Eye Screening Singapore

The leading causes of vision impairment globally1 are:

  1. Diabetic Retinopathy
  2. Glaucoma
  3. Age-Related Macular Degeneration

According to the Ministry of Health (MOH) Singapore1, eye diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy may be asymptomatic in the early stages. Going for regular eye screening enables early detection and gives a higher chance to save your eyesight.

Frequently Asked Questions

My eyes feel fine, do I still need eye screening?

Yes, going for regular eye screening is recommended every 12 to 24 months for early detection.

What if signs of an eye disease have been detected?

You may speak to your doctor for a eye specialist referral. The report you receive will also provide a recommendation on the steps to take next.

What is the difference between a vision screening and comprehensive eye health screening?

Vision screening, traditionally called an eye test, is a simple test for evaluation of your vision and checking for simple-to-detect eye problems. It cannot and should not replace a comprehensive eye health screening, an in-depth examination to check for signs of serious eye problems or diseases, such as Diabetic Retinopathy, Glaucoma, Cataracts, etc. These vision-threatening eye conditions may be treatable if detected early.

Can too much screen time cause eye problems?

Too much screen time can result in dry eyes, eyestrain, and discomfort. Some may notice blurred or double vision and eye irritation. It is recommended to look away from the screen every 20 minutes or so and blink often to keep your eyes moist. However, it is not likely to cause permanent eye damage and is not a component for development of glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration.
