IS LASIK FOR YOU?

LASIK is one of the most popular methods for near-permanent vision improvement because of its minimal downtime and quick recovery period. Since it was first approved in 1999, LASIK has been regarded as a safe and successful method of vision correction.

LASIK surgery has also advanced steadily over the years; the technology used to measure your refractive error prior to surgery has become advanced and corrections can be optimised to your needs.

You will be Eligible for LASIK if you:

  • Are at least 18 years old.
  • Have had a stable vision prescription for at least 1 year.
  • Are in good general health.
  • Have no existing eye diseases (eg. cataract, glaucoma, diabetic eyes, retina problem).
  • Have sufficient corneal thickness.
  • Are not pregnant. You can, however, proceed with LASIK 2 months after delivery.

Possible Risks & Side Effects
Temporary side effects do occur after LASIK, although uncommon. The most common temporary side effect you may experience is dry eyes. This may last a couple of months after the surgery.

Another common temporary side effect is night vision problems, which manifest as haloes, starbursts and glares lasting between 9 and 12 months. The risk of infection after surgery is also possible, though generally low – 1 in 10,000 people. In unlikely instances of infection, seek immediate treatment as delayed treatment may lead to vision loss.
