Advanced Vision Care have been partnering with the Dream Makeover Essex team over the past few months. Three lucky winners received makeover prizes totally £25k, including treatments from AVC, Smile Design by Ash, Zoology Hair, Perfect Skin, Mode Beauty, Body Perfect and Philips Oral Healthcare, plus full make-up, fashion and styling.
The big reveal event happened last week in the Marriott Hotel Waltham Abbey, where the DME partners and the winners family and friends witnessed the unveiling of the results of all their hard work. It was an emotionally charged and heart warming event, hosted by TV presenter and Essex celebrity, Jeff Brazier, who has seen the winners through the transformation process.
Mr CT Pillai, Founder and Medical Director of Advanced Vision Care, was a member of the judging panel – you can read about his experience here – and also carried out treatments on all three of the winners.
Eleasha Newberry had to wear glasses and without them couldn’t even see the top letter on an optician’s chart. She was short sighted, so Mr Pillai carried out wavefront intralase (blade free) Lasik technique on both eyes. Her one week post operative check showed she now has 20/20 vision.
Keith Welch wore thick plus lenses, but being a building site worker, this made life difficult as he needs to move around the site a lot. Mr Pillai carried out bilateral Lasik intralase (blade front) wavefront treatment. His one week post operative check showed that he now has 100% sight and he is very pleased to be driving without the need to wear glasses for the first time in his life. He is now able to work on site without any problems and is driving with confidence.
Caroline McKenna had a lot of astigmatism in both eyes and the lenses in her glasses were very thick. This had shattered her confidence. Caroline was not suitable for laser treatment due to her high prescription, however we are specialists in Implantable Contact Lens treatment and were were able to offer her this. Each lens was tailor made for her prescription in each eye, the body of the eye will not reject the lens at all as it is bio-compatible. This is a unique treatment which is done by very few centres in the UK. Caroline’s treatment has corrected her prescription fully and she can now see well without her glasses.
It has been an emotional and rewarding process for everyone involved and Advanced Vision Care are thrilled to have taken part in it.
