I had my surgery in April 2008 and I have just been discharged from the Accuvision clinic in Solihull, Birmingham. I have 130% vision - better than 20/20!!
I read lots of reviews on this site and also visited Ultralase before making my final decision. I just felt so at ease with the staff at Accuvision and I felt I could ask them anything and that they were very honest and open. At Ultralase it was almost as if they were repeating the exact same spiel over and over to the thousands who pass through their door. They also wouldn't stop calling me after the appointment. Accuvision don't apply any pressure whatsoever - they leave you to make your own mind up.
I think that it's important to know for anyone considering surgery that it can take a while for your eyesight to recover and settle down. I certainly wasn't one of those that could step out of the clinic and immediately see across the road! My eyes were sensitive and my focus rather up and down for a fortnight or so, but I was able to return to work after a few days and was always closely monitored by the clinic. My night vision took several weeks longer as I had quite a lot of halo effect and ghosting so I wasn't comfortable driving at night. I was a bit concerned about this, but they assured me that this was normal. Four months on, it is much better.
Accuvision in Solihull is a small clinic and they get their customers through recommendation not intense advertising like their larger competitors. The team are so friendly - especially Nick, and my results are fantastic so I cannot recommend them enough!
Before i had my surgery i looked into a number of clinics but my initial chat on the phone with the Accuvision team made my mind up about which company i was going to use.
The whole experience has been brilliant from the inital phone call all the way through to the aftercare.
Everyone is very friendly and your made to feel welcome, you are treated as an individual and every single step of the process is explained to you. They are also on hand to deal with any queries you may have.
The surgery was good, it was over within 15 minutes, i had no pain during or after surgery, although it felt strange during the process as you are not in control. They explain everything as they go so you are not wondering what is happening.
Before i went for surgery i could not see past my hand i now have 20:20 vision and i have never been so happy.
I would definitely recommend Accuvision.
Very impressed with Accuvision. I looked into about 4 different companies but went with Accuvision as they didn't push me into a decision. I felt in control in MY treatment. One company are still contacting me on almost a weekly basis trying to persuade me into spending my money with them. Accuvision are fantastic. From the moment you walk in they have your best interests/ vision at heart. I recommend them
I choose to have laser eye surgey after much debating and research my consultation with Accuvision in Solihull was the third that I had. I liked the fact that the wavefront technology was offered as standard and the lesser treatment offered by other companies was not an option. I also liked the fact that there was no additional charge for the wavefront technology. The whole procedure from the first consultation to the post checkups was made very easy and uncomplicated and the care I have received was excellent. My level of short sightedness was high but the results have been amazing and it has been worth every penny.
I had 3 consultations and my experiance with accuvision was the only where i was treated as a person not a pay cheque, the service very very individual and personal finance wasnt disscussed in more than a few words the main focus was making sure i was happy to go through with it and if i was sure it was the right decision, the whole procedure was so much eaisier than i expected its about as uncomfortable as an eye test which is a walk in the park to be honest so dont be afraid, i wish id done it years ago
