Dr Pat Lim is in the unique position of having both a western medicine and TCM perspective in the area of eye conditions
I previously experienced dry eyes and chronic eye strain from the use of computers for an extended period of time. Western medicine was ineffective in addressing these conditions, and eye drops were prescribed just to alleviate symptoms. As the eye discomfort was severely affecting my work, I decided to look for TCM solutions and subsequently consulted Dr Pat Lim.
Dr Pat Lim is in the unique position of having both a western medicine and TCM perspective in the area of eye conditions. She uses standard medical equipment for eye check-ups, such as visual field, optic nerve distribution scans and eye pressure measurements, to determine if there is an urgent need for emergency specialist attention. In addition, she also uses her TCM expertise to determine your condition holistically, and prescribes herbal medicine to treat the underlying causes of eye discomfort. While TCM treatment can be slow and have to be taken over a period, I found that my initial eye issues slowly got better with time fortunately.
She is a conscientious and friendly doctor who is sincere about treating her patient’s eye conditions. She conducted scans and monitored the health of my eyes over a period of time, and checked in frequently to see if my eyes have felt improvements over the course of medication. She also reinforces good lifestyle habits to aid in the recovery of my eye strain issues. Overall, I would recommend her to particularly those who have experienced eye discomfort but have not managed to find an effective western diagnosis.
