What is the difference between Astigmatism and Myopia? Can Astigmatism be cured? Did you know that about 65 per cent of children aged 12 in Singapore are myopic? Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is an eye problem causing blurred vision at a distance. When myopia is not treated with corrective lenses or surgery, it can lead to squinting, eyestrain, headaches, and eventually severe vision loss. Dr Daphne Han from Dr Daphne Han Chuk Yin Ophthalmologist will advise and answer your questions on controlling and managing these eye conditions. Feel free to clear your doubts on this topic!
Dr Daphne Han Chuk Yin Ophthalmologist will be hosting a webinar on the 24th of July 2020(6pm) to answer your questions.
