12 Questions on LASIK and TransPRK asked by Bertilla Wong, co-founder of popular local blogshop The Closet Lover
We had the opportunity to meet with Bertilla Wong, co-founder of popular local blogshop The Closet Lover, when she came down to Clearvision Eye Clinic & LASIK Centre for her eye evaluation. Arriving in oversized rounded spectacles and casual comfy wear, the lively petite girl boss shared about her years of contact lens woes and frustration with wearing spectacles.
About half of the world’s population suffers from a vision problem. With advancements in technology, there’s no shortage of ways to correct your vision. While glasses seem to be the default option in most cases, there are other ways such as contacts or laser eye surgery.
In recent years, there have been many advancements in laser eye surgery. Most of these vision correction surgeries involve reshaping the cornea to help the eyes focus light accurately on the retina. LASIK eye surgery, for instance, involves reshaping the tissue underneath the cornea by making an incision in the cornea to create a flap. On the other hand, LASEK does not require cutting of the cornea.
Most jobs in the world do not require perfect vision, although clear vision would make it easier to do the work effectively and efficiently.
