Thank you Dream Eye Center!

If you are contemplating getting eye surgery here in Korea, I highly recommend Dream Eye Center in Myeong dong. The staff, doctors and procedure are top notch, not to mention completely in English. The consultation is completely free, so I recommend taking that step to see for yourself.

I had lasik eye surgery in April, and the surgery itself is pretty incredible. If you're feeling a little scared, here's a breakdown of the procedure. First, they put a gown over your clothes and cap on your head, then wipe your face down. An assistant is there to hold your hand and talk to you if you are nervous :-) A few minutes later I was escorted into the operating room, where I should mention the person with you can see everything happening through the window and a monitor, so my boyfriend was able to watch the whole procedure. They laid me down and gave me a big pillow to hold for comfort. The doctor spoke excellent English and walked me through the whole procedure. He asked me to look at the green light. They use several eye drops to numb the eyes and then covered one eye while they did the procedure on the other. There's some kind of tool they use to keep your eye open so you don't blink. For lasik they have to cut and peel back the cornea, which will be explained during the consultation. That takes about 5-10secs and everything is blurry for a bit.. keep looking at the green light and the actual laser fixes the eye in about 15secs. This is the strangest part probably because you can smell your eye burning, but don't worry, it doesn't hurt at all! Finally, they put the cornea flap back in place and cover it with a contact lens for one day to help it heal. The same procedure is done with the other eye. In a matter of 10mins I was finished and could see pretty good already, enough not to need glasses. They put you in a resting room, laying on a nice warm bed with your choice of music and ask that you keep your eyes shut for 10mins or so. The doc then checks them and you're free to go! Wham bam, just like that! The easiest surgery ever I think. :-)

Special thanks to 문주 for being so fantastic throughout the whole consultation, procedure, and follow-ups.

  • Castro Amber Nicole I’ve always heard about lasik/lasek eye surgery .. it’s something I’ve always wanted to do but was absolutely terrified!! I’ve been wearing glasses for 17+ years , Dr. Koo and his staff -Susan& Cho Rong are the best !! They made me feel comfortable before , during and after the procedure . I had some discomfort a few days after the procedure but now I can see much better than I could with my glasses on !! If you’re looking into eye correction surgery and you’re in South Korea .. This is the place to go👍👍👍👍👍 #dreameyecenter #lasekinseoul #humphrey #lasereyesurgery #hellolasik #standardzerolasek Copyright @Instagram/nicolecastro_93
  • Jacob Three years ago I went for my eye surgery. I was very nervous, but all the staff at Dream Eye Center were fantastic! Susan explained everything and was there with me all the way. Surgery itself was quick and painless. My eyesight steadily improved over the first year and is now better than 20/20! My eyes are perfect and I have no issues with them. The level of professionalism and and quality of service was (and still is) exceptional. I go back yearly for my free follow-up check ups and they still treat me with all the care and helpfulness they did from day one. I would highly recommend Dream Eye Center to anyone!
  • Michelle B (Canadian) I had my surgery almost two years ago. I have suggested that my friends visit this place because of the care that I reveived. I was well taken care of during all the stages, and even until today. I was terrified to enter Dream Eye Center because the thought of doing such a procedure but I was quickly greeted by multiple smiles. The members of this center truly understand that this is an uncormfotable step for some people. They explained everything so well, and answered my questions kindly. Actually, I didn't have many questions since they carefully explain the surgery. They do this daily, but they treat each individual well without rushing through the material. On the day of the surgery, I didn't feel anxious. I was shocked that I felt ok. Just everyone is super considerate. Having this surgery was a great decision and coming to this professional center was the best decision! They have been helpful for other matters as well. I am very grateful for the members of this center. I always feel very welcomed. I'm sure you will too! I am so happy I took a chance. Everything went smoothly and now I am glasses free. :)
