Live Your Life The Way You See Fit

Assess your suitability for LASIK surgery with our $99 LASIK evaluation.

THE $99 LASIK EVALUATION INCLUDES:

Tonometry test

Measures eye pressure to screen for glaucoma.

Manifest refraction

Measures the eye prescription (eg myopia, astigmatism).

Corneal thickness test

Measures corneal thickness to assess LASIK suitability.

Corneal shape test

Assesses corneal curvature and structure to exclude conditions such as keratoconus (bulging cornea).

iDESIGN ANALYSIS

3D mapping of the entire corneal surface for a completely customised LASIK treatment.

Pupil dilation

Eyedrops are used to increase pupil size to examine the optic nerve and retina.

CONSULTATION WITH THE Lasik SURGEON

LASIK surgeon will share results, recommend LASIK surgery options and answer your questions.

The LASIK evaluation will determine your suitability for:

Advanced surface ablation
Epi-LASIK, LASEK, PRK, TransPRK

  • Slow visual recovery and more discomfort.
  • Option of a customised Wavefront-guided treatment aiming for sharper vision and lesser haloes and glares at night.
  • High predictability, especially when myopia is less than 600 degrees.
  • Increased risk of haze and scarring for those with high prescription.
  • Benefits thinner corneas as it removes the least corneal tissue.
  • Lesser dry eye compared to LASIK.

LASIK

  • Fast visual recovery.
  • Option of a customised Wavefront-guided treatment aiming for sharper vision and lesser haloes and glares at night.
  • High predictability including high myopia and high astigmatism.
  • May have more dry eye initially but will improve or resolve with time and not significant long-term usually.
  • Flap dislodgement after a month is rare; can engage in contact sports.

ReLEx SMILE / SMILE Pro

  • Fast visual recovery though LASIK is faster.
  • No option of a customised Wavefront-guided treatment.
  • Removes the most corneal tissue.
  • Fairly high predictability; less accurate for low myopia and astigmatism correction.
  • Corrects lower levels of astigmatism compared to LASIK, Epi-LASIK and LASEK.
  • Unable to enhance if needed and unable to correct hyperopia.
  • Lesser dry eye compared to LASIK.

OUR LASIK TECHNOLOGY

iLASIK laser surgery – a 100% bladeless customised Wavefront-guided treatment that corrects myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia in finer increments of 0.01D. iLASIK also removes unique imperfections of the eye (higher-order aberrations) that cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or non-Wavefront-guided technologies aiming for a better quality of vision and lesser haloes and starbursts at night.

Lang Eye Centre - Dr. Ang, an Eye Surgeon in Singapore operates the machine used to conduct LASIK Surgery.

iLASIK

iLASIK laser surgery is a combination of:

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

Determine the individual characteristics of your vision with the use of our iDesign Advanced WaveScan Technology which creates a clear 3D map (WaveScan) of the unique imperfections of the eyes in real time. These images are unique to every individual eye.

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

The iLASIK procedure uses the 100% bladeless IntraLase Method to create your corneal flap, which the LASIK surgeon folds back to perform the iLASIK procedure.

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

Your vision will be corrected using the VISX Advanced CustomVue Wavefront-guided treatment which 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.

What To Expect During Surgery & Post-Surgery?

15-minute out-patient procedure for both eyes – it is low-risk and has minimal discomfort, pain and side effects.

During the LASIK surgery, your eyes will be numbed with eyedrops. 

Fast recovery with most people being able to return to work the next day.

Enjoy a better quality of life when you gain freedom and convenience from not having to use and maintain glasses and contact lenses.

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 comfortable with minimal pain 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.
