Treatment

Vuity – New treatment for presbyopia or ‘Lao Hua’
Non-invasive and Safe

Vuity is a new treatment for patients with presbyopia, or ‘Lao Hua’. It is a
medicated eye drop that improves near vision and the ability to read, and is
safe to use.

The daily dose is 1 – 2 drops per day spaced about 6 hours apart. It
improves near vision without reading glasses by about 3 lines.

It has minimal side effects and has been approved by the FDA in the US since
2021. An examination by an Ophthalmologist is necessary before Vuity can be
prescribed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cataract surgery in Singapore is a relatively quick procedure, lasting around 30 to 45 minutes on an outpatient basis. Most patients should be able to go home on the same day after the surgery has been completed.

After undergoing cataract surgery in Singapore, there are certain practices patients are recommended to follow as shown below.

 

Do:

Follow any advice given to you by your eye specialist in Singapore.

Wear sunglasses on bright days for at least a year after surgery.

Avoid swimming to minimise your risk of infections.

Use eye drops prescribed your eye doctor in Singapore.

 

Do Not:

Drive until after the first day of your cataract surgery.

Perform strenuous activities.

Rub your eyes.

Wear eye make up if possible.

Cataract surgery in Singapore should not be painful. Though patients are awake during the surgery, local anesthesia is used to numb the area resulting in little to no pain or discomfort. Experiencing pain after the procedure is rare as well, but mild to moderate discomfort is common and should fade in time.

The lens implanted by your eye specialist during cataract surgery is durable and should last a lifetime. However, diabetes and glaucoma are other conditions that may affect your eyes, resulting in limited vision irrespective of successful cataract surgery. In addition, the capsule holding the lens may also become cloudy at times, in which case, a laser is used to correct the cloudiness.

The side effects of cataract surgery typically improve within a few days, however, it can take up to 4 to 6 weeks for complete recovery. During this stage, it is vital to closely heed the instructions of your eye doctor to ensure a smooth and seamless recovery process.
