Dr. Gan diagnoses and manages eye diseases, co-manages eye surgeries with top eye surgeons, and prescribes treatments, glasses or specialty contact lenses for all your needs. Most of all, Dr. Gan puts the patient first so that they get the best possible eye care which suits their needs.

Since Nov 2005, Dr Gan has become a national leader in Cornea Refractive Therapy (CRT) for treating near-sightedness. CRT is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The FDA approved CRT therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep and provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking. Because CRT offer freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Dr Gan's CRT patients include people from all over the world. Click here to see more details and the many successful CRT cases by Dr Gan.
