try eagle eye centre.

Anyway i wanted to go for lasik too till i saw this video

"A patient with a bad LASIK flap requires removal of the entire flap, which disintegrates as the surgeon tries to lift it. The LASIK flap never heals and top surgeons have stated that they don't know how long it takes to bond with the eye again--no one has lived long enough yet! "

Done mine at Shinagawa at Wheelock by Dr Lee, the only eye surgeon there. Very good experience, staff are helpful and friendly. Only one price at S$2,600 plus for both eyes everything in.

what you need is lasik with intralase (aka intralasik or all laser or blade free). and to get the best of the best, add wavefront.

in a nut shell, lasik is lasik. intralase is the bit where it is using laser to cut the flap. if it is no intralase, the flap will be cut using a blade (microkeratome). and wavefront is a custom set for your eyes during the laser remodeling.

suggest you do lots of research on this subject before you take the plunge.
