At Beacon Hospital, emphasis is placed on the prevention and early detection of eye conditions.
Many common eye conditions, such as glaucoma, cataract, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration, do not cause symptoms in the early stages. However, they can lead to irreversible and, sometimes, severe loss of vision if left untreated.
These eye conditions can occur to anyone, although those who are older, or have hypertension and diabetes, are at higher risk.
Beacon Hospital offers eye screening examinations using the retina scan duo machine. Eye screening can pick up these conditions at an early stage, so that medical interventions can be carried out before permanent damage is done.
Where treatment is necessary, our eye specialists are experienced in treating a wide range of conditions including:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Retinal detachment
- Droopy eye
- Eyelid tumour and malfunction
- Thyroid eye disease
- Blockage of tear drainage system (watery eye)
