Yes or no?

image from here

The above image is about LASIK surgery, a type of surgery to correct short sighted and astigmatism.


I've been considering to undergo this surgery to solve my short sighted problem. For your infor, I've been wearing glasses since Form One, which is already 14 years. I have to say it's somehow troublesome to wear glasses and no doubt contact lens came in rescue, it's the best-est if we can chose not to wear glasses/contact lens and still have perfect eye sight!


I have been asking around about this LASIK surgery. Most people who did it have no problems after the surgery. As far as I know, KL has better trusted doctors who perform LASIK. Though the surgery takes only about 10 mins for both eyes, I still feel a lil scared.... =_=



Comments anyone?

  2. Hayley,
    I think you look better without glasses.But laser surgery is something else. can be scary. I have come across at least two friends who had done it.

  3. This very common nowadays but make sure you get a professional doctor and take enough rest after surgery!My sis went treatment for twice and spent almost SGD2K+ but it doesnt solve her sight problems (but may be her condition is worst la cause she high diabetes).

    p/s: I heard it no pain or wat.. so don't worry so much! God Bless...

  4. So long (whatever it is) you feel comfortable about, the laser surgery now is better and more advance now, so no worries...

  5. There are those isolated cases where the surgery is not successful. And there are a lot of satisfied customer too.

    So do more survey, ask more people and get more feedback. That should gather more information than you needed.

  6. I prefer to wear glasses although I did consider going for this laser surgery many years back. LASIK has been around for quite some time already so it should be safe and reliable. My FIL did it a few years ago and so far he's ok.If you really want to go for it, just do it :)

    ChloeRuoyi, my friend told me the same thing. This should be very safe now.

  21. Do update about your decision. I am also interested but scared to do it. My sis got it done after her son pulled off her nth pair of spectacles. She now rolls her eyes a lot because she says they are dry.
