Madam Tan was diagnose with cataract for many years and was advised by other doctors to wait for her cataracts to “ripen”. Since then, her vision continue to deteriorate further and so did her quality of life. She almost went blind when seeing you. She underwent minimally invasive cataract surgery (Phacoemulsification of cataract) and lens implant surgery in both eyes and she could walk and perform normal activities on her own after so many years.
