Our Signature Service

Zeiss Smile

Also known as Refractive Lenticule Extraction – Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, is a type of laser vision correction offered by eye specialist clinics in Singapore. It is a minimally invasive procedure in which the corneal structure is left largely intact. As it involves the use of only one laser, the entire procedure can be done within the clinic premises and it can be completed in less than 10 minutes, for both eyes. Compared to LASIK, there will be less post-operative discomfort as it does not create a flap and is done through a small incision.

Comprehensive Treatments at Our Eye Clinic

General Eye Screening

Our comprehensive General Eye Screening involves thorough examinations to detect various eye conditions early. Regular screenings help safeguard your vision by identifying issues such as refractive errors, glaucoma, and cataracts, ensuring timely intervention and preserving your eye health.

Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is a procedure that replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial one, correcting refractive errors like presbyopia and myopia. RLE enhances vision, reduces dependency on glasses, and ensures clarity at all distances, offering a life-changing solution for those seeking clear, sharp vision.

Dry Eye and Blepharitis Management

Our experts specialise in managing dry eye conditions and Blepharitis, an eyelid inflammation. With personalised treatments, we alleviate discomfort, reduce inflammation, and restore ocular health. Our comprehensive approach ensures effective management, providing relief and improving overall eye comfort.

Laser Vision Correction

Laser Vision Correction, including procedures like LASIK and ReLex SMILE, reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This safe, outpatient surgery enhances visual acuity, reduces or eliminates the need for glasses or contacts, and offers a quick recovery, enabling you to enjoy life without visual limitations.

Glaucoma Screening and Management

Early detection and precise management of glaucoma are crucial in preventing vision loss. Our Glaucoma Screening and Management services utilise advanced diagnostic tools to detect glaucoma in its earliest stages. Our specialists create personalised management plans, including medications and surgical interventions, to effectively control intraocular pressure and preserve your vision.

Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) Surgery

Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery is a specialised procedure addressing blocked tear ducts. Our surgeons create a new channel, bypassing the obstruction, allowing tears to drain normally. DCR surgery resolves excessive tearing, recurrent infections, and discomfort, promoting eye health and ensuring clear vision without the hindrance of tear duct issues.

Childhood Myopia and Diseases

Our dedicated approach to childhood myopia and various eye diseases involves early detection, accurate diagnosis, and tailored treatments. By addressing issues like myopia in children promptly, we aim to prevent vision deterioration. Our experts provide compassionate care, guiding parents and young patients toward effective treatments, ensuring optimal visual development and eye health.

Diabetic Retinopathy Screening and Management

Diabetic Retinopathy Screening is vital for individuals with diabetes. Our comprehensive screenings use advanced imaging technology to detect retinal changes. With precise monitoring and customised management plans, we preserve vision by controlling diabetic retinopathy progression. Our specialists offer expert care, emphasising the importance of regular screenings in preventing diabetes-related vision loss.

Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking

Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL) is a treatment halting the progression of keratoconus, a corneal disorder. Using UV light and riboflavin eye drops, CXL strengthens the cornea, preventing its thinning and distortion. This procedure stabilises vision, reducing the need for corneal transplants. Our skilled professionals perform CXL, ensuring improved corneal integrity and visual clarity.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery is a common and highly successful procedure at our centre. Our experienced surgeons skillfully remove the clouded natural lens and replace it with a clear, artificial intraocular lens. Cataract surgery restores clear vision, vivid colours, and enhances overall visual quality. With advanced techniques and lens options, we tailor the surgery to each patient’s unique needs, ensuring optimal outcomes and improved quality of life.

ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) Surgery

ICL surgery involves implanting a thin, biocompatible lens inside the eye to correct refractive errors like myopia and astigmatism. This procedure offers remarkable visual clarity and a wide range of vision without altering the corneal tissue. ICL surgery is ideal for individuals with thin corneas or high prescriptions, providing exceptional visual outcomes and improved quality of life.

Eye Lid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the eyelids. Our skilled surgeons address drooping eyelids, puffiness, and under-eye bags, restoring a youthful and refreshed look. With meticulous techniques, we enhance both aesthetics and functionality, ensuring natural-looking results and improved vision if sagging lids obstruct your sight.

I came recommended by a family friend. The staff are friendly and I felt comfortable and assured during the day of the ops. Everything was communicated to me properly and I had great confidence in Dr Eugene. The ops was done so quickly and I regained about 70-80% of my vision immediately after the ops. Within 3 days, my vision was 100%. As I have 3 young kids, being able to see without glasses is so good! The after service provided by the clinic was excellent.I really appreciate Dr Eugene Tay and staff for their help! 🙂

Glad to be able to finally see clearly with my real eyes without the hassle of contacts / glasses (:

Found Nova Eye Centre on google when I was researching on Lasik treatments. Was getting tired of using daily contact lenses & glasses. Have had glasses since 19 years ago! Saw the great reviews and decided to give it a go with the first consultation. Thankfully after assessing, my eyes were suitable for the RELEX Smile treatment. The whole procedure was only 7 mins and I could already see quite clearly the next day. Even the follow-up appointments were fast & smooth. The staff were all really nice and friendly. Dr Eugene Tay was also very accommodating & assured me that I made the right decision. Honestly the best decision ever made - I threw my glasses the week after I did my treatment. Been sharing this to my friends to make sure they give it a go too! Thank you Nova Eye Centre team!!
