    Can everyone get LASIK treatment?

    No, it depends on the cornea thickness. And cornea thickness is in-born. With stringent Patient Suitability Guidelines, we reject 1 out of 4 patients.

    Is there a minimum or maximum power where a person cannot undergo LASIK?

    There is no power limit; the only limit is the cornea thickness.

    How do l know l am a suitable candidate?

    1) You must be a healthy adult, 18 years of age with stable glasses power for at least 1 year.

    2) Not recommended for pregnant or nursing mums.

    3) Have sufficient corneal thickness therefore come in for a 1 hour eye examination.

    4) To be in good health and free of corneal & other eye diseases.

    What are the side effects? Will I go blind if it goes wrong?

    Common side effects are dry eyes, light sensitivity, glare and halos during the first few weeks, most will subside over time. Blindness could occur if a serious complication such as infection or scarring occurs. However, this is very rare. Antibiotic eye drops are prescribed as a routine to prevent infection.

    Is it painful?

    The procedure is performed using anesthetic eye drops so there is no pain during the procedure. However, you may experience some eye discomfort and tearing during the first 24 hours after the surgery. It will gradually resolve by the second or third day.

    How long does it take to recover?

    Within 24 hours, most patients will experience better vision which will gradually improve over the next few days.

    What are the restrictions after LASIK?

    As with any vision treatment procedure where the cornea is altered, certain precautions should be taken. You should avoid getting contaminated water in the eyes for at least one month. This includes water from swimming pools, spas, lakes and the ocean. When showering or taking baths, keep the eyes closed in order to avoid getting soap and dirty water into the eyes. When exercising, sweat should be kept out of the eyes for at least a month after the procedure. Also, patients should avoid rubbing their eyes vigorously for a month following the procedure. Females should also avoid applying eye makeup for one month after the procedure.

    How soon can I return to work?

    Normal activities can be resumed next day.

    How long will the correction last?

    The distance vision correction is permanent following laser vision correction. However, there are some age related changes that will occur regardless of whether or not someone has LASIK.

    If I have a lazy eye or if one of my eyes is blind, can I still have LASIK?

    LASIK is not a cure for blindness and is only done on normal, healthy eyes with refractive errors. If you have a lazy eye, we would need to have a comprehensive eye examination and assess you on a case-by-case basis. If you have only one functional eye, LASIK is not recommended for that eye.

    I'm over 40. Will LASIK work for me? Will I still need reading glasses?

    YES! The LASIK procedure will be able to correct your shortsightedness or long-sightedness with astigmatism. However, you will still need reading glasses to see clearly up close from 40 years of age onwards. Alternatively, some patients may prefer to have Monovision where LASIK can be performed under one eye so as to leave it slightly myopic, giving the patients the ability to use one eye for near vision while the other eye for distance vision . The NearVisionTM CK® (Conductive Keratoplasty), the revolutionary surgical reversal of presbyopia is available.

    l will never get Presbyopia if l have shortsightedness?

    No, in general everyone will get Presbyopia after the age of 40. With minor shortsightedness, it delays the person’s dependency on reading glasses.

    How many days do l have to layoff contact lens before the pre Lasik treatment or the comprehensive eye examination?

    According to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards, soft contact lenses should not be worn for 2 weeks prior to your initial evaluation. Usage of Toric soft lenses or rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses should be stopped for at least 3 weeks prior to your initial evaluation. Usage of hard lenses, should be stopped at least 4 weeks prior to your initial evaluation.

    Custom LASIK, what is it about?

    Custom Lasik is a procedure that involves the use of a wavefront analyzer and enables the surgeon to customize the conventional Lasik procedure to individual eyes. This customization can help you see clearer and sharper than ever before.
