Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Sharon Luk (陸詩韻) and Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) attended the press conference for World Glaucoma Day <世界青光眼日> this afternoon at Olympian City.

Sharon Chan revealed that she has −10.00 near-sightedness and considered laser eye surgery three or four years ago but, after her optometrist warned her of the possible side effects, she rejected the idea in hope that, with time, advancements in technology would remove the risks. She said that she had spoken to many artists who had undergone laser eye surgery, and, though the vast majority had been quite successful, Patrick Dunn (鄧梓峰) suffered from a few side effects.

Sharon Chan revealed that, when she needs to film for a period of over 12 hours or film crying scenes, she removes her contact lenses. However, she said that she only does this occasionally, because she finds it hard to interact with her co-stars when she can’t see properly. She admitted that she only has herself to blame for her poor vision, because, as a child, she thought it would be stylish to wear glasses so would glue herself close to the television screen.

Sharon Luk is also near-sighted, at −4.00 and −6.00 in her left and right eye respectively. She revealed that she, too, considered laser eye surgery. She said that during her time as a flight attendant, she would succumb to vanity, and wear her contacts for the entire duration of her lengthy flights. But now, she said, she knows better than to risk her vision and is sure to get an eye check-up annually. She added that her grandmother suffers from cataracts, so she has made it a habit to frequently buy eye-care food products for both her grandmother and herself.

Speaking of Sir Run Run Shaw (邵逸夫爵士) being admitted into hospital this week, Sharon Luk said that Sir Run Run was simply going for an annual check-up, and there was no particular concern for his health.
