Care at NUH

Our Services


NUH Ophthalmology offers a comprehensive range of sub-specialties, diagnostic and therapeutic services for both adults and children. Our approach involves unique multi-disciplinary and multi-modality methodologies. We work closely with other specialties to provide comprehensive patient services and treatments. Here is an overview of our services:

Cataract, a common condition associated with aging,occurs when proteins in the eye's native lens change shape and clump together resulting in clouding of the lens. Our skilled ophthalmologists use advanced surgical techniques, including such phacoemulsification and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, and offer a selection of various intra-ocular lenses (IOLs) to address diverse vision needs.

We provide patient care and treatment for common eye conditions and diseases, such as Diabetic Retinopathy, Red Eye, Chalazion and Myopia.  

The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye. It plays a crucial role in focusing light and maintaining visual clarity. Our cornea specialists are experienced in treating various eye disorders, from common conditions such as keratitis and corneal abrasion to the more complex ones such as pterygium. We also have a contact lens clinic for patients who require customised contact lens and a service providing comprehensive treatment for dry eyes.

Glaucoma, commonly known as the "silent thief of sight", often shows no symptoms during its early stages. NUH ophthalmology is equipped with advanced ocular imaging equipment to diagnose and treat glaucoma as soon as possible to slow down and prevent progression to blindness. Clickhere to find out more about our glaucoma doctors. 

Neuro-ophthalmology specialises in the diagnosis and management of eye diseases related to the brain and nervous system. Our neuro-opthalmologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as optic nerve disorders and eye movement disorders. The team is also supported by our in-house electrophysiology (ERG) testing service. Click here to find out more about our neuro-ophthalmology doctors. 

Combining the micro-surgical precision of ophthalmology with the aesthetic concepts of facial plastic surgery, we provide a comprehensive range of aesthetics and medical services for the orbit, eyelids, and lacrimal (tearing) system in children and adults. Additionally, we have an in-house prosthetic ocularist to provide patients with customised prosthetic eye services. Click here to find out more about our oculoplastic doctors.

We also have a dedicated clinic for inherited retina diseases and provide electrophysiology (ERG) testing. Click here to find out more about our retina doctors. 


Uveitis refers to the inflammation of the uveal tract, the middle layer of the eye consisting of the iris, ciliary body and choroid. Our doctors are trained in diagnosing and treating this condition through vision assessments and other investigations tests such as blood tests.
