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 ...

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO LASIK IN SINGAPORE (2018)
February 1st, 2018

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.

LASIK COSTS IN SINGAPORE: AN EYE DOCTOR TELLS ALL
February 1st, 2018

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.

What are the best treatment options for high myopia with high astigmatism?

Dear Kenneth The first priority is to wait till you are at least 18 years of age before considering any form of refractive surgery. Children (including teenagers) should generally avoid any refractive surgery as their eyes are probably yet to have matured and may still experience...

How long does it take for vision to stabilize after ReLEx Smile?

Dear Lina Take heart that most patients will achieve relatively good vision by 1 week after ReLEx SMILE. Keep in mind that as with LASIK and PRK, ReLEx SMILE patients may experience fluctuating vision in the initial post-operative period. They often transition through a period of...

What should I do if I have overcorrected vision after LASIK?

Dear Jamie Do not fret. In any event that you have encountered the possibility of residual refractive error after TransPRK, it would be best to seek the opinion and assistance of your surgeon. What needs to be ascertained is your precise refractive error and that would be best do...

How old is too old for LASIK surgery?

Dear Annette There are no strict limitations for when a person is no longer able to have LASIK. For patients older than 40, the surgeon will have to take into consideration the presence of other age-related eye conditions like cataracts. Should cataracts be a cause of poor vision, th...

What type of eyedrops should I use after LASIK?

Dear Jamie I would assume you are referring to lubricating eyedrops. If so, you are right to say that some eyedrops are not suitable for use after LASIK. Very often, lubricating eyedrops contain preservatives. One of the common preservatives used is benzalkonium chloride (BAK). ...

Will steroid eye drops after ReLEx SMILE cause a harmful increase in eye pressure?

Dear Ash Steroid eyedrops are often used for a short period of time following LASIK or ReLEx SMILE to help with reducing post-operative inflammation. Your surgeon will usually check your intraocular pressure to determine that it is within the normal range both before and aft...

How long after ReLEx Smile can I start exercising again?

Dear Chris Most patients can resume cycling, jogging, gym and yoga 1 week after ReLEx SMILE. You are however advised to avoid water sports, hot yoga, jacuzzi and sauna for 1 month as the water is not clean enough. Also avoid contact sports like boxing, martial arts and badm...

What could be the cause of a brown spot in my eye, and how can I get rid of it? (photo)

Dear Ishak 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 t...

What should I do next if I had blurry vision for the past one year after a foreign body was removed from my eye?

Dear Rebecca One has to exam your eyes to ascertain what precisely was the original damage caused by the foreign body. Rather than speculate, I would encourage you to seek a second opinion and hopefully that would shed some light on your current situation. Possible causes of p...
