8 Mar 10 The New Paper – Blind from cataracts

Madame Hoe Ah See, 77, had cataracts in both eyes. Thinking her failing vision was due to old age, she did not seek medical help. It was only when she was almost blind that her family convinced Madam Hoe to undergo cataract surgery. A/Prof Leonard Ang performed a minimally invasive cataract operation which helped to cure her blindness.
