Clearvision Eye Clinic & LASIK Centre was established in 2001 by Dr. Tony Ho as one of the first private, dedicated LASIK centres in Singapore. The centre mainly focused on offering the main laser vision correction procedure known as the cut-and-flap LASIK.
In 2004, Dr. Ho had the opportunity to perform the first surface-based, no cut and no flap Advanced Surface Ablation (ASA) method, now known as epiLASIK. It was found that epiLASIK is less invasive than traditional LASIK as laser vision correction is done right from the cornea surface without cutting the cornea and creating a corneal flap. Because there is no corneal flap created, epiLASIK had no risk of flap complications at all – a major benefit against its cut-and-flap LASIK predecessor.
In June 2005, Dr. Ho was interviewed by Today Newspapers on epiLASIK, the new laser vision correction surgery procedure then. In November 2006, he also presented a medical study on epiLASIK at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre to fellow doctors. Being the advocate and pioneer of the surface-based epiLASIK surgery in Singapore and the region, Dr. Ho went on to write books, articles and scientific papers on the safe, surface-based epiLASIK.
Due to the many benefits of epiLASIK, Clearvision started specializing only in epiLASIK since 2009 and stopped doing the cut-and-flap LASIK altogether. epiLASIK is now a well-known laser vision correction surgery procedure used by eye surgeons all over the world.
At Clearvision today, we now specialize in the advanced, surface-based Safe Sight TransPRK (Transepithelial PhotoRefractive Keratectomy) with the state-of-the-art Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser technology. Safe Sight TransPRK is superior to epiLASIK as there is no blade used to remove the outermost epithelial cells. Instead, the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser gently vaporizes the outermost epithelial cells and goes on to ablate cornea tissue seamlessly to correct your myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.
