Surgery postponed for some, but necessary procedures still done. Dr Lee Hung Ming speaks to Straits time on this.

"Dr Lee Hung Ming, senior consultant from Asia-Pacific Eye Centre at Gleneagles Hospital, has reduced the number of procedures he does a month by around 90 per cent since the tightened circuit breaker measures came into effect.

This is especially since most of our cataract patients are elderly and they should stay at home."
