Not really informed about LASEK, can share for others on adv vs disadv.

Zero-flap doesnt necessary always produce the best result, there is a reason why LASIK is still the more popular method.

I did Lasek. No flap. Lasik more popular because you can see faster within a day. Lasek produce better result overall.

I did a laser vision correction. And believe me if the doctors are qualified, they will do everything perfectly and there will not be any stanchions.

I did my eye check for Lasik/Relex at Prof Muhaya Eye & Lasik Centre in April. Everything was ok, except for Dryness/Curvature of my eye.

Was informed that it should be 1.3 or below, but mine was 1.6 to 2.0.

So the doctor said to come back 1 mth's time to check again, in the meantime, put eyedrops (Systane-5 times a day & Artelac Splash-every hour)  to improve the dryness.
So I recently went to check again, so far the dryness hasn't improved.

Any other things/eyedrop i should try to improve the dryness of my eyes?
*
So just wanna update, I've been to the clinic 2-3 times since May (most recent one was last week 16 Aug):

- Good news is : my eyes dryness are improving, closer to 1.3,
- bad news is : still above 1.3, so I cant do relex smile / lasik yet.

So I need to come back again in 1 mth's time to check again, this time will check and consult the doctor & will get cornea specialist advice.

Some of the options they told me if my eyes still not suitable for relex smile are:

1) Do PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)
2) Implant Contact Lens


Questions:
Anyone here done PRK before? Can share your experience ? Based on what I googled, apparently this is the safest procedure among all 3 (PRK, Lasik, Relex Smile)
- Is it painful?
- Do both eyes at the same time? or 1 by 1?

I am also going through this.. it’s my 3rd month post surgery as well and suddenly one day I can’t even see near / far things properly and it’s extremely extremely cloudy and everything seems to be darker. I’m worried.

Anyone else experienced this? Will this go away?

Hi, anyone has any experience with Dr. Tan Niap Ming from Prince Court Medical Center? They are offering LASIK for 2 eyes for RM6,990. The machines that they are using are VisuMax Femtosecond Laser and MEL 80 Excimer Laser. Can anyone shed some light on me?

Relex Smile also offered in other places, if you happen to be from Kajang area, Prof Muhaya Eye & Lasik Centre is a good choice - http://www.pmelc.my/

they give you honest feedback on the suitability of your eyes for relex smile.
