LASIK, is a common refractive procedure for the correction of Nearsightedness or Myopia (a problem in reading), Farsightedness or Hyperopia (a problem in seeing things at a distance), or Astigmatism (Focus Disruption of Near and Distant Vision). With this vision correction technique, you will be able to get rid of your specs in just 15 minutes!



Your eyes are precisely measured to identify the perfect lens to suit your vision.

In some cases, a laser procedure may need to be performed before that to avoid the possibility of raised intraocular pressure.


Prior to the implantation, you will receive topical anaesthetic drops to minimise discomfort. You may also be administered a sedative.

Post that, the specialist will create two micro-openings in the edge of your cornea that will be used for positioning the lens.


To complete the procedure, the specialist will instill eye drops which will prevent inflammation and infection.

You will continue to use these drops for several days once you are home.

NOTE: Do not rub your eyes, especially for the first 3-5 days. If you experience pain or notice any sudden decrease in vision, contact your specialist without delay. A few routine eye checkups will be done to ensure everything is perfect.
