Services and Procedures

What is ophthalmology and what are ophthalmological conditions?

The medical specialty of ophthalmology is the study of the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eyeball. Our team of specialist ophthalmologists in Singapore specialises in medical and surgical eye problems, as well as providing screening for and diagnosis of a variety of eye diseases and conditions.

Ophthalmologists are responsible for all eye-related issues including the preservation of vision and the correction of vision defects and imperfections by lens prescription and laser therapy. They also perform surgical procedures such as cataract extraction, retinal detachment repair, lens replacement, cornea reshaping, corneal transplants, and treatment of glaucoma.

When do you need to see an ophthalmologist?

Eye care and timely eye examinations are important for infants, children, and adults.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may wish to consider making an appointment with an ophthalmologist:

  • Loss of vision or decreased vision in one or both eyes
  • Changes in vision such as light flashes or streaks, spots, wavy or watery vision, blurry faces, distorted images, haloes around lights, or double vision
  • Seeing unusual shadows, a curtain-like loss of vision, black spots or blurred areas in central or peripheral vision
  • Crossed eyes, eyes that turn in, out, up or down,
  • Pain, signs of inflammation or infection such as swelling, redness, or pus
  • Changes in colour vision

As medically trained doctors, ophthalmologists have undergone extensive training to diagnosis and treat diseases or injuries in and around the eye. As well as surgical procedures, they also perform biopsies and injections and prescribe glasses.

To ensure correct diagnosis of your eye condition, be sure to bring all pertinent medical history (including recent lab results or scans). Your ophthalmologist will assess and evaluate your symptoms before advising you on the best course of treatment to attain the best possible results.

Did you know?

Colour blindness affects males (1 in 12 men) more often than females (1 in 200 women). The majority of cases of colour blindness are hereditary but it may also be due to a disease such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis or even the ageing process.

The most common kind of colour blindness is red/green colour blindness, but there also exists blue/yellow colour blindness and more rarely, total colour blindness.
