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.

Ruined Complexion Final [Acne Scars and Skin Damage]

53 No tags Permalink

It’s about 3 months since my worst massive outbreak, ever, due to DF’s product. For those who are new here, you can read about it at Ruined Complexion I [Niks Maple Clinic 1st Consultation].

My face now is more or less under control. At the very least, I could get back to work now and what’s “left” could be covered by makeup. Hope I don’t jinx it by saying this. ? *fingers crossed*

Here is a photo of me with makeup!

I focused more on the base (BB cushion + concealer) + Less on the eyes (Belle 6D eyelashes extension + Brown eyeliner wing) + Cherry peeled-off lips tint + Majolica Macaron Blush.

For the past 3 months, I learnt different ways to attempt to portray a “clean” image/face. It’s hard to “look clean” when your face is filled with big, fat, angry acnes, pimples with pus and scars.

Yes, I know. The best way to aid in healing is not to put on any makeup, but some assignments and events are booked way before my unexpected outbreak happened – I couldn’t push them away…

It’s not all about hiding your flaws, but to look at least presentable (or rather, pleasant) for the occasion (Basic respect, get it?) like wedding, etc.

When you thought getting rid of acne and pimples is all that you wanted, you forgot about the aftermath – scars.

It’s like a double “punishment”? First, you fight to recover from the acne outbreak, and now you have scars and marks left behind by acne to remind you what you had been through. ?

Can’t wear contact lenses anymore?!

0 No tags Permalink

I’ve been wearing different brands of contact lenses since I started modelling. The one thing in common is they’re all colored contact lenses as they’ve always made my eyes look a little rounder and bigger, especially in photos. ?

True, they were not exactly unhealthy for eyes, but I didn’t have much choice, For obvious reasons (due to the natural of my job), I can’t wear glasses and since I had a degree is almost 700, and without lenses (or glasses, for that matter), I was effectively blind.

When I had my lenses or glasses on, things were okay – but when I took them off, I couldn’t see almost everything… not even my mobile phone’s screen! Everything was just in a blur.

Other than modeling assignments related to spectacles, I don’t think any other clients will want me to appear like this.

Some of you might ask, why not go for LASIK?

Yes. I wanted to – but like many of you, I didn’t really have the determination (and guts) to really go ahead with it since I was so used to wearing contact lenses.

I was like “Ok! Next month I shall do!”. But, when next month arrived, “Ehh.. Never mind! End of this year!” and the procrastination goes on and on for….

…6 years.

Ok. Part of the procrastination was due to the concern of how I would look without the help of coloured contact lenses that helps to make my pupil bigger, giving the illusion of bigger eyes. ?

See the difference now? With and without my glasses. 人,尤其是女人,为了爱美什么都可以忍。(Loosely translated: “For the sake of beauty, everything can be endured.”)

Back to the main point of this post, why I couldn’t wear contact lenses anymore..

I got corneal ulcer.

Ruined Complexion IV [Niks Maple Isolaz]

Extreme left corner after exiting from the lift at level 5.

It’s at the extreme left corner after exiting from the lift at Level 5.

I got to know about Isolaz on the 1st consultation with Dr. Ong (click here), but I thought that I might actually recover within a month or less since my outbreak was due to products rather than puberty (or any “natural” causes, for that matter).

Got to cover the stranger and nurse face in respect of their privacy.

Got to cover the stranger’s and nurse’s face in respect of their privacy. Oops!

Since my outbreak due to DF products (click here), I’ve stopped going to castings, assignments, photoshoots and the works. Not to mention – attending events. (我的饭碗 *哭*)

My recovery progression was pretty alright and slightly faster than others, but it’s not fast enough. I really can’t afford to wait anymore because some assignments were booked long ago and there’s no way I can postpone or cancel them.

That’s why I chose to go for Isolaz.

What is Isolaz?

Isolaz treatment is a unique acne therapy to help fight the root causes of acne, and also help clear existing acne while preventing future breakouts for a healthier looking complexion.

After registering at the counter, the nurse will bring you into a room to cleanse your face. I came with only sunblock (without makeup) so I was given Niks’ aroma cleanser (the orange bottle on the left) which smells heavenly! ?

For those with makeup, you will be given a lotion-based cleanser. I guess it’s their Niks Orange Removing-Cleansing Milk?

Will update y’all the next time if I come with makeup.

Niks’ nurse will then proceed to explain what might happen during and after Isolaz. Things like pain and the burning smell during treatment and the possibility of bruises and oil bubbles might occur.
