Lasik surgery: all-laser procedure
We have adopted this new technique to eliminate the use of any mechanical instruments (microkeratome or blade), which are needed to prepare the corneal flap during the Lasik surgery.
In this technique, a femtosecond laser is only used during the first part of the Lasik surgery namely to prepare the corneal flap.
Our center is among very few elite centers in Lebanon that have femtosecond technology. Worldwide this new technology has been successfully used in more than 100,000 procedures.
In addition, we offer a variety of procedures including those meant to treat complicated or extreme refractive errors.
Our center offers the ICL phakic lens implantation according to international standards. On the other hand, our center is proud to offer full keratoconus management including corneal ring and corneal cross linking:
Intra Stromal Corneal Ring Segments (ICRS)
A microscopic ring or ring segment is implanted into the periphery of the cornea – without touching the cornea. This flattens the central corneal tissue and thereby allows the correction of nearsightedness the intacs' are removable and exchangeable.
The aim of the treatment is to stabilize the cornea and prevent the progression of keratoconus. The treatment of keratoconus with collagen cross linking is based on a significant stiffening of the corneal stroma due to photochemical cross linking of the single collagen fibers. Our center is committed to offer the standard of care in keratoconus management similar scientific symposiums will be part of our practice.
