Learn about LASIK Surgery in Singapore, Cataract Surgery, and Other Options for Vision Correction

A form of refractive surgery is called Lasik. Laser surgery is utilized in this procedure to correct refractive eyesight disorders. When your eye does not properly refract (bend) light, you have refractive error.

To see clearly, light rays must travel between your cornea and lens. The cornea and lens distort light so that it lands correctly on the retina. The retina transforms light into impulses that the brain subsequently translates into visuals. Your cornea or lens’s shape prevents light from bending properly when you have refractive abnormalities. When light is not focused properly on the retina, your vision becomes blurry.

Your ophthalmologist (or lasik surgeon in Singapore) will alter the shape of your cornea with LASIK by using a laser. The laser eye surgery enhances the focus of light on the retina. Astigmatism, hyperopia (farsightedness), and myopia can all be treated by LASIK (nearsightedness).

We always recommend starting this process with proper eyecare education. With any vision correction operation, it’s critical to comprehend the process, the advantages, the risks, and any potential side effects. Visit our website to find out more information about iLasik. You can read about KAMRA Inlay, LASIK, cataract, and refractive surgeries in your country region which are suitable for your needs with the information we have provided here.

What to expect after LASIK

Before The Laser Procedure

Your ophthalmologist and you will talk about your lifestyle-based visual needs. For instance, if you play sports, surgery can be what you need to enhance your sporting excellence.

Your ophthalmologist and you should also talk about your LASIK expectations. There is a chance that people who undergo LASIK with high hopes of achieving perfect flawless (spectacle freedom) vision will be let down. A lot will depend on individual medical and eye conditions. Most daily activities can be performed without corrective lenses thanks to laser eye surgery.

Your ophthalmologist will also conduct a complete eye examination to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for LASIK. He or she will do the following:

Run a vision test: It reveals how much refractive error you have and whether you are a suitable candidate for LASIK vision correction.

Look for additional eye issues: Your ophthalmologist will check to make sure you have no additional eye issues. This is so that other issues won’t interfere with your surgery or won’t make those other issues worse. For instance, some patients have extremely dry eyes and they may not be the most suitable.

Your cornea’s surface should be measured and mapped: Your ophthalmologist will measure the cornea’s surface and assess the thickness of your cornea. These measurements are utilized by your eye surgeon to program the computer-based laser that will be used during surgery.

Your pupil size should be measured: Your pupil size will be measured by our iLasik Surgeon. After LASIK, you can experience nighttime halos (rings of light) if your pupil is very large.

During LASIK

This laser eye surgery is performed in your ophthalmologist’s office or an outpatient surgical facility. Your cornea is reshaped by your eye doctor using a laser. Here’s what to anticipate:

  • Your eye will get numb as a result of the eye drops. Do not worry as this will go away within hours.
  • Your eye surgeon will attach an eyelid holder on your eye to prevent you from blinking. Additionally, a suction ring will be applied to your eye by him or her to prevent movement. Your eyelid will feel as though a finger is pressing tightly against it. Your vision will now become dull or completely opaque.
  • Your ophthalmologist creates a paper-thin flap in the corneal tissue using either a microkeratome or a laser. The flap is then raised and folded back by the lasik surgeon.
  • You will be instructed to keep your eyes fixed on a target light without moving them. Following that, the ophthalmologist will use a laser to reshape your cornea. The laser is a unique tool that has been configured with measurements specific to your eye.
  • When the ophthalmologist uses the laser, you will hear a clicking sound. Your eye surgeon will reposition the flap and smooth the edges after reshaping the cornea. Within two to three minutes, the flap affixes naturally, where it will then recover.


  • The ophthalmologist might cover your eye with a transparent shield or instruct you to sleep with one on for a few days. This will safeguard your eye as it recovers.
  • After the procedure, you should arrange to return home and relax or take a nap.
  • Your eyes can feel scratchy or as though they are burning for a few hours. To lessen dryness and speed up the healing process, you will be given specialized eye drops.

Our Lasik Surgeon’s 3 Steps Laser Vision Correction

Dr Natasha lim in operating room

Dr Natasha Lim was the pioneer in Singapore to utilize the most advanced iLASIK technology known as iDesign™ iLASIK™, which has a 5x higher resolution than its predecessor, Wavescan. Dr Natasha Lim specialises in customised treatments using Wavefront-Guided iDesign which benefits all her patients with superior night vision after LASIK surgery. iDesign™ iLASIK™ is also the technology used by NASA for their Astronauts and the US Navy for their Aviators.

Step 1: iDesign™ Advanced Wavescan

Modern technology used in Dr Natasha Lim Eye Centre           The iDesign Advanced Waves System provide the greatest precision on measuring irregularities in the eye

iDesign™ is the world’s most advanced Wavefront-Guided Aberrometer

The iDesign™ Advanced Wavescan system scans each eye over the pupil using 1257 data points to measure the wavefront of the eye, creating a unique map for treatment. It is the world’s most advanced aberrometer, providing the greatest precision in measuring irregularities in the eye. In addition to achieving spectacle independence, it improves visual quality and contrast sensitivity significantly in dim-light conditions.

Step 2: Intralase Bladeless Flap Creation

The gold-standard for modern LASIK flap creation is the bladeless technique using a femtosecond (iFS) laser system, also known as “All-Laser LASIK”. Dr Natasha Lim uses the world’s most advanced femtosecond laser, iFS, which creates a bladeless flap in 12 seconds using minimal energy for the speediest recovery and thinnest possible flap. This ensures long term safety and stability of the cornea. Dr Lim’s lasik surgeries are 100% bladeless, performed using a femtosecond (iFS) laser system.

Step 3: VISX Star S4 IR Excimer Laser

Iris Registration is necessary to compensate for cyclotorsion that occurs when the patient goes from the upright to the lying down position

Wavefront-Guided treatment by VISX Star S4 IR™ gives superior outcomes because the treatment uses iris recognition (IR) that ensures delivery of a well-centered treatment and variable spot-scanning that is more tissue-saving. The system provides tailor-made vision for each individual eye. The excimer laser treatment is applied under the corneal flap.

ViSX Star Excimer laser entirely eliminates myopia, presbyopia and astigmatism.
