LASIK overview

LASIK is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity.

For most people, LASIK provides a long-lasting alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Read this post for more information on LASIK treatment in Singapore.

Cataract surgery overview

Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye that has developed an opacification, which is referred to as a cataract.

Many peoples' first symptoms are strong glare from lights and small light sources at night, along with reduced acuity at low light levels.

During cataract surgery, a patient's cloudy natural cataract lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens to restore the lens's transparency. Following surgical removal of the natural lens, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) implant is inserted.

Well over 90% of operations are successful in restoring useful vision, with a low complication rate. d.

I saw Dr Pang because I experienced blurred vision in both eyes. Dr Pang was careful in making a diagnosis, and was attentive to my needs throughout the treatment and my healing process. This helped me feel more confident that I would recover. She also has a gentle and steady manner which is very reassuring.

Dr. Pang is well deserving of a 5 star rating. I chose Dr. Pang several years ago after stopping by several eye clinics, reviewing the Internet, and searching through bio information. I experienced a retina hole/tear as well as large floaters a couple decades ago. After a laser “stitching” for the retina in the UK and a laser treatment for the floaters in the USA age takes its toll and the floaters were increasing in size and number.

Concern over retinal degeneration was also a factor. A third part of my astigmatism was worsening my ability to see both far and close. Thus I was looking for someone who performed procedures for the entire eye, not just a “Lasik shop.” I chose Dr. Pang based on her background, professional experience, and her wide range of services which she actually performs. The fact that she has a focus on children’s eyes solidified my choice as dealing with children takes a special touch.

My choice proved correct. The floaters were obvious during the examination and a surprise was the finding of a mild cataract in one eye with an onset in the other. My (mis)-understanding was that in Singapore they did not treat floaters. Dr. Pang had two options. One was the laser treatment which does not remove floaters but fragments them into small pieces which then settle to the bottom of the vitreous – which is what I had done in the US around 2004.

The more permanent but much more invasive procedure was to drain the degenerating vitreous fluid and backfill with a neutral saline type fluid which would be performed in conjunction with the cataract removal. Dr. Pang performed the procedures on both eyes, a year apart, with great success. The floaters are gone.

The lens replacement for the cataracts has not only given back greater clarity, brilliance, and color rendition that had been lost over the years but cleared almost all the astigmatism. For the first time in my life that I can remember I can fully function without glasses (and my driver’s license has been changed to reflect that). Two other points that impress me about Dr. Pang and further solidify my confidence and trust in her. One is she has written and edited several chapters in the revised “The Retinal Atlas” and she does volunteer/pro-bono work in villages and areas lacking adequate specialist health care such as in Cambodia. …leo

When you meet Dr. Pang you immediately notice the full attention she gives you with a great smile. Having a problem in my left eye I was indeed worried that I shall ne be able to regain my full vision. She explained in simple English what happened to my eye and the course of treatment that she recommended. No pressure on her part and always smiling. I am still under her medical care and feel fully confident that I am having the best medical care with a caring doctor and her friendly staff. I feel I am a person not just a medical case. Thanks Dr Pang.

Very positive. Dr. Claudine Pang is experienced, non-pushy and affirmative. Not only is she thorough in her checks, she makes time for patients and engages them in conversation, making them feel at ease throughout consultation. She is skillful and knows her job well, giving sound advice, but ultimately, respecting patients views/choice. No airs at all about her. For a reasonable price to charge for consultation/review, I'd commend her on her professionalism, work ethics and friendliness.

My daughter and I have been to see Dr Claudine Pang on various occasions. She is personable, professional, and meticulous. When we came down with conjunctivitis, she took care to follow up with us on a regular basis. I liked that she made certain it was completely gone before discharging us from her care to Ensure that the virus does not spread. I recently went to her with complaints of blurred vision and she diagnose me with dry eyes. Dr Pang then prescribed suitable eyedrops and asked if I wanted my tear ducts plugged. I was hesitating because I have had them plugged before by another ophthalmologist and it felt like pencil leads being forced in. She could sense my hesitation and assured me that she is much gentler than the other ophthalmologist. I went ahead with it and did not feel a thing - this is a testament of her steady hands and gentleness.

