Patients who require cataract surgery can undergo the procedure in two dedicated operating theatres within SKH.

In addition, our doctors also provide urgent consultations and ophthalmic care for patients warded at SKH.

Our Services

General Cataract & Comprehensive Ophthalmology

Our general cataract and comprehensive ophthalmology services include screenings for eye disease and disorders, visual acuity and accuracy exams, prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses, and any surgical evaluations that might be required. If your medical condition requires an ophthalmology specialist, you will be referred to one by our eye clinic.

At SKH, we offer:

  • Comprehensive eye examination
  • Cataract assessment and small-incision cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation [with options of premium intraocular lens for astigmatism (toric lens) and presbyopia (multifocal lenses)]


The cornea is a crucial part of the eye that acts as its outermost lens. It works like a window controlling and focusing the entry of light into the eye and makes up a large part of the eye’s total focusing ability. Our eye doctors and specialists can help you with: 

  • Investigation and diagnosis of cornea problems
  • Consultation and initial treatment for corneal infections and ulcers
  • Analysis and diagnosis of common cornea degenerations


Glaucoma is a type of eye disease where vision is impaired and often lost due to damage in the optic nerve of the eye. SKH provides:

  • Screening for early glaucoma and evaluation of glaucoma suspects
  • Evaluation and diagnosis of glaucoma using technologically advanced devices such as the Humphrey Visual Field Analyser (HVF) and Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT)
  • Medical and laser treatment of glaucoma

  • Diabetic retinopathy and other vascular eye diseases

Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery refers to any surgical procedure around the eye socket, eyelid, tear ducts and the face. These surgeries can often involve the reconstruction of the eye and surrounding structures and will be carried out by a qualified team of eye surgeons and specialists.

Our specialist eye clinic offers diagnosis and assessment of

  • Lumps and bumps around the eye
