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 ...

My dad in law did his cataract surgery under Dr Por and for an elderly person with previous bad experience with other doctor; Dr Por came in so caring and reassuring to his question and needs put his heart at ease as he's been delaying his cataract surgery for the longest time ever....

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
January 31st, 2018

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
January 31st, 2018

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.

Can I undergo LASIK if I have Corneal Dystrophy?

Hi Mei Corneal dystrophies are a very diverse range of genetic conditions affecting the cornea. Many of them disqualify people from having laser refractive surgery, but not all. So it depends. As I mentioned in the answer to your other question, Posterior Polymorphous Corneal ...

How do doctors manage Posterior Polymorphous Corneal Dystrophy?

Hi Mei Corneal dystrophies are by definition genetic conditions of the cornea (the clear window at the front of the eye), with no associated inflammation. One of these kinds is called 'Posterior Polymorphous Corneal Dystrophy' (PPMD). This condition affects the back layer of t...

What are the best treatment options for high myopia with high astigmatism?

Hi Kenneth As the other doctors have pointed out, refractive surgeries such as LASIK and Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) surgery are generally done for people who are above 21 years of age, and on a case by case basis for those between 18-21 years of age depending on stability of spectacle power. ...

What is the recovery process like after Epi-LASIK?

Hi Z Recently I wrote an answer about the recovery process after TransPRK . The recovery process after epi-LASIK is essentially the same as the above, as would be the case for any other form of 'surface' surgery like PRK. After epi-LASIK, the corneal surface is exposed and th...

What are the best treatments for ptosis in Singapore, and is ptosis Medisave claimable?

Hi Karen As mentioned by Dr Chui, there are a number of different treatments/procedures available to help a patient with ptosis and the best treatment would vary depending on many factors. In other words, there is no 1 or 2 best treatments. It might very well be that for a par...

How long does it take for vision to stabilize after ReLEx Smile?

Hi Lina Immediately after any kind of refractive surgery, whether PRK, LASIK or SMILE (or ICL), vision is usually misty on the first day. A lot of that mistiness goes away after the first day for LASIK, SMILE (and ICL) surgeries. However, it is quite common for a little bit of residual mistiness e...

What is the best treatment for convergence insufficiency?

Hi A Treatment for convergence insufficiency generally involves a combination of in -clinic computer program exercises (where available) and exercises you can do at home, such as stereograms and convergence cards.

What is the recovery process like after a TransPRK procedure?

Hi Tupac TransPRK works like any other 'surface ablation' procedure, including PRK, 'epiLASIK', and LASEK (alcohol assisted PRK). At completion of laser treatment in the above surgeries, there is a 'raw area' or 'abrasion' in the central ~8mm diameter circular zone of the cornea. With LASIK, this...

What should I do if I have overcorrected vision after LASIK?

Hi Jamie The most important question to ask yourself before wondering what to do is: How do you feel? In all likelihood, your vision is clear and you're feeling OK, in which case there is no need to do anything but to enjoy your vision. Longsightedness is a very misundersto...

How old is too old for LASIK surgery?

Hi Annette When everyone gets above 40 years of age, we get something called 'presbyopia' (or Lao Hua/老花 in Chinese). I think you probably mean that you have myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. Presbyopia is the gradual loss of autofocusing power of the eye. As you lose this a...