In a world filled with digital devices, it’s inevitable when myopia strikes the kids. Dr Pang provided an invaluable 1st consultation to fully assess the condition of my kids eyes. She also recommended the appropriate eyedrops to stabilize the effects of myopia. I was very reassured and the kids will be back for the follow up consultation. One can never be too picky when it comes to choosing a doctor for the children.

For fear of turning blind, I had a very good experience with Dr. Claudine Pang. She made sure all my queries were answered and her diagnosis is very good.

I was anxious after an sports-related incident that left me with blurred vision. Got in touch with Dr. Claudine and an appointment was made within 24 hours to have my vision checked.

I noticed that clinic was rather busy, yet I was grateful for the efficient scheduling which I learnt subsequently was really to exclude retinal detachment. Dr. Claudine was patient with me (no pun intended) and empathetic. After a thorough review of the pre-consult tests and her own examinations, I was fortunately cleared for retinal detachment.

She continued to explain what probably happened to my eyes in non-medical jargon. The consult was never rushed at any point and she exudes a sense of confidence that felt that I was speaking to a friend! I would personally recommend Dr. Claudine any friend who may need to seek out an eye specialist.

Had my Lasik done by Dr Daphne Han, which was not only fast from First Consultation to the Actual Surgery itself, but also the entire procedure was well-explained in detail, with my pre-op concerns well addressed. Her assistants are all extremely helpful and friendly as well, making the entire process a pleasant one.

Best decision I ever made! I was initially terrified of getting an eye procedure done, but Dr Tony Ho and team were so patient and kind and walked me through the entire procedure. After the op, they also diligently followed up in intervals to make sure my recovery was on track. I was so impressed that I immediately recommended them to all my friends, who also had similarly great experiences with him. I've had three years of clear vision now and I still maintain that it's the best decision I ever made.

I conducted my assessibility check-up in Feb 2018 but due to work committments have only just completed my procedure last week. Dr Daphne presented the 3 options for me and I chose ReLex Smile. The procedure itself was done at SNEC, was fast and painless with minimal discomfort. Dr Daphne was calm which helped calm the nerves! Post-procedure, I gained full vision the next day and couldn't be happier with the outcome. I have had 3 friends asking me about my experience and I have been recommending Dr Daphne without hesitation.

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 he performed on my eyes was surprisingly pain-less. I have to say initially I was not sure it will work, but my dry eyes have definitely improved! Thanks Dr Por, you are awesome! :)

Highly recommend the Bilateral ReLEx SMILE procedure with Dr Han, zero pain and super fast recovery! She was very patient and thorough explaining the different procedures available, clarifying any doubts and questions I have with regards to the surgery.

Follow ups and checks were also very detailed and prompt after the surgery, and Dr Han personally texted me to check on my recovery! I highly recommend Dr Han for her expertise and attentiveness.

Dr Han was very patient and thorough. She explained the pros and cons of each type of surgical option, and helped me to make an informed decision on the best surgical option for me. I opted to do the ReLEx SMILE procedure as it suits my active lifestyle the best. It is bladeless and the incision is extremely small, with no flap created. This meant that I could go back to exercise like Muay Thai without worrying about the flap popping back open if I were to get in an unfortunate accident during Muay Thai for example. Recovery time was very short, and having perfect vision again has been a life changer! I highly recommend Dr Han for her expertise and patience.

I want to thank Dr Ho & Clearvision team for allowing me to enjoy clear vision once again! I've always been wearing contact lenses since I was 16 years old and I would feel awkward or uncomfortable if I were to wear my glasses out of the house.

Hence I considered to opt for LASIK. After much research of the various clinics, I chose Dr Tony Ho as he seems very experienced and accompanied with good reviews. Clearvision also has the latest Transprk technology, which is a non flap based procedure.

Was quite anxious before the surgery but with the reassurance of Dr. Ho and the clear vision team, everything went along smoothly. Recovery went by without a problem after 4-5 days and soon my vision started to become clear! I can finally live free from my troublesome glasses and contact lenses. Definitely the best choice ever! Thank you once more Dr. Ho!

More than 5 years of lenses' wear & bad contact lens practise left me with two contact lens infection scares, during which my eye doctor warned me that I might lose my vision if I keep on having these infections.

They told me to consider LASIK instead. I felt scared to do cut and flap LASIK after hearing a lot of horror stories. I am also uncomfortable with living with a permanent flap in my eyes.

