LASIK in Johor Bahru

Post by hopeful8 » Sun, 22 Jul 2007 10:18 pm

Has anyone done bladeless lasik (intralase) in JB?

Is it recommended to do there to save money or spend more to have it done in Spore?

Lasik surgery

Save money? How many pairs of eyes do you have? Just do it in Singapore with a reputable doctor.

There're RM2000/eyeball ops in Kuala Lumpur.
Save on all other things, but not this.

Did mine in Jan with Dr Lee Hung Ming. Still 20/20 now. Cost $5000 in total.
One of the best things to happen to me ;-)

did u guys have had dry eyes prior to that ?

if yes, how is it after the operation?

if no, did u have probs after the treatment ?

I have dry eyes and I read a lot about dry eyes after surgery. now in their offers they even include free eyes plugs, so that means it is a common thing...?

LASIK

Post by liual » Thu, 06 Dec 2007 10:57 pm

hey bao -

what is the name of the place in paragon - is it the lasik surgery clinic? which doctor did you use and recommend for lasik? i see from the website they charge $100 for an evaluation - i guess there is no place that give you a free consultation on whether you qualify for lasik or not... thanks for your help

Hi aadvark & dreampotion

it is a standard lasik. Not sure about the blade stuff.

It is immediate result, i did at 6pm, the whole procedure takes less than 15 min and the lasik took less than a min. I reach home around 8pm n took sleeping pill. On the very next morning, WOW it is crystal clear vision. I would say... no down time, no swelling, no complication etc... very simple and immediate effect.

I check their web, now they increase the price laio.

i did at optimax in city square after my friends did theirs there...

i am happy to report 6/6 vision after 1 mth plus... compared to a colleague who did at SNEC and has one eye still 150 degree myopia...

so not that dodgy la, but a hassle to get in and out across the causeway tho...

How much did you pay for the procedure? When did you do it?
