previous my degree was 275 each eye.. then now perfect.. but somehow i dunno why still got abit of "shang guan" left (abt 50 degree). Anyway it doesn't really affect much.
There's no pain actually. The procedure is they will apply some lotion around ur eye, then drip some anesthetic into your eyes. Wait a few min. Nurse or doctor will call u in. They place a tool to open up ur eye and prevent blinking. Another tool onto your eye to cut open the top layer (cant remember wat's the term.. cornea?). It's only this part that's a little uncomfortable..
After that, the doc will flip open the cornea and do laser. This part no feeling, no pain.. after laser, the corner will be flip back.
And it's done!
Through out the whole process, the doc will put eye drops every now and then, so it's very cool and comfortable.
After surgery, gotta put eyedrop every 15 mins, then after 1 day, put eye drop every hour for a week. If anytime u wanna put also can..
Then u have to go back for checkup on (Day 0 is the day of surgery) Day 1, Week 1, Month 1, Month 6.. and finish..
Disclaimer: I'm not a doc.. the above is just personal experience.. For any matters, pls consult a professional.
Just to share my experience. I just did my lasik in Feb before CNY. I went to an eye specialist in Hougang and she has a clinic in Mount E too. She is very friendly, patient and nice. Total I spend near to 4K for both eyes inclusive of all subsequent consultation.
Hmm, for those who are interested, you will need to go for pre assessment test too before the doc can ascertain whether you are suitable to do lasik.
Btw... I chose Dr Leonard Ang at SNEC to do my surgery. My friends recommended him because he went to US to learn latest lasik techniques. Paid about $1300 per eyeâ€¦My friends are also very happy with him.
I used to be pretty blind without my contacts- perfect vision now.
Apparently the newspaper report was inaccurate. There was actually no infection cases. Some patients had inflammation (itâ€™s called diffuse lameller keratitis), which generally responds with meds. The newspaper issued an apology the next day for the inaccurate report- it came out in a small section which Iâ€™m sure most people missedâ€¦
I think the fact that SNEC stopped surgery shows their commitment to patient safety. I hear that they are making changes to ensure things are even safer. My doc was not affected, so my friends are not worried and are still carrying on with their appointments with him.
would you recommend to do Lasik on one eye at a time or both eyes at the same time? wats the pros n cons? reading thro the thread, it seems that one eye at a time is a more common option. pls share ur experience. thanks
I had mine at The Lasik Surgery Clinic. To me, it makes no different whether it from clinic or SNEC. I paid total close to $3000. The cost that they give you of $2400 includes all review and eye drop but the number of eye drop they give is no enough which you have to purchase more like $15 per box. I brought about 5 boxes extra after the surgery. One thing good about clinic is no need to queue for surgery and appointment date. If you go for consultation today you should be able to arrange for surgery within 1 or 2 days. As for SNEC and appointment date was terrible which have to wait for at least 2 weeks. My doctor from LSC was Dr Tay. He's a very nice guy and pro. Maybe you can look for him.
I did my lasik with Dr Leonard Ang at SNEC. I read lots of raves abt him in forums and decided to go to him. Heâ€™s really experienced + heâ€™s very nice. No pain during surgery and can see clearly day after surgery. At my last visit I can see 6/4.5, which is better than 6/6 vision. He really deserves all the great reviews.
I paid $1320 for each eye. U dun have to wait so long for assessment and opâ€¦ based on other podders advice, my frenz and I emailed him directly and got assessment and surgery all done within a week.
Heâ€™s super nice and helped arranged everything 4 us.
I'm thinking of doing Lasik in S'pore and my fren (just done 2 months back) recommdanded Lasik Surgery Clinic, when i called this morning they very kan-jiong ask me today onwards dun wear contact lens for 3 days then come this friday for check. Few hours later call me again ask me come Thurs, V-day got mystery gift... but i say cannot cos my eyes need to rest 3 days ma...
The lady who answered the phone recommdanded Dr Yap, say he's specialist in my degree abt L375 / R350 de. Anyone use him before? My fren de is Dr Goh.
I just did my lasik 1 week ago..
and i bought too many REFRESH PLUS boxes..bought 6 of them and my eyes dont experience dryness or irritation. So i m letting go some boxes..
As i bought from the clinic, its cheaper than outside retail price.
(Watson selling at $18++, Guardian at $17++)
So if anyone interested, drop me an sms :98233753
Each box @ $16. Expires: 2009
I'm considering Lasik before my wedding at the end of 2009.
Hope tt those who've done it can help address some of my qns:
1. When & where did u do it, & who was ur dr?
2. How mch was it?
3. How was ur recovery process like - fast, slow, pain, etc?
4. Was there any pain at all - during & after surgery?
5. Did u do both eyes at once? Why or why not?
6. What are some problems/issues u faced tt u did NOT have b4 Lasik? e.g. impaired night vision
7. What degree was ur vision b4 Lasik?
8. Did u go for enhancement? Why?
Personally, I am not sure if I should go thru the "risk" of Lasik. After all, my degrees' only like 250 & 300.
While the glowing results often reported off the forums and Net are tempting, one cannot help but wonder really about the risks:
1) i did mine yesterday! with Dr Lee hung Ming, parkway eye centre
2)it was slightly under 4K, all in all. i opted for standard bladeless technology
3) recovery was fast. i walked out of the op room with hazy vision and it gets better by the hour. now i'm able to watch TV and type on computer. i'm still waiting for my vision to get sharper.
4)no pain at all. though my eyelids felt heavy an hour after the surgery- i went to sleep it off and was alright
5) both eyes at one time, for convience. i thought the technology was safe enough. Diligent use of anti-biotics is impt to ensure non infection
6) i didnt have any problem, as it has only been one day, i'm waiting for my vision to become sharper. now i feel as though i have some residual astimatigsm, a little blurry vision especially when i see lights.
7) mine was around 600 degree
8) i went for checkup just now, one eye is 6/6, the other is almost 6/6. waiting for eye to stabilise, hope that both eyes are perfect in a week time!
Hihi, I did my LASIK at Shinagawa in sept 09.
The doctor there is very professional and very detailed in answering my quries.
They have rewarded me with a $200 voucher for recommending friends and relatives.
Am letting go of the voucher at $100. Valid till Jun 2010.