I've friends who had undergone LASIK many years back, but still had to put on lubricating eye drops due to dry eyes. Relex is basically cutting the eye as well, but to a smaller degree.

After a friend's recommendation & further research, I came across Dr Tony Ho from Clearvision, which has the Transprk technology that doesn't cut the eye AT ALL! Was very happy to find out that I was suitable for the surgery, despite slight cornea scars on my cornea.

I remember that I was a bundle of nerves on the surgery day. Both the staff and Dr Ho had to reassure me that it won't be painful as there are numbing eye drops. True enough, it was painless! After a short 5-10 mins in the operating theatre, I walked out with clear vision. Transprk was the best choice of investment ever. Thanks Dr Ho!

On the first appointment with Dr Chan, he gave me a brief but comprehensive review on the procedures I was suitable for. I went with ReLEx SMILE in the end as I understand that it has a fast rate of recovery and truth be told, it really was!

In 1 week's time, I went from -5.50 with -1.50 astigmatism to 6/6 in both eyes and there was minimal discomfort. Dr Chan and his staff were really professional and did a great job in calming me down before and during the surgery.

It was a great experience. Dr Chan was friendly and willing to answer any questions that I've had. The process was painless and fast.

Immediately after the procedure, I was able to see quite clearly. It did feel a little cloudy. On the night of the procedure, I was able to watch television and look at the distance easily. On the second day, I can see really far already.

Also, I do not feel that I had dry eyes at all. Very happy that the procedure has gone so well for me! All the staff are friendly too!

The main reason I decided to do an eye surgery was because I disliked wearing spectacles. I have multiple family members and relatives who have done LASIK and I have already decided that I wanted to do it in the future.

I found Atlas Eye and came here for the evaluation. It costs $19, which is very reasonable even if you decide not to do the surgery after the eye checks. The staff here are very friendly and helpful and made me feel very comfortable here.

I learned that Atlas Eye provides 3 types of eye surgeries, and I decided to go for the most expensive one (ReLEx SMILE) because it has the smallest wound (4mm).

I met Dr Chan, who also made me feel very comfortable. He is not the kind of doctor who just wants to earn your money.

He explained the details of all 3 procedures very clearly and because I was suitable for all 3, he did not try to persuade me to take any procedure and left the choice totally up to me.

On the day of the surgery, I did not feel scared, probably because I felt that I could trust Dr Chan. He is confident and knows what he is doing and I felt safe during the surgery as well.

Now, about 1.5 weeks after the surgery, my eye tests show that I have perfect eyesight. There was no discomfort for me after the surgery and I would highly recommend the ReLEx SMILE procedure here at Atlas Eye.

My experience with Dr David Chan and the entire staff at Atlas Eye has been well beyond my expectations.

At no point in time did I feel that my questions about the procedure or test results were a bother to Dr Chan. He took his time and even encouraged me to ask as many questions as I wanted.

What stuck out most however, was the fact that he did not try and push a sale, but rather answer objectively and inform me about all the necessary information.

Overall, my only regret was not doing the procedure sooner as the feeling of being able to see clearly without glasses is amazing. A big thank you to Dr Chan and his team!

Dr Chan is a wonderful doctor who is detailed and meticulous. He also instills a sense of confidence in patients as he really knows his stuff.

It is not just for my LASIK, but for my parents' cataract and other eye-surgeries, I observed the same high level of professionalism and care from Dr Chan.

I would also like to commend the wonderful service and care given by his staff - from the frontdesk personnel, those doing the eye-checkups for me and prepping me for the surgery (trying to calm me down and putting me at ease).

They really made the difference for me and I can see that they all work very well together in a team.

I also learnt from his staff that Dr Chan will not anyhow recommend people who are borderline cases or not entirely suitable for LASIK to just go for the surgery. This shows that he is an ethical doctor who puts his patients' well-being and health as the primary interest. Staff giving good feedback of their own boss is also a good sign that Dr Chan is a competent leader.

I feel that this is very important for a clinic to provide holistic care to patients. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr Chan and Atlas Eye. You know that you will be in good hands.

Very good experience, was very comfortable the whole way and the team was very clear with all the instructions.

They were very thorough with all the explanation and made me feel comfortable, although I was slightly nervous when I was about to go in for the surgery.

They checked in with me before all my appointments to ensure that I had read and followed through with the necessary steps before the surgery.

