LASIK (Laser-assisted in situ Keratomileusis)

LASIK is a well known refractive surgery for more than a decade. With relentlessly developed technology in Wavefront laser treatment, LASIK surgery proves safety, accuracy and satisfied results with minimal side effects and discomfort. With a combo of Excimer Laser (a laser reshaping the cornea) and Microkeratome (a machine creating a flap in the cornea), the procedure is quick and you can see immediate result.

For those who are not a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery, we also offer other types of refractive surgery that helps improves your eyesight, please e-mail us for more information.

Who can have LASIK?


Anyone who are near or farsighted or has astigmatism can benefit from LASIK surgery. You need to be healthy in general in order to undergo LASIK surgery, however, there are some medical concerns that may disqualify you.

Your eyes have to be healthy. If you have any condition that may affect how you react to the surgery or recover such as chronic dry eyes or conjunctivitis, you have to wait until the condition is cleared. Other severe mal-vision conditions, such as cataracts, keratoconus and uncontrolled glaucoma, may disqualify you completely.

You have to be an adult. You have to be more than 18 years old or in some cases 21 years old. Younger clients will have to be approved by the doctors case by case.

You must have stable eye vision for at least a year. Your eye doctor will tell you if your prescription is stable or not. Usually, eyesight tends to stabilize during your 20s.

You must not be pregnant. Hormones fluctuation during pregnancy can affect the cornea’s shape as well as may dry up the eyes, as well as some prescribed medication may be risky to the baby. It is recommended to wait after a few months after delivering until your body stabilizes back to the normal state.

You must not have degenerative or auto immune diseases. Such as Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, HIV, and AIDS. The result of the surgery is likely to be unsatisfying if your body cannot heal properly. Certain risks are acceptable depending on each doctors’ opinion.

Your eye sight should not be too extreme. For example, if you have very high myopia, LASIK may smooth out too much of your corneal tissue, otherwise, you may opt for other procedure such as artificial lens insertion.

What happen before and during the surgery?

You will have an elaborate eye examination before the surgery which takes around 3 and a half hours. This includes pupil size measurement, corneal topography, intraocular pressure measurement, refractions and other tests to determine if your eyes are healthy enough for the procedure, what kind of vision correction you need and how much laser ablation is required.

LASIK is a very quick surgery, taking only 5 minutes (Length of the procedure depends on your prescription). Numbing eye drops will be applied and a retainer will be placed under eyelids to keep the eye open, however, one eye will be done at a time. The flap on your cornea is created and a pulse of Excimer laser is sent to reshape your cornea. Then the cornea flap will be back in place.

After the surgery, for nearsighted patients, the cornea should be less curvaceous and vice versa for farsighted patients. For those with astigmatism, the laser will smooth irregular cornea’s surface into normal shape.

What to do after the surgery?

A protective eye shield will be applied right after the surgery to prevent rubbing or touching the eyes areas. You should have someone to drive you home and take a good rest as much as possible. The doctors will prescribe some medications in case of discomfort.

The first follow-up would be 1 day after the operation and the second is 1 week to have your eye sight measured and to monitor the healing process.

Strenuous activities should be exempted for at least a week and eye rubbing must be avoided at all time. You should follow the doctor’s post surgical instruction strictly to prevent infection. After 2 weeks, eye makeup and swimming are allowed.
