LASIK Overview

The liberating feeling of having crystal clear vision without having to wear glasses or contact lenses is what LASIK has brought to over 20 million people in the past two decades.

LASIK (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. We understand that the word LASIK—along with certain myths surrounding it—might sound daunting to some; This website will answer the questions that linger on your mind as its purpose is to familiarize readers with the LASIK procedure and the risks involved.

We also hope to educate our readers on Epi-LASIK, an advanced, no cut and 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 information, readers remain strongly advised to consult an ophthalmologist for further information. Generally, you are eligible for LASIK surgery if you are:

  • 18 years old and above (so that your prescriptions are most likely stabilized)
  • No significant power increase in the past year

  • Hyperopia (far-sightedness) less than 500 degrees
  • Astigmatism less than 400 degrees
