About us


The Ocular Epidemiology Research Group, led by Professor Tien Yin Wong and Associate Professor Ching-Yu Cheng, conducts and coordinates epidemiological and population-based projects under the Singapore Epidemiology of Eye Diseases (SEED) programme. Our strategic vision is to provide novel knowledge in the population eye health to enable dissecting, detecting and preventing the most important eye diseases in both our children and ageing populations in Singapore and Asia, and also to promote and improve global eye health.

Our vision:

A world-leading research programme focusing specifically on the epidemiology and impact of eye diseases in Asia

  • Provide a one-stop “data portal” and information source on epidemiology of Asian eye diseases.
  • Cover an entire spectrum of prevalence, incidence, risk factors and impact of Asian eye diseases in 3 major racial/ethnic groups (Chinese, Malays, Indians).
