Corneal & External Eye Disease


The Corneal and External Eye Disease Department is at the forefront of clinical innovations, application and education in the field of cornea transplantation.

Education and training opportunities are available to cornea sub-specialists on advanced transplantation techniques.

Two popular instructional courses conducted by the department (in collaboration with the Asia Cornea Society) have educated many cornea surgeons in the advanced techniques of Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK) and Descemet-Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK).

Our cornea specialists also conduct international, regional and local teaching courses on advanced cornea transplantation techniques, refractive surgery, and pterygium surgery at various overseas ophthalmological meetings of international standing such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology. We have further shared our experiences by contributing to various publications and book chapters on all aspects of cornea diseases and management.

The Cornea Department offers comprehensive Cornea Fellowships for ophthalmologists to be future cornea sub-specialists. The SNEC Cornea Fellowship is competitive in nature and process and is merit-based.  International Fellows from the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Mexico, China, Thailand, India and the Philippines have benefitted from the training at the SNEC Cornea Department.
