Received excellent attention on both cataract operations from all nursing staff and Mr Ong himself, who re-assured me at every stage thoroughly explaining each step of the procedure (which was amazingly quick!) and detailing best post-operative care.
The improvement in my vision have been astounding and will definitely enhance my quality of life. Very grateful to Mr Ong and his team. – Mr P –

In Excellent Hands
Mr Ong operated on both my cataracts, one after another. From my very first appointment I was confident that I was in excellent hands. During the recovery period, he was always available to advise and reassure me. From the day after each operation, I was amazed at the extension of my vision. It has changed my life for which I am grateful. – Mrs BG –

Everyone was so friendly and kind. – Sir MB –
