I've gone through the LASIK in one of the famous LASIK center in malaysia. but the outcome is not so good.
i've went back for follow up for 3 months but still no improvement at all.
so, plan to find an eye specialist to see what's my problem.

Any recommendation for a good eye specialist? preferably at KL or PJ area.

THONEH or tun Hussien Onn National Eye Hospital, is a semi government hospital. Some of the Dr / not all, are quite inexprience in dealing with more complicated cases.

Dr. Chuah Kay Leong at TTDI Optimax is an expert in cornea-related matters. He has performed 1000s of Lasik surgeries as well as my Epi-Lasik surgery 2-3 weeks ago and I'm healing very well so far with little or no complications. You can try him if you want. It costs like RM200 to schedule an appointment with him though.

Can try going to UKM medical centre (formerly known as HUKM) in Cheras. They've got a good Ophthalmology team. They have a private wing, which u need to pay at a higher rate. But u can get an appointment almost immediately.

Otherwise, get a referral letter from a doctor (can be from the normal GP clinics) to see the Ophthalmology Clinic. However, the waiting list is slightly longer, but u still get the same treatment from the same doctors. Just the the charges lower.

LASIK or any refractive correction surgery (Incidentally even lasers are surgery) are cosmetic procedures. Though lasik or other forms of corneal laser surgery are touted to be the safest, because they remove tissue from the cornea this is far from the truth. Also what is removed cannot be corrected back.

Sadly, after the surgery if you've lost some vision quality once the cornea is healed, there is probably no reversing it. There is a lot of publications and results of studies of lasik that is not revealed to the customers of this cosmetic procedure.

Also it is sad that this business is so lucrative that it is not ethically overseen and self regulated. Even the authorities do not seem to bother to enforce current legislation that is in force on their advertising.

There are a lots eye specialist centers in KL and PJ like Vista, Optimax, ISEC, Advance Vision, Excel View and so on.

As eyefly say, this business is so lucrative that it is not ethically overseen and self regulated. Do not simply attract by the advertising and go for the surgery without any information, because it is your eyes and u have to take care it carefully. There is no second chance for u to reverse it when u get eye disease, even your eye power.

I think that Doctor is the most important to help u to make decision, u will lose confidence If the Doctor is inexperience. In my opinion, Doctor Stephen Chung in Optimax is a experienced doctor, other than that im not sure.

How is your condition now? Have u manage to find out what wrong with your corneal?

I'm a post-LASEK patient. Suffering post-LASEK complications for almost 6 years. Seen about 20+ specialist in Malaysia & Singapore. No one are willing to tell me the true until I meet up with DR JERRY TAN in Singapore. Currently, preparing to file a lawsuit.

Don't go any doctors from Optimax.... and don't go to DR CHING WENG SENG (no ethic)....

I was very interested to do Lasek. Even went for evaluation. Thank God that I found a very good ophthalmologist for a second opinion who warned me against lasek. Lasek surgery nowadays has become a major source of income especially to the eye centre that provide such services. They look at it more commercially rather than clinically. My Ophthalmologist is a harvard medical school graduate specialised in Refractive Surgery and despite that, his work ethic is good that he encourages his patient for Lasek only when their eye condition allows them to. so for those who are in doubt, i would recommend you to see this doctor

KL Eye Specialist Centre, Kepong 62500077


Went to KL Eye Specialist Centre this morning for secondary opinion (first opinion from SDMC) on my eye condition after reading the above posting. That's not the only factor involved however, another factor is: it's relatively near to my house.

Took a taxi to the centre (I foresee that after an eye examination, I wouldn't be able to drive because of the eyedrop medication will cause my pupil to dilate), and it's located across the road from Jusco Kepong.

Filled up a form and was called up to see the doctor in 20 minutes.

The doctor enquired about the history of the condition, and informed me that he will need to do some testing. Asked me to wait outside. 5 minutes later a nurse asked me to go into the inspection room. Did Snellen chart test, and then lens test to check if I need glasses (I don't). The nurse informed me that now she needs to put the eyedrop medication to dilate my pupil, and will take some 20 minutes and few drops over 5 minutes interval to fully dilate my pupil. Even showed me a model of an eyeball to explain.

So after 4 drops in 20 minutes, the doctor called me in to inspect my eye. I don't know what is the machine called, I have to rest my chin on a contraption, there's red LED in the centre, light and the doctor uses a kind of magnifying glass. Around 8-9 minutes of testing, the results:

1. CSR (Central Serous Retinopathy) - was told I have this, similar to what I've been told by SDMC.
2. Occurs in Type A personality - was told the same thing by SDMC,
3. 60% patient will heal in 3 months, 80% in 6 months, 100% in a year - SDMC didn't tell me this. Was only told by SDMC that the condition will heal by itself: which is too general. For me.
4. OCT Scan - another thing that SDMC didn't tell me. The doctor further explained that eventhough the condition will heal in time, but how do a patient knows that the condition is healed? The doctor told me that I need to go for OCT scan, and that there are only 2 places (doesn't specify where, but I assume in KL) that can do OCT scan: one of them is the Serdang Hospital (SDMC doesn't have the facility). He wrote me a referral letter, gave the numbers to call and explained how can I go about making an appointment at the private wing of the Serdang Hospital.
5. Billed RM125 - SDMC billed me for RM2xx and RM3xx for two visits to determine my eye condition.

Verdict:
Very satisfied with my visit. Fast, and there is certainly more staff per patient ratio (I counted 5 nurses at the counter at one time), so they can afford to give better care unlike a busier hospital like SDMC. The doctor tells it as it is: he have no OCT scanning facility, but that didn't deter him to inform me that I need to do the OCT scan, and the fact that I need to do it somewhere else. Nurse took time to explain any procedure that they want to do, even eyedrop medication. Doctor m-a-y-b-e thinking I need further convincing (you know, I'm the type of person who brings a newspaper article about an eye condition to a doctor, you know my type) even opened up his Harvard text book (still got highlighted texts, maybe from his student days) and showed me what the book said about CSR. Fee is relatively competitive also, absolutely lower than SDMC. Will go there again.

There is a new website to educate and inform people about good ophthalmologists and all other ophthalmic conditions for the general public in Malaysia. You can post a question on the facebook website too for some free advice.

http://www.facebook.com/myeyespecialist

The related website would be www.malaysiaeyespecialist.com

There was once when I had chalazions removed one year after another (same eye). Both at THONEH, different doctors. Costs about RM100 each. Both times were ok. Is there something specific you would like to ask?
