Gigi Leung Wing-kei can now throw away those thick glasses and contact lenses.

The singer-actor underwent laser eye surgery in London this week. She's in the city to take part in a month-long singing and dancing course.

Leung, 29, said she has wanted to have the surgery for some time, but couldn't because it meant she couldn't wear makeup for more than a week. She said being a student in a foreign country seemed like the time to have it done.

Leung (right) has been keeping a low profile since splitting with actor Ekin Cheng Yee-kin, and took a vacation in Japan after shooting a commercial during Chinese New Year.

She's due to start work on her next Cantonese and Putonghua albums later this month.
