SINGAPORE – It was their son’s degenerative eye disease that set ophthalmologist Dr Audrey Looi and her neurosurgeon husband Dr Ang Beng Ti on the path of philanthropy.
The couple were devastated around a decade ago to find out that James, now 19, suffers from Stargardt’s disease, which causes progressive vision loss, when he was in primary school.
To make matters worse, there was a serious lack of programmes then to support children with low vision in their educational and other needs, Dr Ang, 51, said.