The whole surgery process was very smooth, and everything was painless and exactly what they had prepared me for.

Dr Chan made me feel comfortable as well and reassured me through the whole process that it was going to be okay, which gave me the reassurance I needed to be calm.

It's Day 1 after the surgery today, and my vision has improved to almost 6/6. Highly recommend Atlas Eye for anyone who wants to do the SMILE procedure.

Being a spectacle wearer for almost a decade (Short-sightedness -3.25 and astigmatism -1.00), the idea of laser eye surgery is particularly appealing. In Oct 2017, I decided to do a research on the available Laser Eye Surgery procedures in Singapore as well as a capable and reputable surgeon.

After much consideration and contemplation, I finalised my decision on DR DAVID CHAN, the Medical Director of the clinic; ATLAS EYE SPECIALIST CENTRE @ Paragon Medical Centre, #07-09.

What attracted my attention is his outstanding portfolio. DR DAVID CHAN is fully qualified and registered with the UK and Canadian Medical Council as well as Singapore. In addition, he was also the a surgical instructor at the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) and University of Calgary in Canada. These qualifications that he possessed speak greatly of his experiences in the field of optometry, which further boosted the amount of confidence I have to allow him to operate on my eyes.

Moreover, the clinic also provides all THREE main surgical procedures that are available in the market, allowing a higher flexibility in the choices. In addition to the doctor's experiences and skill, another main consideration factor I had is also the quality of the customer service, which after several reviews from my friends who also visited this clinic particularly mentioned that the service is top-notched.

I've heard many poor reviews from my friends where they felt like that they were in a production line during the day of the surgery. I then decided to book a LASIK suitability screening with the clinic and was directed to Miss Mei who is extremely pleasant and friendly to communicate with (she later also became my main POC when I've any doubts with the procedures and medications).

DAY OF LASIK SUITABILITY SCREENING: I was booked for a 3 hour session in the clinic, where they evaluate the suitability of my eyes for Laser Eye Surgery procedures. The staffs that performed the tests are highly professional and friendly.

After a series of tests, it ended off with a personal consultation with DR DAVID CHAN as he shared his professional advice. I was told that I was suitable for all the 3 generation Laser Eye procedures. Through out the procedure, there was not a moment of hard-selling. The overall procedure was extremely smooth and assuring.

After much contemplation, I decided to go for the ReLEx SMILE Surgery (3rd Generation), which DR DAVID CHAN highly advocates, who also happened to be one of the pioneering specialists capable of such procedure in Singapore.

This clinic does not offer same day suitability screening and surgery unlike other clinic, with the justification that the pupil is dilated during the screening procedure. DR DAVID CHAN believes that it is essential for the pupils to "reset" in order to facilitate the operation procedures.

As a patient, this strongly boost the confidence I have with the doctor, especially when he is a perfectionist (like myself).

DAY OF SURGERY: Finally the day of the surgery (2 days after the screening), the day where I can finally live comfortably without the troubles of spectacle. I arrived at 0830 for the surgical appointment and was greeted with warm smiles from the staffs. Upon payment, I donned the surgical gown followed by antiseptically cleaning my eyes area. I was quite anxious as it was my first time doing a surgery.

As i entered the OT, this feeling quickly dissipated as the highly trained nurse proceeded with the necessary pre-operation procedures. Everything was extremely smooth like a well-oiled machine.

DR DAVID CHAN was also extremely assuring throughout the operation which really eased the nervousness I was experiencing.

The whole surgery was PAINLESS and in less than 30 minutes, I was out of the OT! (Speaking about efficiency). The nurse then proceeded with issuing my medicine and BAM, I'm done. I was then advised to sleep as much as possible after the surgery (which I did) and also to apply the eye medications religiously.

DAY AFTER SURGERY (POST OP DAY 1): Upon waking up, I was amazed that I could see everything so clearly! It was surreal, as I could look at the wall clock in my room without fumbling around for my spectacles.

I had minimal effects of dry eyes except in the morning, which was quickly eased after applying the lubricating eye drops.

Back at the clinic, I did an eye test with DR DAVID CHAN and was told that everything was recovering nicely and I have a 6/6 vision. This was totally beyond my expectations. I was then advised to lubricate my eyes generously in order to allow the eyes to be primed for recovery.

