LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

It has been about 3 months since I did my LASIK surgery. I know some of you guys are very curious on my LASIK journey so I can’t wait to share with you guys how I feel about it.

Why did I go for LASIK?

Even though my shortsighted degree wasn’t very high (both sides about -1.75), I decided to still go with the procedure because I find a hassle wearing glasses and contact lens. On days whereby I need to wear contact lens, it would take me ages to put on the lens as it can get pretty irritating. The idea of rubbing my eyes when trying to put it on definitely isn’t pleasing! I also don’t like the feeling of dryness after prolonged of wearing it. Additionally, my ears would feel really sore if I wear spectacles for long hours.

Sometimes, I’m lazy to wear any spectacles or contact lenses. But, it was hard for me to see things like street’s name, bus number, or signage even though my degree wasn’t very high. It was still affecting my daily life.

Pre-LASIK Assessment

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic – Pre-LASIK Assessment

I was told that a pre-assessment was needed to be made for the doctor to evaluate if I am suitable for LASIK. The Pre-LASIK Assessment was only SGD$25 at W Eye Clinic! It was really affordable to get your eyes checked. To make a booking for the assessment was fairly easy, all I did was to make a call for an appointment. The whole process was about 2 hours. Yes, it was long. But, I was glad that the clinic checked my eyes thoroughly to make sure that I’m suitable for the surgery. I told myself that if I’m not suitable it would be alright because it was only 20 bucks. No harm getting it checked, right?

Do note that the result of the assessment will be only valid for 3 months, so if you are suitable for LASIK, make sure to pre-book your surgery date within 3 months of the pre-assessment day! I was super thrilled when the doctor told me that I was suitable to do the surgery.

Dr. Nah suggested me to do Intralase LASIK and I went ahead with his recommendation.

Surgery

The actual surgery was separated mainly into two parts:

  1. Creation of Flap
  2. Laser

Though the whole process took about 2 hours, most of the time I was just getting prepared. There were lots of cleaning and resting in between to make sure I was ready for the next step. When it comes to the actual machine doing the lasering, it took less than 1 minute per eye each time.  I was super nervous during the procedure! But, the nurse that was attending me was very caring and understanding. She slowly explained the process throughout the procedure so that I would know what to expect next and be prepared for. Honestly, I don’t feel any pain at all, even after the procedure when my anesthetic wore off. My eyes just felt a little dry and itchy. I was told repeatedly NOT to rub my eyes and use lots of eye drops to aid healing.

Benefits

I decided to go for this method because,

  1. It recovers quickly – perfect vision on the 2nd day
  2. Painless – Only felt a little drier than usual for the first 2 weeks but no pain

Post-Surgery

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic – Reddish eyes can be seen on my side view

My eyes were quite red after the surgery. Dr. Nah told me that the reason for my reddy eyes was that he used a stronger suction during the first part of the surgery. A stronger suction is safer for us patient as the chances of it slipping away during the surgery is lower. This means that your eye will stay still while the machine creates the flap. Of course, the downside for me was that I had reddy eyes for the next 3 weeks. Yet, I prefer the safer option and have the reddish eyes to risking it slipping away if he used a weaker suction cup.

I woke up with a perfect vision on the 2nd day. However, I was told my Dr. Nah that the first few weeks of recovery was crucial and advised me to keep putting eye drop medication and go for review to prevent infection. I made sure to get enough rest and avoid dusty areas to promote healing during that period too.

Another factor was that I could not wash my hair and face for the first week of recovery to prevent bacteria from getting into my eyes. It was a hassle for me as I could only use wet wipes to clean my face while avoiding the eye area. I was instructed to gently clean the area of my eyes with a cotton ball that has been soaked in recently boiled water twice a day. Still, it wasn’t that bad as I was having my term breaks and just stayed at home.

A week after my surgery, my eyes felt so much better, even though I do feel dry from time to time, I find myself needing lesser eye drops than before. Still, I was advised to lubricate my eyes well for the first 3 months.

Now (after 3 months), my eyes feel good as I don’t feel dry anymore. I thought I was going to be prepared to use eye drops every day for life, I find myself not needing eye drops anymore. I still strongly believe in having some eye drop vials on hand if I find myself feeling dry and tired after a long day. I’m also glad that my doctor told me that I have 6 out of 6 perfect eyesight!

Suzette @ Esplanade – The Picnic Basket Concept

Suzette @ Esplanade

Suzette @ Esplanade

If you have heard about Lola’s Cafe, then I’m sure you will want to know more about this new Dessert Bar at Esplanade. The owner of Lola’s Cafe opened a new Dessert Bar named Suzette. Conveniently located at Esplanade, this dessert bar offers a wide scrumptious of desserts and savory menus that are all so heavenly.

Yet, Suzette is not like any other ordinary cafes or dessert bars. Starting from 5th November 2016, you could rent a picnic basket and a mat with a deposit of $50 to go for a picnic! How unconventional right?

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

I got to have a wonderful picnic experience with their new picnic concept. I love the idea of having an outdoor meal with nature.

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger. Sure it will be messy when having this. But, the shredded duck meat was pleasantly sweet. It was certainly refreshing. 

Quinoa Rice Bowl

Quinoa Rice Bowl

My personal favorite, Quinoa Rice Bowl with Chicken, Guacamole, Corn & Chilli Lime Dressing. I think that the chicken was well-grilled. Paired with the guacamole and dressing, it was flavorful and so delish! I totally prefer Quinoa to Brown Rice. Still, Quinoa is as healthy as Brown Rice. So I was glad that they used Quinoa.

