Question & Answers

Eyes are the most interesting of the parts of the human in my opinion and giving perfect vision without glasses by providing Lasik or Bladeless cataract surgery, in addition to saving blindness by prompt treatment with glaucoma surgery and laser are extremely satisfying and fulfilling

Anyone with family history of any eye conditions and above 40 should consult an Ophthalmologist every 2 yearly or more frequently if they have eye issues.

Ophthalmology, glaucoma , cataracts, lasik and refractive surgery, diagnosis and treatments are amongst the fasting improving and changing. Attending meetings regionally and internationally yearly allows me to keep abreast of new technologies of which I am already an early adopter, Such as using the latest Femtosecond Bladeless cataract surgery, Multifocal and extended depth of focus (EDOF) Lenses in my practice.

Patients are always at the centre of our specialist services. Our Glaucoma , cataract , refractive surgery are always personalised to the individual and their requirements.

Many blinding eye diseases like glaucoma do not have ANY symptoms of pain or blurred vision until too late.  So common misconception is that “because I can see well and have no pain” means I don’t have any eye problems. Some diseases creep up on patients as they age and they maybe unaware of it especially as we have two eyes to compensate.

Counselling both financial and multimodality patient education leaflets, videos and internet website links about Cataracts, Lasik , Glaucoma and Implantable Collamer lenses ( ICL ) are provided extensively to patients.

Work hard and play hard with plenty of healthy eating and exercise is a good motto to live by. Having a spiritual life always guides you in the right direction to be happy and content.

Femtosecond bladeless cataract and Lasik technology have changed the safety of modern procedures and were the major development we embraced in this generation. Personalisation of modern eye surgery and treatments through artificial intelligence, big data etc will be the next leap in safety and results for future patients.

As mentioned in 4, Eye health screening is an important part of prevention or detection of Cataract, Glaucoma , Macular degeneration , Diabetes, Presbyopia ‘Lau Hua’ and Dry Eyes for many patients and should be conducted every 1-2 years after the Age of 40
