Gaby Rienna Buijs, 16 September 2020

Had eye surgery done yesterday at Mount E Orchard. After operation rested in day surgery ward. Very kind and helpful nurses. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from one of the nurses the next day asking me whether I had indeed seen the eye specialist that morning and whether I was alright and recovering and to call them if there were any problems. Thank you Mount Elizabeth for having such caring nurses.

Dr Val Phua and team were very efficient and communicative throughout the entire process. Had a great experience and felt very comfortable. Minimal discomfort after the operation apart from some dryness in the eyes. By the day after the review I was pretty much fully functional with only slight haziness.

He has taken care of my daughter since she was diagnose with lazy eye ever for 10 years now with much improvement. The staff is very professional with their work and their ability to take care of little kids is amazing esp when it involves 2 to 3 hours of eye test.

Dr Alicia Eye Specialist

From 1 verified reviews

Fiona Fussi, 01 April 2020

Had a horrible and infuriating encounter with Dr Alicia during my chalazion eye infection last year that wouldn’t go away. My eyes are extremely sensitive, so even flipping the eyelid to touch and squeeze the oil glands in the eyelid made me feel very nauseous and sick. When I was dizzy and visibly uncomfortable, Dr Alicia said, “don’t be so drama” to me. I was shocked and insulted. How can a doctor who I’m trusting with my health, say that to a her patient who is obviously suffering and literally paying for this appointment. Very rude and unprofessional.Even during my eye surgery to drain the pus from my eye infection, she was unempathetic to the anxiety and stress I was going through and did nothing to help me feel better.The only good thing about Doctor Alicia Eye Specialist clinic is the staff and assistants at the front desk. They were kind and patient and had way more empathy than Doctor Alicia during the whole ordeal. But still never returning there again.

What you need to know about Cataract Surgery in Singapore

Types of Cataracts

Cataract surgery is a surgical procedure to remove the natural lens of your eye and replace it with an artificial lens. The procedure is usually performed on people with a cataract that cause dim or blurred vision, double vision, a halo around bright lights, and poor night vision. The goal of the surgery is to help you see better.

What does a Cataract Surgery Procedure Involve?

You will be awake during the procedure, but you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and you may receive a sedative to help you relax. Your surgeon will make a tiny incision in the front of your eye, remove the clouded lens, and implanted a clear artificial lens made of plastic, silicone, or acrylic, and close the incision. In some cases, your surgeon may only remove the cataract without implanting a new artificial lens. 

How Long Should I Stay in Singapore for a Cataract Surgery Procedure?

Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, meaning you can leave the hospital on the same day as the surgery. You should aim to stay in Singapore for at least 3 to 7 days to allow your eye to heal and to go to follow-up hospital checkups as your surgeon will need to monitor your healing progress.

MyMediTravel currently lists 20 facilities in Singapore offering Cataract Surgery procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Cataract Surgery can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What's the Recovery Time for Cataract Surgery Procedures in Singapore?

The complete recovery period until you are fully healed is about eight weeks. During this period, avoid any strenuous activity and heavy lifting, bending, or exercising activities that might stress your eye and any activities that would expose your eye to dust or grime. However, you may be able to go back to work and return to some of your normal activities within 1-2 weeks. 

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Cataract Surgery Procedures in Singapore?

Your surgeon may prescribe eye drops as well as other medicine to control eye pressure, prevent infection, and reduce inflammation, make sure to take it as prescribed. You may also need to wear an eye patch or protective shield when you sleep to prevent you from pushing or rubbing on your eye. Most people need glasses after cataract surgery, but you can only get a prescription for eyeglasses after your eyes have healed enough (within one to three months after surgery). 

What's the Success Rate of Cataract Surgery Procedures in Singapore?

Cataract surgery is a common and safe procedure, with about 90% of people that can see better after the surgery. However, it is very important to have realistic expectations. The side effects and risks of cataract surgery are swelling, eye infection, bleeding, drooping eyelid, retinal detachment, dislocation of the artificial lens, secondary cataract, loss of vision, inflammation, and glaucoma.

Are there Alternatives to Cataract Surgery Procedures in Singapore?

In the early stages when your vision is still quite good, or when your cataract does not interfere with your ability to perform your daily activities, your doctor may recommend you to have periodic reviews to monitor your cataracts without any treatment. Your doctor may also advise you to change your glasses or contact lens to improve your vision.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

Before cataract surgery, you may find it difficult to carry out your normal activities, such as driving at night, enjoying the outdoors, reading, or work on a computer. After the surgery, your vision will be a lot better and you can enjoy many activities that you couldn’t perform because of your cataract.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
