Clearvision Eye Clinic & LASIK Centre was founded in 2001 by Dr. Tony Ho as a private, dedicated LASIK centre 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 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 newspaper on epiLASIK. In November 2006, he also presented a medical study on epiLASIK at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre to fellow doctors. Being the advocate 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 laser vision correction surgery procedure performed by eye surgeons all over the world.
At Clearvision, we now specialise in safe, flap-less and minimally invasive laser vision correction procedures – SafeSight TransPRK and ReLEx SMILE.
With Safe Sight TransPRK, the Schwind Amaris 1050RS excimer laser gently vaporises the outermost epithelial cells and goes on to ablate cornea tissue seamlessly to correct your myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.
With ReLEx SMILE, the ZEISS VisuMax femtosecond laser creates a small lens-shaped tissue (called the lenticule) within the cornea, which is then removed through a small incision. Removing the lenticule changes the shape of the cornea, achieving the desired refractive correction.

We believe that both capable eye doctors and good technology is key to safe, successful laser vision correction for our patients.
Clearvision’s Safe Sight TransPRK is performed on the Schwind Amaris 1050RS. It is able to treat 100 degrees of myopia in 1.3 seconds. It is also equipped with 7-dimensional eye tracking and zero latency tracking technology, which allows accurate treatment.
Our ReLEx SMILE is performed on the ZEISS VisuMax® femtosecond laser system. It is characterised by its speed, precision, high laser frequency and gentle treatment technique. The results are short treatment times and high accuracy for patients.
