Publications

The Department of Ophthalmology has had a proud and long-standing history of excellence in research. Over the years, we have developed major research programmes that have impacted clinical care and improved our patients' eye health.

Our affiliation with the Singapore Eye Research Institute has enables us to continue to participate in world leading research projects. I am proud to share that not only has some of our faculty's research work been published in several renowned international journals – including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Lancet, and Nature Genetics – it has also been presented at top regional and global meetings.
