I am 51 years old and before the treatment was short sighted and also needed reading glasses. There are 2 reasons I decided to have the treatment, firstly I had to have two pairs of glasses which was a nuisance. Secondly I ride motorcycles as a hobby and used contact lenses which were okay for distance but no good for near vision i.e. looking at the speedo! The procedure went smoothly and Mr Pillai and the staff at AVC were all excellent. I now have 20/20 distance vision and can read J1 which I think is about as good as it gets. Overall I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend AVC.
