Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory, usually bilateral,
progressive disease where there is an inherent weakness of the Cornea
Collagen. It is characterized by a progressive thinning and weakening of
the cornea that result in a cone-shape cornea. The cone-shaped will
result in a distorted vision due to irregular astigmatism.
Cataract is the clouding of the lens in the eye. This causes
vision to be blurred or blocked, phobia to lights or even color
desaturation. EEC offers a comprehensive range of Presbyopia treatment
options to suit the unique needs of our patients. As a result of our
established reputation in cataract treatment, EEC was chosen by one of
the world's largest eyecare company to be Singaporeďż˝s representative

EEC's Myopia Control Program targets at reducing the progression of
myopia in children. We are proud to announce that 100% of the children,
who have since been enrolled in the Eagle Myopia Control Program, have

promising result with an 80% reduction in myopia progression over a 2
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration is an age-related medical condition which
results in a loss of vision in the centre of the visual field because of
damage to the retina. It is a major cause of blindness in the elderly.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness in the
world and accounts for 40% of blindness in Singapore. People of
different races and ages are affected by glaucoma. It is often called
the 'silent thief of sight'™ as patients often do not have symptoms
until in advanced disease. Early detection and treatment will prevent
irreversible visual loss and blindness from glaucoma.
Diabetic retinopathy is damage to the retina caused by
complications of diabetes mellitus, which can eventually lead to
blindness. It affects up to 80% of all patients who have had diabetes

of the eye and grows towards the pupil. EEC offers patients the solution
of surgically removing the pterygium.
Eagle MyoVision Program
Myopia affects over 1.6 billion people globally, with two thirds
of sufferers in Asia. Scientists from Australia have found that myopia
progression can be reduced with a new lens technology. This ground
breaking discovery was based on research conducted by University of
Houston College of Optometry and the Brien Holden Vision Institute,
located at the University of New South Wales.
Corneal Transplant is a surgical procedure to restore vision to
those blind from corneal diseases, infections, age-related corneal
degenerations or damaged corneas due to injuries. Corneal transplant is a
