Cataract Surgery Is Cheaper In JB, But Not Necessarily Better.
Cataract Surgery Is Cheaper In JB, But Not Necessarily Better.

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.
