Lasik at Optimax TTDI by Dr. Chuah Kay Leong

Posted on: September 19, 2010

After years of hesitation, I finally found the guts to go for Lasik Treatment. I have had many friends who have undergone Lasik eye surgery and many of them highly recommends Optimax. I googled for Optimax’s website and I dialed the toll free number to fix an appointment for check-up. I was very impressed by the receptionist’s manner of handling my call. She was very¬†knowledgeable in answering my questions. I wanted to go for the full 2 hour eye-check up. The lady told me that I should bring a long my sun glasses and someone should drive me home after the check up.

When I went to Optimax TTDI on the scheduled date, I didn’t have to wait long. I notice because they had a number of optometrists to perform the check-ups. Mine was done by a sweet young chinese lady. She’s very professional and she explained to me the function of each eye machine through out the procedure. Briefly, my eye’s power, corneal thickness, corneal pressure, corneal flatness etc. were recorded. After my everything was completed, the optician brought me to the consultation room where she explained to me the types of Lasik available.

Optimax offers a wide range of laser eye refractive surgery; namely Lasik, All-Laser-Lasik, Epi-Lasik/Lasek and Lasik XP. Then you also have Conventional, Custom and Multifocal categories. Well I can’t really recall the details of each types now, but she did mentioned that because I have very flat corneas, the most suitable procedure for me would be the Custom All-Laser-Lasik. ¬†She showed me the price and I almost fainted. It would cost RM3,588 per eye for this procedure!! You can refer to the pricelist below. I did not manage to find any pricelist online before I did my Lasik, so I thought this price list may help you budget your finances before committing to such a big investment!

As I made payment for the eye-check up, the cashier told me that I could get a cheaper rate for the Lasik if I sign up at their road show @ Tropicana Mall the following weekend. Wow! I thought I must be in luck…

I did went to the roadshow to place a deposit, and I secured RM3,388 per eye for the Custom All-Laser-Lasik. Good thing is that Optimax will rebate me RM120 for the eye check-up that I paid earlier. It’s a hefty sum, really, and good thing my friend who referred me promised to share the referral commission! At least, it helps to offset the cost a little, right?

I have no regrets with my Lasik procedure at Optimax. My doctor Dr. Chuah Kay Leong is a really nice man, he’s attentive and he’s got great feedbacks from his previous patients. You can read the testimonials at his office. His surgery days are Tuesdays and Thursdays if you would like him to perform Lasik for you.

It’s been 3 months after my Lasik and I’m loving everyday of it! It’s so convenient and naturally confidence builds up because you feel better about yourself. If you’re considering Lasik, my advice is wait no more, just go for it!

Nice sharing Sher Li!! I did my Custom All-Laser-Lasik too at TTDI abt this year by Dr Chuah. Still great vision, very satisfied – NO REGRET!! Hurray!!

Luckily didn’t go to V****, they kept pushing me to do their so-called ‘NASA’ treatment which cost me abt RM10K!!! OMG! After that I tried to google around & found the same treatment at another lasik centre at very very much low price(abt RM3k-4K cheaper, felt like being conned…

Finally I decided to go to Optimax as found their ppl very professional & honest…They told me that I was suitable for several type of treatments including cheaper price, but I still opt for high-end type, Custom All-Laser-Lasik since i am type of kia-si ppl…heehee! Although i didn’t get any discount out of my treatment (mine is RM3,588 per eye) but i still think is worth of $$.

p/s: in fact the staff who checking the eyes at TTDI are not ‘optician’, they are Optometriest. Haha!

Hi YY,
Thanks for your sharing! I’m so so glad that you’re another lucky person who made the right choice to undergo your lasik treatment at Optimax TTDI! You are right, the staff at Optimax are really professional, they know what they are talking about.

Hi,
I am planning on doing laser in Opticmax and I’m planning to do the check up on my eye this week.

Do i need to make any appointment for the checking?

Hi Sam,
Yes, you need to make an appointment for the check up. Call up Optimax and they will advise you what to prepare. All the best!

Hi! Sher Li, Great to heard to that your surgery is successful. I am think of doing conventional custom lasik in Optimax TTDI but the price already increased to RM3000 per eye. Fainted!!! For All laser custom lasik increased to RM4000++ per eye. Terrible. Heard the customer service said the price will increase on Jan 2012.
