really has really revolutionized my life. My treatment was arranged very quickly, carried out efficiently and is incredibly successful. 20/20 vision - awesome. The best money I have ever spent.
Very friendly staff, especially on the operating day. The whole process is very easy, I will still dread the dentist more than I did Advanced Vision Care! Seriously though, if you are considering laser eye surgery I would urge you to try it. Totally painless and the results are amazing. I wish I'd had it done years ago, it's so wonderful to have freedom from glasses at last.
All gain and no pain, really kind people and great service - I would say go for it!
The service was quick and hassle free, it is like going back to your youth with your vision. Staff are supportive and friendly
Cant complain. Everything went great, im happy with my eyes and the care avc are giving me and the care and attention of the opticinas and the nurses.
Really good, can't complain. Good vision, efficient service
Can I just say that you really get your money's worth here, the vision through my eyes is excellent now and I can see everything around me. The whole journey felt safe and professional and the doctor was great
Laser treatment was quick and the results are fabulous. Staff here are lovely. I recommend this surgery.
Very good service from start to finish. Pre-op, the op itself and aftercare has been exceptional. Would highly recommend. Staff very friendly.
Amazing! Dr Pillai and his team made the whole process worry free! From my first appointment to the day of my surgery Dr Pillai and his wonderful team were able to answer all my questions and made me feel at ease with the surgery. I would highly recommend the procedure and using AVC; the result has made such a difference.
Very personable and put me at ease straight away. Made the whole procedure very pleasant!
I can not fault any part of my experience with advanced vision care as a whole. Dr. Pillai was funny and personable, whilst staying professional throughout. This was a point of difference to me because it made me feel at ease with the care showed and I had no doubts in anything that he was doing.
I would like to thank the great team at Advanced Vision Centre, for taking great care of me and providing such excellent support on the day when I panicked with the nerves prior to the procedure. From start to finish, from consultation through to all my post-op care, everyone has been wonderful, honest, helpful and very professional. I would highly recommend the clinic, and the Doctor, to anyone considering this procedure. Thank you very much AVC.
Everything was explained thoroughly, Dr Pilli was incredibly reassuring and patient even though I had about a hundred questions. 3 weeks later and I can see without spectacles! Couldn't be happier!
I had Lasik surgery last year, and had my last appointment with AVC today, I am thrilled to be living life with 20/20 vision. Life without glasses and contact lenses is AMAZING, and it is all thanks to Dr Pillai and his team at AVC. Dr Pillai and the whole team have made me feel at ease throughout my journey. I would highly recommend AVC to everyone. Once again Thank you
Very professional experience and I'm very happy with the outcome. Would recommend
It's a truly life changing experience. The first few hours after surgery are painful but after that it is fine and a wonderful sensation to live without glasses. Thanks to the surgeon and team for giving me this gift.
Best thing I've ever done, wish I had had it done sooner! Excellent service throughout
I've just been discharged after having my laser eye, and I have to say it has been a lovely experience at Advance vision Care. The eye specialists who have looked after my eyes over the past year have been top class and the laser eye was straightforward and easy. This place has my trust and approval.
Excellent experience. Felt I was in good hands all the way through.
Laser eye surgery was a quick procedure and done well, my eyesight is incredible now! Great service, professional and informative. Highly recommend
Thank you to the whole team at AVC. Every step of the process felt detailed and professional and like they really cared. A wonderful clinic with wonderful people.
I'm very please with the results of my laser surgery. The clinic staff were extremely helpful and polite and very conscientious. Little thoughtful touches made the experience very personal and I felt really welcome throughout.
Expert doctor, very skilful and adept. My results after lasik surgery are wonderful. I couldn’t be happier.
Highly recommend. Professional, honest, and experienced. I attended with my husband and Mr Pillai was very frank and honest about the fact that he thought my husband wouldn't achieve the results he was expecting and so told us it was better that only I had treatment. I was very impressed by his honesty.
Everything well explained
Dr Pillai explained the procedure clearly and put me at ease.
Mr Pillai explained everything in great detail. Very reassuring and professional
Very professional approach. He explained the whole procedure clearly. Absolutely delighted with the results, I was very concerned about the procedure, but having now recovered from my cataract surgery I am thrilled with the results and would highly recommend the trifocals lens. Also Mr Alex Shortt my surgeon made me feel very comfortable throughout, and the whole team have been extremely professional and kind.
My experience with Dr CT Pillai was phenomenal. The initial assessment process and surgery went really smoothly, he was really informative and professional, while maintaining a welcoming environment. I recommend everyone, who has vision problems to see Dr. CT Pillai.
It was comfortable to have the treatment in this clinic,Dr Pillai make patients feel relaxed from the first consultation. Thus, making a decision is easy

This is the best and friendliest clinic I've ever been to. Everyone was SUPER friendly and SO helpful and they REALLY made me feel so much at ease! I cant recommend AVC enough, you can trust that they have your best interests at heart and go out of their way to make sure all fears are allayed. I'm so chuffed with my results, 20/20 vision!!
Great experience, staff were all very kind and helpful. Mr Pillai explained explained the treatment to me and made feel at ease. Thank you AVC
The Consultation with Dr Pillai and his team was excellent, I got honest advice and I felt like they were as informative as they could be. They were also very professional and reassuring even when I was as nervous as I was! I would definitely recommend Advanced Vision Care to anyone who wants quality care.
Mr Pillai and the AVC team were friendly and professional. Lots of chances to ask any questions during my consultation up to having surgery, would highly recommend.
Very good results, great outcome. Yay!
Thank you to the whole team and for all your care in giving me my sight back! The experience has been excellent from beginning to end. The consultation was very thorough and had all my concerns and questions addressed. The eye surgery wasn't as scary as I first thought and Mr Pillai was very patient with my nerves. If you're thinking about having eye work done just go for it, I would definitely recommend AVC and Mr Pillai to my friends.
Mr Pillai was very good, he was very patient with me as I was especially nervous. He kept me calm and reassured me through the surgery. I was please to see that he took the time to explain everything to me and allowed me to see inside the surgery room at the same time.
