- Doctor’s Advice
We have been patients before, and so have our loved ones. This experience has taught us that the journey of seeking medical care is not just about “fixing our bodies”. Deciding to see a doctor often takes courage. So, when we arrive for our consultation, we may be feeling anxious and even fearful. Therefore, every touch point counts, from the appointment staff whom we speak to about our appointments, to the allied health staff who perform tests for us and of course, the doctor whom we entrust our care to.
The name of our clinic is a reminder of our focus. Hesed stands for loving kindness. Our focus is to treat everyone who walks through our doors, the way we would want to be treated:

Technology aids diagnosis and monitoring of your eye condition by taking away the subjectivity through precise measurements and grading. The powerful imaging technology we have also allows our patients to better visualise and understand their condition. We also employ technology for treatment and surgery to bring about our aim of good outcomes and quicker recovery.
The technology we use at Hesed Eye Specialists include:
Technology to image and diagnose conditions from the front of the eye to the back of the eye
At Hesed Eye, we are well versed in cataract surgery technologies so we can leverage on the advantages of the different surgery systems to the specific conditions of the cataract we are working on.
