LASIK---BE-FREE-TO-DO-THE-THINGS-THAT-YOU-LOVE-COLLAGE-CUT


Before LASIK

Reliance on glasses and contact lenses:
– Temporary vision correction
– Dry eyes from contact lenses
– Inconvenience during sports and daily activities

After LASIK

– 24/7 vision correction
– Unparalleled visual freedom

LASIK surgery takes only a few minutes, but can have a monumental impact on ones lifestyle. Unlike glasses or contact lenses which only correct vision temporarily, LASIK offers long-term, hassle-free visual freedom. Be free to do the things you love. Live life with new confidence, convenience and enthusiasm.


What is LASIK?

LASIK is a procedure that makes use of highly advanced lasers to reshape the cornea in order to correct refractive errors.Among the many vision correction methods around, LASIK is regarded as the gold standard. LASIK is popular because it has been shown to be predictable, accurate, and safe – with more than 20 years of proven results.

At Lee Hung Ming Eye Centre, we use the iLASIK suite by Abbott Medical Optics. This technology employs an all-laser vision correction procedure that uses proprietary technology to measure the unique characteristics of your eye, providing completely customized correction for exceptional visual clarity. Wavefront Customized iLASIK has gained a reputation for its exemplary standards; it is the treatment of choice for NASA Astronauts, US Air Force Pilots, and Navy SEALs.

What are the potential side effect and complications of LASIK?

LASIK is generally a safe procedure. The first generation of LASIK patients has not reported serious adverse effects to the eyes to date. The most common side effect after LASIK is temporary dry eyes, which can be treated using lubricating eye drops and artificial tears. The other common side effect is seeing glare and halo effects initially. All these effects rarely last for more than 3 months, though a minority may experience it for up to 6 months. The eye may also be over- or under-corrected after LASIK. The refraction results are usually obtained when the vision usually stabilizes after 2-3 months. Most patients are discharged at this stage without problems. Should the refraction results show residual refractive errors which correspond with some blurring of vision as reported by the patient, an enhancement treatment can be performed. This procedure is similar to the initial LASIK surgery except there is no cutting of corneal flap again. Rare complications of LASIK are corneal infections, retinal detachment and glaucoma, which may result in the loss of vision.

Therefore, it is of utmost importance to choose a LASIK surgeon based on the doctors experience, track records and the technology used.
