i did it in JB, city square next to the causeway. The clinic is called optimax. I only dared to go, cos i had 2 frens who had it done there. i opted for the cheapest - standard lasik because i just qualified as a candidate.suuz wrote:AADVARK?
the lasik....where did you do that?? and what was the price?
what do i mean by just qualify? the cheapest form of lasik requires that your cornea be at least 530 µm thick and pupil diameter less than 7mm for it to work. If it's not within criteria you have to opt for the customised lasik or wavefront, both more expensive procedures.
my cornea was exactly 530 µm thick and my pupil diameter was exactly 7mm wide. i was advised to do the more expensive procedures so that I won't risk any side effects. but since i was strapped for cash, i did the cheapest one anyway. any side effects? well, i have experienced minimal halo effect when my eyes are dry, but it's no where as bad as what i experienced with my myopia and astigmatism. So i am spectacle-free now and really enjoying it
cost of standard lasik in Optimax was around SGD 1450 with free post-op treatments and free pre-checkup. Cheapest i found in sg was SGD 2500 for standard lasik at LSC at Paragon, not inclusive of post-op treatments.
