LASIK is the most commonly performed laser eye surgery to correct vision in people who have myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism. The word “LASIK” is an acronym for “laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses.” The LASER basically corrects the refractive error by re-shaping the cornea to incorporate the spectacle correction onto the cornea. LASIK surgery is essentially pain-free and takes only about 15 minutes for both eyes. The results — improved vision without eyeglasses or contact lenses — begin immediately after the procedure and vision usually continues to improve and stabilize over a few days.

SCEH was one of the first centres in the city to offer LASER vision correction for refractive errors, and also one of the initial centres to offer blade free Femto LASIK as an option for thinner and more precise flap designs.
At SCEH we are proud to offer the most advanced technologies AMO Visx Star S4 CustomVue Excimer LASER with Wavescan (IR) and the Intralase 150 Hz iFS Femtosecond FS Laser for vision correction. We also have the most sophisticated diagnostic testing and machine software to track, analyse and optimise the outcome of every procedure we perform . At SCEH we have 100 percent fellowship trained Cornea and Refractive surgery specialists who have together performed over 10,000 successful procedures over the last 20 years! We have a long term follow up of LASER surgeries performed over 10-15 years back with very good outcomes.
At SCEH, we offer treatment to those patients also, with order atarax available, who may be deemed unfit LASIK surgery due to thin cornea. Some of such options are:
