Fiza Tuahhaini from WELLNEX invited Doctor Errol Chan from Mount Elizabeth Hospitals, Singapore to discuss about Cataract and how to achieve Spectacle-Freedom and Better Vision!
It was done last Thursday 28 of April from 12h30 to 13h15 on video conference!
He pointed out that it is the commonest age-related eye condition amongst middle-aged persons and seniors in Singapore.
Dr Errol Chan discussed the symptoms of cataract, and how recent technological advances of modern cataract surgery allows it to be a safe and effective treatment for cataracts.
In the last 5 years, the development of advanced lens implant technology mean that all forms of refractive error (i.e., short-sight, far-sight, "lao hua", and astigmatism) can be corrected for, allowing patients to reduce their requirement on distance and/or reading glasses in order to see well. Current lens implants also allow for sharper vision.
Cataract surgery can be customized to suit each individual's occupational and lifestyle needs, enabling patients to improve their vision and quality of life according to their choices. In addition, sophisticated pre-surgical assessment devices, and computer-assisted surgical planning, allow for much better customization and precision in surgery. With these advances, patients do not necessarily need to wait until their cataracts are very severe and vision much reduced before having cataract surgery and enjoying good vision after.
