Every few years, a ground breaking procedure becomes available. There was PRK followed by LASIK and now there is the Visian Implantable Contact Lens (Visian ICL™) from Switzerland. This is a revolutionary advancement as it is reversible and causes no damage to your natural eye.
The first Visian ICL™ was successfully implanted in 1998 in Europe. Now, Visian ICL™ in Singapore is available through The EyeClinic.
Worldwide, over 500,000 lenses have been implanted since then. The procedure is taking off very rapidly now, because of its excellent long-term results both in terms of efficiency and safety.
Have you been turned away from LASIK or PRK because the doctor diagnosed you with keratoconus? Well that does not mean that you can never be free of contacts or glasses. You may still be suitable for Visian Implantable Contact Lens (Visian ICL™), a reversible vision correction option that keeps your cornea pristine.
Dr Lee is on the expert training panel to other surgeons for the Visian ICL™ and also specialises in diseases related to short-sightedness. If you cannot see without glasses you are probably short-sighted. Short sighted patients have higher risk of floaters and retinal problems.

Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, more commonly known as LASIK, laser eye surgery, or laser vision correction, has boomed in popularity across the globe in recent years.
LASIK surgery in Singapore and other parts of the world is seen as a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses.
