@anerba :)

I think "forever" is too long  for anything in this world :) The changes we make in lasik surgery are permanent. Lasik does not prevent you from getting cataracts at 60 y.o or glaucoma or sore eyes at some point in time. So you're eyes can still get blurry for some other reason in the future... notably, old age.

I'll email you in a bit :)

Hi. I'm also considering Lasik since years ago. I wear glasses, I've had contact lens-related infections but sometimes I still use contact lens.

What are the fees for Lasik screening if you are a good candidate?

Ako din po, pa discount if I'm a good candidate for Lasik!  :D maybe when my 13th month pay comes in, I can have the surgery hmm

hello dr.richie, my grade is 450/550, been wearing contact lense for almost 10 years na. One of my fear is to get old na sobrang labo ng eyes and worst fear ko is to get blind  :( Once makaipon lang talagang gusto ko mag undergo nga lasik. Ask ko lang po is there a difference in technology sa St. Lukes at sa Fatima? or the same lang pero St. Lukes kasi is St.Lukes. Bukod po kasi sa mas mura sa fatima mas malapit po kami. Pls. email me din po your clinic schedule para I can vist one of this days. Salamat po

Excellent question! The technology is the same. Yet there are subtle differences. They generally don't matter for most eyes but for some, they might. Lastly, warranty by st.luke's is "lifetime". Fatima's is not. email kita.

Dr. Richie, what does lifetime warranty mean? Pag po lumabo ulit mata after the surgery, pwedeng ulitin?

Thanks po!

@liam's mom

Yes. Pero kung lumabo yung mata mo due to some other disease (like age related cataract), then lasik is not the mode of treatment. This is beyond the "warranty parameters"

hi doc,

im wearing contact lens for 10yrs now. my grade is 375 both eyes. my mom has retinitis pigmentosa. is there a possibility magkaron din ako nun? she's almost blind now. sa family kaming 2 brother ko may grado na mata yung 2 mukang 20/20 pa naman sila.

another question, we have a health card from my company, can i charge the operation to my health card? ;D or is there a way na macover operation ng health card? maxado po kasi mahal yung procedure.. :'(

what dou mean po with this: Lastly, warranty by st.luke's is "lifetime".  panu pong lifetime warranty offer ng st lukes?

thanks in advance doc richie. so gald you were there to ans all our questions. ;) God bless! :)

@♥♥♥TWYSHY♥♥♥

1. Yes it is possible (although unlikely). what you need to do is have a retina screening to find out. at this point, it's either you have it or you don't.

2. As for your health card, you have to ask THEM if they will cover it. it's their decision not ours. Bihira kasi nilang i-cover. Some people high enough in the totem pole have "platinum plans" that do cover it.

3. Usually kasi, 1 year lang "warranty" ng mga eye center. At st.luke's, if you have lasik at the age of 20 and you need lasik again at the age of 50, st.luke's won't charge you anymore.
