You can keep doing it as long as your cornea is thick enough.

Why not? Then I won't have to depend on visual aids anymore. Doc says I'm a perfect candidate for lasik because of my low myopia. Not much cornea needs to be cut.

Ok this is my experience. My doctor cousin recommend me for Lasik to one of his mentors in university. He told me this mentor of his is very experienced and did hundred of lasik surgery before when he was in Singapore Eye Centre. Now the mentor opened his own eye specialist clinic at Paragon – Apple Eye Centre. I visited the clinic to for consultation to check whether I m suitable for lasik. I went through all the tests – eye pressures, cornea thickness check etc. The doctor told me that he do not buy his own lasik machine because he told me that there are many unethical doctors around in this field. If they own their own lasik machine, very likely they will ask u to do it because they have to recoup the fixed cost they have put in. This especially the case even yr cornea issnt suitable for lasik or there is a lower percentage of regaining back to near perfect eyesight (I got a friend who did lasik and still have 100 degree shortsightedness for one eye and perfect for the other.. now she have to wait for the perfect one to go back to 100 -_-). As such, my doctor what he did when a patient need lasik is that he will rent the machine in other clinic and do the operation himself. So basically, I am paying for his lasik experience + renting of the lasik machine.
The day for lasik finally arrived – my doctor rented the operation room for lasik at a eye surgery clinic at Shaw tower. The operation took abt 10-15min or so. My eyes was taped and the outside was somehow “clamped” so that my whole eyes were exposed (kinda disgusting)… antiseptics was dripped. My doctor uses something like a litmus paper to clear away all my tears etc. The whole operation started. There is an assistant who did a countdown. I can feel the burning smell of the laser but cant feel the pain (I was very nervous at that point of time as I only can see a white light). 15min later everything was done, my doctor put a protective contact len on one of my eyes becos the eye is more sensitive and the lens prevent complication and germs from entering.
The first few hours were hectic…. I cant look at the sunlight. My eyes feel very sore… is like a rock in your eye socket… I will recommend just go back home and sleep or something so u wont think about it. The sensation will drop after a while. The first few days I am very sensitive to light (even looking at computer monitor etc). Things get better after a week or so. Up to now (6-8 month later), everything is fine for me… I can look at things very clearly. In conclusion, I am very happy with the operation lol.

But every machine has its quirks, if heng suay the rented one happened to have some unexpected behavior, then goodbye beautiful world. And this sort of reason sounds very much to be a case of sour grapes.

You have a weird sig, how you type the character ▓? And why the first few look different from the last few?
And which clinic are you talking about at mount E?

Juz did my lasik at Shinagawa this morning, now everything is clear but typing this on an illuminated monitor screen is a bit hazy.

I can say its totally painless, least the part that Dr. Lee insert the suction cup into my eyes where I feel some pressure on them. As the suction cup is being inserted into the eye I experienced the 'sudden-blackout-fainted' sensation (only for the particular eye) but surprisingly it's good as I cant really see nor feel whats going on with the laser cutting although the doctor says my suctioned eye is opening up good and big.

Will be going for my review tomorrow.

Hi,

For those who did at Shinagawa or other lasik ctr, how are the results? I hear very pleasing news from Kampong boi, would appreciate if more could share their lasik experience (bad/gd).

I went for the preview talk at Shinagawa, no pushy sales tactics tat force u to sign up or go for eye test (compared to LSC). Dr. Lee SB is patient to explain ur queries and doubts after e talk. The price is similar to what Kampong boi paid for. Compared to other lasik clinics, it is one of e cheapest. And also 1price for all conditions.

Of cos, we cant compare price alone. Quality, i think Shinagawa has some German brand Wavelight laser (and not the Alcom laser4000 brand u see on youtube). And also e skills of e surgeon. Dr Lee mentioned that he has a track record of thousands of lasik done, 1% rate of them require enhancement. (enhancement doesnt mean blind/failure, it just mean tat e 1% have to go back for further correction).

Would also like to ask ppl who done at Shinagawa, how long can the $40+ eye drops last? And do you need to use e eye drops forever?
