Ideal face shape – with a little help from Dr. Daniel Chang

As most of you might have noticed from my social media accounts (*hint* follow me at @YingVannie *hint*), my features seemed to be a little sharper recently and complexion got even way better. ?  I promised I would do a blogpost on what I’ve done to my face so here I am!

..though I’m gonna have to warn you, this is a lengthly post.

Due to time constraints, I’ve spilt the different treatments from Dr. Daniel into 2 visits instead. As there wasn’t much downtime for either my visits, I was free to rush for my next event after that without worrying about my looks.

Dr. Daniel offer a wide range of medical aesthetics services such as acne scar treatments, fillers, laser treatments, body contouring, laser hair removal, non-surgical facelifts and customized medical aesthetics treatments based on the latest technologies. "

Consultation with Dr. Daniel Chang

My main concern is of course, my complexion, due to a previous severe outbreak. I was left pretty much scarred inside (heart) and out (face). Lol ??  As my age is (undoubtedly) catching up, my second priority was a shaper and tighter face.

Dr. Daniel Chang is an expert not only in dermatology but also has a vast area of expertise in Korean medical aesthetics. I still remember my first time visiting Dr. Daniel almost 2 years ago for a laser treatment. I left his clinic with amazing glowing skin for my modelling role in the Singapore Motorshow. Can’t believe that time passes so fast!

Perfect Eyesight w/Clearvision [Trans-epiLASIK Aftercare]

25 No tags Permalink


Hi everybody~~~? Here is a photo of me! Just that, this time round with no contact lenses to enhance my eyes because I’ve perfect eyesight now. *Flips hair* ?

I’ve received many questions from y’all (including my friends) and the very top concerns that I’ve been receiving are;

Can you see immediately after the Trans-epiLASIK surgery?

Yes, you can… but only about 70% – Your vision would be similar to as if you’ve just stepped-out from a cold place (a bit foggy). The first 3 days after I done my Trans-epiLASIK, my eyesight fluctuates like mad – one moment it’s super clear, the next moment I couldn’t even read what’s on my handphone screen despite putting it almost infront of me.

The 3rd day onwards, My vision remained pretty stable (occasionally a bit blur, but it went off after blinking several times).

The reason was due to that the eye cells were still moving around, thus the fluctuation. Some might takes a few months for their eyesight to stable down. SOME.

How high is your degree/astigmatism? Is it fully corrected?

Can’t really remember my astigmatism, but it’s pretty high if I didn’t remember wrongly. My degree is about 700 for both eyes. Like most people, I do have the concern of under-correcting/over-correcting, especially when there’s a saying that the higher your degree, the harder it is to achieve perfect eyesight.

That’s why it’s EXTREMELY important to choose the right doctor and also the one that you feel safe and comfortable with. Dr. Tony Ho from Clearvision is not only a well-recognised and respected figure in the Singapore refractive surgery arena, but also has over 25 years of specialty experience.

Thanks to Dr. Tony that I achieved something that I never dreamt of – PERFECT eyesight! ? I’ve posted a chart of my favourite zeros later on in this blogpost. ? There’s still a bit of unnoticeable fluctuation currently as the eye cells still moving.

How do you make your eyes looks bigger without dolly contact lens? Do you feel your eyes looks “dead” or look like it loses its focus (in other words, pak jiao or soulless) after LASIK?

There’re many ways to create the illusion of bigger eyes without dolly contact lenses. To name a few – heavier eye make-up (such as thicker eyeliner), falsies or eyelash extensions.

Nope. Just look at my photo that I have posted above, does my eyes looks “soul-less”?☝? Nope! I feel that my eyes even looks brighter than before!

  1. I did Tran-epiLasik which doesn’t involve any cutting of the corneal flap (“cutting” is the culprit that potentially leads to eye dryness).
  2. Having perfect eyesight now means there’s no need for contact lenses. No matter how highly permeable or “breathable” your contact lenses are, especially during days when you wear contact lens for long hours, you’re bound to experience some sort of dry eyes. After all, there’s a “plastic” covering your eyes from breathing.
  3. Lubricant (for eyes!) Not only refreshes and moisturises your eyes (like what normal eye drops do), but also gives your eyes the watery, shiny, waxy(?) look! It can be used on normal, healthy eyes (why didn’t I find out the existence of such products earlier?! *Hiao mood on aka bimbo mood*)

The eyepatch and shades are included in the Trans-epiLASIK package. Separate cost for the lubricant eyedrops.

