How long will my appointment take?
Depending on your eye condition, you may be required to to undergo various specialised imaging tests. Each specialised test may take up to 30
minutes (excluding waiting time). We seek your patience and understanding as
these tests will provide vital information for an accurate diagnosis, allowing
our doctors to better advise on the necessary treatment.
Why do patients who came after me get to see the doctor before me?
It depends on how fast your eyes take to dilate. For a thorough eye examination with a slit lamp microscope, dilating eye drops will be administered before your consultation and after all your specialised tests have been completed. It takes about 30 minutes for your eyes to be fully dilated before you can proceed to see the doctor. For some patients (elderly/diabetic), it may take up to 60 minutes for your eyes to be dilated.
At times, our doctors may have to attend to a patient with more severe conditions.
*Dilating eye drops may cause blurred vision for about four to six hours. For your safety, please do not drive after dilation.
Where can I find more information about my condition and the tests I have to do during my visit?
Why am I assigned a different doctor for every visit?
As subsidised patients receive team-based care led by an assigned specialist on duty, they may not see the same doctor for every visit. Rest assured that patients' medical records and treatment plans are accessible by all our doctors to ensure a seamless patient experience.
If you would like to be seen by a specific doctor, you may opt to become a private patient and prevailing rates will be charged accordingly.
Where do I go to make payment?
My condition worsened before my next scheduled appointment. What should I do?
What can I expect after a cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery is day surgery procedure and you will be discharged to go home after your surgery. From registration to your discharge, it may take between one to four hours. Do follow the care guide in the patient information leaflet which will be given to you after the surgery.
After a standard cataract surgery with no complications, there will be two to three follow-up outpatient clinic consultations required. The appointments* are typically scheduled as such:
- One day after your surgery
- Five to seven days after your surgery
- Four to six weeks after your surgery
*This may vary depending on the doctor's review, clinical findings and surgical complexity
