The Doctors' Doctor
One of the most common questions we are asked is "Do Eye Surgeons and Doctors have vision correction surgery?"
Doctors - in particular eye surgeons, have flown from different continents to be taken care of by our team at Centre for Sight. It is our pleasure to introduce some eye surgeons who have had surgery with us.
Mei-Lian Hoe, Doctor, IntraLASIK
"Having laser eye surgery has been one of the best investments I've made to date, offering freedom that is so often taken for granted."
Having Dr Mei-Lian Hoe underwent Laser eye surgery at Centre for Sight after being recommended by her father Wilbert Hoe, a retired corneo-refractive ophthalmologist.
After being short-sighted and astigmatic from the age of 10, she was excited to be free from glasses and contact lenses to pursue an active lifestyle without second thought to her eyesight.
