Angry Botched Eye Surgery

Hi
A bit of background, I did ICL (implantable contact lens) for both my eyes.
One side of my vision is still slightly blurry and I was told by the doctor that he did not fit the lens right and said if I choose to adjust the lens, I've to pay for another surgery.

Has anyone gone through such a situation before?

I'm a little pissed about it. Like I've to pay for the mistake he made.

Any one able to advise on my situation. Thanks

What can the Singapore Medical Board do? Also part of the surgery was paid for via my shield plan which I've come to realize that the doctor did it by declaring a medical condition which I did not have. Would I be implicated also?

This is ridiculous
Itís the doc fault and yet you still have to pay to redo it?
I interested to know who the doc is or which clinic

if you did not collude with the doc in the false declaration, then why would you be implicated?

In fact, you will be doing the MOH/CPF a job to expose such unethical doctor. it's the same for the GP overinflating the consultation fees and false claims on the CHAS card holder.

can you please update on your case if there are new development?
