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.
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 both a pioneer and strong advocate of surface-based laser vision correction as a safe way for patients to achieve their dream of clear vision.
In 2019, Dr. Ho made the long-awaited decision to undergo lasik surgery himself.
Being an active sportsperson, and having personally performed lasik on tens of thousands of eyes, Dr. Ho decided to undergo the procedure himself.
And having gone through the entire lasik experience, Dr. Ho has made further improvements to the healing process for his patients, allowing for an even more comfortable and smoother recovery.
Today, as Director and Senior Consultant Ophthalmologist, Dr. Tony Ho continues to help his patients see clearly, safely through flapless, bladeless procedures like Safe Sight TransPRK and SMILE. He also sees patients with eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts, and helps young patients with controlling their myopia progression.
Besides helping his patients see clearly, Dr. Ho also has a strong passion for nature and sailing – he regularly sails out to islands around Singapore as well as to neighbouring countries.
