Meet Dr Claudine Pang, an ophthalmologist who has performed more than 10,000 eye procedures.
She started her own eye practice with a vision to increase public awareness on the importance of your retinas. The retina can be considered as the most critical part of our eyes! It has all the photoreceptors that are responsible for the images that we see. It is also the only tissue in the eye that cannot be replaced.
At her practice, she is very focused on eye wellness -- a concept of keeping the eye healthy at all times to prevent the occurrence of diseases. There is a wide range of retinal diseases that can go unnoticed at an early stage, so she advocates that people should go for eye checks regularly.
To her, eye wellness is a state of well-being. She believes that the key to achieving good vision is by preserving the good health of the retina.
Watch to find out why she's so intrigued by the retina, the conditions she has a special interest in, and her motto in life.
