What is your advice about the No Touch Laser Epi-LASIK in Singapore?
Dear Dr Ethan
Thank you for sharing your LASIK experience. I am now considering going for a refractive surgery with Eagle Eye.
The “No Touch Laser Epi-LASIK” is one of the newer options available, I think. It seems similar to the Epi-LASIK though. Would you consider it a new procedure (and hence not recommended to prospective patients)? It is an attractive option since it combines the advantages of LASIK (shorter recovery time) and Epi-LASIK (flapless).
P.S Can I quote your name to enjoy a referral discount? 🙂
I’m glad you found the post useful.
To my knowledge, the No-Touch is what most clinics in Singapore offer when you go for Epi-LASIK, and it’s not considered “new” by any means. Nor is it truly “no-touch” – it’s just a different way of reshaping your eye epithelium. Instead of using alcohol, the procedure uses a laser.
My background isn’t in eye, so I’ve directed the question to eye doctors who will hopefully be able to add on and share their experience.
As with my previous advise though, it’s probably still best for you to chat to the doctor yourself to get a good sense of the different treatments available, and what suits you best. Because at the end of the day, which is the “best treatment” really depends on what is most appropriate for you.
Feel free to drop me a message via the contact form for the referral discount, as I believe EEC requires personal identifiers.
