imgCST2Cataract Screening

Cataract (clouding of the lens) is the commonest cause of blindness in the world.

Cataract surgery is usually recommended if the cataract is impairing vision and affecting one’s daily activities.

Cataracts may also need to be removed if it is very dense and is likely to cause complications such as glaucoma.

Cataract surgery is now very advanced and can be performed safely and effectively. It is performed as a day surgery procedure and usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

The recovery is relatively fast and patients can resume most of their regular activities within a few weeks of the surgery. The preferred method of removing a cataract is by phacoemulsification.

Dr. Leonard Ang has a wealth of experience in managing normal as well as complex cataracts. He uses the latest machines, technologies and instruments to perform cataract surgery.

We also offer patients the best artificial lenses to suit each patient’s individual needs. This includes aspheric monofocal lens to improve the sharpness and quality of vision compared to the standard lens, toric lens which can correct astigmatism and multifocal lens to correct both distant vision as well as presbyopia.

Cataract surgery can now be completely bladeless, with the use of a laser machine to help perform the various incisions in the initial part of surgery. This could help to improve the precision and predictability of the surgery.
