Dr Heng is a popular choice amongst pet parents who are looking for a relatively affordable vet with experience. She has been known for her special interest in ophthalmology even before there were specialists in Singapore.

She enrolled in a postgraduate course in veterinary ophthalmology mentored by Dr Robin Stanley of Animal Eye Care, Melbourne. She also worked at his clinic as a locum veterinarian to update herself in this field.

Dr Nair completed the Postgraduate Ophthalmology program at the University of Sydney in 2013 and believes in early diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions.  

We recommended Dr Nair to someone with a dog that had a growth on the eyelid. She surgically removed it and the dog recovered well.
