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.

What are Cataracts? A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. Cataracts are the leading cause of treatable blindness in all areas of the world, especially in adults 55 and older. Contrary to popular belief, a cataract is not a "film" over the eye. Rather it is a gradual thickening of the lens that causes the lens to become so clouded that light is either distorted or cannot reach the back of the eye (the retina) ...
 
 

 
Glaucoma Glaucoma is a group of diseases affecting the optic nerve that results in vision loss and is frequently characterized by raised intraocular pressure (IOP). There are many glaucoma surgeries, and variations or combinations of those surgeries, that facilitate the escape of excess aqueous humor from the eye to lower intraocular pressure, and a few that lower IOP by decreasing the production of aqueous. At ECC, Dr. Pierre Mardelli, a fellowship-trained glaucoma expert, specializes in this type of surgeries: Argon Laser Trabeculectomy (ALT) In ...
 
 

 
With the aquitision of the latest visual field from Octopus, the SOCT from Optopol and the non-mydriatic camera from Topcon, our armementarium is complete for the accurate diagnosis and management of glaucoma.  Of course this is combined with an expert in the field: Dr. Pierre Mardelli, an American Board certified Ophthalmologist and fellowship trained in Glaucoma at the prestigious Washington University in St.Louis. At ECC, we are striving to establish a Glaucoma Center for Excellence, a first in the middle-east region.  ...

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 ...
 
 

 
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 ...

  The eyes are the windows of the soul , but they’re also one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Drooping layers of skin and deep wrinkles on the eyelids can lead to a tired and a sad looking appearance. Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty can return youthful elegance to an individual’s face by removing excess skin and protruding pockets of fat from the upper and/or lower lid. If you’re concerned about the ...

    Crosslinking with riboflavin and UV-A light has proven to be a first-line treatment for people with eye conditions such as Keratoconus, corneal weakness (ectasia). This riboflavin/UVA therapy has been safe thus far. There have been no reported complications in the crystalline lens or retina due to the limitation of UVA transmission through the cornea. In a 3-year study of patients with actively pro- gressing keratoconus, the pattern of increasing mean keratometry ...
