I wore glasses for nearly 8 years and moreover, being a girl, I can tell you how inconvenient it is. At the age of 18, I was already looking to do laser eye correction, however my optomitrist insisted I wait until 2nd year of uni. So I did. And when I was in 2nd year of uni, the optomitrist told me to wait until I was past 30. After that, I had enough and so decided to schedule a consultation and maybe even surgery with Dream Eye Centre in Gangnam.

On my first day at the clinic, my allocated staff member Choo Young Jin greeted me warmly and explained the whole check up procedure in detail. I filled out some papers, waited a bit and was led by Mr Choo to a row of around 10-11 machines where a number of eye checks were performed to ensure I was the right candidate for lasek. I must say, the check ups were in so much detail! I was told information about my eye that I never knew; ranging from the size of dry area on my eye to the thickness of my cornea and size of my pupil. It was pretty releaving to know that your doctor thoroughly checked your eyes before really doing the surgery.

After the numerous eye tests, I was assigned a doctor, Dr Lee Dong Seoung. Dr Lee once again checked my eyes to confirm that I was suitable for lasek and then advised me that surgery would be carried out in 30 mins. Yay! I finally can do lasek! I was very very excited.

I changed into a gown (as instructed by the nurse) and sat in the waiting room for my turn. The surgery was very very quick. It took no more than 15mins for the doctor to do both eyes. Laying on the table, I was awake and following Dr Lee's instructions. (don't worry that you might blink because they put something between ur eyelids to make sure you don't blink)

The hardest thing about the surgery is probably having to stare at the bright lights during surgery. It was one of those bright lights that make you want to unconsciously finch and blink. But because your eyes are forced open, you have no other option but to stare at the light. For those scared of pain, let me tell you, the surgery doesn't hurt. not one bit.. you might smell something burning but no pain.

However after the surgery, there may be pain. It really depends on the person. When I finished surgery, my eyes were just watery and a bit painful for the first 2 hrs, then I was fine. The girl recovering next to me told me her eyes really hurted then. The first and second day, I was fine. On the second day, I even went out shopping the whole day. But on the 3rd day, my eye hurted the whole day.. I couldn't open them at all and it was very very watery. After the 3rd day, everything was back to normal. My eyes didn't hurt and I resumed my shopping spree.

For the following weeks, I continued to use the eye drops provided and went to regular check ups. I was told that I was recovering well and will gain perfect vision very soon. That day I look forward to.

Overall, lasek is absolutely worth it. Gangnam branch Dream Eye Centre was able to provide me with reassurance that my eyes were in safe hands. The staff were friendly and adequate after care was provided. I strongly recommend this clinic to those who want to be glasses & contact free. Even if you are not sure whether to do lasek or not, just pay them a visit and get a check up to know how ur eyes are doing.

  • 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. :)
