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...

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.
