On the first appointment with Dr Chan, he gave me a brief but comprehensive review on the procedures I was suitable for. I went with ReLEx SMILE in the end as I understand that it has a fast rate of recovery and truth be told, it really was! In 1 week's time, I went from -5.50 wi...

It was a great experience. Dr Chan was friendly and willing to answer any questions that I've had. The process was painless and fast. Immediately after the procedure, I was able to see quite clearly. It did feel a little cloudy. On the night of the procedure, I was able to watch ...

The main reason I decided to do an eye surgery was because I disliked wearing spectacles. I have multiple family members and relatives who have done LASIK and I have already decided that I wanted to do it in the future. I found Atlas Eye and came here for the evaluation. It costs...

My experience with Dr David Chan and the entire staff at Atlas Eye has been well beyond my expectations. At no point in time did I feel that my questions about the procedure or test results were a bother to Dr Chan. He took his time and even encouraged me to ask as many questions...

Dr Chan is a wonderful doctor who is detailed and meticulous. He also instills a sense of confidence in patients as he really knows his stuff. It is not just for my LASIK, but for my parents' cataract and other eye-surgeries, I observed the same high level of professionalism and ...

LASIK Costs In Singapore: An Eye Doctor Tells All

Singapore has one of the highest rates of myopia in the world, which probably explains why you're interested in this article. The good news for you? LASIK surgery is much cheaper today than it was 10 years ago. However, as evidenced by the number of people searching for "LASIK Singapore price" and "LASIK cost Singapore", it's clear that most people are still utterly confused by the pricing schemes for LASIK.

The Ultimate Guide To LASIK In Singapore (2019)

You’ve thought long and hard about getting LASIK done in Singapore, but don’t know where to start. You're also too lazy to sift through all the information on the internet, or to go for one of those LASIK education seminars.

I don't blame you at all - the range of choices in terms of LASIK procedures, pricing and technologies offered by various eye centres here in Singapore can be bewildering.

Stye usually occurs as a result of inflammation and poor oil flow in the oil glands around the eyelid margin. There are 2 main approaches to treating styes. Performing warm compress twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes often helps soften the contents in the stye, resulting in gr...

Dear Angeline Great question. Do understand that presbyopia occurs as a result of age-related changes in the lens of the eye. LASIK or any forms of laser vision correction (LVC) makes its effect felt by way of changes on the surface of the eye, namely the cornea. Hence, LVC cannot sp...

Dear Mindy , Laser vision correction (LVC) is intended to help achieve spectacles independence by way of correcting myopia, hyperopia and/or astigmatism. Generally speaking, patients should remain independent of glasses for both far and near distance until the mid to late 40s when m...

As with all cases of surgery, risks and complications must be managed to an acceptable degree. A surgeon would have to help the patient weigh the benefits vs the likelihood of complications before deciding on going ahead with surgery. Fortunately, the overall risks of post-lase...

It would be best to know what exactly are the side effects you are experiencing following cataract surgery. The comparison between multifocal lens and monofocal lens is down to whether the patient wishes to be spectacles independent after cataract surgery. If so, then the multi...

Dear wxuan97, Based on the level of your myopia, I would recommend Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL). The main concern for correcting your eyes with laser refractive surgery is the need to thin your corneas to a large degree which may give rise to greater risks of corneal ectasia a...

Enhancement after LASIK surgery requires time to ensure that the residual refractive errors are stable before going in for another round of laser. Usually, this may take as long as 4 months after the first LASIK procedure. What most surgeons are looking for are about 3 consecuti...

Key to treating someone with a certain pupil size is to ensure the laser treatment zone chosen is sufficient to accommodate that size of pupil. Whether one does it via LASIK, PRK and ReLEx SMILE would be based on other factors like corneal shape and corneal thickness. Main thing t...

Making any diagnosis from a photo is often challenging. Photos sometimes do not fully represent all the features of the lesion in question. An important question to consider is when the lesson was first noticed? Very commonly, long-standing pigmentation on the conjunctiva as seen on the photo can...
