Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) spearheads and coordinates the provision of specialised ophthalmological services and is the designated national centre for eye services in Singapore.
Known for its high quality one-stop personalised service for patients who require eye care services, the staff of 450 highly specialised medical paramedical and administrative personnel at SNEC currently manages 14,000 major eye surgeries and 13,000 laser procedures annually. These include more than 10,000 Phaco Cataract Surgeries, 7,000 LASIK procedures and 6,000 Laser procedures for Diabetic Retinopathy and Glaucoma.
- SNEC is a world pioneer in conjunctival stem cell transplant which is a technique of growing one's own stem cells to treat conditions such as chemical injuries, severe contact lens overwear and Steven-Johnson's Syndrome.
- SNEC surgeons also performed the region's first revolutionary "Tooth-in-Eye" (Osteo-odoonto Keratoprosthesis) surgery to restore patient's eyesight. This is a complex two-stage operation which aims to restore vision to the most severe cases of corneal and ocular surface patients.
