OCULAR HISTORY AND EXAMINATION
Your personal information will be logged into the electronic medical records of ROQUE Eye Clinic.
Clinical history taking will be performed. Your ophthalmic history, medical history, and family history will be reviewed. Please take note of all the medications that you rare currently taking.
Please hand over all of your current prescription eye glasses so that our optometrist may record the power.
VISION AND REFRACTION.
Your visual acuity will be taken with and without your current prescription eye glasses. Automated refraction, manual/manifest refraction and dilated/cycloplegic refraction will be done. All these measurements are critical in determining your best potential visual acuity.
SLIT LAMP BIOMICROSCOPY.
Your eyelids, eyelashes, and the anterior segment (conjunctiva, cornea, pupil, iris, and lens) of your eye will be examined with a slit beam of light. This examination is performed to search for lid and lash conditions, corneal diseases, pupil and iris abnormalities, and lens status.
OCULAR SURFACE EVALUATION.
Fluorescein dye applied on your eye will be used to examine the ocular surface for signs of dry eye disease. Your tear break up time (TBUT) will be measured. In some instances, the use of a Rose Bengal or Lissamine Green dye strip may be necessary.
APPLANATION TONOMETRY (Haag Streit Goldmann).
A topical anesthetic, proparacaine, will be instilled into your lower eye lid pocket in order to numb your eye. A fluorescein dye will be used together with a cobalt blue filter to measure your ocular pressure. Your eye pressure will be correlated with your corneal thickness. This examination is used to screen for glaucoma.
DILATED FUNDUS EXAMINATION
Dilating ophthalmic drops will be instilled into your lower eye lid to make your pupils dilate. It usually takes around 30 minutes to achieve full pharmacologic pupillary dilation. Dilation will allow us to examine your retina for congenital/acquired posterior segment diseases. We can see retinal tears/holes, macular degeneration, optic nerve diseases, among other things. The presence of any posterior segment condition may disqualify one from having refractive laser surgery.
Refractive Surgery Suitability Screening.
This extensive screening package is used by individuals desiring laser refractive surgery (PRK, LASIK, FemtoLASIK, SMILE).
It is also used by candidates of:
- phakic lens (EVO Visian ICL, Artisan, Artiflex) implantation
- refractive cataract surgery
- refractive lens exchange (clear lens extraction and replacement)
- presbyopia surgery
- keratoconus surgery (Trans-Epithelial Corneal Cross-Linking, Keraring Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segments)
- Aphakic lens (Artisan Aphakia) implantation
- corneal transplantation (DALK, DSAEK, DMEK, penetrating keratoplasty)
- prescription glasses and contact lens measurement
- post-operative status monitoring

We are proud to offer the latest generation premium minimally-invasive laser refractive surgery procedure for patients with nearsightedness and astigmatism, VisuMax ReLEx SMILE (Small Incision Lenticule Extraction). This is a flapless, bladeless form of laser eye surgery which effectively turns laser eye surgery into a keyhole or pocket procedure. Patients with very high prescriptions, drier eyes, contact lens intolerance and/or thinner corneas may now be qualified for surgery.
Laser refractive surgery procedures using the Excimer Laser such as PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) and LASIK (Laser Assisted in-situ Keratomileusis) and have been successfully performed on several millions of patients over the past two decades around the world. These procedures are very effective in restoring spectacle-free clear vision with a few associated issues such as delayed visual recovery and discomfort in PRK and corneal flap complications in LASIK.
Refractive Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx) in the form of SMILE was developed by Carl Zeiss Meditec to address Excimer issues with the VisuMax Femtosecond laser platform.
During the procedure, eye anaesthetic drops are used to completely numb the eye, and the state-of-the-art Carl Zeiss VisuMax laser places a series of pulses in the centre of the cornea with extraordinary 3D placement accuracy. These pulses form bubbles that are less than 1/100th the width of a human hair, and which outline the tissue that needs to be removed to effectively change the shape of the cornea. The laser then creates a tiny connecting tunnel through which the surgeon draws out this tissue.
With ReLEx SMILE, no flap is created, so the healing time is faster than conventional LASIK. The procedure takes a matter of minutes, and the vision is 80% better instantly and reaches 100% within a few days. No other laser platform has been able to match the accuracy of the Carl Zeiss VisuMax (which is accurate enough to inscribe a word on a grain of sand) in producing this keyhole type of laser eye surgery.
