Pantai Hospital Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology is based on a Greek word which translates to ‘the science of eyes’.

There are many diseases that can affect the eyes. Some are minor and temporary while others may lead to persistent blindness.

Your best defence is to go for regular eye check-ups as eye diseases do not always present early. Early detection and treatment can help prevent eye conditions that can lead to vision loss.

Our experienced eye specialists can help you manage conditions related to your eyes.

Common conditions we treat include:

  • Glaucoma – This is caused by an increased pressure in the eye, damaging the optic nerve. If left untreated, it may rapidly cause blindness

  • Cataracts – This is the most common cause of blindness in adults and the principal cause of blindness in the world

  • Corneal diseases such as contact lens diseases and atopic conditions

  • Refractory surgery or LASIK

  • Retinal disorders such as retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy

  • Eyelid disorders – Conditions affecting your eyelid include ptosis, facial nerve palsy, tumours, Grave's disease and tearing problems

  • Paediatric eye diseases such as squints, childhood myopia and retinoblastomas
