People struggling with myopia or nearsightedness can’t live without either wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses to help them correct the refractive error and see clearly even from afar. However, even if these practical solutions are the most common ways to deal with myopia, they can become obstructive in some activities such as sports and other active events.
At the same time, wearing contact lenses can only be done for a limited period of time, thus it requires extra time to remove and put on everyday, which may seem to be bothersome, especially for people always on the go.
If you’re getting tired of wearing eyeglasses or too busy to have the time to maintain the lifestyle of wearing contact lenses, then you might want to start considering the option of getting a LASIK surgery. It is one of the recommended solutions to cure and get rid of myopia and its disadvantages for good. Unlike earlier forms of corrective eye surgery, this treatment boasts of less or no pain and clearer eyesight within hours after the procedure.
The price of LASIK surgery in Singapore ranges from $3,200 to $3,700 for both eyes. This is the price for a standard Lasik, and the package price also includes 3 to 4 post-operative appointments and eye-plugs (if you need them).
Nowadays, a more expensive type of LASIK procedure called the Wavefront/ Topography Guided LASIK treatment promises a more advanced technology in reshaping the cornea by using a 3D map measurement system. Unlike the standard LASIK procedure, the Wavefront LASIK surgery costs 50% more expensive because it ensures the treatment of other related eye problems like glare. The LASIK Bladeless (Wavefront/ Topography-guided) costs around $4,375.
Be wary, however, of cheaper package prices for the above mentioned LASIK treatments. You should consider the image and credibility of the eye clinic you are planning to get your eye procedure from. And of course, don’t forget to consult with your doctor before deciding on any procedure.
