The Complete Guide To Seeing An Eye Specialist In Singapore (2019)

The Complete Guide To Seeing An Eye Specialist In Singapore (2019)

Most of us would agree that our eyes are our most treasured asset. Indeed most of us cannot imagine a life without sight!

Yet ironically for most of us, eye care doesn’t go much beyond making that fancy new pair of glasses at your neighbourhood optical shop or restocking on eyedrops at the pharmacy.

However, as we age, some of us may experience eye problems such as

  • blurry vision
  • floaters
  • unexplained tearing
  • or eye pain
that will require the attention of an eye doctor.
 
Even if no eye complaints arise, it is always a good habit to visit your eye doctor at least once a year. This is to ensure that your eyes are healthy and well, especially if you are over the age of forty or if you have family history of eye disease.
 
As an eye doctor practising for more than 25 years, I’ve written this guide for all people who are looking for "Eye Specialist Singapore" or "Ophthalmologist Singapore".

This Singapore Plastic Surgeon Discusses The Link Of Textured Breast Implants To Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

This Singapore Plastic Surgeon Discusses The Link Of Textured Breast Implants To Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

Breast implants are prosthetics that are used to alter the shape, size, and contour of a person’s breasts. They are commonly used for breast reconstruction in women after breast cancer surgery or for correction of deformities from birth. They are also used to augment the natural appearance of breasts in women seeking cosmetic enhancements. Getting breast implants is increasingly common and patients have been seeing positive results. However, recent developments have led to a correlation between breast implants and BIA-ALCL (Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma).

There has been an increased incidence of BIA-ALCL reported mainly in America, Europe, and Australia over the years and Singapore has seen it’s first case recently. What is this condition and how does it affect patients who have been diagnosed or who are at risk of being exposed? Here are facts and concerns surrounding BIA-ALCL and the relation to other potential issues regarding breast implants.
