The Surgery

What is Smart TransPRK?

Smart TransPRK is a gentle, safe, no-touch, no flap, single-step procedure. The excimer laser firstly gently ablates the corneal epithelium, then smoothly proceeds to correct the refractive error.

The Procedure

Analgesic eye drops for pain relief

Laser ablates corneal epithelium

Laser corrects refractive error

Corneal epithelium regenerates over a couple of days

Why choose Smart TransPRK?

No Flap、Safest

Laser treatment is done on the surface of the cornea. No cut is made. There are therefore, no incision, nor flap-associated complications. This results in the most stable cornea, providing long-term patient safety.


There is no contact with the cornea throughout the whole procedure, only a speculum to hold your eyelids open. There is no suction, and no flap, therefore avoiding risk of retinal damage and corneal flap displacement respectively.

Single-step, no-touch procedure of AMARIS 1050RS

Wishvision utilizes the world’s newest technology, AMARIS 1050RS, to provide Smart TransPRK. This procedure is fast gaining popularity because of its elegance and simplicity. The whole procedure is done with one laser, without an incision nor flap creation. It is therefore ideal for active individuals and people working in jobs that have a high risk of eye trauma.

Better Visual Quality

80% of the population have some degree of high-order aberrations which can interfere with vision. Amaris 1050RS can help reduce some of these aberrations, resulting in better night-time visual quality.

Fastest:1050 Hz Pulse Rate,7D eye-tracking

7D eye-tracking enables a unique level of precision. It captures all eye motion (static as well as dynamic) during the procedure, for outstanding results. Changes in pupil size are detected, and the laser is adjusted as necessary. The automatic 7D eye-tracking ensures correct centering throughout the whole procedure.

Stable structure

The Smart TransPRK procedure creates a structurally stable cornea, so is particularly suitable for people with an active lifestyle. It preserves the most corneal thickness out of all the refractive surgery procedures, and therefore has the lowest risk regression and keratoconus.

Pre-Surgery Reminders


  • Refractive surgery does not prevent the occurence other eye pathologies such as retinal detachment or cataracts. Patients with high myopia have longer eye-balls, with an associated increased risk of retinal detachment. It is therefore important to continue to look after your eyes after the procedure and get regular check-ups.
  • All procedures have risks. We provide a comprehensive examination of your eyes to minimise this risk. To optimise your visual outcome, please follow the doctor's instructions regarding medication (eye drops) and healthy lifestyle habits.
  • Please inform us of any family history of eye disorders such as Fuch's endothelial dystrophy, which is a slowly progressive disease involving the cornea, and may lead to decreased vision.

Consultation Reminders

  • Wishvision is dedicated in providing the best service and ensuring the optimal health of your eyes. During the initial consultation, we provide a thorough examination and comprehensive discussion of refractive surgery, which may take up to 3 hours.
