Dr Lim is the Medical Director and Senior Consultant of JL Eye Specialists. He is an eye surgeon who specializes in cataract, refractive surgery (LASIK), cornea and general ophthalmology.

Prior to setting up his private practice, Dr Lim was Senior Consultant and Deputy Head of Cornea and Refractive Surgery at the National Healthcare Group Eye Institute @ Tan Tock Seng Hospital providing quality eye care to both local and foreign patients for over 17 years.

After being awarded the Singapore Ministry of Health’s Health Manpower Development Program Scholarship in 2011, he underwent a clinical fellowship at the prestigious Baylor College of Medicine in United States of America under the tutelege of Professor Douglas Koch, Professor Stephen Pflugfelder, Associate Professor Hamill Bowes and Dr Mitchell Weikert. He also underwent fellowship with Professor Theo Seiler at IROC in Zurich, Switzerland.

Dr Lim has a keen interest in the training and education of junior ophthalmologists, and in medical research. His research work encompasses topics such as intraocular lens calculations in highly myopic eyes, astigmatic corrections in cataract surgery, post-refractive cataract surgery outcomes, refractive surgery outcomes, visual function assessment, dry eyes management and therapeutics of cornea infections. He has since developed a patent for visual function assessment, and his written works have been published in major peer-reviewed journals.

Dr Lim’s knowledge and expertise has brought him to many regional and international conferences where he shares his wealth of experience as a guest speaker. He has also published book chapters and is an examiner for post-graduate examinations. His efforts have been recognized overseas when he was awarded the inaugural Baylor College of Medicine Fellow Teaching Award in 2012 in Houston, Texas.

ASK DR JIMMY LIM: CATARACTS

Ask Dr Jimmy Lim: Cataracts undefined

Did you know that as we age, every single one of us will develop cataracts at some point in our lives? It's only a matter of how mild or severe the cataract formation is. Typically, people develop cataracts at around 50 to 70 years of age. However, certain things can cause you to get them at a much younger age. 

Dr Jimmy answered questions from readers on:

  • How to prevent cataracts
  • Cataract causing damage to eyesight
  • How doctors choose the best type of lens
  • When to avoid cataract surgery
  • How to take care of a patient after catarct surgery
