A warm welcome

You will be seen by our friendly receptionist who will introduce you to the other members of the team including our highly experienced opticians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

You will then have a very comprehensive assessment by Dr. Arbabi himself, who will recommend a personalised plan after taking into account all the examinations, the test results and most importantly your priorities. We make sure to maintain our highest integrity and standards, helping you to make a decision that best suits you. You will NEVER be pressurised to have vision correction surgery.

The treatment

We will ensure you are comfortable and put at ease before proceeding with the surgery. Dr. Arbabi performs 99.9% of his vision correction surgeries by only using eye drops anaesthetic. Most laser vision correction surgeries take about 5 minutes or so per eye. Cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange takes about 10 minutes. You will be given a hot drink of your choice to relax you before you go back home. You will also be given all your post-surgery drops and instructions.
Comperhansive after care

Comprehensive after care

Your aftercare appointments will be arranged. Most people can get back to normal activities very quickly, some even after 24-48 hours depending on the type of surgery and your healing response. In addition, as part of our unique service, you will be given Dr. Arbabi’s personal phone number so you can call or WhatsApp him directly if you have any concerns or want to discuss anything about your vision correction surgery.

Laser technology

This is the most popular vision correction surgery World-wide with very fast visual recovery. We use the advanced Femtosecond laser to create the flap unlike some other centres that use traditional microkeratome blade.

‘no touch’ TransPRK

This is an advanced modification of the traditional PRK/LASEK. Here the eye is not touched with any instrument. The laser removes the epithelium without suction, flap, blade or alcohol.


Still a very effective and safe treatment but due to pain and slow recovery Dr Arbabi only uses this if you are not good candidate for other lasers.
