Profile

Dr. Tony Ho is a respected figure in the Singapore refractive surgery arena with 25 years of specialty experience. He is an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Royal College of Ophthalmology U.K., and recipient of the Singapore Public Service Commission Local Merit Scholarship. In 1992, Dr. Ho received fully accredited sub-specialist eye training in the USA, training at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. He also received training at the Moorfields Eye Hospital and the Tennant Eye Institute.

In 2001, Dr Ho founded Clearvision Eye Clinic & LASIK Centre in Singapore, dedicated towards quality and safety in LASIK surgery. And in Nov 2004, Dr. Ho began performing the flapless and bladeless laser vision correction procedure, epi-LASIK.

Founded in 2001 @ Nutmeg Road, next to Mount Elizabeth Hospital

Since 2005, Dr. Tony Ho has been certified to implant both the Artisan Veriscyce and the Star Visian ICL – the two FDA approved ICL brands in the market. Besides publishing numerous scientific papers and presentations, Dr. Ho has also published five books, one of which – The Complete Eye Care Book – in 1994 received a National Book Development Council Award and sold out its published run of 8,000 books within a year. In 1990, Dr. Ho published a scientific paper describing a method of laser iridotomy for glaucoma management, that is now widely employed by doctors around the world as the de-facto standard of iridotomies in dark brown irises.

Always embracing change and innovation, Dr. Ho has been a strong advocate of flapless, bladeless laser vision correction as a safe way for patients to achieve their dream of clear vision.

In 2019, Dr. Ho – a glasses wearer for most of his life – made the long-awaited decision to gift himself what had given to thousands of patients – the gift of clear vision with TransPRK – the minimally-invasive surface-based laser vision correction procedure.

Having personally performed TransPRK on thousands of eyes and witnessing just how safe and precise the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser was, gave Dr. Ho the confidence to undergo the surgery himself.

Ever since his TransPRK surgery, Dr. Ho has been enjoying seeing the world with new eyes and providing the best care for patients without being held back by glasses. And having gone through the entire TransPRK experience, Dr. Ho has made further improvements to the healing process for his patients, allowing for an even more comfortable and smoother recovery.
