Our Results

We are exceptionally results-driven and routinely analyse and enhance our treatments to optimise safety and effectiveness. We believe our results are the best in the UK and amongst the best published worldwide.

All visual outcomes are what our patients see, post treatment, without any glasses or contact lenses.

All the results are for healthy eyes free of any other eye disease that may otherwise limit their visual ability.

LASER EYE SURGERY

  • For common prescriptions 100% of our patients see 20/20 or better with both eyes.
  • 90% of our patients see 20/16 or better (our patients can see at 20 feet what an average person can only see at 16 feet).
  •  85% of our patients see some letters (if not all of them) on the 20/12 chart which is the pinnacle of human vision and often significantly better vision than either glasses or contact lenses provide.

The chances of needing a laser enhancement procedure (fine tuning) is less than 1%.

LASIK

These results are for patients with common prescriptions who had LASIK, but who otherwise had healthy eyes free of any disease that may otherwise limit their visual ability.

All visual outcomes are measured without glasses/contact lenses.

  • Patients seeing 20/20 or better

International statistics – 90.8%

Allon Barsam statistics – 100%

LASIK Enhancement rates

This refers to the percentage of patients who need more laser treatment post-initial treatment, to reach the intended refraction.

Internationally – 8%

Allon Barsam – <1%

CATARACT SURGERY

These results are for patients who have had cataract surgery but who otherwise had healthy eyes, free of any other eye disease, that may otherwise limit their visual ability.

Patients seeing 20/20 or better 

National statistics - 51%

Allon Barsam patient statistics – 100%

Percentage of patients seeing 20/40 or better (the legal driving standard)

Allon Barsam patient statistics – 100%

National statistics - 95%

All visual outcomes are measured with their best attainable visual acuity (which is with glasses or contact lenses).

ALL INTRAOCULAR LENS SURGERY (RLE, CATARACT AND ICL)

  • 92.1% of patients who have IOL surgery with Allon Barsam have 20/20 vision or better 1 month on from the procedure.
  • 100% of patients who have IOL surgery with Allon Barsam have 20/40 vision (the legal driving standard) or better 1 month on from the procedure.
  • 92.3% of patients who have had Refractive Lens Exchange with Allon Barsam have 20/20 vision or better 1 month on from the procedure.
  • 100% of patients who have had Refractive Lens Exchange procedure with Allon Barsam have 20/40 or better 1 month on from the procedure, which is the legal standard for driving.
