Backed by the research, education, technology, and teamwork of our renowned team of eye specialists, our comprehensive patient care is designed to prevent, treat, and cure various eye disorders and diseases.
Cataracts sometimes start to develop in a person’s lens as he or she gets older. Every eye will develop cataract, although affected differently. Blurred, misty, or patchy vision would be the obvious indication. Cataracts aren’t painful but surgery will be needed to remove and replace the affected lens.
Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition with damaged retina (back of eye), caused by uncontrolled diabetes. Without routine check-ups, diabetic retinopathy in the early stages may not be detected as it doesn’t tend to have any obvious symptoms. However, early signs of the condition can be picked up during diabetic eye screening. Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the leading cause of blindness if left untreated.
Retinal detachment occurs when the thin lining at the back of your eye (retina) begins to pull away from the blood vessels that supply it with oxygen and nutrients. Most people will experience warning signs which include floaters (black dots, specks or streaks that float across your field of vision). Without prompt treatment, retinal detachment will lead to blindness in the affected eye and may affect your other eye as well.
Glaucoma is an eye condition where the optic nerve is damage and affects the transferring of visual information from the eye to the brain. The damage of the optic nerve may be due to increase pressure in the eye, also known as intraocular pressure (IOP) or reduced blood supply to the optic nerve.
Age Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is when you lose the visual ability to read, write, drive and see images or faces. Glasses won’t be able to correct the blurred central vision, and both eyes tend to eventually be affected by AMD, although problems usually occur in one eye in the beginning. AMD needs to be treated as soon as possible to prevent further vision loss.
Pterygium is a degenerative eye disorder characterised by a fleshy and benign growth of conjunctiva on the nasal corner of the eye. Occasional symptoms like redness, itching, and dryness can occur. In advanced stage, it affects the vision leading to visual disturbances like diplopia (double vision). Diagnosis is based on clinical features and physical examination of the eye.
Children’s Eye Disorder
Poor eyesight can cause learning and behavioural problems in children, who may have difficulties telling their eyesight problems. Squint, short-sightedness, amblyopia (lazy eye), astigmatism, and long-sightedness can be treated more effectively if they are diagnosed earlier, which is why regular eye tests are so important. We recommend that your child has his or her first eye test by the age of three.
Other Eye Problems
We provide eye care to many other general eye problems as well such as: Cornea Ulcer, Dry Eyes, Eyelid Abscess, Foreign Body Removal, Subconjunctival Haemorrhage, Trauma, Viral Conjunctivitis
