Lasik prices dropping immensely...is it true??

Postby Miss Swan » Tue, 29 Aug 2006 3:50 pm

Just early this year I had a colleague who spent 5K on her Lasik operation.
She did it at SNEC I think.

Now I see this:

http://www.lasiksurgeryclinic.com/lasik ... .jsp?id=30
(It's a private clinic so I'll understand if they can actually offer low prices)

I also see this:
http://www.singhealth.com.sg/Internatio ... ndicative/
--> Myopia surgery (LASIK, single eye) USD850 - 1,300 Day Surgery SNEC
That comes up to S$1400-2200/eye

And a friend's friend who had Lasik done paid 1.2K/eye.

Wow! These prices are much lower than my early perceived market average of $2.5K/eye...
Is there something that I'm missing out, or are the prices really dropping?

hey , just to share with you,I just got back today from my 1st consultation and it was with Dr Wee Tze Lin..from SNEC..ok he was cool, made me feel very comfortable.I paid $150 for the consultation.

And since he is a Consultant, I have to pay $1445+ 5 % GST.

Hey that's a good price! Your $1445...that's just for one eye right? If both eyes... only $3K!

Awesome...

Yeah ok lah, actually they told me $1320 over the phone,excluding 5%GST. but when I got there yesterday they mentioned $1445, cos since my degree is too high, they need to use another machine.

I just got back from the check up on the lasered eye n the post op consultation costs me $42.

But you know the feeling is awesome,,,cos I never imagined that from such a high degree,Dr Wee, cld narrow it down so much. :P

Planning for that next year. SNEC's price is comparable to KL's. Especially the wavefront-guided LASIK.
Goatboy will always cherish his former goatgirl.
But the world is full of fluffier ones.
