OUR LASIK TECHNOLOGY

We provide the iLASIK laser surgery – a 100% bladeless customised Wavefront-guided treatment. iLASIK is able to correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia in finer increments of 0.01D. It also removes unique imperfections of the eye (higher-order aberrations) that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses aiming for you to see lesser haloes and starbursts at night.

iLASIK

iLASIK laser surgery is a combination of:

Step 1
iDesign computerised 3D mapping

Step 2
IntraLase® bladeless technology

Step 3
VISX Advanced CustomVue® Wavefront-guided LASIK technology

STEP 1 / iDESIGN ADVANCED WAVESCAN – CREATING YOUR PERSONAL VISION PROFILE

The first step of the iLASIK surgery is to perform a series of tests to determine the individual characteristics of your vision with the use of our iDesign Advanced WaveScan Technology.

The iDesign System creates a clear 3D map (WaveScan) of the unique imperfections of the eyes in real time. These images are unique to every individual.

The WaveScan is saved onto a thumbdrive which is then transferred to the VISX excimer laser machine during the Wavefront-guided treatment.

STEP 2 / INTRALASE BLADELESS TECHNOLOGY – CREATING THE iLASIK CORNEAL FLAP

The iLASIK procedure uses the 100% blade-free IntraLase Method to create your corneal flap, which is a thin layer of tissue the eye surgeon folds back to perform the iLASIK procedure.

STEP 3 / VISX Advanced CustomVue ® Wavefront-guided LASIK technology

After establishing your personal vision profile using iDesign WaveScan Technology and the creation of your corneal flap using the IntraLase Method, your vision will be corrected using the VISX Advanced CustomVue Wavefront-guided treatment. It uses the digital information from the WaveScan to make adjustments and design a customised treatment for the eyes.

The VISX excimer laser reshapes the corneal tissue under the flap. The flap is then returned to its original position.

Trivia: iLASIK is an approved laser treatment for NASA astronauts and the United States TOPGUN fighter pilots.

FAQs

What can LASIK surgery correct?

The VISX Star S4 IR excimer laser can correct up to 1,200 degrees of short-sightedness, 500 degrees of long-sightedness and 500 degrees of astigmatism. For those 40 years and above with presbyopia, monovision can be considered to overcome the need to use reading glasses for near work.

Is there any preparation before the LASIK evaluation?

If you use contact lenses, you need to stop using soft lenses 3 days or hard contact lenses 14 days before the LASIK evaluation.

What are the side effects of LASIK surgery?

There are 2 common side effects – dry eye and seeing haloes and starburst at night. For most, these side effects are temporary, will resolve with time and are usually not significant in the long term.

Will I feel any pain during LASIK surgery?

The surgery is generally painless and comfortable as numbing eyedrops will be used before the surgery.

When can I return to work or school after LASIK surgery?

Most people are able to return to work 1 day after LASIK surgery as the vision recovery is quick and discomfort level is low.

Can I go blind from LASIK surgery?

LASIK surgery in itself does not cause blindness. However, if one gets an infection and leaves it untreated, vision can be lost.
