Meet our Educators

VisionSave aims to nurture the next generation of eye care professionals through intensive training and development opportunities.

Hear from some of our educators, residents and fellows about how VisionSave has opened the doors for them to learn from top clinicians and contribute to Singapore’s healthcare system.

Senior Consultant, Corneal & External Eye Disease Department
Singapore National Eye Centre

“Even though my colleagues and I are considered ophthalmology specialists and experts, we recognise the need to continue learning and sharing our experiences with the next generation."

VisionSave has supported efforts such as the Leadership Development Programme developed by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. I was fortunate enough to be the only Asian participant nominated to undergo the programme in the 20th graduating class. 

The year-long programme includes multiple courses and masterclasses on leadership and communication taught by ophthalmology experts from the USA, Central America and South America. With the skills learned from this programme, I hope to establish a similar programme here in Asia to encourage ophthalmologists to develop and learn from experts from other fields outside of Medicine.

SNEC-SERI Clinical Academic Fellow for Medical Officers

“Under the SNEC-SERI Clinical Academic Fellowship, I was given the opportunity to explore different types of research. This wonderful opportunity has helped me to develop further as a clinician, to apply innovation to better understand certain eye conditions.
It is great to know that this further benefits our patient’s future through improving their sight or quality of living.”

Assistant Director of Nursing
Singapore National Eye Centre

"Patient care has always been the central focus of my career, and I’m passionate about teaching younger nurses about the ethos and values of good nursing. To do so, good training in ophthalmic nursing is necessary, and we need to enrol more nurses in SNEC programmes such as the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Nursing (Ophthalmology), as well as courses for ophthalmic assistants and technicians."

VisionSave has worked with the D.S. Lee foundation to offer educational bursaries to eligible nursing students. Such generous contributions help keep our education and training initiatives sustainable.

Help ensure the continuous growth and sustainability of Singapore’s eye care system by supporting the next generation of eye care professionals. Even S$10 can make a difference.

Yes, I want to invest in the future of eye care.
