Cataract Surgery

Cataract is a common eye condition. This is due to the internal lens of the eye getting cloudy with age. Eventually the cataract may progress to a stage where it causes blurred vision, and surgery may be required to restore sight.

Our doctors perform Phacoemulsification sutureless cataract surgery under a local anaesthetic. A pre-operative scan (IOL Master) is used to aid in the choice of the most appropriate intraocular lens implant in each patient. This is important in reducing the post-operative dependence on distance glasses.

Corneal Transplant Surgery

Also known as Corneal Graft.

Some eye conditions such as keratoconus and corneal oedema may eventually require surgery to restore sight.

Dr Ong has expertise in many forms of corneal transplantation including full thickness corneal transplant, and partial thickness corneal transplants (DALK, DSAEK and DMEK).

Pterygium Surgery

Pterygium is a common eye problem in Australia, where there is a lot of sunlight exposure to the surface of the eye. If the pteryguim causes visual distortion or eye discomfort, surgery may be helpful.

This is a microsurgical procedure performed with and conjunctival autograft to improve surgical results.

Cornea Collagen Crosslinking

Keratoconus is a condition that causes thinning of the cornea, generally starting in teenage years and young adulthood. It results in worsening vision. It can be stopped from worsening with a procedure known as Collagen Crosslinking.

Eyelid surgery

The following conditions are often treated surgically, and Dr JJ Khong has a lot of expertise in this.

Dermatochalasis is an eyelid condition where excessive skin on the eyelids causes eyelid drooping, which may obscure vision..

Ptosis of the eyelid is generally caused by stretching of the upper lid muscle and less commonly ptosis can be caused with neurological or muscular disorders.  Patients affected by ptosis have droopy eyelids and experience difficulty keeping the eyes open. 

Ectropion is an eyelid malposition where the eyelid turns out. Affected patients often notice red eye and eye watering..

Entropion is an eyelid malposition condition where the eyelid turns inwards and cause discomfort from eyelashes rubbing on the eye. Surgery is often required urgently to reposition the eyelid.

Peri-ocular skin cancer often presents as painless eyelid lump. There are four types of skin cancers that can affect the eyelids: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and less commonly melanoma and sebaceous cell carcinoma. Individualized assessment and tailored surgical excision and reconstruction of the lid  will ensure the best outcome

Tear duct surgery

Blocked tear ducts cause watery eyes. Some patients may also develop tear duct infection that appears as a painful lump at the corner of the eye. This condition is treatable by tear duct bypass surgery via a skin incision or an internal nasal approach.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is also a common eye problem that can result in loss of vision.

Our doctors offer glaucoma screening, and treatment if required. There are lasers (SLT and YAG) available on site to help in the treatment of some patients.
