MESSAGES TO

MEET THE EXPERT: DR TABITHA CHNG

Meet Dr Tabitha Chng, the most cheerful paediatric dentist who loves children. She has been creating beautiful smiles for children over a decade!

Before she decided on a specialisation, she was certain that she didn't want treat children. However, a chance encounter with a child patient in her 3rd year changed her perspective. 

Through that experience, she realised that she really enjoyed treating children. To her, there's nothing more satisfying than being able to see these children smile, laugh, and grow. 

Watch the video to get to know this passionate doctor and learn more about paediatric dentistry.

All kinds of laser refractive surgery, whether surface ablation (PRK/TransPRK/epiLASIK/LASEK-they are all the same), LASIK or ReLEx SMILE will induce some amount of post-operative dry eyes. However, if you look purely at the disturbance to the corneal nerve endings and how long they...

A dry eye state that starts after LASIK and persists for longer than a year can still recover over time (I have come across cases that took around 2 years or so) but yes, in some ways it is true that it is more likely to persist compared with a dry eye state that is just a few month...
Consult Doctor
Which eye drop is best depends on the situation. After LASIK, all patients are routinely given preservative free artificial tears such as Tears Naturale Free or Refresh Plus. Relatively liquid preparations such as these are usually used first as they feel comfortable and ‘refr...
Consult Doctor
Dry eye assessment, whether in association with a pre-LASIK assessment or not, involves both history taking (which can be simplified with various questionnaires) as well as an anterior segment eye examination using a slit lamp microscope, in conjunction with eyedrops such as fluores...
Consult Doctor
Those most at risk of dry eyes after LASIK, are those who have the driest eyes before LASIK. The causes of these pre-existing dry eyes are the same as those in other people not going for LASIK. They include long term contact lens use, and general factors including age, long hours...
Consult Doctor
Dry eye syndrome can span a spectrum from mild to moderate and severe. Treatment protocols also may vary from clinic to clinic, but it is worth mentioning the goals of treatment and the general principles that can be used to alleviate the problem. Among the problems associated wi...
Consult Doctor
Actually the main factors you should consider in whether to have LASIK done, is just the same as anyone else ie the same as those without dry eyes. These include, your main reasons for getting LASIK done-why you do not like glasses/contact lenses, how you feel about the potential...
Consult Doctor
Most patient’s eyes will get a bit drier in the time just after LASIK (first few weeks), and this is related to the surgery. Ie you cannot influence this aspect of it that much. You can however, minimise the effects of dryness on the eye after LASIK by Using eyedrops ...
Consult Doctor
First off, punctal plugs are generally not easily displaced, even with eye rubbing. This is especially true of the temporary types, which are inserted completely into the tear drainage channels. Secondly, it is advisable not to rub your eyes, whether or not you have had LASIK. Rubbi...
Consult Doctor
Punctal plugs are very effective for treating dry eyes that occur during waking hours, whether or not the situation is associated with LASIK. They help to reduce the need for eyedrops, so are very useful for people who have to use artificial tears very frequently eg instead of havin...

CATARACT SURGERY IS CHEAPER IN JB, DOESN'T MEAN BETTER. HERE'S HOW TO DO IT BETTER

Cataract Surgery Is Cheaper In JB, Doesn't Mean Better. Here's How To Do It Better undefined

As you grow older, some things just won't be the way they were. You’re going to have to come to terms with this. You may not be as good-looking, and your joints might not be as strong. Probably worst of all, your eyes may not be as sharp as they once were.

Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes, best described as a clouding of the lenses which leads to a decrease in vision.

Fortunately, the rapid advancement of technology and breakthroughs in medical science can fix many of the things that once made growing old such a pain.

Cataract surgery is just one of these many advancements, and it has been ranked the most common forms of surgery in Singapore, due to the country’s aging population. 

DxD Sessions recently featured Dr Claudine Pang. She weighed in on the topic of cataract surgery, and gave her advice on the common questions that Singaporeans often ask.
