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 L...

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...

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! :)

What is Safe Sight TransPRK?

youtube video preview


Safe Sight TransPRK is a vision correction procedure that is non-invasive and that does not need a corneal flap to be created. TransPRK is short for Transepithelial Photorefractive Keratectomy.

TransPRK can help patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, or for patients with thin corneas. A consultation with an ophthalmologist will help determine if the procedure is right for you. Do tell your ophthalmologist and medical team if you have had any prior vision issues or procedures done in the past.

Cost of Cataract Surgery In Singapore: As Told By An Eye Doctor

Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye that has become 'cloudy'.

In this article, I'll break down the cost of cataract surgery in Singapore and what affects its cost.

Yes, it is possible for a Lasik flap to be dislodged or displaced even 10, 15 years after a Lasik op. This is because a cut Lasik flap is not stitched or glued back - the corneal flap only adheres by tissue pressure. Thus, you can say that a Lasik flap never fully heals. If you h...

It is best not to let tap water or any other substances (and that includes sweat, make-up etc) get in contact with your eyes for up to 5 days post epiLASIK. This is because there may be germs which can cause you to get an infection. After 1.5 weeks post-op, it is definitely...
