However stress and hormonal imbalances are a major cause, which increases the activity of the oil glands. You seem to be suffering from papular acne, which can be treated with topical retinoids and...

Our grandparents had it, some of our parents had it...cataract surgery is the most common eye procedure amongst the older generation. Almost everyone will develop a cataract with age - it’s just a matter of time!

Despite it's prevalence, I've come to realise that many of my patients still have a poor understanding of cataracts.

By 2050, 5 million Singaporeans will be myopic. 15% of this group will have high myopia, which is defined as having a prescription above 500 degrees. It's associated with serious eye conditions, such as retinal detachment, cataracts and glaucoma.

Children who develop myopia by preschool or primary school are at an increased risk of high myopia in adulthood. The key to reducing high myopia is to delay early onset myopia in children.

Friends and family often ask me how to find the best dentist and dental clinic in Singapore for their needs.

As a clinician who's headed a dental group over the last 10 years, I've also seen many patients who are frequently confused over their dental treatment options. For example:

  • How come dental treatment costs can vary so much from one clinic to the next?
  • What are the different "kinds" of dentists and dental clinics in Singapore?
  • When should you see a GP dentist, versus a specialist?

In addressing these issues, I hope to share some of my personal insights as an "insider" to help you receive the best dental care for your condition.

You’ve thought long and hard about getting LASIK done in Singapore, but don’t know where to start. You're also too lazy to sift through all the information on the internet, or to go for one of those LASIK education seminars.

I don't blame you at all - the range of choices in terms of LASIK procedures, pricing and technologies offered by various eye centres here in Singapore can be bewildering.
