​I enjoy working with people, and hope to create a positive impact on others’ lives and practising orthoptics enables me to interact with patients from all walks of life!

Once I gave an elderly patient a visual aid (Fresnel prism) to have symptomatic relief of double vision due to misalignment of his eyes. He loved the prism and was very grateful for what I have done for him, and told me how he looks forward to Chinese New Year. That was a moment I felt really appreciated. The ability to help patients cope with their vision and seeing their conditions improve certainly makes being an orthoptist a fulfilling profession.
