Dr Kavitha Palaniappan

Eye Specialist / Consultant Ophthalmologist

Hello and welcome to my site, iDrKavitha! I'm Dr Kavitha, eye specialist currently practicing in Hospital Pantai Ayer Keroh, Melaka. In this digital era, it's easier for patients to learn about their conditions even before setting foot inside the clinic. However, it is important to get the right information and it is also equally important to obtain updated information. With the wealth of information available online, it's difficult to differentiate the facts from fictions and truth from tales. Hence, I though it's imperative for me to a start website to create awareness, answer questions and to keep readers updated with valuable vision and eye-health related information as well as to know me a little better.
