Am I a suitable patient for Eye Laser Surgery?

Because each person’s eyes are different, your eye surgeon will select and advise you on the best eye laser treatment for you – choosing from LASIK, PRK or EPI LASIK to give you the ultimate vision correction.

What has been the long-term experience with LASIK eye surgery at Visiomed?

Over 25 000 eye laser surgeries have been performed at Visiomed since 1996.

Will my eyes deteriorate faster after LASIK surgery?

No, LASIK has no influence on the normal refractive changes of the eye.

If later in my life I develop a cataract, or need other eye surgery, is it still possible after LASIK?

Yes. All operations are possible after LASIK eye surgery. Always tell your eye specialist that you have had LASIK eye surgery.

What are the risks involved in LASIK surgery?

The risks involved in LASIK eye surgery are minimal if the procedure is performed in a systemised and careful manner as practiced at Visiomed.

What if my vision changes?

LASIK can be performed more than once. This is called LASIK enhancement. You can also wear cosmetic coloured contact lenses after your LASIK procedure, or reading glasses, when you can no longer read small print at a comfortable distance. LASIK does not treat presbyopia or eliminate the need for reading glasses due to age.

General Guidelines

  • A candidate must be 18 years old and above. If you are still studying or planning to spend some time with studies, it might be conducive to extend this period to after your studies, as vision can fluctuate much during this period.
  • Ascertain that the eye has properly developed and matured.
  • Vision has been stable for at least a year prior to surgery.
  • There is no evident infection or injury within the past year.
  • Candidates must not exhibit autoimmune disorders such as Lupus or Sjogren’s Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc.
  • Patient must have no history of herpes infections affecting the eye since LASIK may cause its recurrence.
  • No scars are present on the cornea or signs of Keratoconus.
  • Patient’s pupil must not exhibit a dry eye syndrome.
  • The use of certain medicines may cause visual side effects – ask your surgeon.
  • Candidate must not be pregnant or nursing.

Sentiments of a Good Candidate

  • Dislike his/her dependence on corrective lenses in order to have clear vision.
  • Poor compliance in wearing contact lens.
  • Participation in activities is restricted due to wearing of corrective lenses.
  • Able to adjust well to change.
  • Fairly relaxed person.
