The Eye Centre is equipped with up-to-date technology to provide high quality specialist and subspecialist eye services.

Our eye specialists are trained to examine the eyes in detail and to make accurate diagnosis. They provide advice on the optimal treatment for the specific condition with medication, surgery or both. Detailed examination of the eyes sometimes can also reveal underlying systemic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure etc. In addition to general ophthalmological care for cornea and glaucoma, the Eye Centre also provides subspecialist care in the following areas:

  • Cataract, including the use of premiere intraocular lenses
  • Surgical and Medical Retinal problems
  • Glaucoma
  • Paediatric Eye problems
  • Refraction and Low Vision Aid

Ophthalmologist & Vitreoretinal Surgeon

Retina Specialists are ophthalmologists that specialize in the treatment of diseases pertaining to the posterior segment of the eye (ie vitreous, retina, choroid). These diseases are subdivided into Medical and Surgical Retina Pathologies depending on their primary treatment modality. Although most ophthalmologists can treat Medical Retina conditions such as Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Vein Occlusion and Age Related Macular Degeneration with laser and intravitreal injection therapy, Medical Retina Specialists have extensive in-depth knowledge and experience to manage the complicated ones.

Vitreoretinal (VR) Surgeons specialise in treating posterior segment surgical conditions such as :

  • Retinal Detachment
  • Non-Clearing Haemorrhage in the vitreous gel due to various causes (ie. Advance Diabetic Retinopathy or Retinal Vein Occlusion)
  • Macula Hole
  • Epiretinal Membrane and Vitreomacular Traction
  • Endophthalmitis and Vitritis
  • Penetrating Eye Trauma with Embedded Foreign Body
  • Dislocated Cataract or Intraocular Lens, etc.

Such surgeons normally require 2-3 years of additional training in this field after completing their ophthalmology residency. It is one of the most advanced field in medicine requiring specialized machinery to perform complex microsurgery such as :

  • The Removal of the Vitreous gel (Vitrectomy)
  • Endolaser Retinopexy or Cryopexy
  • Scleral buckling procedures
  • Intravitreal Insertion of Gas or Silicone Oil Tamponade
  • Epiretinal Membrane and Internal Limiting Membrane Peel
  • Desegmentation and Delamination of Proliferative Neovascular Membranes
  • Subretinal Drainage of Fluid and Blood Clot etc.

Most VR surgeons are also accomplished cataract surgeons where a major part of their work involves managing difficult cataracts such as the subluxated ones with poor zonular support (eg. Patient with Marfan Syndrome) or those that have dislocated into the Vitreous Cavity (eg. Ocular Trauma).

Sometimes, VR surgeons are also called upon by their colleagues in different subspecialty to co-manage cases such as Retinopathy of Prematurity (by the Paediatric Ophthalmologists) and Aqueous Misdirection (Glaucoma Specialists). In fact, it is becoming a common practice for Glaucoma patients needing the insertion of Glaucoma Drainage device to undergo Vitrectomy prior to the insertion of these tubes through the pars plana to avoid cornea injury.
