About


Dr David Chan graduated from the University of Leicester Medical School, United Kingdom. He obtained his Masters of Medicine from the National University of Singapore and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh, Scotland as well as the Academy of Medicine of Singapore.

He holds post-graduate degrees in Ophthalmology from both Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh, Scotland and the National University of Singapore. Dr Chan completed his fellowship surgical training in both Anterior Segment Surgery and Refractive Surgery at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada under the direct tutelage of Professor Howard V Gimbel.

He is a member of several international ophthalmological societies where he has presented on his research efforts and acted as reviewer in their respective peer-reviewed journals. These include the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and the Asia Pacific Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.

Dr Chan is fully registered with both the British General Medical Council and the Singapore Medical Council. While in Canada, he was registered with the Medical Council of Canada and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta. He has been fully accredited as a specialist in ophthalmology by the Ministry of Health, Singapore.
Having practised ophthalmology since 1999, his extensive experience includes research on new cataract surgical devices utilising nanotechnology. He has published reports on ocular pathology, including ophthalmic complications of dengue and age-related macular degeneration. He has co-authored several books and publications in the field of refractive surgery and complex cataract surgery.

Dr Chan was trained in the field of Complex Cataract Surgery, Anterior Segment Surgery and Refractive surgery at the Singapore National Eye Centre and the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Anterior segment surgery involves dealing with surgical repairs to eyes with complex problems such as high risk cataracts, lens replacement or exchange, lens capsular bag support and iris repair. His other area of sub-specialisation involves refractive surgery specifically: collagen cross linking, laser vision correction, implantable collamer lens and refractive lens exchange.
Dr Chan has trained numerous eye surgeons from around the world as Clinical Tutor at the National University of Singapore and as course coordinator and Surgical Instructor for surgical training courses at both SNEC and the University of Calgary.

In 2003, Dr Chan received the Courage STAR Award from the Ministry of Health, Singapore, for his involvement at the frontline of Singapore’s battle against the SARS epidemic. He has also been involved in charity missions, performing surgery in various parts of South East Asia, Canada and Singapore.
