At Lee Hung Ming Eye Centre, we use the iLASIK Suite by Abbott Medical Optics (AMO). Considered a breakthrough in the refractive surgery industry, this new generation, all-laser treatment produces exceptional results – so much so that NASA Astronauts and US Navy Seals are now able to undergo LASIK surgery.
During the pre-iLASIK eye assessment, a high-definition 3D corneal map is generated using the iDesign machine. Wavefront-guided eye-mapping technology is used to detect any microscopic differences or imperfections in each patient’s eye. This 3D map is then transmitted to the Star S4 IR Excimer Laser to be used during surgery. Every eye is unique – by conducting an accurate and detailed analysis, the iLASIK technology is able correct refractive errors with potentially higher accuracy.
During a LASIK surgery, a flap needs to be created before the cornea can be reshaped. In the past, surgeons would manually create the flap by hand using a microkeratome blade. At present, advanced lasers are used for flap creation instead. Utilized in over eight million procedures and cited in hundreds of scientific articles, the IntraLase iFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser is a comprehensive platform built on IntraLase Technology’s legacy of surgical precision. As compared to older methods, the IntraLase iFS is able to create LASIK flaps more precisely, uniformly, and accurately.
This laser reshapes the cornea to correct for refractive errors such as myopia and astigmatism. The STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser utilizes innovative technology to perform customized treatment:
Iris Registration technology provides a noncontact, automated method to correctly align and center treatment while allowing for instant re-registration in the event of intraoperative movement.
Variable Repetition Rate (VRR) delivers Fourier-reconstructed shapes with optimized ablation time while minimizing thermal impact on the cornea.
Variable Spot Scanning (VSS) technology incorporates an array of varying laser pulse diameters to ensure an accurate match between target and ablation shapes.
ActiveTrak 3-D Active Eye Tracking technology follows the eyes motions in three dimensions to capture more than 99.4% of eye movements.
ActiveTrak Automatic Centering technology locates and automatically sets the treatment center in relation to the pupil center.
Prices start from $3612.32 (both eyes, including GST)
Payment via interest-free installments are available for DBS, POSB, and UOB credit cards.
As compared of contact lenses, the cost of LASIK may be lower in the long run. You may save up to ~$28,980 lenses after LASIK.
