  • Examination

1. Pre-operative work up procedure

This process is a comprehensive eye check up and takes around 3.5 hours. The process includes the following:

  • Comprehensive eye health check up for diseases.

  • Evaluation for surgery candidacy.

    In the case that you are a candidate, you and your refractive surgery specialist will evaluate the most appropriate technique/method and technology for you, as well as possible side effects and expected results from surgery.

TRSC Preoperative Work Up Process

   1.  Eye health and general health prescreening.

   2.  Viewing of refractive surgery informational video at TRSC Educational Center (30 mins).

   3.  Comprehensive eye check up with various diagnostic equipment.

  • Measurement of higher-order aberrations (WASCA Analyzer)

  • Measurement of corneal thickness (Visante OCT)

  • Measurement of corneal shape (Galilei)

  • Pupil measurements (Pupilometer)

  • Preliminary eye refraction test (Auto Refractometer)

  • Full eye refraction test by a TRSC Certified Refractionist

  • Eye pressure measurement (Icare)

  • Eye dilation 

  • Second refraction test after eye dilation

   4.  Review of preliminary results by your personal TRSC Counselor.

   5.  Summary of your eye health and candidacy for surgery by your refractive surgery specialist.

2. Post-operative follow-up procedure

Every patient who has undergone surgery at TRSC receives a package that includes 5 follow-ups (1 day,
1 week, 1 month, 3 months and 1 year after surgery).

These follow-ups are for the following purposes:  

  • 1 day, to evaluate the surgical process and wound.

  • 1 week, to check initial results and review possible side effects.

  • 1 month, to test and examine the results of visual correction.

  • 3 months, to ensure the prescription and vision results are as planned.

  • 1 year, to recheck eye prescription and general eye health.

3. Annual Eye Check Up

Many eye diseases do not show any symptoms until it becomes serious. Unfortunately, in many of these cases, the eye may never fully heal again. However, early detection and treatment may delay or fully treat most eye diseases. For example, glaucoma can be detected in patients aged over 40 years old without any symptoms.

  • For those with abnormal eyesight, there is greater risk of some eye diseases. It is recommended to have an eye check up annually.

    • For those with regular eyesight and under 40 years old, it is recommended to have an eye check up once every two years.

    • For those with regular eyesight and over 40 years old, it is recommended to have an eye check up annually.
