How our experts perform Refractive surgery

There are several ways to get perfect vision without depending on your glasses or contact lenses. Consult our experts to know which one is the best for you.

Microkeratome flap LASIK

This procedure uses a special blade to create a thin flap on the cornea, which is lifted to reshape the underlying tissue for vision correction. After reshaping, the flap is put back in place.

Femtosecond flap LASIK

A precise corneal flap is made using a laser instead of a blade. The laser creates a flap of specific thickness and size, allowing for accurate vision correction by reshaping the cornea underneath.

Customised wavefront LASIK

This advanced procedure uses wavefront technology to map out any imperfections in the eye's optical system. With this detailed map, the laser reshapes the cornea to correct vision problems, resulting in clearer and sharper vision.

Contoura Vision

Contoura Vision employs a technique known as topography-guided mapping. Our experts use this technique to create a 3D map of your eyes, capturing even the most minute irregularities. With this highly detailed map, the laser can target specific imperfections with unparalleled accuracy.


The newest advancement in laser vision correction for eliminating the need for glasses is Epi Contoura Streamlight. Specifically crafted for individuals with thin corneas, this innovative procedure offers remarkable outcomes with a bladeless, flapless, and painless laser procedure.

Microkeratome Contoura

This procedure combines a microkeratome blade with Contoura technology to create a corneal flap and reshape the cornea for vision correction.

Femto Contoura

Femto Contoura utilises a femtosecond laser to create a precise corneal flap before applying Contoura technology for customised vision correction.


EVO ICL, or Implantable Collamer Lens, is a refractive procedure that corrects myopia (near-sightedness). It's a removable lens implant for the eye and an appealing alternative to LASIK and other refractive procedures.

Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive lens exchange is a surgery that replaces your eye's natural lens with a new one called an intraocular lens (IOL). This lens is customised to fit your eyes, like the lenses in glasses or contact lenses, but it's put in your eye permanently. After surgery, many people find they no longer need glasses or contact lenses or only require them for certain activities like reading.


While complications leading to vision loss are exceedingly rare, some temporary side effects like dry eyes or glare are common. Thankfully, these issues typically resolve within weeks or months, leaving you with the clear vision you’ve been dreaming of.

Recovery time varies from person to person, but most see notable improvement within days to a week. Full stabilisation may take weeks or months, so follow your doctor’s instructions closely and attend follow-up visits for the best outcome.

Certainly. If only one eye has blurry vision due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, LASIK can target that eye specifically. It’s crucial to schedule an initial LASIK consultation to determine the best course of action for your unique situation.
