Refractive error is a common vision problem. It occurs when the eye cannot clearly focus images onto the back surface of the eye (i.e the retina). This results in blurring of vision.
Cataract is the most common cause of reversible blindness. We provide phacoemulsification and lens implantation surgery with a wide range of artificial intraocular lenses such as monofocal, multifocal, toric and toric multifocal lens imp
Bladeless Cataract Surgery
Ophthalmic surgery by its nature requires uncompromising precision. The Femtosecond laser platform is designed for high precision and accuracy, to deliver better refractive “bladeless” cataract surgery.
Floaters And Flashes
The clear gel-like substance that fills the internal cavity of the eye is called “vitreous”. This is attached to the back surface of the eye called the “retina”.
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions resulting in optic (eye) nerve damage, which may lead to irreversible blindness if left untreated. Inappropriately high eye pressures
Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetes affects one in ten Singaporeans and Asians. 20% of people with diabetes may develop diabetic retinopathy (affecting the retina or back surface of the eye), which is the second most common cause of blindness after age-related mac
Squint (Eye Misalignment)
A squint, medically termed “strabismus”, is a condition of misaligned eyes. One or sometimes both of the eyes may turn inwards, outwards, or less commonly upwards or downwards. Most squints are the result of abnormal neuromuscular contro
Dry Eyes can occur when not enough tears are produced, normal tear flow is interrupted, tears drain away too quickly or there is an alteration of tear film layers due to disrupted production of tear film components.
Tearing In Adults & Children
Tears normally drain through small openings in the corners of the upper and lower eyelids called puncta and enter the nose through the nasolacrimal duct.
Age Related Macular Degeneration
The inner surface of the eye is lined by a thin layer of tissue called the retina. The retina is like the “film” portion of a camera, and processes images seen by the eye and sends them to the brain. The macula is the centre of the
Congenital droopy eyelids occur as a result of maldevelopment of the muscle which elevates the upper eyelid. Children wth droopy eyelids should be followed up closely as they can develop lazy eye as well as refractive errors.
A pterygium is a wing-like overgrowth of tissue arising from the “white” of the eye (conjunctiva), encroaching onto the “coloured” surface of the eye (cornea). It tends to occur in patients in their 30s-40s.
Accurate colour vision is essential for effective colour communication, especially for people who work / study in industries / courses involved in designing, inspecting or formulating materials requiring colour discrimination.