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

For dessert, I got to try out Passion Fruit and Basil Cheesecake. It was fabulously exotic!

From top to bottom, the creator of this dessert certainly a whole lot of thought it too! I was told that only the whipped cream was infused with Basil and not the whole cake itself as some people might not be so fond of the flavor. Then, I was amazed by a wonderful combination of Passion Fruit and Cheese together. Just you think it can’t get any special, the crust was made with a very unusual ingredient. I can’t tell you what is it but, you got to try it out!

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

If you love Nutella, you got to try this out yeah! 

Coffee Hazelnut Tart, lovely as always. A mocha nutty crust, hard yet crumbly soft! A little ironic I know but that is how I am going to describe it. The filling was wonderful and aromatic too! Surely a rich and decadent dessert, if that’s what you are looking for.

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Dense fudgy Banana-flavored & Earl Grey Cake covered with luscious smooth Banana-Flavored almost-caramelized buttercream, that’s a lot of banana to represent this cake. 

Something different if you are feeling adventurous, especially if you are deeply in love with banana. 

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart, a good balance of sour and sweet deems a good tart. I’m sure this will satisfy most people, but I find a little just a little more sourish will do my liking. Nevertheless, I still find that they have one of the best Lemon Meringue Tart in town.

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf with Lemon Curd may sound rather uncommon to us Singaporeans, but actually a very popular combination elsewhere in the world. Try it out yourself and you will know why. At the very least, I’m sure that a loaf cake won’t go wrong.

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Simple and light Acai Smoothie Bowl. If you ain’t looking anything to devour down a rather heavy meal, maybe you could grab a bowl of Acai Smoothie from there. Topped with fresh fruit and yummy-limous crumble, simple, light and refreshing.

Drinks

Drinks

Chocolate drink is my favorite among these three. Nevertheless, all three of them are very rich and fragrant.

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

It was definitely a pleasant evening with Suzette and their new Picnic Concept. I can see that many people will enjoy this idea during their weekends with their family and friends especially after a long week of work. I too would bring someone I want to spend time with to sit down and enjoy the marvelous evening.

Thanks Suzette for having me, giving such as a great hospitality. Ring them out to find more information about it!

Pineapple Punch and Cherry Peach Cooler

Pineapple Punch and Cherry Peach Cooler

Refreshing mocktails before dinner starts. Didn’t want to take alcohol as it was a weekday.

Snapper Fish Tacos

Snapper Fish Tacos

For starters, I got to try out Snapper Fish Tacos. The fish fillets were lightly battered fried till crispy golden brown. Paired with lovely cheesy nacho cheese, pineapple chutney and a finishing of lime juice. It was heavenly amazing. I love it!

BBQ Chicken Parm

BBQ Chicken Parm

Next, I got to try out BBQ Chicken Parm. Pan-fried chicken breast, wrapped with grilled bacon and caramelized onions, and topped with a generous amount of melted mozzarella cheese. 

BBQ Barramundi

BBQ Barramundi

This got to be my favorite main dish, BBQ Barramundi. Crispy skin, yet tenderly soft meat, served with Garlic Mayonnaise and a finishing squeeze of lemon juice. It’s a great choice, yum!

Meat Platter

Meat Platter

When you are in Dallas, you should totally try our their Meat Platter when dining with your friends. Though this Meat Platter is for 2, I find that it is more suitable for 4 people. The Meat Platter consists of Braised Pork Ribs, Australian Lamb, Prime Rib, and Roasted Chicken. It comes with Mint Jelly, Mushroom Sauce, and Black Pepper Sauce. The Mint Jelly goes delightfully with the Lamb Cutlets, while the other sauces should be paired with the Roasted Chicken.

Keylime Pie

Keylime Pie

If you love sourish dessert, this is for you. I highly recommend you to get a slice of Keylime Pie to share at the end of your meal here in Dallas as it was very zesty and sharp.

Warm Chocolate Brownie

Warm Chocolate Brownie

THIS IS THE BEST BROWNIE I EVER HAD! TRUST ME! It was so rich and indulgent, even I was embarrassed with my own brownie recipes. I was told that all their desserts were made in-house, I wonder why they did not open a brownie shop because this brownie really deserves some recognition.

Apple Pie

Apple Pie

Lastly, I also got to try their Apple Pie. I do like the Cinnamon Apple filling. Yet, the crust was a little too soft and lacks flavor.

The Rotisserie @ Suntec City Mall

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I recently went to Suntec City Mall to try out ‘The Rotisserie‘. These are one of the most popular dishes on the menu, Roasted Chicken (half), Pork Knuckle, and Black Angus Beef Burger. Yet, since I can’t take in beef, I will not comment about it. 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The portions were generously and I certainly couldn’t finish either of a whole plate. My main course was Pork Knuckle. Honestly, I personally feel that the meat was too red, and can be further improved. However, the Roasted Chicken was surprisingly amazing! Well roasted skin on the outside with tender moist meat on the inside

However, the Roasted Chicken was surprisingly amazing! Welled roasted skin on the outside with tender moist meat on the inside! For its price, I feel it is very worthwhile due to its portion size and location. 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The winner deserves its glory! Here goes an individual shot for ‘The Rotisserie‘ Roasted Chicken!

If you love to grab a cup of latte or a big portion sized Roasted Chicken with great ambiance and quiet surrounding, you should definitely try The Rotisserie @ Suntec City Mall.
