Description

We are an independent surgeon-led clinic. AVC was founded in 2003 on Harley Street by world-renowned refractive specialist Dr Pillai, who has been at the forefront of the development of the ophthalmic experience for over 25 years.

He is one of the very few refractive surgeons in the country to not only have a corneal fellowship but also one for refractive laser surgery. He is a pioneering surgeon that was one of the first consultants in the UK to perform bilateral laser eye surgery (treating both eyes on the same day) consequently having an impact on the effectiveness of the treatment and recovery times. Dr Pillai founded AVC with the aim to provide patients with access to the best laser eye technology available and in his expert hands achieve the incredible results with outstanding patient care

Our modern clinic houses the only transparent laser theatre in Europe and the most advanced non-laser theatre in the country – the Alcon Refractive Suite treating Cataracts, Lens Replacement and Implantable Contact Lenses. At AVC we are truly independent with no affiliation with any manufacturers or consultants which means we provide the best treatment to meet our patients visual and lifestyle needs.
