With the COVID-19 situation evolving at the time of print, we would like to express our gratitude for the support and encouragement given to our colleagues at SNEC and SERI during this period.

Read about the infection control measures in our clinics, extraordinary contributions by the staff, as well as essential information you need to safeguard yourself and your loved ones against the pandemic from page 4.

Before the COVID-19 outbreak in Singapore, celebrations for SNEC’s 30th anniversary kick-started with a glamorous Dinner and Dance early this year (page 10). The 1st Asia- Pacific Ocular Imaging Society (APOIS) Meeting (page 12) was also a key event to commemorate this milestone.

Vision problems can affect all aspects of a child’s development and result in lifelong consequences. In Cover Story (page 14), Dr Yvonne Ling, Senior Consultant, and Dr Saadia Zohra Farooqui, Consultant, in SNEC’s Paediatric Ophthalmology & Adult Strabismus Department, talk about the importance of prevention and early intervention of paediatric eye conditions.

The fight against myopia continues, and you can play a part by participating in The Use of Atropine 0.01% in the Prevention and Control of Myopia (ATOM3) clinical trial. Find out more on page 25.

We are also proud to announce that a team from SNEC and SERI has been awarded the prestigious President’s Science Award for their distinguished work in myopia research (page 35).

As the nation works collectively to overcome COVID-19 as one united people, we wish all our readers good health and happiness.
