Overview of Korea Lasik (Smart Lasik & Lasek)
Korea Lasik (Smart Lasik & Lasek) are the procedures that Sky Eye Clinic are best known for. I’m not a doctor but I’ll do my best to describe it simply.
Smart Lasik, Lasek, and Lasik are all corrective eye surgery. Most people get the procedure done to correct their vision in the hopes that they will no longer need contact lenses or glasses. Lasik is the original version of the surgery, while Lasek uses a more advanced technique, and Smart Lasik is the latest version of the procedure. There are pros and cons to each surgery type, and some are more suitable than others depending on the eye issues you are facing.

When I walked in I was surprised to find such a welcoming interior at an eye clinic, of all places. With so much greenery, it gave off the vibe of a meditation retreat.
In fact, I found the green interior to be one of the highlights of the clinic. I didn’t feel any of the anxiety that normally comes with being in a clinic.
It looked like a lovely garden theme cafe, or meditation space from the moment I stepped through the door, to the second I left. It made me feel at peace.
Also, they have a garden. It’s said that the color green is good for the eyes, but I also felt that it was good for my anxiety. Here, you will not only receiving treatment but also color therapy.
After reaching the clinic, I went to the information desk on the 8th floor. Then, I told them the reason for my visit and had a 1:1 consultation with my doctor.
After the consultation, I went up to the 9th floor to get my diagnosis and results.
