At all Stages from my initial consultation appointment, to being explained by Mr Pillai the procedure of having CLE to the arranging of my appointments we all excellent. On the day of my first operation, I was naturally feeling apprehensive but Dr Goran Helgason and the nurses all made me very reassured and relaxed so much so I have no worries the next day when I had my other eye done! The result is great and reading without glasses was instant. It’s good to know I will never develop cataracts in the future and not reading my glasses is excellent. I thoroughly recommend A.V.C

Having ICL felt like a huge decision because I've been wearing contact lenses and glasses for 30 years without too much trouble. But the idea of being able to wake up and the morning and see, being able to swim under water again, and being able to avoid tired eyes every evening was enough to get me to take the plunge. Mr Pilai reassured me about my decision, and Dr Helgason was amazing throughout, taking the time to talk through every single question I had and tackle all my concerns. The actual procedure and subsequent recovery was so quick and painless, both Dr Helgason and his support team were professional, efficient and reassuring. I am delighted with the results - better than 20/20 vision without any lenses or glasses.
