Had my Lasik done by Dr Daphne Han, which was not only fast from First Consultation to the Actual Surgery itself, but also the entire procedure was well-explained in detail, with my pre-op concerns well addressed. Her assistants are all extremely helpful and friendly as well, making...

I conducted my assessibility check-up in Feb 2018 but due to work committments have only just completed my procedure last week. Dr Daphne presented the 3 options for me and I chose ReLex Smile. The procedure itself was done at SNEC, was fast and painless with minimal discomfort. Dr ...

Highly recommend the Bilateral ReLEx SMILE procedure with Dr Han, zero pain and super fast recovery! She was very patient and thorough explaining the different procedures available, clarifying any doubts and questions I have with regards to the surgery. Follow ups and checks were...

Dr Han was very patient and thorough. She explained the pros and cons of each type of surgical option, and helped me to make an informed decision on the best surgical option for me. I opted to do the ReLEx SMILE procedure as it suits my active lifestyle the best. It is bladeless and the incision is...

My SMILE procedure with Dr Daphne was very smooth and successful. She is professional and caring at every step along the way. Pre-op procedure was explained clearly, and the smile surgery was almost pain free and efficient.

ASK DR DAPHNE HAN: IMPLANTABLE CONTACT LENS

Implantable Contact Lens is another vision correction procedure available in Singapore. ICL surgery is simple, and takes about 10 minutes to complete. A soft, flexible gel-lens is inserted between the iris and the eye lens through a small incision.

Hi Kossay, Removal of an ICL is usually not a high risk procedure, although as with every surgery, a certain level of risk does exist like infection, inflammation and slight operative damage to surrounding structures and tissues. However, one thing for certain is that after removal your refrac...

Dear Cecilia, While many can tolerate mild cataracts, moderate to dense cataracts are effectively treated by surgical management. The success rate of cataract removal surgery in Singapore is very high nowadays, and it is a worthwhile treatment for those whose eyesight and lifestyle had been affec...

Hi Parlene, Typically, most clinics charge upwards of $10,000 for ICL surgery for two eyes. In general, the cost for ICL surgery depends on three main factors: The doctor performing the surgery Where the surgery is being performed The eye power being treate...
Consult Doctor
Dear Tracy, I'd like to breakdown both procedures for you to better compare them. ICL involves implantation of a soft, foldable lens into the internal part of the eye called the “sulcus”, which is a rather narrow space between the natural lens of the eye and the b...

Hi Erlina, In Singapore, the most common reasons for ICL surgery are: High myopia High astigmatism Thin or irregular cornea not meeting criteria for LASIK Patients with complications from previous LASIK needing correction Patients with regression of power afte...

Dear Kai Fai, ICL is safe for these sports after the usual recovery period of 4-6 weeks. During the post-operative recovery period, it is important to keep the eyes very clean and avoid contaminating the eyes in places like swimming pool or hot baths. In general, the risk of ...

Hi Joel, As a procedure that involves placing the ICL into the limited internal space of the eye, the main risks are to the surrounding structures during the surgery as well as post-surgery . Firstly, the clear, natural lens of the eye may develop a cataract due to the IC...
Consult Doctor
Dear Bei Ru, Currently I would only recommend one brand of ICL for those considering a phakic lens implant surgery ( that means with a healthy and intact natural lens in the eye), that is the Staar Surgical’s EVO Visian ICL, due to its positive safety track record. ...

Dear Si Jing, You do not have to be paranoid because ICL is a reversible procedure and can be quite safely removed through the original port of entrance. Hope this helps!
Consult Doctor
Hi Jeremiah, My advice is to choose a doctor who is not just skilled in the procedure but someone who is also able to offer an opinion from all points of view. Not all eyes are suitable for ICL, neither are all eyes suitable for LASIK, SMILE, or transPRK. Ideally, your doctor...
