Cataract surgery

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...

First of all, you need to imagine our eyes working like a camera, all parts of the camera from the external aperture and shutter to the internal lenses and film have to all be well-functioned to give you a clear image. It is akin to our eyes from the cornea all the way to the lens a...

Cataract surgery is essentially lens replacement surgery. As such, by choosing the appropriate power of lens implant (based on calculations using parameters such as corneal curvature and eyeball length)...

In the context of private hospitals, the situation in Singapore is as follows: Medisave can be used for surgeries/procedures performed for medical reasons and classified under the Ministry of Health's Table of Surgical Procedures. As such, Medisave can be used ...

You probably already have quite a bit of experience with this condition if your 7 month old daughter had cataract surgery when she was 2 months old.

So if a person has a cataract, then they need cataract surgery and not LASIK. If a person does not have a cataract, but wants to r...

Floaters are caused by degeneration of the vitreous jelly in the eye. The condition is self-limiting most of the time, meaning that it can resolve spontaneously by itself with or without specific treatment. If the condition is severe or obstructing your vision, you can consider opting for las...

Hi Chenxin There will definitely be a difference in visual outcome between patients who have multifocal lens implants versus monofocal ones. This is to be expected because the different lenses focus light a bit differently. A monofocal lens will focus most light passing through it to a single foca...

The truth is that cataract surgery does bring about greater spectacle independence, however does not negate the need for glasses completely. It would be an unrealistic expectation to want to be completely spectacle free (that is likened to wishing for the eyes of a 20-year-old at ...
