Dr. Eugene Tay is Singapore Vision Centre’s medical director and consultant ophthalmologist. He has over 16 years of experience and is committed to providing the highest standards of medical and surgical eye care for both local patients and medical travelers, as well as both children and adults.
Dr. Tay graduated from St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College in 1997 and in 1999, he obtained his Master of Science in Immunology from Imperial College, both in London. It is here where he developed his interest in ophthalmology that pushed him to participate in basic science research on the subject. He furthered his knowledge and completed both his basic and advanced surgical training at Moorfields Eye Hospital (also in London). Following his training, he served at some of London's teaching hospitals, including Western Eye Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital, where he gained extensive clinical experience and knowledge.
Dr. Tay, whose interests include refractive surgery, advanced cataract surgery, and allergic eye diseases, is also fellowship-trained at Gimbel Eye Centre. Prior to joining Singapore Vision Centre, he was a consultant ophthalmologist at the Laser Vision Centre, Singapore National Eye Centre.
