SNEC reduces fees for 19 complex eye procedures
Since March this year, the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) has reduced the cost of treatment for 19 complex eye procedures by 15% to 32%. Some workflows have been streamlined since January, shortening the wait time for patients. Complex surgical operations such as glaucoma surgery, retinal detachment surgery, and Dacryocystorhinostomy have been made more affordable for the patients.
In an interview with Zaobao, Assoc Prof Ian Yeo, Deputy Medical Director (Education) and Senior Consultant with the Medical Retina Department, SNEC shared that the intravitreal injection procedure is usually done by an ophthalmologist, but SNEC has introduced a new model of care and trained six nurses to administer it since January this year. Two are still undergoing training.
