Eye Services & Treatments

Cataract, characterised by a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, can severely impair vision, leading to significant daily challenges. While age is the primary culprit, factors like diabetes, high myopia, medications, trauma, and genetic predispositions can also contribute to this condition.

Though early-stage cataracts may not warrant immediate intervention, their progression can profoundly impact quality of life. Cataract surgery, involving the replacement of the cloudy lens with an implant, offers a viable solution.

Cataract surgeons conduct thorough assessments, tailoring lens implant options to each patient’s unique needs. From monofocal to extended depth of focus (EDOF) and multifocal implants, we offer a diverse array of choices. Patients will be counselled appropriately regarding what is the best intraocular lens for them according to their lifestyles .

Employing cutting-edge technology, including laser-assisted techniques, our goal is to not only restore vision but also enhance overall well-being. Take the first step towards clearer vision and improved eye health.

Medical retinal conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusions can profoundly impact patients’ quality of life, regardless of age.

For diabetic patients, regular retinopathy screening is imperative for holistic care, with annual screenings strongly advised.

SSEC offers a complete spectrum of diagnostic, laser, and medical treatments designed to mitigate vision damage caused by these sight-threatening conditions.

Vitreoretinal diseases that require surgical management include floaters, retinal detachment, macular hole, epiretinal membrane and advanced diabetic eye disease.

For patients grappling with significant floaters severely impacting daily activities like work or driving, surgical removal is increasingly the preferred treatment option.

Vitreoretinal surgery requires specialised equipment and if performed well and in a timely manner, can be sight saving for patients experiencing serious vitreoretinal disorders like retinal detachment and advanced diabetic eye disease.

Glaucoma surgery is a procedure that is performed to treat glaucoma, a condition that causes damage to the optic nerve and can lead to vision loss. The surgery aims to reduce the pressure inside the eye and prevent further damage to the optic nerve. There are different types of glaucoma surgery, including trabeculectomy, tube shunt surgery, and laser surgery.

Glaucoma surgery is usually recommended when other treatments, such as medications or laser therapy, fail to adequately control the intraocular pressure. The specific procedure chosen depends on the severity of the glaucoma and the patient’s overall health.

Some common procedures include:

Trabeculectomy

  • A small piece of tissue is removed to create a new drainage channel, allowing fluid to drain out of the eye.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)

  • These procedures use tiny devices or implants to improve the eye’s natural drainage system, often with fewer complications and a quicker recovery time compared to traditional surgeries.

Glaucoma drainage implants (aqueous shunts or tubes)

  • These are small tubes inserted into the eye to help drain fluid and reduce pressure.

Laser trabeculoplasty

  • Laser energy is used to improve the drainage of fluid from the eye by opening or widening the drainage channels.

Glaucoma presents a serious threat to our vision. The risk escalates with age, especially for those with a family history of glaucoma.

Ensure your eyes receive the attention they deserve by undergoing glaucoma screening administered by expert ophthalmologists. Don’t take chances with your vision—visit an eye specialist if you’re experiencing any symptoms.

Dreaming of a life liberated from glasses and contact lenses?

SSEC provides cutting-edge laser refractive surgery and implantable collamer lens (ICL) surgery solutions tailored to your needs.

Our Laser Refractive surgery includes:

  • LASIK
  • Trans-PRK

Laser refractive surgery will help reshape your cornea to correct refractive errors for crystal-clear vision. Alternatively, ICL surgery offers a fitting alternative for individuals ineligible for laser refractive surgery.

Don’t let dry eyes cloud your comfort and clarity. Dry eye syndrome, affecting one in ten individuals, occurs when your tears fail to adequately lubricate your eyes, leading to discomfort and potential complications.

Symptoms vary but may encompass stinging, burning, light sensitivity, blurred vision, and more. Contributing factors range from prolonged screen exposure, contact lenses to medication use.

Here at SSEC, we offer advanced treatments:

  • IDRA Dry Eye Analyzer
  • BlephEx™
  • Intense Regulated Pulse Light (E-Eye IRPL®)
  • Eye Lubricants
  • Supplements

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, visit an eye specialist for a detailed diagnosis.

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error where distant objects appear blurry while close objects remain clear. Over the past few decades, there has been a significant increase in the prevalence of myopia worldwide, particularly among younger populations. 

Myopia control encompasses a range of techniques and interventions designed to manage and potentially reduce the progression of myopia in children and adolescents. These strategies target various factors believed to contribute to myopia progression, including genetic predisposition, environmental influences, and visual behaviours.

Some common methods of myopia control include:

  • Myopine / Atropine Eye Drops
  • Myopia Control Spectacle Lenses
  • Ortho-K Contact Lenses
  • To do more outdoor activities

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of myopia control strategies can vary from individual to individual, and not all methods may be suitable for everyone. Therefore, it’s essential to consult with an eye care professional who can assess your specific needs and recommend the most appropriate course of action.

Strabismus, commonly known as squint, presents as a misalignment of the eyes, manifesting as inward (esotropia) or outward (exotropia) deviation, or even higher (hypertropia) or lower (hypotropia) displacement. 

It is not an uncommon condition affecting both children and adults, with potential associations to various medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid eye disease, brain tumours, and accidents.

Squints in infants and toddlers should not be taken lightly as it can be a potentially serious condition which warrants early intervention.

At SSEC, we provide comprehensive in-house assessments and corrective surgeries to realign deviated eyes, enhancing aesthetics and relieving symptoms like double vision. Eye exercises are also being conducted to prevent amblyopia (lazy eye).

Oculoplastic Surgery, also known as eye plastic surgery, encompasses a broad spectrum of procedures that are carried out in and around the eye, including the eyelids, under the eye, orbit (bones of the eye socket), tear ducts, forehead, and midface area. Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons or oculofacial surgeons are best qualified to perform this delicate surgery to restore the healthy function and enhance the appearance of the eyes.

Our comprehensive services cater to both adults and children, offering surgical, non-surgical, and aesthetic solutions tailored to diverse needs.

Functional or Reconstructive Surgery

  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty, ptosis correction, epicanthoplasty, entropion, ectropion, and epiblepharon surgeries.)
  • Removal of eyelid lumps and growths
  • Tear duct procedures (to manage tearing from blocked tear drainage systems and infections)
  • Treatment for conditions like thyroid eye disease, injury, and trauma
  • Eye removal surgeries (evisceration, enucleation with orbital implants)

Cosmetic or Ocular Rejuvenation Surgery

  • Double eyelid surgery
  • Eyebrow lifts for droopy eyebrow
  • Lower eyebags surgery

Non-surgical Treatments

  • Injectable treatment options targeting signs of ageing, muscle spasms, eye blinking, tear troughs, and enhancing facial volume.

Whether addressing medical concerns or enhancing appearance, our team is dedicated to delivering excellence in oculoplastic care, ensuring each patient receives personalised attention and tailored treatment plans for their unique needs.

Glaucoma presents a serious threat to our vision, causing irreversible damage to the optic nerve and potentially leading to permanent blindness. Symptoms are often gradual and unnoticeable, making early detection paramount.

With no cure in sight, timely identification is crucial to halt further optic nerve deterioration and preserve our eyesight. The risk escalates with age, especially for those with a family history of glaucoma.

Ensure your eyes receive the attention they deserve by undergoing glaucoma screening administered by expert ophthalmologists. Don’t take chances with your vision—visit an eye specialist if you’re experiencing any symptoms.
