Tour ECC and Enjoy the Latest in Ophthalmic Diagnostic and Treatment Equipment.

Multifocal IOLs are now used in up to 40% of cataract surgery in Europe and the US.  Dr. Pierre Mardelli was the first surgeon to have used it in Lebanon and the Middle East back in 2004. Come benefit from our years of experience and let us show you the difference.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) and around the eyelids for a short period of time (temporary). At ECC we aim for a more "natural look".

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness.  ECC acquired the latest Visual Field Analyzer from Haag Streit and OCT from Optovue. Both are vital for earlier diagnosis and follow-up of this blinding disease.

The newest generation excimer laser from AMO: The VISX S4 with the iDesign Advanced Wavescan Studio (TM). This is the first system of its kind in Lebanon and the Middle East. Go ahead and call us for more info.

Custom LASIK with the iDesign Wavescan Studio System combines two exciting technologies to reshape the cornea to reduce or eliminate visual distortions. This technology has the potential to improve how much and how well you can see as well as reduce the risks of post-LASIK complications.

LASIKis a refractive surgical procedure that corrects your vision, thus lessening your dependence on any corrective devices such as contact lenses or eyeglasses. At ECC we strive to offer you the latest technology such as Custom LASIK using the iDesign Wavescan.

With the new aquisition of the latest generation excimer laser, ECC is setting the bar ever higher. We strive to provide our patients with the best customer-care experience and quality of vision available today.

 
Our procedures:
LASIK and PRK
 

PRK

In PRK, the top most "skin" layer of the cornea is mechanically removed using surgical instruments. The laser is then focused on the newly exposed outer layers of the cornea, reshaping its curvature to correct the refractive error.

 

 

LASIK

In LASIK, a cutting device called a microkeratome is used to cut a thin flap on the surface of the cornea. This thin flap is folded back, and the laser is used to remove thin layers of tissue from the exposed mid-corneal layers. The application of the laser energy is the same as in PRK or surface ablation. Following the sculpting or reshaping of the cornea, the flap is returned into position, and it adheres to the cornea without stitches.

 

 

So what is Best for Me?

If the corneal pachymetry allows it, then LASIK is the prefered technique since the recovery is fast and the patient is back to work the next day.  If the cornea is on the thinner side then we prefer to proceed with PRK with the application of a special anti-fibrotic agent (Mitomycin C) to avoid late-onset complications such as ectasia.

If you are still unsure then we urge you to schedule an appoitment with one of our expert surgeons to discuss the different options available for you.
