Overview

Dr Por Yong Ming is a Consultant Eye Surgeon subspecialising in cataract, cornea and refractive surgery at Ophthalmic Consultants at the Gleneagles Medical Centre, Singapore. Dr Por graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1997 with honours and began ophthalmic training in the United Kingdom in 1999.

While in the UK, he trained at the renowned Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. He then returned to Singapore in 2001 and was appointed registrar at the Singapore National Eye Centre. Dr Por completed his training in ophthalmology in 2006. He subsequently trained as a fellow under Professor Donald Tan of the Singapore National Eye Centre in Cornea and External Eye Diseases as well as refractive surgery, becoming expert in LASIK, Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery, as well as corneal surgery including various forms of corneal transplantation such as anterior and posterior lamellar grafting. Dr Por’s strengths also include phacoemulsification cataract surgery.

In accordance with his training in refractive surgery, Dr Por places great importance in the refractive outcomes of his cataract patients so that for them, spectacle wear is minimised after cataract surgery. He is also trained as a comprehensive ophthalmologist and has extensive experience treating other eye diseases. Dr Por has published 24 papers in international journals and contributed chapters to textbooks on Ophthalmology. Dr Por is fluent in English, Malay, Mandarin and the Chinese dialects of Hokkien and Teochew.

Went for a consultation with Dr Por due to dry eyes after lasik (from another clinic) and Dr Por was extremely patient and assuring. He loves to smile. Unlike other doctors, Dr Por took the time to answer your questions and was not rushed with the consultation at all. The procedure ...

I've just completed the trans-PRK Lasik procedure with Dr Por. From my initial enquiry on this DxD site, what really made a difference was how Dr Por replied to my enquiry personally and promptly answered my subsequent emails, never missing a single one. Am thankful for his patience and attention t...

7 MYOPIA PREVENTION MYTHS, DEBUNKED

7 Myopia Prevention Myths, Debunked undefined

By 2050, 5 million Singaporeans will be myopic. 15% of this group will have high myopia, which is defined as having a prescription above 500 degrees. It's associated with serious eye conditions, such as retinal detachment, cataracts and glaucoma.

Children who develop myopia by preschool or primary school are at an increased risk of high myopia in adulthood. The key to reducing high myopia is to delay early onset myopia in children.

SECRETS TO MYOPIA - AN EYE SURGEON'S GUIDE TO REDUCING SINGAPORE'S PROBLEM OF SHORTSIGHTEDNESS

Secrets To Myopia - An Eye Surgeon's Guide To Reducing Singapore's Problem Of Shortsightedness undefined

Singapore has one of the world’s highest rates of myopia (or shortsightedness). We spend $311.5 million on prescription glasses each year.

More than HALF of us wear glasses by the time we are 12, compared to less than 20% for rest of the world.

Now here's the deal - the earlier in life you start becoming shortsighted, the higher your final spectacle degree tends to be. High myopia can give rise to other problems, such as an increased risk of retinal detachments, and an earlier onset of cataracts.

ASK DR POR YONG MING: DRY EYES & LASIK

Ask Dr Por Yong Ming: Dry Eyes & LASIK undefined

Dry eyes is the most common complication after LASIK. However, did you know that LASIK itself often isn't the cause of dry eyes? Most of these patients already suffer from dry eyes even before their LASIK procedure. 

If you are considering LASIK but worried about suffering from dry eyes, join Dr Por Yong Ming as he hosts a QnA session where he answers all your questions on dry eyes and LASIK.

First off, punctal plugs are generally not easily displaced, even with eye rubbing. This is especially true of the temporary types, which are inserted completely into the tear drainage channels. Secondly, it is advisable not to rub your eyes, whether or not you have had LASIK. Rubbi...

Most patient’s eyes will get a bit drier in the time just after LASIK (first few weeks), and this is related to the surgery. Ie you cannot influence this aspect of it that much. You can however, minimise the effects of dryness on the eye after LASIK by Using eyedrops ...

Actually the main factors you should consider in whether to have LASIK done, is just the same as anyone else ie the same as those without dry eyes. These include, your main reasons for getting LASIK done-why you do not like glasses/contact lenses, how you feel about the potential...

Dry eye syndrome can span a spectrum from mild to moderate and severe. Treatment protocols also may vary from clinic to clinic, but it is worth mentioning the goals of treatment and the general principles that can be used to alleviate the problem. Among the problems associated wi...

Those most at risk of dry eyes after LASIK, are those who have the driest eyes before LASIK. The causes of these pre-existing dry eyes are the same as those in other people not going for LASIK. They include long term contact lens use, and general factors including age, long hours...

Dry eye assessment, whether in association with a pre-LASIK assessment or not, involves both history taking (which can be simplified with various questionnaires) as well as an anterior segment eye examination using a slit lamp microscope, in conjunction with eyedrops such as fluores...

Which eye drop is best depends on the situation. After LASIK, all patients are routinely given preservative free artificial tears such as Tears Naturale Free or Refresh Plus. Relatively liquid preparations such as these are usually used first as they feel comfortable and ‘refr...

A dry eye state that starts after LASIK and persists for longer than a year can still recover over time (I have come across cases that took around 2 years or so) but yes, in some ways it is true that it is more likely to persist compared with a dry eye state that is just a few month...

All kinds of laser refractive surgery, whether surface ablation (PRK/TransPRK/epiLASIK/LASEK-they are all the same), LASIK or ReLEx SMILE will induce some amount of post-operative dry eyes. However, if you look purely at the disturbance to the corneal nerve endings and how long they...

During a LASIK operation, a thin superficial layer of cornea is created and temporarily peeled back to allow laser treatment of the underlying tissue. This is called the ‘lasik flap’, and is what provides the quick and painless recovery after LASIK. Some nerve endings...

Hi, although you've sent a pretty good picture, it's a bit difficult to say for sure what it is based on the picture alone. One possibility, especially if it has been there for years with no change, is of a 'mole' or naevus. Assuming that it is a naevus, such lesions are harmless and represent onl...
