Going to the doctor or the dentist is all part of taking care of one’s health. But what about seeing an eye doctor? Yes, eye exams at every age and life stage can help keep your vision at its optimum level. Certainly, many out there think their eyesight is just fine, but then they get that first pair of glasses or contact lenses, and suddenly everything, from fine print to street signs, finally comes into surprisingly clearer view!
On a more worrying scale, the National Eye Survey (NES) conducted in 2014 found some 216,000 Malaysians are in danger of becoming blind because of delays in cataract surgery. The survey also found that the condition also caused 272,000 others to be visually impaired.
Fortunately, more and more Malaysians are embracing the fact that regular eye exams are an important concern. These examinations can identify eye diseases and conditions early on when they are more easily treated.
Since opening its first outlet in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur back in 1995 and pioneering laser vision correction in Malaysia while being instrumental in making the technology available to people in the region, Optimax Eye Specialist Centre has grown from strength to strength, driven by this growing awareness about eye-associate health issues among Malaysians.
On the cusp of its 24th anniversary, Optimax aims to be a one-stop eye specialist centre for all Malaysians and it now has 13 branches situated all over the country. Throughout the years, it also has served over 210,000 satisfied patients seeking everything from laser refractive treatments to treatment for eye diseases and ocular conditions, including cataracts and glaucoma. All treatments offered are overseen by a team of 14 resident ophthalmologists for absolute peace-of-mind.
Optimax also offers the latest procedures to help improve eye sight for everyone. In this regard, its outlets are outfitted to be capable of undertaking the latest refractive eye surgeries, plus a full spectrum of other eye-care treatments including those treating cataracts, glaucoma, dry eyes and many more, giving people a lifechanging experience with a second chance at perfect vision, minus the need for glasses or contact lenses in their daily lives. Best of all, Optimax offers some of these eye treatment procedures with a lifetime warranty!
With a fast growing clientele and network of branches, Optimax has also established a fullfledged eye hospital in Penang, while another hospital is expected to be set up in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur very soon. It looks like the pioneers of laser vision correction in Malaysia are not quite done innovating in the field of perfect vision just yet!
