Lasik Eye Treatment – Optimax Johor

by on Jan.13, 2012, under Health, Personal

The days with glasses is finally gone for me. I took up this custom LASIK operation for both of my eyes. With some financial support from my company, I managed to grab the package with Optimax Johor at price RM3900/eye. That’s RM7600 for both eye after cash discount.

I need to go for pre lasik examination to check if my eye is suitable for the lasik. That cost RM120 once . The prelasik test took about 4 hour because need to wait for the eye drop to take effect. I go lucky as my corner actually thicker than normal person. So my operation consider low risk.

Due to financially complexity, I need to split my operation into 2 times, one eye at a time. Most people will do both eye at the same time.

So on 28 December 2011, I go for my first eye operation, the doctor decide to go for my left eye first as it is my dominant eye. Basically the operation steps are simple, open your flap, apply correction and close it.. sound easy right..

Here is what happen on the actual day
1. You were ask to change to the operation gown.
2. They will perform cleaning on your eye and area around it
3. Apply anesthetic around the eye.
4. Go into operation room(very cool). Lie on the bed and nurse will cover you with blanket
5. Doctor will apply some sticker to stop your eye lid from closing. Then apply suction cups to stop your eye from moving.
6. The laser will start to cut the flap. I need to keep focus on the blinking red light.  around 60 second.
7. After the flap bring cut, doctor will guide you to another bed. I have to keep my eye closed.
8. Doctor open the flap do some checking and begin the correction. I need to keep focus on green light and I feel sharp ice cool thing pinch into my eye. 60 seconds
9. Doctor close the flap and do some check.
10. Leave the operation theater and ask to close eye rest for 30 mins.

I need to perform the eye test the next day. Doctor need to check the flap is healing properly. My left eye unable to see close distance for 7 days. Means unable to read computer screen or handphone.

I need to come back for follow up test after 7 days and 1month and 3month.
Checkup and my eye showing 20/20 which is perfect..

Update
23/6/2012 Six month passed and consider stable as per doctor. My current eye test result Left +25/-25. Right 0/0.
