We strive to provide high quality, compassionate, world-class eye care to the local and regional community. We provide a wide range of tertiary specialty ophthalmology services at each of our locations and the services we provide are set out below:
Cataract refers to the clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye and is treated by removing the cataract and implanting an intraocular lens (“IOL”), a tiny, lightweight, clear plastic disk placed in the eye. The IOL replaces the focusing power of the eye’s natural lens.
Our specialist doctors generally perform cataract surgery using the phacoemulsification method, which does not require injections or suturing. A special devise utilising high frequency ultrasound energy is used to soften and breakdown the cataract so that it can be removed by suction. Using our state-of-the-art technology, a cataract surgery may be successfully completed within 15 minutes.
Our specialist doctors also perform complicated cataract surgeries treating conditions such as dislocated cataract, traumatic cataract and paediatric cataract.
We offer state-of-the-art bladeless cataract surgery using femtosecond laser technology. Our specialist doctors also implant a wide array of lenses including multifocal and astigmatic corrective lenses.
LASIK is the most popular form of laser eye surgery. LASIK eye surgery reshapes the cornea of the eye and thereby corrects and enhances eyesight. All our centres offer our patients LASIK surgery and consultation. We offer all forms of refractive surgery, which include the bladeless femtosecond-laser LASIK surgery, Refractive Lenticule Extraction ReLex™ and ReLEx® SMILE™, Microkeratome LASIK surgery, Epi-LASIK, LASEK, PRK, Phakic Intraocular Lens Implant such as Implantable Contact Lens (ICL), as well as SupraCor Presbyopic Laser Surgery.
Our specialist doctors are well-versed in performing retinal detachment surgery (involving the reattachment of retinal tear), macular hole surgery, epiretinal membrane surgery (removal of the layer of semitransparent scaring which grows on the inner surface of the retina, and causes distortion in vision and vision loss) and diabetic eye disease management. With uncontrolled diabetes, the eye is an important organ which will be affected by retinopathy, which may eventually lead to permanent damage to the eye and vision. Our specialist doctors are skilled in the laser treatment for retinopathy, which prevents deterioration in retinopathy and reduces the risk of blindness by more than 95%.
We have a full corneal diagnostic and clinic facility. Our specialist doctors are skilled in pterygium surgery (surgery to removal of fleshy tissue that grows over the cornea, which occurs more commonly in people who spend long periods of time outdoors in sunny climates), corneal transplant surgery, anterior segment reconstruction (involving techniques used to repair a defective or damaged pupil) as well as cornea collagen cross-linking (an advanced treatment for keratoconus, the degenerative disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea causes it to thin and change from a normal spherical shape, resulting in a distortion of vision).
We also treat ocular surface problems and perform limbal stem-cell transplantation.
We offer a wide range of visual screening for children. Our specialist doctors are skilled at paediatric cataract surgery, retinopathy of prematurity management as well as childhood tumour management. Strabismus refers to misaligned eyes which often develop because the eye muscles are uncoordinated and do not move the eyes together. This condition usually begins in infancy or childhood and children, unlike adults, often compensate for strabismus by squinting or covering one eye. Strabismus is often treated by surgically adjusting the tension on the eye muscles.
We also offer atropine 0.01% and 0.5% eye drop treatments to control childhood myopia.
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which causes blind spots and vision loss. At our centres, we offer the Humphrey Visual Field Test, which draws a map of a patient’s field of vision. We also offer Optical Coherent Tomography testing, which is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of the anterior segment, optic nerve head and the retina. Using these tests, we are able to help our patients with early detection, diagnosis and treatment for glaucoma, retinal diseases and other conditions.
We employ specialised lasers, such as Laser Iridotomy, Laser Iridoplasty, Laser Suturelysis, Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty, Nd:YAG Laser (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet), Transcleral Cyclophotocoagulation and Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, to treat glaucoma. Our specialist doctors also perform routine glaucoma surgery (trabeculectomy) and complex glaucoma surgery involving glaucoma drainage devices.
Our technology and testing facilities assist our specialist doctors in establishing accurate diagnoses of medical retinal diseases. At our centres, we offer patients angiogram testing, which uses fluorescein and ICG dyes and a camera to take pictures and evaluate the blood flow through the vessels in the back of the eye.
We offer intravitreal injection treatments such as anti-VEGF and steroid injections.
Our oculoplastic services offered, amongst others, include lid and orbit abnormality correction surgery, removal of tumours, reconstruction, eyelid procedures such as ‘double eyelid’ surgery, Botox, filler injections for facial rejuvenation and implants. Our specialist doctors provide medical and surgical solutions to thyroid eye diseases and aesthetic surgeries. We also perform complex orbital surgeries such as orbital reconstruction and decompression procedures.
Uveitis refers to the inflammation of the uvea of the eye. At our centres, we provide comprehensive ocular inflammation diseases diagnosis and therapeutic services.
At our centres, in addition to our specialist doctors, we also engage in-house and visiting optometrists and orthoptists to provide comprehensive services to our patients.
