“Many clinics started offering LASIK surgery and advertised aggressively because it was good money. The clinics charged in the range of S$2,000 to S$3,000 per eye for the 15-minute procedure. Some even threw in discounts if you did both eyes together.”
“But when the dust settled, reports began appearing in the local media about botched jobs and opthalmologists claiming to have to do repair jobs. In the end, the Ministry of Health had to intervened and came up with stricter guidelines for the ads”, he continued.
LASIK Surgery Singapore begins with an introduction to LASIK, including its advantages over other types of refractive surgery. It then continues to provide detailed information about the procedure itself, and what to expect during recovery and post-operative reviews with the surgeon.
More importantly, the website warns about the many potential risks of LASIK like dry eyes, inflammation of the cornea and night-vision problems. It also encourages readers to enquire thoroughly about the surgeon’s background and services offered, and not solely base the decision on price alone.
“Nevertheless, we do provide a cost comparison table so that our readers have an idea about the price differential between the clinics and for the different types of procedures”, added Larry.
Finally, the website also provides a comprehensive listing of LASIK clinics in Singapore.
