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.

I'm Ase Wang, And I Froze 12 Of My Eggs Because I'm Not Ready To Have A Baby Yet. AMA! undefined

In Singapore, single women are not allowed to freeze their eggs. Ase decided to have her eggs frozen in Thailand because she was 36 and not ready to have a baby yet. She also knew that there was a chance she would not be able to have kids naturally due to low egg reserves.

CAN TCM PHYSICIANS IN S'PORE DIAGNOSE EVERYTHING JUST BY TAKING YOUR PULSE? THIS NO-HOLDS BARRED Q&A REVEALS ALL

Can TCM Physicians In S'pore Diagnose Everything Just By Taking Your Pulse? This No-Holds Barred Q&A Reveals All undefined

Conventional methods don’t necessarily equate to being the most effective. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been steadily gaining traction in Singapore and plenty of folks seek out all kinds of cool (and intriguing) TCM treatments like herbal medication, acupuncture and cupping.

Let’s face it. Many of us have a strange and profoundly inexplicable fear of any medicinal practices that lie outside the norms of the mainstream, viewing them with a slightly raised eyebrow (or two) and even dismissing them outright as new age mumbo jumbo (even though they are often ancient).

It probably goes without saying that these fears aren’t always justified. After all, it's been officially recognised and regulated by MOH since 2004. Furthermore, shouldn’t ancient techniques that have been applied over centuries of practice (since before you were crawling around in diapers) hold some degree of weight?

Physician Lee Jin Shun, a registered TCM physician with Eu Yan Sang has a thing or two to say about this.

DxD Sessions features his opinions on TCM treatments in Singapore as he answers the most common questions surrounding the topic.

Here's Why You Should Never See A Chiropractor In S'pore For Back Pain, According To An Orthopaedic Surgeon With 20 Years Experience undefined

Dr Henry Chan is an orthopaedic surgeon who previously spearheaded the Joint Replacement Unit in a major teaching hospital in Singapore. 

In a popular DxD post on back pain that's been read nearly 100,000 times, he gives an insightful low-down on the common causes of back pain, as well as the definitive method of treating it.

In between, he sprinkles plenty of amusing gems, referencing everything from the Star Wars Universe, to how treating back pain came to be a multi-million dollar industry in Singapore. 

His original guide is nearly 2000 words long, but for those who prefer the TLDR version, here are the key take-home messages.