Overall, I had an extremely pleasant experience in the clinic. I'm beyond grateful for their effort to make everything as comfortable as possible. The only regret I have is not doing this earlier!

One of my former pupils told me he had attended a forum where Dr Lee Jong Jian from Raffles Hospital talked about eye problems.

I saw Dr Lee on Aug 6. He told me I had cataract, glaucoma and epiretinal membrane in both eyes. My glaucoma wasn't that bad, he said, but the other two conditions were serious.

I had never heard of epiretinal membrane and asked what it was. Apparently, it is a growth over the retina of the eye. He said the cause is often unknown but it needed to be "peeled" away.

A week later, I had laser surgery for glaucoma. A week after that, I had surgery to correct the other two problems in my left eye.

Now, I feel the improvement in my vision. The distortion and slanting images are gone. My right eye will be operated on in a couple of months for the same conditions.

When I first met Dr Billy Tan, he looked anything but a surgeon. He was down to earth, kind and personalised each patient’s presence by personally calling out to each patient.

Dr Khoo is apparently quite a well-known ophthalmologist and recognised as the best eye specialist for children.After putting my son through several tests and checking his eyes thoroughly, the doctor concluded that his eyesight degradation was the result of an eye condition known as entropion.The doctor gave us two options and told me to consider both options carefully before making a decision. 

I want to add here that the doctor was great..he was very detailed in his explanation and spent quite some time with us, giving me as much information as possible. It was a different experience with the doctor at the refraction clinic who was very flustered (there were many patients waiting) and rushed through the tests.

One year after the surgery our son's eyesight is absolutely normal and I am so happy and grateful to have seen Dr Khoo!

Little did I know when my squash playing suffered from poor vision that the optometrist would recommend Dr Goh, who would eventually give me what I like to call ‘bionic vision’. Since my first pair of glasses in 5th grade in the US, I haven’t seen so clearly! Thank you to Dr Goh and his warm, welcoming and helpful staff for guiding me to new, cataract-less vision. All the best!

If runners are interested in undergoing lasik surgery, they can consider this clinic. It just takes you 10 mins and 4 days of rest in total. Dr Jon Goh did mine a couple of years ago and the result is super good. Now I can run without my glasses or contact lens. It indirectly improved my running actually. I can run my sundown ultra without worrying about wearing contact lens for long hours.

Dr Yeo adjusted my consultation and operation with my holiday and he only required me to spare 4 days. Everything was efficient and convenient. Dr Yeo was very friendly and his explanation of the procedure was very thorough. The surgery was a success and I cannot be happier.

My grandmother was experiencing increased difficulty with vision at night. I thought it was because of old age. But then she told me she started seeing "halos" around lights. I became worried so I got her checked by an eye doctor. That was when we got to meet Dr Steve Seah. He told us that my grandma has a cataract. He advised her to have a surgery since her impaired vision is affecting her daily life. He shared with us all the details regarding the operation. My grandma was on-board with it so we agreed to schedule her for a surgery.
Today, my grandmother’s vision is better. She is not complaining about cloudy or blur eyesight. And I have Dr Steve to thank for everything. I highly recommend him to other patients!

My sister was diagnosed with Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG). According to Dr Steve, it means that her drainage sites are being clogged by very tiny collections of material and does not function normally. Dr Steve Seah advised her to have surgery in order to prevent further vision loss. He was absolutely comforting throughout the operation. He was calm, and he answered all our questions confidently and in complete details, which I appreciated very much. After the surgery, I noticed that my sister was improving and was getting better. We are absolutely blessed to have Dr Steve as our doctor. I wish that all patients who are suffering with their eye problems will experience to be under his care as well.

My friend's parents had cataract surgery done by Dr Law and they are very happy so she recommended this clinic to me 5 years ago. I have been visiitng Dr Law's clinics 5-6 times per year for eye allergy and has been very happy with my treatment every time. My father has glaucoma and cataract and also go there twice a year for pressure check and once a year to the Paragon clinic for visual field test. His condition is controlled with medication.

My consultation is direct and to the point, fast diagnosis and treatment. Good for me since I have to go many times a year, I just want to get in, get diagnosed, collect eyedrops and get on with life. Fast consultation time may not be everyone's preference. If you prefer talking a long time with the doctor to feel more assured or just want to get your money's worth (like a spa treatment, longer time = more worthwhile?), this is not the place for you.

