Share: Is LASIK Surgery Safe?
LASIK, which stands for laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses, is a quick, minimally-invasive refractive surgery that reshapes the cornea to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism (a defect in the eye resulting in distorted vision).
For LASIK patients, says common LASIK symptoms include dry eyes, visual distortions, and light sensitivity. “Severe eye pain has been attributed to about 1 out of 10,000 surgeries and needs to be considered by the patient before undergoing LASIK

Dr. Natasha Lim was the pioneer in Singapore to utilize the most advanced iLASIK technology known as iDesign™ iLASIK™, which has a 5x higher resolution than its predecessor, Wavescan.
Dr. Natasha Lim specializes in customized treatments using Wavefront-Guided iDesign which benefits all her patients with superior night vision after LASIK surgery. iDesign™ iLASIK™ is also the technology used by NASA for their Astronauts and the US Navy for their Aviators
Step 1: iDesign™ Advanced Wavescan

The iDesign Advanced Waves System provide the greatest precision on measuring irregularities in the eyeThe iDesign Advanced Waves System provide the greatest precision on measuring irregularities in the eye
iDesign™ is the world’s most advanced Wavefront-Guided Aberrometer
The iDesign™ Advanced Wavescan system scans each eye over the pupil using 1257 data points to measure the wavefront of the eye, creating a unique map for treatment.
It is the world’s most advanced aberrometer, providing the greatest precision in measuring irregularities in the eye. In addition to achieving spectacle independence, it improves visual quality and contrast sensitivity significantly in dim-light conditions.
Step 2: Intralase Bladeless Flap Creation
The gold-standard for modern LASIK flap creation is the bladeless technique using a femtosecond (iFS) laser system, also known as “All-Lasik surgery”. Dr. Natasha Lim uses the world’s most advanced femtosecond laser, iFS, which creates a bladeless flap in 12 seconds using minimal energy for the speediest recovery and thinnest possible flap. This ensures long term safety and stability of the cornea. Dr. Lim’s lasik surgery Singapore is 100% bladeless, performed using a femtosecond (iFS) laser system.
Step 3: VISX Star S4 IR Excimer Laser
Iris Registration is necessary to compensate for cyclotorsion that occurs when the patient goes from the upright to the lying down position
Wavefront-Guided treatment by VISX Star S4 IR™ gives superior outcomes because the treatment uses iris recognition (IR) that ensures delivery of a well-centered treatment and variable spot-scanning that is more tissue-saving. The system provides the tailor-made vision for each individual eye. The excimer laser treatment is applied under the corneal flap.
ViSX Star Excimer laser entirely eliminates myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.
