Clearvision Eye Clinic & LASIK Centre was established in 2001 by Dr. Tony Ho as one of the first private, dedicated LASIK centres in Singapore. The centre mainly focused on offering the main laser vision correction procedure known as the cut-and-flap LASIK. In 2004, Dr. Ho had the opportunity to perform the first surface-based, no cut and no flap Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) method, now known as epiLASIK. It was found that epiLASIK is less invasive than traditional LASIK as laser vision correction is done right from the cornea surface without cutting the cornea and creating a corneal flap. Because there is no corneal flap created, epiLASIK had no risk of flap complications at all – a major benefit against its cut-and-flap LASIK predecessor.
In June 2005, Dr. Ho was interviewed by Today Newspapers on epiLASIK, the new laser vision correction surgery procedure then. In November 2006, he also presented a medical study on epiLASIK at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre to fellow doctors. Being the advocate and pioneer of the surface-based epiLASIK surgery in Singapore and the region, Dr. Ho went on to write books, articles and scientific papers on the safe, surface-based epiLASIK. Due to the many benefits of epiLASIK, Clearvision started specializing only in epiLASIK since 2009 and stopped doing the cut-and-flap LASIK altogether. epiLASIK is now a well-known laser vision correction surgery procedure used by eye surgeons all over the world.
At Clearvision today, we now specialize in the advanced, surface-based Safe Sight TransPRK (Transepithelial PhotoRefractive Keratectomy) with the state-of-the-art Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser technology. Safe Sight TransPRK is superior to epiLASIK as there is no blade used to remove the outermost epithelial cells. Instead, the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser gently vaporizes the outermost epithelial cells and goes on to ablate cornea tissue seamlessly to correct your myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.

TransPRK was less scary than what I'd imagined. In my opinion, TransPRK is really the best procedure out there.
I can finally say, I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW! ADIOS GLASSES AND CONTACTS! Thanks Dr Ho & Clearvision team for this gift of 20/20 vision! :)
I want to thank Dr Ho & Clearvision team for allowing me to enjoy clear vision once again! I've always been wearing contact lenses since I was 16 years old and I would feel awkward or uncomfortable if I were to wear my glasses out of the house.
Hence I considered to opt for LASIK. After much research of the various clinics, I chose Dr Tony Ho as he seems very experienced and accompanied with good reviews. Clearvision also has the latest Transprk technology, which is a non flap based procedure.
Was quite anxious before the surgery but with the reassurance of Dr. Ho and the clear vision team, everything went along smoothly. Recovery went by without a problem after 4-5 days and soon my vision started to become clear! I can finally live free from my troublesome glasses and contact lenses. Definitely the best choice ever! Thank you once more Dr. Ho!
More than 5 years of lenses' wear & bad contact lens practise left me with two contact lens infection scares, during which my eye doctor warned me that I might lose my vision if I keep on having these infections.
They told me to consider LASIK instead. I felt scared to do cut and flap LASIK after hearing a lot of horror stories. I am also uncomfortable with living with a permanent flap in my eyes.
I've friends who had undergone LASIK many years back, but still had to put on lubricating eye drops due to dry eyes. Relex is basically cutting the eye as well, but to a smaller degree.
After a friend's recommendation & further research, I came across Dr Tony Ho from Clearvision, which has the Transprk technology that doesn't cut the eye AT ALL! Was very happy to find out that I was suitable for the surgery, despite slight cornea scars on my cornea.
I remember that I was a bundle of nerves on the surgery day. Both the staff and Dr Ho had to reassure me that it won't be painful as there are numbing eye drops. True enough, it was painless! After a short 5-10 mins in the operating theatre, I walked out with clear vision. Transprk was the best choice of investment ever. Thanks Dr Ho!
Despite its popularity, many questions, falsehoods and myths about laser vision correction still lingers with regards to LASIK.
As an eye specialist with a special interest and many years of experience in laser vision correction, I would like to bust some common misconceptions about LASIK that I often encounter.
