It depends a little bit on what is meant by safe. Technically speaking, the surgery is just the same whether a multi- or mono-focal lens is used, with the same very low risk of complications . The question rather, is - can you get used to the different visual experience between ...

This is a great question, and one that I ask my patient to give the most thought to when considering cataract surgery. Namely whether to use a premium multifocal lens, or to consider a monofocal lens. To be clear, the monofocal lens gives the best quality image / vision for a pa...

There are several aspects to consider in answering this question. Firstly, there is no cure for presbyopia/'Lao Hua' , which refers to the loss of autofocusing ability of the eye. There are no cures, there are only compromises. That is why, in order to get relatively good vision...

'Early' is a subjective term, and can mean different things to different people. The real question is: is the cataract affecting your vision, and by how much? A very early 'cataract' may not affect vision at all. In this case, the only possible benefit of doing the operation i...

The Complete Guide To Seeing An Eye Specialist In Singapore (2019)

The Complete Guide To Seeing An Eye Specialist In Singapore (2019)

As an eye doctor practising for more than 25 years, I’ve written this guide for Singaporeans who are looking for an Opthalmologist in Singapore. 

Most of us would agree that our eyes are our most treasured asset. Indeed most of us cannot imagine a life without sight!

However, as we age, some of us may experience eye problems such as

  • blurry vision
  • floaters
  • unexplained tearing
  • or eye pain
that will require the attention of an eye doctor.
 
This post covers all the topics I'm asked about most, such as:
  1. When to see an opthalmologist versus optometrist versus optician
  2. Which type of eye doctor to see 
  3. Private vs public eye clinics in Singapore, such as the SNEC
  4. How much it costs to see an eye specialist in Singapore
  5. How to pick the best eye doctor for your needs

Absolutely. This used to be most common previously due to a condition called posterior capsular opacity. This is a condition where even the tiniest residual lens epithelial cells left remaining in the lens capsular bag would migrate before the acrylic intraocular lens, and c...

Shortsightedness after cataract surgery can be treated in the same ways as for people who have not had cataract surgery. That is, you could wear spectacles, contact lenses, or consider having laser refractive surgery depending on your individual preferences and activities. Gen...
