“Ground breaking research in ophthalmology has led to novel treatment options for eye conditions, which have reduced incidences of blindness in Singapore.   However, with an increasingly ageing population, common chronic eye diseases like cataract, refractive error, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, if not treated in time, will result in significant visual morbidity.

I am currently working on a new Primary Eye Care model to facilitate better availability, accessibility and affordability of quality comprehensive eye care at the community level which aims to right site patients with these chronic eye conditions.”
