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.

In keeping with our commitment to put the latest technology within your reach, Eye Care Center is proud to announce that Dr. Mardelli is one of the first ophthalmologists in Lebanon to operate on the VERION Image Guided System™. The system helps with patient imaging, procedure planning and surgical guidance.

With the VERION Image Guided System™, surgeons can now consistently deliver a new era of refractive cataract precision. The VERION™ Reference unit creates a high-resolution digital image of the patient’s eye, capturing scleral vessels, limbus and iris features. This “fingerprint” of the eye is used throughout the procedure, allowing the surgeon to position all incision and alignment in real time according to the patient’s customized surgical plan.

The VERION Image Guided System Can help:

  • Minimize data transcription errors
  • Improve clinical efficiency
  • Increase toric and multifocal IOL confidence
  • Ensure surgical consistency
  • Optimize visual outcomes


The Image, Plan, Guide Workflow:


Measurements taken by the VERION Reference Unit include:

  • Dynamic keratometry
  • Limbus position and diameter
  • White-to-white horizontal distance
  • Pupillometry
  • Corneal reflex position
  • Eccentricity of the visual axis


Patient measurement data is automatically imported into the planning software. This streamlined prepopulating of data fields helps optimize planning efficiency and minimize transcription errors.


During the procedure, the VERION Image Guided System positions all incision locations and assists with lens alignment in real time while accounting for the variable impact of patient eye movement.
