yea, i also want to know the best price, maybe go for consultation first.
Its very subjective la i find. You go to NUH eye centre for consultation of course they say theirs is the cheapest , if you go Paragon LSC , they say the same thing.... i found out one eye centre, maybe Shinagawa could be a better choice? Anyone got expierence going there?


BTw, since Lasik is a new technique (since 1997), there is no garantee that complications will not appear when you age..etc: Im now 22, i do lasik ..later when im 55-65, my eyes developed Mangankyo Sharingan how? I don't want to fall in to darkness le during my golden years >_<

I just did mine last week at the Lasik Surgery Clinic as well.

My degree is rather high, 700+ plus another like 175 astig. So I took the intralase wavefront.

Did on day 1. Day 2 evening can drive for follow up. Day 3 can go back to work. Eye sight was close to 6/6 on the second day and for my degree, considered very good.

No regrets. Thos who wear high power specs, you will realise you tend to get headaches. No more. Finally I can get through the day w/o headaches. You sleep better, think better and function better. And because there is less strain on your eyes, looking at computer screens no longer hurts.

Worth every cent.

Haaa. They are quite pleasant.

Good. Best investment I made.

I can't imagine through the day without feeling tired or having a headache.

Now its like I am given a second life wooooooo.

Thinking back at all the dumb decisions I made, things I said when I am tired... really.... should had done this long ago.

Please do some research before asking. There are downside to it. For one, eye dryness is one of the issue. If your eyes are too dry, they won't even do it for you. Another downside is your night vision might be slightly affected. But its a rather safe surgery on the whole.

i am going for the talk-cum-Q&A this thursday and i if i do research, i dont think i need to ask any more. i go for the Q&A to ask questions, and the doc cant be telling me you go do research first, who's the surgeon here, me or you?

Well I do not have the statistics for that.

Like all medical procedure, there is a risk involved. But of course not to the extent of like 50% between living or brain damage sort of risk.

I was told (I recall) there is a 3-5% risk of a need for enchancement for my degree. Is this high? It may look low but you might just be the 1 out of 100. Will you take the risk? This is your call.

This kind of thing cannot save $$.

Got for the most suitable procedure, not the cheapest.
