Health conditions and treatments


Dr Tow Lim will discuss with you the most appropriate treatment for your glaucoma and its stage of progression.

Macular Degeneration

Also known as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is an eye condition that primarily affects older adults and leads to the gradual deterioration of the macula.

Diabetic Eye

Diabetic eye refers to a condition where high blood sugar levels damage the blood vessels in the retina, potentially leading to vision problems or even blindness if left untreated.

Botulinum toxin injections

Injecting a neurotoxin to temporarily paralyze or weaken muscles, commonly used for neurological conditions and to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Laser treatment

Use Yag capsulotomy laser to treat side effects of cataract surgery known as posterior capsule opacification (PCO). Use Yag iridotomy laser treatment, to help prevent sudden (acute) rise in pressure within the eye.
