Ive have some question regarding the above surgery, i heard from some people that Lasik causes complications as you age? Is that true? Plus, if i were to go for the surgery, does that mean i can watch TV very close, read book in the dark all these doesn affect my vision any more?

Sorry, no experience yet.

Even if i have done lasik, no people who get old yet. A numbers of my friends went through it, at least they are feeling very great now without contact lens or spec.

since they are cutting the lense of your eyes, will people look at your eyes abit differently? as in like your eyes will look abit funny?

and can give reasons why they went for it?

and surely there must be some cons to it. only matter to the person if the pro outweigh the cons.

well...you need to apply eye drops every few hours for a while after the surgery (extra $$)
troublesome, but these are for recovery, so LL

and i think my face looks fatter w/o specs, but that one also LL :s13:

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.
