Additionally, Dr. Singh performs the latest techniques in cataract surgery, including toric (astigmatism) and multifocal implants.
Dr. Singh is one of only a few ophthalmologists in the Houston area specializing in Corneal Disease, which has recently undergone a revolution in new techniques and procedures.

Dr. Singh believes that communication is the foundation to a strong and healthy doctor-patient relationship, and is generous in sharing his time with patients to explain their condition or disease, answer their questions, and address their concerns.
“I value the trust and confidence that patients place in me for treating their eye diseases, and strive to make every patient’s experience pleasant and informative.”
