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:
Yag Laser Surgery
 

At ECC we have recently acquired the latest generation Nd.Yag laser from Nidek.  This laser is used to treat different eye disorders namely:

-Posterior Capsule Opacification (PCO)

-Narrow Angles and Angle Closure Glaucoma

Posterior Capsule Opacification

This condition occurs following cataract surgery if the posterior capsule is left untouched. It occurs days (as in children), months and even years after cataract surgery.  Patients usually present complaining of decrease in their visual acuity with similar symptoms prior to cataract surgery. that is why this is known as "secondary cataract".

The posterior capsule, which is left intact during surgery, holds the new IOL or lens.  Cells from the lens equator use the posterior capsule as glide and cover over the time the central portion thus causing a decrease in vision.  The new square-edge IOL help in decreasing the migration of these cells and cause less PCO than rounded-edge IOL.

The Yag laser is used to create an opening in the posterior capsule thus restoring good vision.  The procedure is painless and patients can return to normal activity immediately after the procedure with optimal results few hours following the procedure.

Narrow Angles or Angle Closure Glaucoma

When a patient presents with an attack of angle closure and high eye pressure, the Yag laser is used to perform an iridotomy or a hole in the peripheral iris to help the fluid trapped behind it gain the angle and lower the pressure.  In narrow angles, the eye pressure is usually normal but angle closure is imminent and the iridotomy will prevent such an attack. Angle closure glaucoma is on the rise worldwide and with the availability of such a device, we at ECC urge you to have an eye exam and prevent such a disastrous disease from even occuring.
