Cataract Surgery

Mr. Geh has had more than 10 years experience in performing small incision sutureless cataract surgery (phakoemulsification) He has personally performed more than 5000 cataract procedures.

In the vast majority of cases, the operation can be performed comfortably under topical anaesthetic drops only. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. Overnight stay is unnecessary and most patients will notice an improvement in vision several hours after the operation. Normal daily activities can resume after 24 hours although a clear eye shield should be worn at night for the first week. Drops will also need to be administered for about a month following surgery.

Most patients will be independent of spectacle wear for the distance but may need reading glasses. In selected patients, a multifocal lens may be implanted to give patients total spectacle independence.

 

Squint Surgery for Children

Mr. Geh routinely performs squint surgery for children. This procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic. Overnight stay is usually unnecessary.

The operation itself takes about an hour and a local anaesthetic is given around the eye after surgery.  Mr Geh is one of the surgeons in the country to perform minimally invasive small incision squint surgery.  In some cases, the skin of the eye may not even need stitching.  The advantage of this new procedure is faster recovery and less postoperative discomfort and scarring.  Most children may however be slightly light sensitive for the first 24 hours after the operation. The eye may also feel slightly bruised and look red for a few days. Drops will be given to prevent any infections and to speed up healing. Simple pain relief with paracetamol is all that is usually necessary for the first few days following surgery.

Arrangements should be made to be off school for a week and a follow up appointment is usually made for 1 - 2 weeks after surgery. Swimming should be avoided for 1 month following surgery.

 

Squint Surgery for Adults

Mr. Geh treats many adults who feel socially embarrassed by their squints. Occasionally they may also be troubled with double vision or eye strain.  Many have had previous squint surgery as children.

Mr. Geh is one of a few surgeons in the region to offer adjustable squint surgery. The operation is performed under a general anaesthetic but the eye position may be fine tuned and adjusted whilst the patient is awake following surgery. This allows for a better and more predictable surgical outcome.
