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.

Custom LASIK

Custom LASIK is performed the same way as vision correction, and it uses advanced mapping systems to determine a precise treatment solution for your vision.  Eye Care Center is the first and only center in Lebanon and the region to offer the latest in LASIK surgery procedures to its patients. The iDesign Advanced Wavescan Studio system is used to map "high order aberrations," or corneal irregularities, linked to poor vision. Visx new technology offers 5 times greater resoution than the wavescan it replaces(1,200 points vs 250 in the old WaveScan). The iDesign can also detect small imperfections by creating a map of your cornea. These imperfections and irregularities are generally linked to glares and halos, and once corrected with Custom LASIK, can dramatically improve vision.

What's the Biggest Difference Between Custom LASIK and Traditional LASIK?

The primary difference between Custom LASIK and Traditional LASIK, is the use of a WaveFront analyzer - originally invented by NASA for use in high-powered telescopes. WaveFront technology is now available for medical use. Part of the challenge for eye surgeons has been the inability to obtain a complete picture of the eye and all imperfections that may exist. Each eye has its own characteristics and the conditions that cause nearsightedness, astigmatism or other vision problems can vary, depending on the severity of the problem and the wavefront measurements of the eye. The iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio scans the eye and makes a colored map of it, pinpointing where imperfections are located and showing surgeons a 3-D image. This, in turn, provides the following benefits

• Enables customised LASIK treatment for each eye
• Creates a more in-depth pictu
re of the eye
• Painless procedure
• The mapping takes seconds, minimising physical discomfort.
• Produces greater accuracy for the surgeon.

The WaveFront analyzer produces a sophisticated treatment map of your corneas, like a fingerprint, and it is 25 times more precise than standard measurements reducing lasik eye surgery risks.

How is My "Custom LASIK" Mapping Communicated to the Laser?

All your customized data is transferred electronically to the laser, where your individualized treatment plan is developed. This plan will exactly match and correct your Vision Problems. In fact, with a customized procedure, many of our patients actually see better than they could with glasses or contacts. Many of our Custom LASIK patients have also reported reduced glare and improved night vision.

Custom LASIK, using WaveFront technology, uses the most advanced technology in the industry. Treatment and Lasik recovery time are typically the same as traditional LASIK.
