Our team of ophthalmologists are professionally trained to provide consultations and treatments for the following eye diseases:
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of one's eye. People having cataracts would have difficulty in reading, driving or seeing the expression on a person’s face. Symptoms include blurred vision, eye fatigue, sensitivity to light, frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription and need for brighter light for reading and other activities etc.
The only effective treatment for cataracts is surgery. Please consult an ophthalmologist to determine the most suitable treatment/ management plan for you.
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve which is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in the eye. Many forms of glaucoma have no warning signs. The effect can be so gradual that one may not notice a change in vision until the condition deteriorates to an advanced stage. Glaucoma can result in vision loss or blindness if not treated promptly.
Treatment options for glaucoma include prescription eyedrops, oral medications, laser treatment, surgery or a combination of the above.
Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication that affects eyes, it can cause blindness, yet in most cases blindness is largely avoidable. This can be done with effective diabetes management, regular eye screening and timely treatment. Once diabetic retinopathy starts, tight control of blood sugars can slow down its progression to vision loss.
Maculopathy (macular degeneration)
Maculopathy, or macular degeneration, is a disease of the macula region located within the retina. Senile maculopathy, or macular degeneration related to the patient’s age, is the most common maculopathy. There are two kinds: dry maculopathy and wet maculopathy.
Wet maculopathy is characterised by the growth of new blood vessels, which may cause leakage of fluid and bleeding into the macular. Treatment options include photodynamic therapy or injection of medications into the affected eye to inhibit the growth of abnormal blood vessels.

Inward/outward turning of the eyelid margin, eyelid drooping and trichiasis etc. are common eyelid disorders among the elderly. Such disorders may cause discomfort, irritation or even ocular pain. Early recognition and diagnosis of these problems are crucial to their proper management.
