LASIK eye surgeryis a surgical procedure suitable for correction of about 90% of poor eyesight. The procedure is a safe one and offers outstanding results. It is also one of the most common elective surgical procedures performed in our clinic and worldwide.
Our eyes let us see things by ensuring that light is accessible through the front portion of our eye (cornea). The cornea focuses light on the retina; then this information is passed to the brain through your optic nerve for interpretation.
For people with longer eyeballs, the image focus in front of the retina, leading to short-sightedness, while for people with shorter eyeballs, the image forms behind the retina, which leads to long-sightedness.
During laser eye surgery, the surgeon uses a laser to correctly reshape the cornea to allow it to focus images directly on the retina. This makes the patient see clearly without needing contact lenses or glasses.
With LASIK eye surgery, you get to save more money you could have spent on glasses and contact lenses in the future.
If you do not have any other visual problems and your prescription is a common one, you would likely get a 20/20 vision after your LASIK procedure.
Researches have shown that when done correctly, LASIK is effective and safe and most Ophthalmic Consultants in London have used it to give their patients a 20/20 vision and in some cases, a better sight from both eyes.
Some research has shown that the majority of patients who undergo LASIK eye surgery are satisfied with the result, and you can be sure that at the end of your LASIK procedure, you will be happy with the result.
If you have presbyopia or your prescription turns out to be a high one, LASIK can comfortably correct it. The procedure gives results that most people deem impossible.
During the consultation, our consultant/surgeon will give you a detailed explanation of the procedure and also tell you about the potential benefits and risks it comes with. This allows you to consider the perks and risks to determine if the process is suitable for you.
The procedure is usually a painless one, and it takes about 10-15 minutes. You will receive anaesthetic drops to help numb the site of the surgery. The surgeon will use a femtosecond laser on the cornea to create a very thin cut. Next, the surgeon will gently reflect the flap to enable the reshaping of the cornea by the second laser (the excimer laser).
During the procedure, we use a sophisticated pupil tracking device to ensure the process is safe and accurate. If your eyes move during the surgery, the laser will respond accordingly to the movement of the eye or stop automatically if the need arises. This lets the surgeon reposition the flap before working on your other eye.
You may experience dryness in your eyes, an infection, glare or reduced vision at night, but these symptoms are common after this eye surgery. They are also temporary and will stop after a while.
Our consultant will guide you after the surgery and inform you of the dos and don'ts if you want to have a successful recovery. For instance, you need to avoid rubbing the eyes, stay away from dust and dirt, and avoid contact with water during your recovery period.
We always offer treatment plants suitable for each patient. We aim to provide outstanding services and have a perfect result at the end of the surgery, so we consider each patient's visual needs and personal preference to create the treatment plan.
We have world renowned surgeons to perform outstanding LASIK eye surgery. Our doctors, nurses, and anaesthetists are experts at what they do.
We understand that LASIK eye surgery needs precision and accuracy, so we have invested heavily in acquiring advanced and recent surgical technology. We are not affiliated with any particular manufacturers and are at liberty to get the best surgical equipment for our patients needs.
Using faster laser increases accuracy and makes the surgery safer. This means that we would conserve more of your eye tissue during the surgery.
At our clinic, we use a faster laser for all our surgeries, including LASIK eye surgery. We perform our LASIK eye surgery with a wavefront-optimised, bladeless guided procedure, and the procedure combines these two accurate and fast laser.
Thousands of surgeons have successfully carried out millions of LASIK procedures worldwide. The procedure is currently the most elective eye surgical procedure for people over 18. It now has the latest technology which has helped address and reduced most of the problems encountered during the surgery.
However, like other surgeries, there are some risks. The expertise of the surgeon also plays a role in the success of the surgery. At our clinic, we have experienced surgeons who use the latest technology to treat different types of prescriptions.
This is a new and unique treatment option for people affected by presbyopia, and need reading glasses. This treatment involves the use of LASIK eye surgery to adjust each eye, so one serves the purpose of distance vision while the other serves for close vision. After the procedure, the brain gradually adapts to each eye, focusing on different distances.
Patients who have a high prescription can include LASIK eye surgery in a combined treatment called bioptics. Bioptics helps to correct the majority of refractive errors using implantable contact lenses or refractive lens exchange. After the surgery, the surgeon will refine any remaining refractive error using the advanced Z-LASIK.
Only well-trained refractive surgeons can carry out bioptics because the procedure requires the expertise of multi-skilled surgeons. Our surgeons are well experienced in laser surgery and implant placement which makes them among the few surgeons carrying out this rare procedure.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
