Advanced Vision Care’s very own Medical Director, Mr CT Pillai, has been listed as the number one laser eye surgeon in the UK according to Clinic Compare. They had this to say:
“As he is one of the leading refractive surgeons in the world, it’s fitting that Mr. Pillai decided to found AVC on Harley Street, the world famous centre for medical treatment. He has performed many successful procedures using Laser Insitu Keratomileusis (LASIK) and has a friendly, hands on approach. The central London surgery deploys advanced technology whilst putting patients at ease.”
We thought this was the perfect opportunity to tell you a little more about Mr Pillai and his expertise. Mr Pillai founded Advanced Vision Care after amassing a lifetime’s experience in refractive surgery as a consultant for several well-known clinics in the UK and as a consultant ophthalmic surgeon for numerous NHS hospitals in the UK and hospitals in India.
He completed his Fellowship in cornea anterior segment diseases in the UK and the USA in 1994 and went on to work with many internationally recognised surgeons including Tom Casey and Professor Dua in the UK; Dr Siganos in Greece; and Stephen Wilson and Dr Cavanaugh in the USA. Mr Pillai has performed over 20,000 LASIK, LASEK and PRK procedures and is considered to be one of the most experienced surgeons in this field. He regularly presents papers and lectures at national and international refractive conferences and is extensively published in peer reviewed journals.
Mr Pillai’s research in the areas of corneal vascularisation, specular microscopy in uveitis, amniotic membrane transplantation, excimer laser surgery and dry eye disorders has contributed directly towards the advancement of techniques in these areas of ophthalmic medicine. His surgical skills and record of very low complication rates have been widely applauded in specialist journals such as Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, Eye, IOVS, Optician and Cosmetic Surgery. Mr CT Pillai is considered to be one of the world’s elite refractive surgeons.
His expertise and knowledge of his field is second to none and sets a standard that is unrivalled by other clinics. At the same time he remains completely hands-on and his open, friendly approach, means patients are quickly put at ease.
