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.

Dry Eyes After LASIK Is Very Common, This S'porean Eye Doctor Has Some Solutions For You

Out of all the 5 basic senses you have, sight is considered as the most important sense. You perceive up to 80% of all impressions by means of your sight. Unfortunately, many of you take your eyesight for granted! A whooping 83% of young Singaporean adults are myopic. This is why LASIK surgery is so popular in Singapore. 

While a LASIK surgery can put an end to your short-sighteness, it also creates new problems such as dry eyes. DxD invited Dr Por Yong Ming, an experienced eye surgeon, to share his expert opinions on dry eyes after LASIK through a DxD Session

These are his best tips!

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

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

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.

7 Myopia Prevention Myths, Debunked

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.
