Advanced Vision Care

Independent surgeon led Harley street clinic offering a wide range of vision correction treatments that have all undergone extensive clinical trials.

Experts in vision correction


Advanced Vision Care (AVC) is unlike other clinics offering treatments in the UK.

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.

Advanced Vision Care offers a range of eye treatments to provide total visual rehabilitation and we are often able to treat individuals that have been found unsuitable by other clinics. 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, Clear Lens Exchange 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.

At Advanced Vision Care, we are devoted to patient care, which is why a surgeon is present throughout the entire patient journey from consultation to treatment and aftercare.

We only use the most advanced technology available and provide all patients with treatments that are truly unique and individually designed. For these reasons, we have become one of the UK’s leading independent vision correction clinics and consistently deliver world class care and constantly exceed expectations with our unrivalled results.

In 2007 AVC introduced non-laser treatment procedures including Cataracts SurgeryClear Lens Exchange (CLE) and Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL). To maintain our high standards we sought out two experts in non-laser treatments which are also world renowned surgeons to be part of our surgical team: Dr Goran Helgason and Professor Martin Filipec.
