Whether you’ve acquired myopia (or nearsightedness) from hereditary factors, or you’ve developed it through exposure to risk factors, the disadvantages that go with this eye disorder are no doubt distracting, and even debilitating at times. People who are suffering myopia usually wear prescription eyeglasses as an initial corrective measure. Those who need to get rid of their glasses wear contact lenses whenever possible.
However, for people who want to permanently address this visual impairment, the most popular solution is to undergo a LASIK treatment, a cutting-edge technology which allows little to no pain and assures clearer eyesight within hours after the procedure.
There are several types of laser eye treatment such as LASIK, PRK, LASEK, and EpiLASIK. All of these surgeries use “excimer” laser to correct the vision by reshaping the cornea. If you are interested in getting rid of your eyeglasses or contact lenses for life, here are the prices of Lasik in Singapore:
– The price of the standard LASIK surgery ranges from $3,200 to $3,700 for both eyes. Usually, eye clinics offer package prices which already include 3 to 4 post-operative appointments and eye-plugs if needed.
– Another new and modern type of LASIK treatment is called the Wavefront / Topography Guided LASIK treatment, which starts at around $4,375. While this procedure costs half expensive than the standard procedure, it promises a more advanced measurement system using a 3-D map to guide the laser in reshaping the cornea. This allows the treatment of potential problems like glare, shadows, and halos, that standard LASIK can’t treat.
One thing that you’ll have to remember very well is to consult with an expert eye doctor, and always check for the credibility of the eye clinic. You have to be careful as well when deciding to choose cheaper packages for your own safety and protection.