They are also extremely sincere, compared to other established LASIK clinics I had been to for first consultations. I can finally see without relying on contacts or glasses again, and the healing has gone by so smoothly. This clinic comes highly recommended and I trust them 100 percent. Thank you guys!

I was super happy when Dr. Lee Sao Bing told me that I am suitable for Intralase Lasik at his clinic! You don’t know how many good reviews I have heard about him both online and offline. Some of my friends got their lasik done by him too! I immediately booked my lasik surgery date after the consult and it was only one week apart.

Dr. Lee recommended me the Intralase method (with Flap) and boy, I was glad I went ahead with this !The procedure was quick and Dr Lee was reassuring me and distracting me throughout the procedure as I was very anxious. I had zero pain after the surgery and after 7 hours I woke up to have perfect vision!!!

During the review, I told Dr. Lee how amazed I was with the results, I could see the joy in his eyes too. He felt me. He felt how happy I was. A week later, I went back to the clinic for my review and I was told that my eyesight is perfect!

Excellent all around. I did my research and spoke to friends on who is a good eye surgeon for LASIK surgery and Shingawa Eye Centre's Dr Lee popped up quite a few times (helped that I knew quite a few people in the medical field too!).

Waiting times were minimal, service was excellent and most importantly, I've had minimal side effects and no complications (so far) from the surgery. Dr Lee explained everything very clearly and outlined the risks and complications specifically to my case. The nursing staff & optometrists were also very competent and helpful.

The wait for the scheduled appointment was reasonable. Even though the doctor had many patients to see, he answered every question my mother posed with great patience. The procedure was efficiently done and just as the doctor said, painless. My mother was even happier after the results of the surgery showed. The follow up check ups were fast and efficiently done. We spent no longer than 45 mins in the clinic. She now is glasses-free for both far and near.

Dr. Marc Tay suggested i do lasik + lasik xtra to prevent the risk of getting ectasia (note that i am approved of the surgery also because my degree was only 300, if i had a thin cornea AND high degree, i'd probably be rejected for lasik). The surgery was about 15 minutes and painless throughout (only discomfort from the device used to keep eyes open) and everything was done quickly. The doctor would also count down the seconds you need to stare into the light and i felt very assured that everything was going well and good.

The first 6 hours after surgery was the hardest to go through. The pain was extremely hard to endure for me as i have very low tolerance for pain, my eyes felt like it's stinging non-stop and i kept tearing up. However, this is perfectly normal and good thing it only lasted for that 6 hours.

The day after surgery, i had zero pain, zero discomfort and my vision is good enough for me to head out for the checkup by myself. I could function normally. Once inawhile i would experience slight dryness in my eye, and i also cannot focus on something for too long otherwise my eyes would feel very tired. Other than that, i feel great. No haziness, no pain, no discomfort.

I truly recommend whoever's thinking of doing lasik to go ahead for your evalution in this clinic and seek the doctor's advise on what is the best option for you. It's the best decision i've made in my life.

My first visit to the clinic for my eye refractive surgery at LSC Paragon was breezy as I was comfortable with the staff who attended to me. I decided on ReLEx SMILE due to the significant healing period and chose to have the surgery performed that very day in the afternoon. Prior to that, I had an eye assessment in the morning. The surgery was fast yet not hasty. The surgeon explained what he was doing throughout the whole procedure so I was informed. I was able to see with 6/6 vision based on the checkup 2 weeks after surgery.

It was my father's first visit to Dr Leo for his teary eyes problem and it was nothing short of a pleasant experience. Dr Leo was able to communicate clearly with him in both Mandarin and Hokkien. Her friendly personality quickly put my father at ease and rarely do I see him so comfortable in any doctor's office. Despite a crowded clinic, she made sure that she spends enough time explaining to my father through the use of clear visuals and addressing his every question. There is no doubt my father will only see Dr Leo in future for his eye problems.

I advice you to book an appointment well in advance because her clinic is very very busy with both locals and expats. I was amazed at how Dr. Leo gave me a nice presentation on my overall eye health using the TV screen in her office. All those tests I did? Well, the results were immediately processed, and in addition to the photos of my eye, everything was on the screen, and she was able to point out what's good and anything I should be aware of. Abit pricey and the wait is long, but she is a very good doctor so it is expected.
