Had my Lasik done by Dr Daphne Han, which was not only fast from First Consultation to the Actual Surgery itself, but also the entire procedure was well-explained in detail, with my pre-op concerns well addressed. Her assistants are all extremely helpful and friendly as well, making...

I conducted my assessibility check-up in Feb 2018 but due to work committments have only just completed my procedure last week. Dr Daphne presented the 3 options for me and I chose ReLex Smile. The procedure itself was done at SNEC, was fast and painless with minimal discomfort. Dr ...

Highly recommend the Bilateral ReLEx SMILE procedure with Dr Han, zero pain and super fast recovery! She was very patient and thorough explaining the different procedures available, clarifying any doubts and questions I have with regards to the surgery. Follow ups and checks were...

Dr Han was very patient and thorough. She explained the pros and cons of each type of surgical option, and helped me to make an informed decision on the best surgical option for me. I opted to do the ReLEx SMILE procedure as it suits my active lifestyle the best. It is bladeless and the incision is...

My SMILE procedure with Dr Daphne was very smooth and successful. She is professional and caring at every step along the way. Pre-op procedure was explained clearly, and the smile surgery was almost pain free and efficient.

Would You Insert Permanent Contact Lenses Into Your Eyes? This Singaporean Ophthalmologist Explains The Benefits Of This Procedure
Would You Insert Permanent Contact Lenses Into Your Eyes? This Singaporean Ophthalmologist Explains The Benefits Of This Procedure

You may be familiar with disposable or monthly contact lenses but what about Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)? If you think it sounds like something out of a mind-bending sci-fi movie, don't worry! It's not as far-fetched as it seems. 

They are contact lenses used for correcting the vision. Unlike traditional contact lenses that requires you to remove them daily, these lenses are surgically placed inside your eyes. 

Senior Consultant Ophthalmologist Dr Daphne Han has more than 18 years of experience managing numerous types of eye-related conditions in the young and old.

She focuses especially on cataract surgeries, LASIK and other alternatives. Through DoctorxDentist Sessions, she shared more info about ICL, including its advantages (as well as possible complications). 

Here are some key takeaways.

Implantable Contact Lens is another vision correction procedure available in Singapore. ICL surgery is simple, and takes about 10 minutes to complete. A soft, flexible gel-lens is inserted between the iris and the eye lens through a small incision.

The concern about presbyopia in the forties after Lasik in the twenties or thirties is totally relevant. The truth is Lasik can be repeated or “enhanced”, either to treat residual short-sight or overcorrection causing ling-sightedness, so long as the corneal measure...

Sorry to hear that your post-Lasik dry eyes are taking a bit longer to lessen. Typically the single vial lubricating eyedrops should be quite safe to use long term, even at fairly frequent intervals. However, the bottled forms of lubricating eyedrops tend to contain more pr...

I generally caution my epilasik patients to refrain from any water contact with the eyes for a week after the procedure, and that means no splashing of any tap water etc into the eyes when showering and watching face. Also no eye make up for at least two weeks. If it is neces...

If you are assessed to be at risk of corneal ectasia, no matter how low, it definitely pays to be more vigilant about the type of procedure you undergo. The type of machine that made the assessment may read differently from another machine. However, once any one machine flag...

Low myopia may cause enough blurring of vision to some people, and if there is desire to improve eyesight and reduce dependence on glasses, there is no reason to object to seeking laser eye correction, as long as you know your choices. I once treated a patient with myopia as lo...

Indeed cataracts when they progress (which they almost certainly will) can potentially cause poor vision. Usually cataract-related blindness is reversible, i.e. once the cataract is removed, vision should be restored. However, cataracts may indirectly or directly contribute to other problem...

During cataract surgery, it is indeed possible to correct astigmatism at the same time. The astigmatism correctable is the astigmatism that arises from the cornea, and this may be different from what you actually wear in your glasses or contacts. There are a few ways astigmati...

Cataract surgery has evolved in recent years into a highly successful eye surgery, capable of removing a hardened lens and even improving one's eyesight free of power like myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and even presbyopia. For that, it is really a type of refractive surgery, ...

Removal of an ICL is usually not a high risk procedure, although as with every surgery, a certain level of risk does exist like infection, inflammation and slight operative damage to surrounding structures and tissues. However, one thing for certain is that after removal your refractive power...
