Cataract surgery

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. There are many permutations and combinations, but the scenario in your particular case is that of cataract in one eye in a child. In this scenario, i...

To start off, I think the best thing for you specifically is to listen to your doctor's advice and get a pair of reading glasses. As I mentioned in my previous answer to your question, there is no cure for presbyopia or Lau Hua-which is the reason why you need reading glasses. Just for the sake o...

Cataract surgery and LASIK are never performed at the same time on a particular eye. Each has it's own indications, ie reasons for a patient undergoing the procedure. 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...

It would be best to know what exactly are the side effects you are experiencing following cataract surgery. The comparison between multifocal lens and monofocal lens is down to whether the patient wishes to be spectacles independent after cataract surgery. If so, then the multi...

Dear Chenxin, 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 cons...

Thanks for the D2D. Floaters are very common symptoms in many people’s eyes. The most common cause of floaters is degeneration of the vitreous gel and posterior vitreous detachment. As patients with cataracts have poorer vision, it is common that they are unable to detect...

D2D. Yes. Over the years, many different surgical techniques have been employed to correct astigmatism during cataract surgery. Current intraocular lens technology corrects low to high astigmatism with much precision using Toric (astigmatic) intraocular lenses. In order to plac...

D2D. If your poor night vision is due to a dense or mature cataract, your night vision will certainly be improved after cataract surgery. However, if you have already been experiencing poor night vision even before the development of cataracts, then your poor night vision may ...

Hi Chee Meng, D2D. Using advanced biometric technologies and the latest equipment at our centre, my objective is for every patient to be independent of spectacles after they undergo cataract surgery. At my clinic, our team goes through a very stringent and meticulous process ...
28 Sep 2018
Hi Xie Jing, D2D. First and foremost, there must always be an indication for cataract surgery. Cataract surgery should be performed when the patient’s vision is being affected by cataract, and/or when the cataract is dense and affecting the patient’s daily living...
