Why Choose Us?
At FOCUS we’ve invested a lot of time and resources into the best technology for our procedures. Our attention to detail and care has meant that this technology matched to our surgeons’ expertise produces some of the best laser eye surgery results in the UK today. 100% of our short sighted patients achieve 20/20 vision or better after treatment with many of them obtaining 20/12 ‘Supervision’. 20/12 is in fact almost twice as good as 20/20 vision.
Laser eye surgery technology has evolved at a rapid pace during the past ten years. If you’re researching online before deciding where to have treatment you might come across a bewildering number of lasers, scanners and other equipment used at various clinics. At FOCUS we keep it very simple – we use only the very best tried and tested German and Swiss technology to achieve the best results for our patients with the highest precision and safety. Our Femtosecond laser is the Ziemer LDV Crystal Line and our WaveLight Allegretto Eye Q 400 Hz is the German made refractive laser that corrects vision.
3 Our Surgeons
Mr David Allamby and Mr Ali Mearza our surgeons
When visiting FOCUS you’ll have treatment with one of our four surgeons – Mr David Allamby, Mr Ali Mearza, Mr Allon Barsam or Mr Mohammed Muhtaseb. All are experts in the field of ophthalmology with Mr Mearza and Mr Allon Barsam being NHS Consultants and also working abroad for various charities. Mr David Allamby is our founder and has pioneered the treatment of ‘presbyopia’ (Reading vision correction). Mr Allamby introduced the ground breaking KAMRA treatment to the UK in 2011.
People mostly associate laser eye surgery with correcting short sight. However we’ve been at the forefront of correcting reading vision for many years. If you need glasses or lenses to read menus, your mobile phone or a newspaper then our groundbreaking KAMRA treatment could change your life. Using a tiny inlay the procedure takes minutes but lasts a lifetime and enables you to throw away your ‘readers’ for good. If you are suitable then KAMRA could be something that really does make a difference that was not available before now. We were the first clinic to introduce the KAMRA in 2011 and are recognised as a world centre of excellence for the procedure.
Everyone who visits FOCUS receives the same high level of care, understanding and individual attention. We have been very fortunate to treat a number of high profile celebrities such as Denise Van Outen, Paul Ross and Rick Wakeman as well as Capital FM DJ Roberto and radio DJ Toby Anstis recently. All of these people have decided through word of mouth referrals that FOCUS was the best place to have laser eye surgery and they have been very happy with the results and care FOCUS offers. It’s worth noting that we treat everyone who comes to Focus as a VIP!

7 Our People

9 We’re not a chain
People often say that this is one of the biggest factors involved in their decision to come for laser eye surgery at FOCUS. We have only one clinic in central London and as such all our medical director’s efforts are concentrated on making it the very best in terms of safety, patient care and results. Being a single clinic means that the team know each other very well and that you will see the same people throughout your consultation to treatment period. It enables us to spend more time with our patients, be more focussed and provide a higher level of care than a high street chain.
