A routine eye examination is medically advisable for patients in all age ranges. Unfortunately, many serious eye diseases are silent and produce few symptoms in their early treatable phases. Patients with diabetes, hypertension, cataracts, glaucoma, arthritis, or with a family history of eye problems should be seen according to a schedule outlined by Dr. Singh. Contact lens wearers and patients who wear glasses for myopia should be seen yearly, unless otherwise instructed.

Cataract surgery quickly restores your vision and at the same time decreases your dependence on glasses or contacts. Dr. Singh has over 15 years of medical and surgical experience. He has performed cataract surgery on thousands of eyes and is one of the leading surgeons in Washington DC area. He provides the most advanced cataract procedures as well as the latest choices in replacement lenses. In addition to standard or basic lens implants, Dr. Singh can offer premium lens implants to meet specific needs of individual patients.
LASIK or (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ Keratomileusis) is one of the safest and most effective vision correction procedures. The LASIK surgeon will use a gentle laser to create a thin round shaped flap in the cornea, then carefully lift the flap which exposes the inner tissue of the cornea. The surgeon will then re-shape the cornea with a pulsing cool laser beam. This laser beam will sculpt your cornea to match the shape of your contact lens or eye glass prescription. Next, the surgeon will return the corneal flap to its original position which starts the natural healing process.