Perfect Eyesight w/Clearvision [Trans-epiLASIK Procedure]

4 No tags Permalink


My LASIK surgery was scheduled the very next morning after my pre-LASIK evaluation! I opted for the Trans-epiLASIK under Dr. Tony Ho from Clearvision. The reason why I wanted to do it as soon as possible was due to the fact I’m no longer suitable for contact lenses.

For those who clearly know that LASIK is what you want, I suggest you have the surgery on the same day (provided your pre-LASIK evaluation is early in the morning and also do check with Clearvision on the doctor’s availability.)

Also for contact lens users, it also saves you the trouble of abstaining from contact lenses again (2 days for soft lens and 10 days for hard lens).


Clearvision is located behind Lucky Plaza and Paragon.

If somebody that is driving is gonna accompany you down, I would recommend parking at Lucky Plaza (which is the cheapest and nearest). The other 2 nearby choices would be Paragon and Mount Elizabeth Hospital. However, I don’t recommend the latter because: 1) It’s always packed, even before 9am on weekdays (tried and tested ?), 2) It’s freaking expensive (even their valet costs $12 SGD if I didn’t remember wrongly ?  ).

Do remember not to wear any eye make-up or deodorant. Your eyes must be absolutely clean for the procedure! I got to admit I had my eyelashes extension done by Belle on but because it’s a strand-by-strand extension, it doesn’t clump up dirt (can be cleansed easily) and most importantly, it’s extremely soft and comfy. So you have to make sure that your extensions are clean and comfy enough, or else I would recommend you to simply remove them before the LASIK surgery.

… Also do not apply perfumes or lotions as this can interfere with sterile machines and equipment!


You will be given some forms to read through before signing. Basically some consent forms and also important points to take note.  ?

Flapless & Bladeless Trans-epiLASIK [Pre-LASIK Evaluation]

Woah. Chen WeiLing's artwork. His red-memory series if I'm not wrong.

Woah. Chen WeiLing’s artwork. I still remembered the very first time I saw his red-memory series when I was overseas. The moment I stepped into the museum, his red-memory series captured my attention due to it being strikingly… red. Of course, it came with a price. ?

So, I was told to stop wearing soft contact lenses for at least 3 days before my pre-LASIK evaluation. But if you’re on hard lenses, you’ll need to stop at least for 10 days.


It is because contact lenses changes the shape of your cornea so you will need to abstain from contact lenses so that your cornea will be back natural shape BEFORE the pre-LASIK evaluation. Of course, for the LASIK surgery itself too which I chose to do the very next day to save me the hassle of abstaining from contact lens again.

So please don’t kay-kiang (aka smart Alec) by thinking that doesn’t matter. I’m sure you don’t want any inaccurate measurements as it might lead to severe consequences.

Also, I couldn’t drive to the centre because well, after the dilating eyedrops are applied (so that the doctor can examine your eye better), there is obviously a bit of recovery time.


During the pre-LASIK evaluation, I was led through a couple of tests. The staff were extremely thorough with their tests, and as they explained, it was meant to be able to assess my suitability and also whether which LASIK to go for. Here is a run-down of what I did:

  • Visual Acuity Test
  • Objective & Subjective Refraction
  • Tonometry Test
  • Slit Lamp Biomicroscope Test
  • Corneal Thickness Measurement
  • Orbscan
  • Zywave Aberrometry for Measurement of Higher Order Optical Aberrations
  • Detailed Dilated Fundus Examination
  • and of course consultation with Dr Tony, my surgeon!

Clearvision staff walking me through a presentation about what to expect and take note of.

The evaluation took about 2 hours in total. Generally speaking, most people should pass the test, unless there are certain anomalies which might restrict the type of procedures that could be done – such as having a super duper thin cornea or some eye-issues.

For me, I’ve a very serious case of corneal ulcer recently that left me with a scar on one of my eyeballs – and also the fact that I couldn’t wear contact lenses anymore…
