LASIK (stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a popular surgical procedure in Singapore to treat near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. With LASIK, patients are able to reduce, and in most cases, eliminate the need for contact lenses or glasses. The purpose of this website is to familiarize readers about the LASIK procedure and the risks involved. We also hope to educate our readers on Epi-LASIK, an advanced, no cut no cornea flap alternative to LASIK. You can also find a comprehensive listing of LASIK Surgery and eye clinics in Singapore. While we have taken great care in ensuring the quality of our content, readers are strongly advised to consult an opthalmologist for further information.
