Health conditions and treatments


Dr Michael Shiu will discuss with you the most appropriate treatment for your glaucoma and its stage of progression.

Laser Refractive Surgery

It utilizes precise laser technology to reshape the cornea, effectively reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses in individuals with refractive vision errors .


Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy natural lens of the eye and replacing it with a clear artificial lens to restore clear vision.

Pterygium Surgery

Dr Michael Shiu is experienced in pterygium treatment. In cases where the pterygium is actively growing onto the cornea and threatening to distort the vision, the only effective treatment is surgical removal.
