I have been coming for treatment for my right eye for a few years now..From the time I enter the clinic till my appointment is done, I have always had first class treatment from Doctor Mano and his TEAM and nurses! Each and everyone of them are kind, helpful, understanding, patience, professional , with all our frustration and fears. Talking to Dr Mano's team, I hear nothing but high respect and great words of praise for Dr. Mano. Good team work and spirits. I did one laser and countless jabs in my right eyeball, doc Mano is very kind and professional and has taken good care of my eye as it is healing more and more but though I know I won't get 100% vision I am happy with the good news given. I would highly recommend Doc Mano and team THEY ARE TRULY THE BEST!!!

I highly recommend Dr Chan Jan Bond. On top of being an excellent surgeon, he is also a caring and kind doctor. I had been postponing cataract surgery as the thought of having surgery in my eye was daunting. Dr Chan took the time to explain the surgery in detail and cleared all my doubts. A short 2 weeks from then, I had completed cataract surgery on both my eyes and am very happy with my vision. The whole experience had been pleasant and comfortable. I'm so lucky to have found Dr Chan. Many thanks to him and everyone in ISEC who made this journey easy for me.

一开始打算做LASIK,之后发现Optimax眼科的ReLEx SMILE 只需要打开4mm的眼角瓣, 如果LASIK是需要开一半的眼角瓣(个人觉得伤口越小就越容易照顾和修复)。这个手术过程大概只需躺着大概10分钟就完成了,需要配合医生的指示。谢谢Optimax团队细心与耐心的解释与我的主科医生Dr.Adeline Sia. 摆脱了戴了十多年的眼镜,现在脱下眼镜看到的都是4K高清的画面😁

    What you need to know about Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) in Kuala Lumpur

    Eye Anatomy: Cornea and Iris

    LASIK (laser in situ keratomileuses), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery, is a type of refractive eye surgery to correct vision issues. The procedure reshapes the cornea in order to allow light that enters the eye to be properly focused onto the retina for better and clearer vision. It is mainly performed to treat hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism. In some cases, LASIK may also be performed on people with mild to moderate cases of refractive errors.

    LASIK surgery is basically pain-free and quick. The results enable you to have improved vision eyeglasses or contact lenses. The procedure can be performed on people between the ages of 21 and 40. Sometimes, people over 40 years old can also undergo this procedure.

    It is important to be aware that LASIK is not for everyone. There are some cases where patients are not recommended to undergo the procedure, particularly those with keratoconus, immune system disorders, large pupils, advanced glaucoma, eye issues caused by diabetes, past ocular herpes infection, and dry eyes. Make sure to consult with your eye doctor before considering undergoing this type of surgery.

    Before LASIK, you may have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism and you are probably dependent on eyeglasses or contact lenses. Wearing either eyeglasses or contact lenses limits your activities. After LASIK, you can have a clear vision and live an active lifestyle, such as participating in sports. The procedure will significantly improve your quality of life.

    MyMediTravel currently lists 6 facilities in Kuala Lumpur offering Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

    What Does The Procedure Involve?

    Before the surgery, your eye doctor will give you an instruction on how to prepare for the surgery. Your cornea will be measured and your medical history will be evaluated. If you regularly wear contact lenses, you will have to stop wearing them completely for at least a few weeks before the procedure as contact lenses can change the shape of your cornea.

    During LASIK, you lie on your back on a reclining chair. The procedure is performed under topical anesthetic, which will numb your eyes. An instrument is used to hold your eyelids open.

    Your surgeon uses a small surgical tool called a microkeratome or uses a femtosecond laser to cut a small hinged flap away from the front of your eye (cornea). The hinged flap is then folded back to access the underlying cornea. After this, your eye doctor reshapes your cornea using a programmed laser. The cornea is reshaped so light entering your eye can focus more accurately on your retina for improved vision. Once your cornea is reshaped, the flap is put back into place. The flap normally heals without any stitches.

    How Long Should I Stay in Kuala Lumpur for a Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) Procedure?

    LASIK is often performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can leave the hospital once the effects of topical anesthesia and sedation wear off. The procedure itself may take 30 minutes to complete for both eyes. However, you should not leave Kuala Lumpur immediately after you are discharged. The recommended length of stay is around 3 to 5 days to allow your body to recover, as well as to attend a follow-up checkup. During the checkup, your eye doctor will evaluate the health of your eye and visual acuity.

    What's the Recovery Time for Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) Procedures in Kuala Lumpur?

    During the day of the procedure, you may experience hazy or blurry vision. However, your vision will improve over the next couple of days after the procedure. If your job is not physically demanding, you should be able to go back to work within 2-3 weeks after the procedure. Your eyes will continue to heal and improve for about 6 months after LASIK.

    What sort of Aftercare is Required for Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) Procedures in Kuala Lumpur?

    Make sure you follow all instructions that your eye doctor gives you to achieve the best result and to avoid complications. You may have to refrain from doing any strenuous activities during your recovery period in order to ensure that your eyes heal properly. Always protect your eyes from injuries because your eyes are usually more susceptible to traumatic injuries after LASIK. You may have to attend regular follow-up visits to check your vision, but this is normally done with your local eye doctor.

    Remember that LASIK does not prevent you from getting other eye diseases, so always protect your eyes. Eat healthy food to maintain the quality of your eyesight, wear a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from sun rays, take breaks when you are working on the computer or using your cell phone do not strain your eye, get enough sleep after a long day, and visit your eye doctor regularly.

    What's the Success Rate of Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) Procedures in Kuala Lumpur?

    LASIK offers a very high success rate. Studies revealed that 95% of patients with nearsightedness can achieve 20/40 vision following their surgery, and about 80% of patients no longer need to use glasses or contact lenses.

    The results you will get depend on several factors, including your specific refractive error. Those with low degree nearsightedness usually achieve the most successful result. The results are less predictable on people with high degree farsightedness or nearsightedness, along with astigmatism.

    Some LASIK patients require a second surgery for enhancement because the surgery results led to an under-correction. In some very rare cases, some people’s eyes can slowly return to the level of vision they had before surgery due to certain conditions, such as another eye problem, abnormal wound healing, and hormonal imbalances.

    LASIK also carries some risks that you need to be aware of, including dry eyes, glare, double vision, halos, under-corrections, overcorrections, flap problems, astigmatism, regression, vision loss, and vision changes. Make sure to talk to your eye doctor about the risks.

    Are there Alternatives to Laser Eye Surgery (LASIK) Procedures in Kuala Lumpur?

    The main alternative to LASIK is Phakic intraocular lens implants and Epi-Lasik. With Phakic intraocular lens implants, the corneal layers are not peeled or cut. Instead, an artificial lens made of silicone or plastic will be implanted to improve your vision.

    In Epi-Lasik, your natural lens is removed using a laser and replaced with an artificial IntraOcular lens. Since the artificial lens stays clear and never ages, the results last longer than other refractive procedures.

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 05/01/2021.
