The Asia Retina Team
Dr Claudine Pang
Dr Claudine Pang is the consultant ophthalmologist of Asia Retina. In 2004, she finished her Double Bachelor in Medicine and Surgery from the National University of Singapore where she was given a Gold Medal and Distinction in Medical Ethics. She got her post-graduate degrees in Opthalmology during her 8 years of service at the Singapore National Eye Centre.
She was the very first female doctor to receive no other than the University of British Columbia's William H. Ross Surgical Vitreoretinal Fellowship. That and a whole lot more of distinct awards plus experience as an ophthalmologist for over 15 years has made Dr Pang one of the best cataract specialists in Singapore. Her strong point, aside from cataract surgery, includes macular surgery (age-related macular degeneration), myopia treatment, as well as retinal detachment procedures. She is also skilled at managing hereditary diseases that affect the peepers. Despite her accomplishments and awards, she still goes on family mission trips to help the underprivileged people and communities.
Angela Tang finished a Bachelor in Optometry in the year 2015. The year after, she accomplished her Master’s Degree of Science in Clinical Optometry from Salus University, College of Optometry. She specialises in contact and spectacle lens prescriptions. She also has a wise judgement for refractive conditions and is into low vision aids.
Valerie Chen is an imaging specialist and head optometrist at the clinic. She has 5 years of experience with optometry and is particularly skilled in ophthalmic imaging. She has the ability to achieve detailed eye images, even ones that are very complicated.
Latest Innovative Technology at Asia Retina
This ultra-wide field innovative equipment can capture 200-degrees or 82% view of the retina in one image in less than 0.5 seconds. The ordinary retinal photograph only captures 15% of the retina which is way below the ultra-modern Optos Daytona.
To provide vital diagnostic information regarding glaucoma, cornea, and retinal diseases, the Heidelberg Spectralis can do so. This high-resolution and non-invasive imaging system can show the microscopic information of the retina like retinal histology.
The Galilei Analyzer combines Dual- Scheimpflug tomography and complex technology as that of Placido topography to give an all-encompassing solution for refractive surgery planning and cataract.
Iridex Micropulse Laser
For glaucoma and retinal diseases treatments, the Iridex Micropulse Laser, which is currently used in Asia Retina, can do it in a non-damaging laser method. This doesn’t cause any coagulative damage or damage to the eye.
Ellex Tango Reflex Laser
For after-cataracts, floaters, and glaucoma, Tango Reflex laser can easily treat it with laser. This is a comprehensive laser machine that merges multiple laser treatments into one platform.
Zeiss IOL Master 700
The most recent swept-source biometry system, the Zeiss IOL Mater 700 allows precise calculation of intraocular lens power that is needed in cataract surgery.

Asia Retina’s Eye-Care App
Asia Retina takes pride in its app which allows their patients to take care of their eyes the best way possible. The app has the ability to check various factors, such as colour vision, dry eye quiz, visual acuity, and macular grid for people who don’t have the luxury of time to go to the clinic. Users of the app can also book an appointment easily from the app. Subscribers of the app can also track their medical records and can even be notified when it is due to put on the eye drops. The app is made to help their clients take care of their eyes which is part of their mission.
Asia Retina Eye Surgery Centre makes it a point to give back to the underprivileged as well. They have conducted mission trips to some of the poorest communities where there is no medical access to eye care to give free comprehensive eye screening exams.
