Our grandparents had it, some of our parents had it...cataract surgery is the most common eye procedure amongst the older generation. Almost everyone will develop a cataract with age - it’s just a matter of time!

Despite it's prevalence, I've come to realise that many of my patients still have a poor understanding of cataracts.

SECRETS TO MYOPIA - AN EYE SURGEON'S GUIDE TO REDUCING SINGAPORE'S PROBLEM OF SHORTSIGHTEDNESS

Singapore has one of the world’s highest rates of myopia (or shortsightedness). We spend $311.5 million on prescription glasses each year.

More than HALF of us wear glasses by the time we are 12, compared to less than 20% for rest of the world.

Now here's the deal - the earlier in life you start becoming shortsighted, the higher your final spectacle degree tends to be. High myopia can give rise to other problems, such as an increased risk of retinal detachments, and an earlier onset of cataracts.

You’ve thought long and hard about getting LASIK done in Singapore, but don’t know where to start. You're also too lazy to sift through all the information on the internet, or to go for one of those LASIK education seminars.

I don't blame you at all - the range of choices in terms of LASIK procedures, pricing and technologies offered by various eye centres here in Singapore can be bewildering.

Singapore has one of the highest rates of myopia in the world, which probably explains why you're interested in this article. The good news for you? LASIK surgery is much cheaper today than it was 10 years ago. However, as evidenced by the number of people searching for "LASIK Singapore price" and "LASIK cost Singapore", it's clear that most people are still utterly confused by the pricing schemes for LASIK.

By 2050, 5 million Singaporeans will be myopic. 15% of this group will have high myopia, which is defined as having a prescription above 500 degrees. It's associated with serious eye conditions, such as retinal detachment, cataracts and glaucoma.

Children who develop myopia by preschool or primary school are at an increased risk of high myopia in adulthood. The key to reducing high myopia is to delay early onset myopia in children.

5 EASY WAYS TO ELIMINATE DRY EYES, AS TOLD BY AN EYE SPECIALIST (EYEDROPS ISN’T ON THE LIST)

Dr Claudine Pang

Almost everyone will experience dry eyes at some point in their lives. Be it after LASiK surgery, after staring at your computer for too long, or after prolonged exposure to winds in cold weathered countries.

We’ve all had that stinging, biting, gritty sensation in our eyes that rather ironically, brings about sudden, excessive and annoying tearing. Our eyes start to well up, and soon enough, our vision blurs.

Eyedrops! We know that’ll do the trick! Unfortunately, for many of us, eyedrops are just a temporary solution and more often than not, putting in the drops consistently can be a mean feat.
